The FRIB-TA Summer School: Dense matter in Astrophysics will take place in an on-line format due to travel restrictions surrounding Covid-19. The school will focus on dense matter in astrophysics, such as the matter in the interior of neutron stars and the one created in supernova explosions and neutron star mergers, along with comparisons with the matter created in laboratories. There will be lectures from the following experts, together with interactive activities:
- Veronica Dexheimer (Kent State University): introduction to modeling the core of neutron stars
- Luke Roberts (Michigan State University): the physics of supernova explosions and neutron star mergers
- Pawel Danielewicz (Michigan State University): laboratory constraints for the equation of state of neutron stars
- Rodrigo Negreiros (Federal Fluminense University, Brazil): general relativity (including the formalism to describe stellar rotation and magnetic fields) and stellar cooling
- Thomas Klähn (California State University Long Beach): deconfined quarks and phase transitions in the core of neutron stars
Please note that the target group for this school is graduate students. Participation in this event is pending approval.
The school is organized by the FRIB Theory Alliance.
