Neutrino emission significantly affects the evolution of the accretion tori formed in black hole–neutron star mergers. It removes energy from the disk, alters its composition, and provides a potential power source for a gamma-ray burst. To study these effects, simulations in general relativity with a hot microphysical equation of state and neutrino feedback… CONTINUE READING
