  • Each of the potential signals from a black hole–neutron star merger should contain an imprint of the neutron star equation of state: gravitational waves via its effect on tidal disruption, the kilonova via its effect on the ejecta, and the gamma-ray burst via its effect on the remnant disk. These effects have been studied by numerical simulations and quantified by semianalytic formulas. However, most of the simulations on which these formulas are based use equations of state without finite… CONTINUE READING
