Neutron star mergers are among the most promising sources of gravitational waves for advanced ground-based detectors. These mergers are also expected to power bright electromagnetic signals, in the form of short gamma-ray bursts, infrared/optical transients powered by r-process nucleosynthesis in neutron-rich material ejected by the merger, and radio emission from the interaction of that ejecta with the interstellar medium. Simulations of these mergers with fully general relativistic codes are… 
Impact of an improved neutrino energy estimate on outflows in neutron star merger simulations
Binary neutron star mergers are promising sources of gravitational waves for ground-based detectors such as Advanced LIGO. Neutron-rich material ejected by these mergers may also be the main source
Spectral classification of gravitational-wave emission and equation of state constraints in binary neutron star mergers
The first detection of gravitational waves from a binary neutron star merger (GW170817) and the accompanying electromagnetic emission has impressively advanced our understanding of the merger process
Magnetically Inspired Explosive Outflows from Neutron-star Mergers
Binary neutron-star mergers have long been associated with short-duration gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). This connection was confirmed with the first coincident detection of gravitational waves together
Observing Gravitational Waves From The Post-Merger Phase Of Binary Neutron Star Coalescence
We present an effective, low-dimensionality frequency-domain template for the gravitational wave signal from the stellar remnants from binary neutron star coalescence. A principal component
Observing cosmological binary mergers with next generation neutrino and gravitational wave detectors
We discuss the potential of detecting thermal neutrinos from matter-rich binary mergers, via a decades-long multimessenger campaign involving a Mt-scale water Cherenkov neutrino detector and one or
Astrophysical implications of neutron star inspiral and coalescence
The first inspiral of two neutron stars observed in gravitational waves was remarkably close, allowing the kind of simultaneous gravitational wave and electromagnetic observation that had not been
Dynamical ejecta from precessing neutron star-black hole mergers with a hot, nuclear-theory based equation of state
Neutron star-black hole binaries are among the strongest sources of gravitational waves detectable by current observatories. They can also power bright electromagnetic signals (gamma-ray bursts,
Properties of Neutrino-driven Ejecta from the Remnant of a Binary Neutron Star Merger: Pure Radiation Hydrodynamics Case
We performed general relativistic, long-term, axisymmetric neutrino radiation hydrodynamics simulations for the remnant formed after a binary neutron star merger, which consists of a massive neutron
Dynamical Mass Ejection from Binary Neutron Star Mergers
We present fully general-relativistic simulations of binary neutron star mergers with a temperature and composition dependent nuclear equation of state. We study the dynamical mass ejection from both
Testing merging of dark exotic stars from gravitational waves in the multi-messenger approach
We discuss possible implications of the recent detection by the LIGO and VIRGO collaboration of the gravitational-wave event GW170817, the signal of which is consistent with predictions in general


Prospects For High Frequency Burst Searches Following Binary Neutron Star Coalescence With Advanced Gravitational Wave Detectors
The equation of state plays a critical role in the physics of the merger of two neutron stars. Recent numerical simulations with microphysical equation of state suggest the outcome of such events
Mergers of binary neutron stars (NSs) are among the most promising gravitational wave (GW) sources. Next generation GW detectors are expected to detect signals from NS mergers within about 200 Mpc.
Remnant massive neutron stars of binary neutron star mergers: Evolution process and gravitational waveform
Massive (hypermassive and supramassive) neutron stars are likely to be often formed after the merger of binary neutron stars. We explore the evolution process of the remnant massive neutron stars and
Black Hole-Neutron Star Mergers as Central Engines of Gamma-Ray Bursts.
Hydrodynamic simulations of the merger of stellar mass black hole-neutron star binaries are compared with mergers of binary neutron stars and the use of a physical nuclear equation of state allows us to include the effects of neutrino emission.
We present VULCAN/2D multigroup flux-limited-diffusion radiation-hydrodynamics simulations of binary neutron star mergers, using the Shen equation of state, covering ≳ 100 ms, and starting from
Transient Events from Neutron Star Mergers
Mergers of neutron stars (NS + NS) or neutron stars and stellar-mass black holes (NS + BH) eject a small fraction of matter with a subrelativistic velocity. Upon rapid decompression, nuclear-density
Spectral properties of the post-merger gravitational-wave signal from binary neutron stars
Extending previous work by a number of authors, we have recently presented a new approach in which the detection of gravitational waves from merging neutron star binaries can be used to determine the
Neutrino-driven winds from neutron star merger remnants
We present a detailed, three-dimensional hydrodynamic study of the neutrino-driven winds that emerge from the remnant of a neutron star merger. Our simulations are performed with the Newtonian,
Gamma-ray bursts as collimated jets from neutron star/black hole mergers
THE distribution of more than 150 γ-ray bursts detected by the BATSE experiment is isotropic on the sky but radially non-uniform1,2. This raises the possibility that bursts are cosmological (at z≲l)
High‐resolution calculations of merging neutron stars – II. Neutrino emission
The remnant resulting from the merger of two neutron stars produces neutrinos in copious amounts. In this paper we present the neutrino emission results obtained via Newtonian, high-resolution
