On the 17th of August, 2017 came the simultaneous detections of GW170817, a gravitational wave that originated from the coalescence of two neutron stars, along with the gamma-ray burst GRB170817A, and the kilonova counterpart AT2017gfo. Since then, there has been much excitement surrounding the study of neutron star mergers, both observationally, using a variety of tools, and theoretically, with the development of complex models describing the gravitational-wave and electromagnetic signals.

Interpolating detailed simulations of kilonovae: Adaptive learning and parameter inference applications
TLDR
This work starts with a grid of 2D anisotropic simulations of kilonova light curves covering a wide range of ejecta properties, applies adaptive-learning techniques to iteratively choose new simulations and produces high-fidelity surrogate models that allow for continuous evaluation across model parameters while retaining the microphysical details about the ejecta.
Constraining neutron-star matter with microscopic and macroscopic collisions
Interpreting high-energy, astrophysical phenomena, such as supernova explosions or neutron-star collisions, requires a robust understanding of matter at supranuclear densities. However, our knowledge
