Neutron stars as multi-messenger laboratories for dense matter

20 June 2022 — 24 June 2022

The equation of state (EOS) for strongly-interacting matter is of great interest for nuclear physics and astrophysics, and there are strong theoretical, experimental, and observational efforts to elucidate its properties at supra-nuclear densities. Many new observational data from gravitational wave facilities, X-ray satellites, and nuclear experiments are becoming available. This wealth of new results is expected to improve the understanding of  the  neutron-star  core  and  the  supra-nuclear EOS. In the future, even more data is expected from these observatories, requiring us to examine these individual pieces of data, their robustness and precision, to obtain robust constraints on the EOS of dense matter.

A virtual workshop was organized in June 2021, successfully gathering a large number of participants, but with inherent limits reducing discussions to their simplest forms. This in-person workshop will continue where the virtual meeting ended, and enable us to properly address these topics with discussions among participants as expected before the health crisis.
