Neutron stars as multi-messenger laboratories for dense matter

14 June 2021 — 17 June 2021

The equation of state (EOS) for strongly-interacting matter is of great interest for the 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 become available and contribute to the global understanding of neutron-star physics. Together with nuclear experimental inputs and theoretical advances, this wealth of new results is expected to improve the understanding of the neutron-star core and the supra-nuclear EOS.

This workshop brings together experts in nuclear physics and observations in 2021 to critically examine the new data made available by NICER and by the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA collaboration in order to form a better understanding and to obtain more robust constraints on the EOS of dense matter.

This workshop is supported by the Programme National des Hautes Energies of CNRS/INSU with INP and IN2P3, co-funded by CEA and CNES.
