Summer school: “Neutron star mergers for non-experts: GW170817 in the multi-messenger astronomy and FRIB eras”
Recently a neutron star merger was observed with gravitational waves and electromagnetically at frequencies from radio to gamma rays. This single event GW170817 dramatically advances nuclear astrophysics and heralds an exciting new era in multi-messenger astronomy.
To allow a broader audience to better appreciate these developments, we will teach a summer school May 16-18, 2018 at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) in East Lansing, MI.
The school is intended for an inclusive audience of graduate students, post docs, and more senior researchers working in nuclear physics, astrophysics, astronomy and related areas.
