Prof L Rezzolla visiting Dublin

The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) School of Theoretical Physics will host a special event this this Friday (15.12.17) with visiting astrophysics expert, Professor Luciano Rezzolla.

The lecture entitled: “The Physics and Astrophysics of Merging Neutron-Star Binaries” will take place at the Edmund Burke Theatre (Room 1008), Arts Building, Trinity College Dublin from 6pm to 7pm.

Earlier this year, three DIAS scientists participated in the break-through discovery of gravitational waves from the merging of two neutron stars. Professor Rezzolla’s talk will explore the theory of gravity, neutron stars in binary systems, and the process made in modelling these systems.
