Constraining the nuclear equation of state with GW170817

23 Apr 2018 Soumi De Daniel Finstad James M. Lattimer Duncan A. Brown Edo Berger Christopher M. Biwer

We use gravitational-wave observations of the binary neutron star merger GW170817 to explore the equation of state of matter at super-nuclear densities. We perform Bayesian parameter estimation with the source location and distance informed by electromagnetic observations... (read more)
