What can be learned from a proto-neutron star's mass and radius?

11 Feb 2021 Edwan Preau Aurélien Pascal Jérôme Novak Micaela Oertel

We make extensive numerical studies of masses and radii of proto-neutron stars during the first second after their birth in core-collapse supernova events. We use a quasi-static approach for the computation of proto-neutron star structure, built on parameterized entropy and electron fraction profiles, that are then evolved with neutrino cooling processes...
