  • DTP/TALENT 2024, Nuclear Theory for Astrophysics, July 15 – August 2 2024, Trento

    DTP/TALENT 2024, Nuclear Theory for Astrophysics, July 15 – August 2 2024, Trento Nuclear physics and astrophysics are strongly linked through neutron stars, compact objects that represent the densest form of matter in the universe. Neutron stars also have strong synergies to nucleosynthesis and the origin of the heaviest elements in the cosmos. This TALENT school will cover: 1) the equation of state of neutron-rich matter and new constraints inferred from nuclear theory, experiment and observations, 2) core-collapse supernova as the birthplace of neutron stars, and 3) neutron star mergers and gravitational waves to probe the neutron-star interior.
