Astronomy & Astrophysics Seminar: Gravitational waves, short gamma-ray bursts and gold
Prof. Udi Nakar, TAU
I will review the updated set of observations of the neutron star merger GW170817. Then I will discuss the current understanding on whether this type of events are the main sources of r-process elements in the Universe and on whether they are the long sought after progenitors of short gamma-ray bursts.
