MICRA 2013

The MICRA workshop will bring together researchers in nuclear and neutrino physics, nuclear astrophyiscs, and in numerical modeling of relativistic astrophysical phenomena such as the mergers of neutron stars and core-collapse supernovae.

The overarching goal of the MICRA workshop is to improve the treatment of microscopic physics (neutrino-matter interactions, equations of state, thermonuclear reaction rates) in astrophysical simulations to improve their reliability and predictive power. Multi-messenger signal predictions from simulations will be crucial to interpret observations by the international network of advanced gravitational-wave detectors (to come online around 2015), by current and future neutrino detectors, and by classical astronomical observatories and high-energy satellite missions.
