Finite tidal effects in GW170817: Observational evidence or model assumptions?

28 Nov 2019 Kastaun Wolfgang Ohme Frank

After the detection of gravitational waves caused by the coalescence of compact objects in the mass range of neutron stars, GW170817, several studies have searched for an imprint of tidal effects in the signal, employing different model assumptions. One important distinction is whether or not to assume that both objects are neutron stars and obey the same equation of state... (read more)
