RATIONALE
The BONN neutron star workshops aim to bring together observers and theoreticians to exchange and discuss new ideas related to neutron star research in a one-day workshop.

 

STRUCTURE OF THE MEETING
As usual, our meeting will start with a 'news' session on highlights from neutron star research. There will be two additional topical sessions related to peculiar supernovae and neutron stars. The conference dinner (optional) is at your own expense. Lunches and coffee breaks are sponsored by the MPIfR.

 

SPECIAL TOPIC 

Peculiar supernovae and neutron stars

  • electron capture supernovae and their possible outcomes
  • the progenitors of ultra-light/ultra-massive neutron stars
  • the outcome of merging white dwarfs 
  • possible connections between extreme supernovae and FRBs
  • advances in SN simulations and predictions (masses, kicks, spins, alignments etc.) 
  • comparison between theory and observations
