New Simulations Could Help in Hunt for Massive Mergers of Neutron Stars, Black Holes

Scientists have developed new computer models to explore what happens when a black hole joins with a neutron star, the superdense remnant of an exploded star. A participant in the research from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is working to build increasingly sophisticated models of neutron star mergers and supernovae through his involvement in the US Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project.
