Gravitational Collapse of Compact Astrophysical Objects

    Principal Investigators: Ewald Müller

The aim of project B3 is to provide gravitational wave templates of non-radial stellar core collapse to neutron stars or black holes by means of multidimensional general-relativistic hydrodynamic and magneto-hydrodynamic simulations. The availability of such templates enhances the detectability of the expected weak signals and helps to exploit their information content of the event. The focus of the project is on the appropriate treatment of general relativistic effects including the latest available or to be developed computational tools.

Non-radial stellar core collapse to neutron stars or black holes is one of the most promising sources of gravitational wave bursts very likely detectable with presently operational laser interferometric detectors in case of a galactic event. The measurement of the corresponding wave signal would provide unique and direct information about the dynamics of gravitational collapse and the engine of the resulting supernova explosion. Because of the weakness of the expected wave signal, the availability of accurate theoretical gravitational wave templates is crucial for improving the detectability of such signals and for exploiting their information content of the event. This need still holds even when considering an about a factor of ten more sensitive second-generation gravitational wave detector, like Advanced LIGO, which is expected to become operational in 2015. Hence, the central aim of project B3 is to provide gravitational wave experimentalists with informative wave templates from stellar core collapse. To this end we want to investigate by means of multidimensional general-relativistic hydrodynamic and magneto-hydrodynamic simulations the non-radial gravitational collapse of stellar iron cores to neutron stars or black holes. While the project focuses on the appropriate treatment of general relativistic effects including the latest available or to be developed computational tools, it is also planned to incorporate the relevant microphysics and the neutrino transport physics as accurately as computationally possible.
