Electromagnetic emission from compact binary mergers

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Why EM emission from NS merger? • Crucial for idenfification of GW sources • LIGO O1 started in 2015 Sep • Radioactively-powered emission • Fainter and redder than expected, but detectable • GRB 130603B => possible constraints on EOS (NS radius) • More realistic simulations are critical (wind components, BHCNS mergers, and⋯) • Prospects for observations • JCGEM: Japanese EM followCup network • Subaru/HSC is important (transient search started).
