"Gravitational Waves as a Tool to Investigate Neutron Star Structure"
ABSTRACT:
The new generation of Gravitational Wave detectors, including in particular Laser Interferometers as LIGO, is now becoming fully operative. This will offer the possibility to confirm the existence of the waves predicted by General Relativity and it will also provide the nuclear and astrophysics communities with a new tool to investigate the inner structure of compact stellar objects.
