Constraining the neutron star equation of state and the Hubble constant using existing and upcoming astrophysical observations
Neutron Stars are the densest known objects in the visible universe. They have been observed in several electromagnetic bands and have also been detected in gravitational waves as the binary neutron star merger event GW170817. These observations have led to a better understanding of their interiors, environments, and evolution. In this lecture, I will discuss the current understanding of the neutron star equation of state as it is derived from all available astrophysical observations. At the end of my talk, I will also present a method for inferring the Hubble constant solely from gravitational wave signals from a binary neutron star merger, even when the associated electromagnetic counterparts are missing.
