Research Interests and Projects
I am a theorethical physicist working in the field of Relativistic Astrophysics. My research focuses on general relativistic magnetohydrodinamical simulations of neutron stars on massively parallel supercomputers. The projects i am actually working on are about:
  • Dynamical bar-mode instability in rapidly rotating neutron stars
  • Magnetic instabilities in differentially rotating neutron stars
  • Binary neutron stars mergers taking into account the effects of magnetic fields
  • F. Loeffler, R. De Pietri, A. Feo, F. Maione and L. Franci, Stiffness effects on the dynamics of the bar-mode instability of neutron stars in full general relativity. Phys. Rev. D 91, 064057 arXiv:1411.1963. DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevD.91.064057
  • R. De Pietri, A. Feo, F. Maione and F. Loeffler, Modeling Equal and Unequal Mass Binary Neutron Star Mergers Using Public Codes. arXiv:1509.08804.
  • F. Maione, R. De Pietri, A. Feo and F. Loeffler, Binary neutron star merger simulations with different initial orbital frequency and equation of state. Classical and Quantum Gravity, 33, no. 17, 175009 (2016) arXiv:1605.03424. DOI: 10.1088/0264-9381/33/17/175009
  • A. Feo, R. De Pietri, F. Maione and F. Loeffler, Modeling Mergers of Known Galactic Systems of Binary Neutron Stars. arXiv:1608.02810.
