"Gravitational wave signature of proto-neutron star convection: I. MHD numerical simulations"

Fatemeh Kayanikhoo (CAMK, Warsaw)

Gravitational waves provide a powerful opportunity to constrain the dynamics in the interior of protoneutron stars during core collapse supernovae. Convective motions play an important role in generating neutron stars magnetic fields, which could explain magnetar formation in the presence of fast rotation. The gravitational wave emission from protoneutron star convection and its associated dynamo can be extracted from state of the art numerical simulations.The talk will be based on the recent work of Raphaël Raynaud, Pablo Cerdá-Durán and Jérôme Guilet,
