Applications are now open for an upcoming workshop, “Solving the Boltzmann Equation for Neutrino Transport in Relativistic Astrophysics” planned for July 8 – 12, 2024 at ICERM, Brown University, US.

An important part of modeling for multi-messenger astrophysics is the inclusion of neutrino transport, as described by Boltzmann’s equation. Because of inherent computational resource limits and given the high cost of the transport equations and the complexity of neutrino-matter interactions, there is a trade-off between computational cost and physical realism in all simulations. This workshop covers various approaches to solving the neutrino transport problem in compact object mergers and core-collapse supernovae, including Monte Carlo methods, moment truncation schemes, and other techniques.
