Gamma-ray bursts and supernovae: from the central engines to the observer

  A four-week scientific program on extreme explosive events (such as gamma-ray bursts, compact object mergers, core-collapse supernovae) is held at Institut d’Astrophysique Spatiale and sponsored by the Ψ2 initiative of the Paris-Saclay University. In this program we aim to bring together and foster interactions between several communities (core collapse supernovae, gamma-ray bursts, neutron star mergers and magnetars). For this […]
