Research

Mass-Radius Relation of Neutron Stars

  • I learned something important in dealing with numerical calculations. Whenever I do simulations, I should always do a convergence study to see how the grid resolution affects your results. I should try decreasing the radial grid cell size to see if the codes are converging to the same value.

Study

Also if you make a fascinating discovery, your name will be put on the Journal paper.
