Modelling the dynamics of superfluid neutron stars

  • N. Andersson
Conference paper

Abstract

In this brief summary I describe our recent work on superfluid neutron star dynamics. I review results on shear viscosity, hyperon bulk viscosity, vortex mediated mutual friction and the modelling of multifluid systems in general. For each problem I provide a set of questions that need to be addressed by future work.
