MERLIN funded

The MERLIN project is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and the Narodowe Centrum Nauki (NCN) under the EU weave initiative.

The MERLIN project will provide the theoretical foundations for future observations by investigating the magnetic field dynamics in neutron star interiors and the role of turbulence in its evolution. Our team
will employ Einstein’s general relativity to model the development of the super strong magnetic fields and create accurate astrophysical models. The project will develop at Warsaw (Poland) and Jena (Germany) in the groups of Prof.dr.Haskell and Prof.dr.Bernuzzi. The two teams will combine their expertise in pulsar astrophysics and in numerical simulations of neutron stars.
