Compact object mergers and r-process nucleosynthesis

Andreas Bauswein , GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung Darmstadt
This talk gives a brief overview on compact object mergers. The electromagnetic counterpart of the first unambiguously observed neutron star merger provides very strong evidence that compact object mergers play a major role for the Galactic enrichment by heavy elements formed through the rapid neutron-capture process. I will describe the different channels of mass ejection and nucleosynthesis in compact object mergers and sketch the goals of the corresponding SFB project.
