Competition of neutrino and gravitational radiation in neutron star formation


WE look here into the possibility that neutrino radiation (rather than gravitational radiation) may be the dominant way by which non-radial pulsations are damped out in a collapsing star. If true, such a result implies that estimates and hopes to detect gravity waves from supernovae explosions may have been overly optimistic.
