4.5 Going further

As we noted in Section 3.5, the background of GW emission is likely dominated by the population of stars that collapse to black holes. We refer the reader back to this section on progress in this arena.

Baumgarte and collaborators have studied the neutrino signal from the collapse of a hot neutron star down to a black hole [181915]. This collapse phase has a specific neutrino signal, that when compared with the gravitational wave observations, can tell us a lot about the behavior of matter at nuclear densities.
