Title: Neutron Star Matter Equation of State and Gravitational Waves


Abstract: Recent direct detection of gravitational waves by  advanced LIGO offers the opportunity to study massive hadronic systems, such as neutron stars, from a new perspective. In particular, gravitational waves will supplement  constraints on the equation of state obtained from electromagnetic information. A neutron star with a photon sphere is show to be consistent with present-day data.
