Executive Summary :

This project aims to resolve some of the important issues related to finite nuclei and Neutron Stars (NS) by combining the data from terrestrial experiments and multi-messenger observations from space through theoretical studies. The project aims to investigate how the precise knowledge of nuclear physics inputs, which governs the behaviour of Equation of State (EoS) at the low-density, impact the properties of the NS.
