DESCRIPTION:The spectacular observation of gravitational waves from a binar
y neutron star merger by the LIGO-Virgo Collaboration (GW170817)\, and a s
uccessful follow-up campaign by nearly every electromagnetic telescope ush
ered in this new era of multi-messenger astrophysics. Much of the understa
nding of such events arises from numerical modeling. An important part of
this modeling is the inclusion in simulations of neutrino transport\, as d
escribed by Boltzmann's equation. Because of inherent computational resour
ce limits and given the high cost of the transport equations and the compl
exity of neutrino-matter interactions\, there is a trade-off between compu
tational cost and physical realism in all simulations. This workshop cover
s various approaches to solving the neutrino transport problem in compact
object mergers and core-collapse supernovae\, including Monte Carlo method
s\, moment truncation schemes\, and other techniques.
