Talk title: Behavior of matter in strong field regime

Abstract: The gravitational waves from merging binary systems carry unique information about the internal structure of neutron stars, where material is compressed by tremendous gravity to supra-nuclear densities. Under such extreme conditions, novel and largely unexplored phases of matter emerge. I will discuss features of the interplay of matter with strong-field gravity and resulting characteristic signatures in the gravitational waves during a binary inspiral. I will also highlight new insights gained from recent gravitational-wave discoveries, and conclude with an outlook onto the remaining challenges and exciting prospects for the next years, as gravitational-wave science continues to move towards an era of precision physics.
