By means of HARM\_COOL\_EOS, which is our code for conservative relativistic magnetohydrodynamics, we developed a new scheme for the simulation of a system formed after compact binary merger. Our code works with a tabulated equation of state of dense matter, accounts for the neutrino leakage, and follows the mass outflows via the tracer particle method.
We discuss the numerical scheme, and present the recovery method included in our code. We also show results of a numerical simulation, addressed to the post-merger system after the coalescence of binary neutron stars, or a neutron star with a stellar mass black hole. The plasma is very neutron-rich, so the r-process nucleosynthesis in the ejected material may lead to unstable heavy isotopes creation. They are responsible for an electromagnetic signal, observed as a kilonova. In addition, the magnetized, neutrino-driven wind can act as a collimating mechanism for the relativistic jet.
