Description

A set of unified equations of state (EoSs) for neutron-star matter, based on generalised Skyrme energy-density functionals, will be presented. The underlying functionals will be discussed in connection with present data coming from nuclear physics experiments. The structure of neutron stars constructed with these EoSs will be discussed, in connection with both astrophysical observations (such as mass-radius relation and maximum mass) and nuclear-matter parameters (such as the symmetry energy).
