39. Equation of State for Neutron Stars based on a microscopic energy density functional : from the outer crust to the core
Prof. Xavier Vinas (Universitat de Barcelona)
3/26/14, 5:00 PM
Within a microscopic approximation the structure of Neutron Stars is usually studied by modelling the homogeneous nuclear matter of the core by a suitable Equation of State, based on a many-body theory, and the crust by a functional based on a more phenomenological approach. We present here the first calculation of Neutron Star overall structure by adopting for the core an Equation of State...

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...

The core-collapse supernova phenomenon, one of the most explosive events in the Universe, presents a challenge to theoretical astrophysics. Of the large variety of forms of matter present in core-collapse supernova, we focus on the transitional region between homogeneous (uniform) and inhomogeneous (pasta) phases. We perform a three-dimensional, finite temperature Skyrme-Hartree-Fock + BCS...
26. Surface properties of nuclei embedded in a nucleon gas in the framework of the Extended Thomas-Fermi theory

It is nowadays well established that the properties of the nuclear effective interaction through the equation of state have a very important influence in different astrophysical phenomena, from the dynamics of the Core Collapse Supernovae, to the cooling of Proto-Neutron Stars and the structure of Neutron Stars. The self-consistent mean-field theory is an appealing framework to establish a...
