Clouds of dusts containing hydrogen in abundance are very common in the Universe. For some reason, this system can have gravitational instabilities, later generating a star that can have three possible finals: Black Holes, White Dwarfs or Neutron Stars. The latter was studied in this work, which has the main objective of defining the profile of these stars, by finding the mass x ratio curve...

Hadronic and quark matter - applications in astrophysics

Poster

Recently, several highly magnetized white dwarfs have been observed with fields up to $10^9G$. Strong magnetic fields can change the structure of the star, such as mass, radius, electromagnetic radiation, pair production and also its period of rotation. In this work, we investigated the role of strong magnetic field in white dwarfs. We present the degenerated electron fermi gas to equation of...

Hadronic structure - reactions, production and decays

Poster

In this paper we present a new technique for analysis of transverse momentum dependent parton distribution functions, based on the Bessel weighting formalism. The procedure is applied to studies of the double longitudinal spin asymmetry in semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering using a new dedicated Monte Carlo generator which includes quark intrinsic transverse momentum within the...

Hadronic structure - reactions, production and decays

Poster

Using the Hidden Local symmetry approach we study the $B\bar{B}^*$ and $B^*\bar{B}^*$ interactions for $I=1$. We show that both interactions via one light meson exchange are OZI forbidden. For that reason, we calculate the contributions for those interactions coming from the exchange of two pions, interacting and noninteracting among themselves, and also due to the heavy vector mesons...

The NJL model is an effective model for the strong interaction, which is one of the four fundamental forces in nature [1]. Despite the simplicity of the model, it gives a very good description of some fundamental properties of the underlying theory of quantum chromodynamics, like the dynamical chiral symmetry breaking and its corresponding effective mass generation [2, 3]. Here we propose to...

Hadronic and quark matter - applications in astrophysics

Poster

In this work we present the results of imaging simulations performed with the help of the GEANT4 package for the protoMIRAX hard X-ray balloon experiment. The instrumental background was simulated taking into account the various radiation components and their angular dependence, as well as a detailed mass model of the experiment. We modeled the meridian transits of the Crab Nebula and the...

Hadronic and quark matter - applications in astrophysics

Poster

The study of the inner structure of compact stars requires the knowledge of the equation of state (EoS) for this
kind of exotic stellar matter. This show us how the balance between gravitational attraction and microscopic
interaction by means of the other fundamental interactions gives rise to the state of equilibrium in which they
are observed currently. In the case of quark or hybrid...

Hadronic structure - reactions, production and decays

Poster

Theoretical efforts to describe the pion production at threshold have been made since the new data [1], [2] have shown a disagreement with the description of the earlier work due to Koltun & Reitan (KR) [3]. In this pioneer work of KR, the interaction is split into two parts: one describes the correlations between the nucleons before and after production of a pion and the other is responsible...

Field theoretical approaches to QCD

Higher order quark effective interactions, correcting the usual NJL interaction, are derived by considering polarization effects [1,2,3]. A set of auxiliary fields is introduced one of which yields the scalar chiral quark-antiquark condensate. Fluctuations are shown to provide effective quark couplings. The leading fourth order coupling provides a correction the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model. The...

We present an updated empirical analysis on the ratio of the elastic (integrated) to the total cross section in the c.m. energy interval from 5 GeV to 8 TeV. As in a previous work, we use a suitable analytical parametrization for that ratio (depending on only four free fit parameters) and investigate three asymptotic scenarios: either the black disk limit or scenarios above or below that...

We analyze meson properties within an SU(2) chiral quark model that
includes nonlocal four-fermion couplings. In this work we concentrate
in the description of basic features of nonstrange vector and
axial-vector mesons, considering nonlocal form factors that are based
in lattice QCD results for effective quark propagators.

In this work, we are studying the usual formalism of quantum field theory
of quantum field theory in Light-Front formalism, with the goal of applying
the properties of quantum chromodynamics (QCD) in the scheme nonperturbative.
The electromagnetic structure of the pion , wich is a pseudoscalar meson composed
of a quark-antiquark bound state with total spin zero, is our first object...
