The following work studies the effects of the interactions originated from scalars and vectors mesons exchanges in the interior of Neutron Stars. We analyze the differences that appears on masses and radii between stars sustained against gravitational collapse exclusively by the degeneracy pressure of matter and stars that have also the presence of interactions mediated by mesons. In the second case it was used the linear Walecka model in the mean field approximation in order to describe the scalar and vector fields. The macroscopic characteristics of the families of stars were generated by the numerical integration of TOV equations, using computational codes written by the author.
