Description

We study in detail the deconfinement phase transition that takes place in hot/dense nuclear matter in the context of neutron stars and neutron star mergers. For this purpose, the Chiral Mean Field (CMF) model, an effective relativistic model that includes self-consistent chiral symmetry restoration and deconfinement to quark matter, is employed.
