Composition and stability of hybrid stars with hyperons and quark color-superconductivity
The recent measurement of a $1.97\pm 0.04$ solar-mass pulsar places a stringent lower bound on the maximum mass of compact stars and therefore challenges the existence of any agents that soften the
Kubo formulas for relativistic fluids in strong magnetic fields
Abstract Magnetohydrodynamics of strongly magnetized relativistic fluids is derived in the ideal and dissipative cases, taking into account the breaking of spatial symmetries by a quantizing magnetic
Precession of Isolated Neutron Stars. I. Effects of Imperfect Pinning
We consider the precession of isolated neutron stars in which superfluid is not pinned to the stellar crust perfectly. In the case of perfect pinning, Shaham showed that there are no slowly
Compact Stars with Sequential QCD Phase Transitions.
It is shown that this can give rise to two separate branches of hybrid stars, separated from each other and from the nuclear branch by instability regions, and, therefore, to a new family of compact stars, denser than the ordinary hybrid stars.
Hypernuclear matter in strong magnetic field
Abstract Compact stars with strong magnetic fields (magnetars) have been observationally determined to have surface magnetic fields of order of 10 14 –10 15 G, the implied internal field strength
Nuclear Superconductivity in Compact Stars: BCS Theory and Beyond
This chapter provides a review of microscopic theories of pairing in nuclear systems and neutron stars. Special attention is given to the mean-field BCS theory and its extensions to include effects
Impact of medium effects on the cooling of non-superfluid and superfluid neutron stars.
Neutrino emission from the dense hadronic compo- nent in neutron stars is subject to strong modications due to collectiveeffectsinthenuclearmedium.Weimplementnewes- timates of the neutrino
Color-magnetic flux tubes in quark matter cores of neutron stars
We argue that if color-superconducting quark matter exists in the core of a neutron star, it may contain a high density of flux tubes, carrying flux that is mostly color magnetic, with a small
