The maximum mass of a neutron star
Observational identification of black holes as members of binary systems requires the knowledge of the upper limit on the gravitational mass of a neutron star. We use modern equations of state for
ln describing transport phenomena, it is vital to build the conservation laws of number, energy, momentum, and angular momentum into the structure of the approximation used to determine the
The Dense Matter Equation of State from Neutron Star Radius and Mass Measurements
We present a comprehensive study of spectroscopic radius measurements of twelve neutron stars obtained during thermonuclear bursts or in quiescence. We incorporate, for the first time, a large number
Self-Consistent Approximations in Many-Body Systems
The criteria for maintenance of the macroscopic conservation laws of number, momentum, and energy by approximate two-particle correlation functions in manybody systems are investigated. The methods
