The appearance of quark matter in the core of hybrid stars is a fundamental issue in such compact stars. The central density of these stars is sufficiently high such that nuclear matter undergoes a further change into other exotic phases that consist of hyperons and quarks. However, the equation of state (EOS) for the high-density matter is still not clear and several recent observations have indicated the limitations of the EOSs; theoretical studies should try to elucidate the EOSs. It is… 

Camouflage of the Phase Transition to Quark Matter in Neutron Stars

It has been known for some time that compact stars containing quark matter can masquerade as neutron stars in the range of measured mass and radius, making it difficult to draw firm conclusions on

Hadronic matter phases and their application to rapidly rotating neutron stars

Neutron stars are commonly considered as astronomical objects having high-density interiors and an inner core region in which various hadronic matter phases are expected. Several studies show that

The purpose of our work is to investigate some new features of a static anisotropic relativistic hybrid compact star composed of strange quark matter (SQM) in the inner core and normal baryonic

Impact of Rotation on Quark-Hadron Hybrid Stars

Many recent observations give restrictions to the equation of state (EOS) for high-density matter. Theoretical studies are needed to try to elucidate these EOSs at high density and/or temperature.

Multiple configurations of neutron stars containing quark matter

The main purpose of this study is to interpret the possibilities of hybrid star configurations under different phase transition paths and provide a general description of the conditions and features

of rotation of rapidly rotating neutron stars (pulsars), which are commonly observed astronomical objects having high-density interiors. Furthermore, neutron stars generate a strong magnetic field.

Roto-Chemical Heating with Fall-Back Disk Accretion in the Neutron Stars Containing Quark Matter

Probing quark matter is one of the important tasks in the studies of neutron stars (NS). Some works explicitly consider the existence of quark matter in the appearance of hybrid star (HS) or pure



Quark-hybrid matter in the cores of massive neutron stars

Using a nonlocal extension of the SU(3) Nambu-Jona Lasinio model, which reproduces several of the key features of Quantum Chromodynamics, we show that mixed phases of deconfined quarks and confined

Region of hadron-quark mixed phase in hybrid stars

Hadron-quark mixed phase is expected in a wide region of the inner structure of hybrid stars. However, we show that the hadron-quark mixed phase should be restricted to a narrower region because of

Compact stars with color superconducting quark matter

We study compact stars that contain quark matter. We look at the effect of color superconductivity in the quark matter on the nuclear-quark matter transition density, mass-radius relationship, and

Quark matter droplets in neutron stars.

We show that, for physically reasonable bulk and surface properties, the lowest energy state of dense matter consists of quark matter coexisting with nuclear matter in the presence of an essentially

Physics and astrophysics of strange quark matter

3-flavor quark matter (strange quark matter; SQM) can be stable or metastable for a wide range of strong interaction parameters. If so, SQM can play an important role in cosmology, neutron stars,

Looking inside neutron stars: Microscopic calculations confront observations

While QCD appears not to be accurately solvable in the regime of interest for neutron star physics, microscopic calculations are feasible at both low and very high densities. In this work, we propose

Mixed-phase induced core-quakes and the changes in neutron-star parameters

We present approximate formulae describing the changes in neutron-star parameters caused by the first-order phase transition to an exotic state (pion or kaon condensate, quark matter) resulting in

Color superconductivity in dense quark matter

Matter at high density and low temperature is expected to be a color superconductor, which is a degenerate Fermi gas of quarks with a condensate of Cooper pairs near the Fermi surface that induces

Magnetic field and quark matter in the core

Magnetic properties of quark matter are discussed in the light of the observation of pulsars. Our works about spontaneous spin polarization and spin density wave are reviewed and their implications
