# BPS Skyrme neutron stars in generalized gravity

@article{Adam2020BPSSN, title={BPS Skyrme neutron stars in generalized gravity}, author={Christoph Adam and Miguel Huidobro and Ricardo A. Vazquez and Andrzej Wereszczynski}, journal={Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics}, year={2020}, volume={2020}, pages={041 - 041} }

We study the coupling of nuclear matter described by the BPS Skyrme model to generalized gravity. Concretely, we consider the Starobinsky model which provides the leading-order correction to the Einstein-Hilbert action. Static solutions describing neutron stars are found both for the full field theory and for the mean-field approximation. We always consider the full Starobinsky model in the nonperturbative approach, using appropriately generalized shooting methods for the numerical neutron star…
