The observations of compact star inspirals from LIGO/Virgo provide a valuable tool to study the highly uncertain equation of state (EOS) of dense matter at the densities in which the compact stars reside. It is not clear whether the merging stars are neutron stars or quark stars containing self-bound quark matter. In this work, we explore the allowed bag-model-like EOSs by assuming the merging stars are strange quark stars (SQSs) from a Bayesian analysis employing the tidal deformability… Expand


GW170817: Measurements of Neutron Star Radii and Equation of State.
This analysis expands upon previous analyses by working under the hypothesis that both bodies were neutron stars that are described by the same equation of state and have spins within the range observed in Galactic binary neutron stars. Expand
Bayesian inference of quark star equation of state using the NICER PSR J0030+0451 data

Sound velocity in dense stellar matter with strangeness and compact stars *
The phase state in the intermediate density range of dense matter ($\sim1-10$ times of nuclear saturation density) is both intriguing and unclear, and could have important observable effects in theExpand
Neutron Skins and Neutron Stars in the Multimessenger Era.
A set of realistic models of the equation of state (EOS) that yield an accurate description of the properties of finite nuclei, support neutron stars of two solar masses, and provide a Lorentz covariant extrapolation to dense matter are used to confront its predictions against tidal polarizabilities extracted from the gravitational-wave data.

Critical examination of constraints on the equation of state of dense matter obtained from GW170817
The correlation of the tidal polarizabilities Λ1-Λ2 for GW170817 is predicted by combining dense-matter equations of state (EOSs) that satisfy nuclear physics constraints with the chirp mass and massExpand

Constraints on interquark interaction parameters with GW170817 in a binary strange star scenario
The LIGO/VIRGO detection of the gravitational waves from a binary merger system, GW170817, has put a clean and strong constraint on the tidal deformability of the merging objects. From thisExpand
Strange quark matter and compact stars
Abstract Astrophysicists distinguish between three different kinds of compact stars. These are white dwarfs, neutron stars, and black holes. The former contain matter in one of the densest formsExpand
