In this work we aim at quantifying the influence of different isothermal and thermally-dependent equations of state (EoS) on the computation of the interior of exoplanets. We perform an extensive parameter study to model the interior structure of a vast number of subNeptunian exoplanets of different composition, ranging from super-Earths consisting just of a metallic core and a silicate mantle, to sub-Neptunes including ice and gaseous layers. Each model run is performed with a number of… CONTINUE READING
