We study the effects of the gapless color–flavor locked (gCFL) phase on the equation of state of strongly interacting matter in the range of baryonic chemical potential involved in a compact star. We analyze the possibility of a phase transition from hadronic matter to gCFL quark matter and we discuss, for different values of the strange quark mass and diquark coupling strength, the existence of a gCFL phase in quark or hybrid stars. The mass–radius relation and the structure of compact stars…

Burning of a hadronic star into a quark or a hybrid star
We study the hydrodynamical transition from a hadronic star into a quark or a hybrid star. We discuss the possible mode of burning, using a fully relativistic formalism and realistic equations of

Phase diagram of dense neutral three-flavor quark matter
Abstract We study the phase diagram of dense, locally neutral three-flavor quark matter as a function of the strange quark mass, the quark chemical potential, and the temperature, employing a general
Novel phases and transitions in color flavor locked matter
We analyze the phases of dense quark matter at nonzero quark masses. We map out the phase diagrams for charged quark matter as well as charge neutral matter containing leptons. We find that in Color
Nonstrange hybrid compact stars with color superconducting matter
Realistic nonstrange hybrid compact stars with color superconducting quark matter in their interior are constructed. It is shown that a positively charged two-flavor color superconducting phase could
COOLING OF NEUTRON STARS WITH COLOR SUPERCONDUCTING QUARK CORES
We show that within a recently developed nonlocal chiral quark model the critical density for a phase transition to color superconducting quark matter under neutron star conditions can be low enough
Neutron stars and the transition to color superconducting quark matter
Abstract We explore the relevance of color superconductivity inside a possible quark matter core for the bulk properties of neutron stars. For the quark phase we use a Nambu–Jona-Lasinio (NJL) type
Phase diagram of neutral quark matter: Self-consistent treatment of quark masses
We study the phase diagram of dense, locally neutral three-flavor quark matter within the framework of the Nambu\char21{}Jona-Lasinio model. In the analysis, dynamically generated quark masses are
How do chiral condensates affect color superconducting quark matter under charge neutrality constraints
We investigate the effects of the dynamical formation of the chiral condensates on color superconducting phases under the electric and color neutrality constraints at vanishing temperature. We shall
Effects of color superconductivity on the structure and formation of compact stars
We show that if color superconducting quark matter forms in hybrid or quark stars it is possible to satisfy most of the recent observational boundaries on the masses and radii of compact stellar
Color superconducting quark matter core in the third family of compact stars
We investigate first order phase transitions from $\beta$-equilibrated hadronic matter to color flavor locked quark matter in compact star interior. The hadronic phase including hyperons and
Enforced electrical neutrality of the color-flavor locked phase.
We demonstrate that quark matter in the color-flavor locked phase of QCD is rigorously electrically neutral, despite the unequal quark masses, and even in the presence of an electron chemical
