We propose a novel family of equations of state for symmetric nuclear matter based on the induced surface tension concept for the hard-core repulsion. It is shown that having only four adjustable parameters the suggested equations of state can, simultaneously, reproduce not only the main properties of the nuclear matter ground state, but the proton flow constraint up its maximal particle number densities. Varying the model parameters we carefully examine the range of values of incompressibility…

Hard-Core Radius of Nucleons within the Induced Surface Tension Approach

We review the recent approach to model the hadronic and nuclear matter equations of state using the induced surface tension concept, which allows one to go far beyond the usual Van der Waals

The Induced Surface Tension Contribution for the Equation of State of Neutron Stars

We apply a novel equation of state (EoS) that includes the surface tension contribution induced by interparticle interaction and asymmetry between neutrons and protons, to the study of neutron star

Relativistic mean-field hadronic models under nuclear matter constraints

Background: The microscopic composition and properties of infinite hadronic matter at a wide range of densities and temperatures have been subjects of intense investigation for decades. The equation

Determination of the Equation of State of Dense Matter

This work analyzed the flow of matter to extract pressures in excess of 1034 pascals, the highest recorded under laboratory-controlled conditions, and ruled out strongly repulsive nuclear equations of state from relativistic mean field theory and weakly repulsive equation of state with phase transitions at densities less than three times that of stable nuclei.

The Nuclear Equation of State and Neutron Star Masses

Neutron stars are valuable laboratories for the study of dense matter. Recent observations have uncovered both massive and low-mass neutron stars and have also set constraints on neutron star radii.

Correlations between critical parameters and bulk properties of nuclear matter

The present work starts by providing a clear identification of correlations between critical parameters ($T_c$, $P_c$, $\rho_c$) and bulk quantities at zero temperature of relativistic mean-field
