We study the behavior of hybrid stars by using an extended hadronic and quark SU(3) nonlinear sigma model. The degrees of freedom change naturally, in this model, from hadrons to quarks as the density/temperature increases. At zero temperature, we reproduce massive neutron stars, which contain cores of hybrid matter of 2 km for the nonrotating case and 1.18 and 0.87 km, in the equatorial and polar directions, respectively, for stars that rotate at the Kepler frequency (physical cases lie in… Expand
Modeling Hybrid Stars
We study the so called hybrid stars, which are hadronic stars that contain a core of deconfined quarks. For this purpose, we make use of an extended version of the SU(3) chiral model. Within thisExpand
Deconfinement to Quark Matter in Magnetars
We model magnetars as hybrid stars, which have a core of quark matter surrounded by hadronic matter. For this purpose, we use an extended version of the SU(3) non-linear realization of the sigmaExpand
Modelling hybrid stars in quark-hadron approaches
Abstract.The density in the core of neutron stars can reach values of about 5 to 10 times nuclear matter saturation density. It is, therefore, a natural assumption that hadrons may have dissolvedExpand
Nuclear matter, nuclei, and neutron stars in hadron and quark-hadron models
We develop a unified model of hadrons and quarks. Within this approach we investigate the phase structure of the model as function of temperature and chemical potential. Computing the equation ofExpand
Neutron-Star-Merger Equation of State
In this work, we discuss the dense matter equation of state (EOS) for the extreme range of conditions encountered in neutron stars and their mergers. The calculation of the properties of such an EOSExpand
Neutron star cooling and GW170817 constraint within quark-meson coupling models
In the present work, we used five different versions of the quark-meson coupling (QMC) model to compute astrophysical quantities related to the GW170817 event and the neutron star cooling process.Expand
Effects of Hadron-Quark Phase Transitions in Hybrid Stars within the NJL Model
Observational signatures of the appearance of a mixed phase as a result of modeling a phase transition that mimics the Gibbs formalism are studied and the results with the sharp first-order phase transition obtained using the Maxwell construction are compared. Expand
Quark core impact on hybrid star cooling
In this paper we investigate the thermal evolution of hybrid stars, objects composed of a quark matter core, enveloped by ordinary hadronic matter. Our purpose is to investigate how important theExpand
Cooling of Small and Massive Hyperonic Stars
We perform cooling simulations for isolated neutron stars using recently developed equations of state for their core. The equations of state are obtained from new parametrizations of the FSU2Expand
Evolution of proto-neutron stars with the hadron-quark phase transition
Abstract The Poyakov–Nambu–Jona-Lasinio (PNJL) model was developed recently, which includes both the chiral dynamics and (de)confinement effect and gives a good description of lattice QCD data. InExpand


Novel approach to modeling hybrid stars
We extend the hadronic SU(3) nonlinear sigma model to include quark degrees of freedom. The choice of potential for the deconfinement order parameter as a function of temperature and chemicalExpand
Rotating neutron stars in a chiral SU(3) model
We study the properties of rotating neutron stars within a generalized chiral SU(3)-flavour model. The influence of the rotation on the inner structure and the hyperon matter content of the star isExpand
Proto-Neutron and Neutron Stars in a Chiral SU(3) Model
A hadronic chiral SU(3) model is applied to neutron and proto-neutron stars, taking into account trapped neutrinos, finite temperature, and entropy. The transition to the chirally restored phase isExpand
Nuclei in a chiral SU(3) model
Nuclei can be described satisfactorily in a nonlinear chiral SU(3)-framework, even with standard potentials of the linear $\sigma$-model. The condensate value of the strange scalar meson is found toExpand

An updated version of the PNJL model is used to study the thermodynamics of N{sub f}=2 quark flavors interacting through chiral four-point couplings and propagating in a homogeneous Polyakov loopExpand
The cooling of compact stars
Abstract The cooling of a compact star depends very sensitively on the state of matter at supranuclear densities, which essentially controls the neutrino emission, as well as on the structure of theExpand
Quark matter droplets in neutron stars.
We show that, for physically reasonable bulk and surface properties, the lowest energy state of dense matter consists of quark matter coexisting with nuclear matter in the presence of an essentiallyExpand
Soft equations of state for neutron-star matter ruled out by EXO 0748 - 676
A determination of the mass and radius of the neutron star EXO 0748 - 676 that appears to rule out all the soft equations of state of neutron-star matter, suggesting that condensates and unconfined quarks do not exist in the centres of neutron stars. Expand
Rapid cooling of neutron stars by hyperons and Delta isobars
It is shown that direct Urca processes with hyperons and/or nucleon isobars can occur in dense matter as long as the concentration of Λ hyperons exceeds a critical value that is less than 3% and isExpand
