Abstract Nuclear matter and compact neutron stars are studied in the framework of the non-linear derivative (NLD) model which accounts for the momentum dependence of relativistic mean-fields. The generalized form of the energy–momentum tensor is derived which allows to consider different forms of the regulator functions in the NLD Lagrangian. The thermodynamic consistency of the NLD model is demonstrated for arbitrary choice of the regulator functions. The NLD approach describes the bulk… 
Neutron star equations of state with optical potential constraint

Effects of the equation of state on the bulk properties of maximally rotating neutron stars
Neutron stars are among the densest known objects in the universe and an ideal laboratory for the strange physics of super-condensed matter. While the simultaneously measurements of mass and radius

Probing isospin- and momentum-dependent nuclear effective interactions in neutron-rich matter
Abstract.The single-particle potential for nucleons and hyperons in neutron-rich matter generally depends on the density and isospin asymmetry of the medium as well as the momentum and isospin of the

Momentum dependent mean-fields of hyperons & antihyperons
The in-medium properties of hyperons and antihyperons are studied with the Non-Linear Derivative (NLD) model and focus is made on the momentum dependence of strangeness optical potentials. The NLD
Constraints on the equation of state from the stability condition of neutron stars
The stellar equilibrium and collapse, including mainly white dwarfs, neutron stars and super massive stars, is an interplay between general relativistic effects and the equation of state of nuclear
New Parametrizations for a Model with Nonlinear Derivative Couplings
We propose three parameter sets for the Lagrangian with nonlinear derivative couplings in the relativistic mean field theory. The properties of finite nuclei and nuclear matter are explored. The
