Neutron Stars: A Novel Equation of State with Induced Surface Tension

  title={Neutron Stars: A Novel Equation of State with Induced Surface Tension},

  journal={The Astrophysical Journal},
A novel equation of state with the surface tension induced by particles’ interactions was generalized to describe the properties of the neutron stars (NSs). In this equation the interaction between particles occurs via the hard core repulsion by taking into account the proper volumes of particles. Recently, this model was successfully applied to the description of the properties of nuclear and hadron matter created in collisions of nucleons. The new approach is free of causality problems and is…

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

Neutron Star Cooling Within the Equation of State With Induced Surface Tension

We study the thermal evolution of neutron stars described within the equation of state with induced surface tension (IST) that reproduces properties of normal nuclear matter, fulfills the proton flow

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

Asteroseismology: Radial oscillations of neutron stars with realistic equation of state

We study radial oscillations of non-rotating neutron stars (NSs) in four-dimensional General Relativity. The interior of the NS was modelled within a recently proposed multicomponent realistic

Equation of State of Quantum Gases Beyond the Van der Waals Approximation

A recently suggested equation of state with the induced surface tension is generalized to the case of quantum gases with mean-field interaction. The self-consistency conditions of such a model and

On the desert between neutron star and black hole remnants.

The occurrence of a desert between neutron star (NS) and black hole (BH) remnants is reviewed. The dependence of stellar remnants on the zero age main sequence (ZAMS) progenitor mass for solar

The Origin of the Transverse Radii of Hyperons at the LHC

Here we show that the effective Gaussian source radii for the proton-hyperon pairs obtained at the LHC follow from the atom-like structure of baryons which is described in the Scale-Symmetric Theory

Magnetic Activity of Solar-Type Stars

Here we described the origin of the magnetic-activity cycles of solar-like cool stars. On the basis of the atom-like structure of baryons, we calculated the ratios of the activity-cycle period to



Effects of Induced Surface Tension in Nuclear and Hadron Matter

Short range particle repulsion is rather important property of the hadronic and nuclear matter equations of state. We present a novel equation of state which is based on the virial expansion for the

Hadron Resonance Gas Model for An Arbitrarily Large Number of Different Hard-Core Radii

We develop a novel formulation of the hadron-resonance gas model which, besides a hard-core repulsion, explicitly accounts for the surface tension induced by the interaction between the particles.

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.

A two-solar-mass neutron star measured using Shapiro delay

Radio timing observations of the binary millisecond pulsar J1614-2230 that show a strong Shapiro delay signature are presented and the pulsar mass is calculated to be (1.97 ± 0.04)M⊙, which rules out almost all currently proposed hyperon or boson condensate equations of state.

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.

Equation of state for dense nucleon matter.

The Argonne ${v}_{14}$ plus Urbana VII Hamiltonian produces a softening in the neutron matter equation of state localized around twice nuclear matter density which may indicate a neutral pion condensate.
