The equation of state (EoS) of hot and dense matter is a fundamental input to describe static and dynamical properties of neutron stars, core-collapse supernovae and binary compact-star mergers. We review the current status of the EoS for compact objects, that have been studied with both ab-initio many-body approaches and phenomenological models. We limit ourselves to the description of EoSs with purely nucleonic degrees of freedom, disregarding the appearance of strange baryonic matter and/or… Expand

A Modern View of the Equation of State in Nuclear and Neutron Star Matter
This study shows that whereas no correlation exists between the tidal deformability and the value of the nuclear symmetry energy at saturation for anyvalue of the NS mass, very weak correlations seem to exist with the derivative of thenuclear symmetry energy and with the nuclear incompressibility.
