# Nuclear Equation of state for Compact Stars and Supernovae

@article{Burgio2018NuclearEO, title={Nuclear Equation of state for Compact Stars and Supernovae}, author={G. Fiorella Burgio and Anthea Francesca Fantina}, journal={arXiv: Nuclear Theory}, year={2018} }

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…
