We model the quiescent luminosity of accreting neutron stars with several equation of states (EOSs), including the effect of pion condensation and superfluidity. As a consequence of comparison with the observations, we show that the results with Togashi EOS (the strong direct Urca process is forbidden) and TM1e EOS (mass at direct Urca process is $2.06\text{ }\text{ }{M}_{\ensuremath{\bigodot}}$) can explain the observations well by considering pion condensation and the effect of superfluidity… Expand

A study of type I X-ray bursts from an NS accreting pure helium
Using the Modules for Experiments in Stellar Astrophysics code (MESA), we investigate Type I X-ray bursts (XRBs) produced by neutron stars (NSs) accreting pure helium, which are called intermediateExpand
Equations of state for supernovae and compact stars
A review is given of various theoretical approaches for the equation of state (EoS) of dense matter, relevant for the description of core-collapse supernovae, compact stars, and compact star mergers.Expand
Thermal state of transiently accreting neutron stars
We study thermal states of transiently accreting neutron stars (with mean accretion rates u M ∼ 10 −14 −10 −9 Myr −1 ) determined by the deep crustal heating of accreted matter sinking into stellarExpand

Models of crustal heating in accreting neutron stars
Aims. We calculate heating associated with non-equilibrium nuclear reactions in accreting neutron-star crusts, taking into account the suppression of neutrino losses demonstrated recently by Gupta etExpand
Implications of various hadron phases to neutron star phenomena
Effects of various hadron phases on thermal and dynamical properties of neutron stars are studied in connection with astronomical phenomena. In particular, nucleon superfluidity and pion condensationExpand
Cooling of neutron stars in soft X-ray transients
Thermal states of neutron stars in soft X-ray transients (SXRTs) are thought to be determined by "deep crustal heating" in the accreted matter that drives the quiescent luminosity and cooling viaExpand
Further Constraints on Thermal Quiescent X-Ray Emission from SAX J1808.4-3658
We observed SAX J1808.4-3658 (1808), the first accreting millisecond pulsar, in deep quiescence with XMM-Newton and (near simultaneously) Gemini-South. The X-ray spectrum of 1808 is similar to thatExpand
GW170817: Measurements of Neutron Star Radii and Equation of State.
This analysis expands upon previous analyses by working under the hypothesis that both bodies were neutron stars that are described by the same equation of state and have spins within the range observed in Galactic binary neutron stars. Expand
Neutron Star Cooling
▪ Abstract Observation of cooling neutron stars can potentially provide information about the states of matter at supernuclear densities. We review physical properties important for cooling such asExpand
