Rotating neutron stars in a chiral SU(3) model

  author={Stefan Schramm and D. Zschiesche},
  journal={Journal of Physics G},
We study the properties of rotating neutron stars within a generalized chiral SU(3)-flavour model. The influence of the rotation on the inner structure and the hyperon matter content of the star is discussed. We calculate the Kepler frequency and moments of inertia of the neutron star sequences. An estimate for the braking index of the associated pulsars is given.

Proto-Neutron and Neutron Stars in a Chiral SU(3) Model
A hadronic chiral SU(3) model is applied to neutron and proto-neutron stars, taking into account trapped neutrinos, finite temperature, and entropy. The transition to the chirally restored phase is
Slowly rotating neutron stars and hadronic stars in the chiral SU(3) quark mean-field model
The equations of state for neutron matter, strange and non-strange hadronic matter in the chiral SU(3) quark mean-field model are applied in the study of slowly rotating neutron stars and hadronic
Modeling Hybrid Stars with an SU(3) non-linear sigma model
We study the behavior of hybrid stars by using an extended hadronic and quark SU(3) nonlinear sigma model. The degrees of freedom change naturally, in this model, from hadrons to quarks as the
Attributes of a rotating neutron star with a hyperon core
We study the effect of rotation on the global properties of a neutron star with a hyperon core in an effective chiral model with varying nucleon effective masses within a mean-field approach. The
Do hyperons exist in the interior of neutron stars?
Abstract.In this work we review the role of hyperons on the properties of neutron and proto-neutron stars. In particular, we revise the so-called “hyperon puzzle”, go over some of the solutions
Impact of baryon resonances on the chiral phase transition at finite temperature and density
We study the phase diagram of a generalized chiral SU(3)-flavour model in mean-field approximation. In particular, the influence of the baryon resonances, and their couplings to the scalar and vector
Outer crust of nonaccreting cold neutron stars
The properties of the outer crust of nonaccreting cold neutron stars are studied by using modern nuclear data and theoretical mass tables, updating in particular the classic work of Baym, Pethick,
Hyperons and massive neutron stars: Vector repulsion and SU(3) symmetry
With the discovery of massive neutron stars such as PSR J1614-2230, the question has arisen of whether exotic matter such as hyperons can exist in the neutron star core. We examine the conditions

Neutron dripline calculations for both magnesium nuclei and magnesium + Λ hypernuclei have been carried out in a microscopic framework using a chiral effective model. The results are compared with


Neutron Star Properties in a Chiral SU(3) Model
We investigate various properties of neutron star matter within an effective chiral SU(3)L × SU(3)R model. The predictions of this model are compared with a Walecka-type model. It is demonstrated
Hadrons in dense resonance matter: A chiral SU(3) approach
A nonlinear chiral SU(3) approach including the spin 3/2 decuplet is developed to describe dense matter. The coupling constants of the baryon resonances to the scalar mesons are determined from the
