The formation and evolution of stars depends on various physical aspects of stellar matter, including the equation of state (EOS) and transport properties. Although often dismissed as `ideal gas-like' and therefore simple, states occurring in stellar matter are dense plasmas, and the EOS has not been established precisely. EOS constructed using multi-physics approaches found necessary for laboratory studies of warm dense matter give significant variations in stellar regimes, and vary from the…

A measurement of the equation of state of carbon envelopes of white dwarfs
TLDR
Researchers have measured the equation of state of hydrocarbon in a high-density regime, which is necessary for accurate modelling of the oscillations of white dwarf stars and predicts an increase in compressibility due to ionization of the inner-core orbitals of carbon.
