  • The research on the superfluidity of neutron matter can be traced back to Migdal’s observation that neutron stars are good candidates for being macroscopic superfluid systems [1]. And, in fact, during more than two decades of neutron-star physics the presence of neutron and proton superfluid phases has been invoked to explain the dynamical and thermal evolution of a neutron star. The most striking evidence is given by post-glitch timing observations [2],[3], but also the cooling history is… CONTINUE READING
