The Nuclear Physics of the Neutron Star Crust


The neutron star crust, the 1 kilometer region on the surface composed of nuclei and superfluid neutrons, is the physical location of the majority of the phenomena observed in neutron stars. The composition of the crust is a fundamental input for the evolution of isolated and accreting neutron stars, and is important for the description of rp-process… (More)
