@article{Burgio2008TheEO, title={The equation of state of dense matter : from nuclear collisions to neutron stars}, author={Fiorella Burgio}, journal={Journal of Physics G}, year={2008}, volume={35}, pages={014048} }

The equation of state (EoS) of dense matter represents a central issue in the study of compact astrophysical objects and heavy ion reactions at intermediate and relativistic energies. We have derived a nuclear EoS with nucleons and hyperons within the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock approach, and joined it with quark matter EoS. For that, we have employed the MIT bag model, as well as the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio and the color dielectric models, and found that the NS maximum masses are not larger than 1.7…
