Already more that 40 years ago, it has been suggested that because of the enormous mass densities in the cores of neutron stars, the hadrons in the centers of neutron stars may undergo a phase transition to deconfined quark matter. In this picture, neutron stars could contain cores made of pure (up, down, strange) quark matter which are surrounded by a mixed phase of quarks and hadrons. More than that, because of the competition between the Coulomb and the surface energies associated with the… Expand
Neutrino emissivity in the quark-hadron mixed phase of neutron stars
Abstract.Numerous theoretical studies using various equation of state models have shown that quark matter may exist at the extreme densities in the cores of high-mass neutron stars. It has also beenExpand
Phases of Hadron-Quark Matter in (Proto) Neutron Stars
In the first part of this paper, we investigate the possible existence of a structured hadron-quark mixed phase in the cores of neutron stars. This phase, referred to as the hadron-quark pasta phase,Expand
Neutrino Emissivity in the Quark-Hadron Mixed Phase
In this work we investigate the effect a crystalline quark–hadron mixed phase can have on the neutrino emissivity from the cores of neutron stars. To this end we use relativistic mean-field equationsExpand
Properties of High-Density Matter in Neutron Stars
This short review aims at giving a brief overview of the various states of matter that have been suggested to exist in the ultra-dense centers of neutron stars. Particular emphasis is put on the roleExpand
Phase transitions in neutron stars and their links to gravitational waves
The recent direct observation of gravitational wave event $GW170817$ and its $GRB170817A$ signal has opened up a new window to study neutron stars and heralds a new era of Astronomy referred to asExpand
Mixed phase transition from hypernuclear matter to deconfined quark matter fulfilling mass-radius constraints of neutron stars
A recent solution of the hyperon puzzle by a first order phase transition to color superconducting quark matter is revisited in order to replace the Maxwell construction by an interpolation methodExpand
Chiral pasta: Mixed phases at the chiral phase transition
Interiors of neutron stars are ultradense and may contain a core of deconfined quark matter. Such a core connects to the outer layers smoothly or through a sharp microscopic interface or through anExpand
Astrophysical Aspects of General Relativistic Mass Twin Stars
In this chapter we will introduce an effective equation of state (EoS) model based on polytropes that serves to study the so called "mass twins" scenario, where two compact stars have approximatelyExpand
EMMI rapid reaction task force meeting on quark matter in compact stars
The recent measurement of two solar mass pulsars has initiated an intense discussion on its impact on our understanding of the high-density matter in the cores of neutron stars. A task force meetingExpand
R-mode instability of strange stars and observations of neutron stars in LMXBs
Using a realistic equation of state (EOS) of strange quark matter, namely, the modified bag model, and considering the constraints on the parameters of EOS by the observational mass limit of neutronExpand


Pulsars as Astrophysical Laboratories for Nuclear and Particle Physics
Abstract A forefront of research concerns the exploration of the properties of hadronic matter under extreme conditions of temperature and density, and the determination of the equation of state–theExpand
