Dense Matter in Compact Stars

Dense Matter in Compact Stars
by Andreas Schmitt

Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 146

Description:
Cold and dense nuclear and/or quark matter can be found in the interior of compact stars. It is very challenging to determine the ground state and properties of this matter because of the strong-coupling nature of QCD. I give a pedagogical introduction to microscopic calculations based on phenomenological models, effective theories, and perturbative QCD. I discuss how the results of these calculations can be related to astrophysical observations to potentially rule out or confirm candidate phases of dense matter.
