ABSTRACT
Reports that two California-based physicists have calculated how the structure of a neutron star will be altered when some neutrons are converted into hyperons. Varieties of quark found in protons and neutrons of everyday matter; Standard theory of neutron stars; Deduction of masses of neutron stars that are in the form of pulsars in binary systems.

    The direct Urca process is studied in the presence of kaon condensation. We consider the contributions from both strange and non-strange hadrons. Our calculations indicate that the role of hyperons is as important as the role of non-strange nucleons in the cooling mechanism of neutron stars. We...

    We explore the possible formation of ordered phases in neutron star matter. In the framework of a quantum hadrodynamics model where neutrons, protons and Lambda hyperons interact via the exchange of mesons, we compare the energy of the usually assumed uniform, liquid phase, to that of a...

    We study the hadron-quark phase transition with finite size effects at a finite temperature. For the hadron phase, we adopt a realistic equation of state with the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock theory including hyperons. Properties of the mixed phase are clarified by considering the finite size effects...

    Context. A recent measurement of the mass of PSR J1614-2230 rules out most existing models of the equation of state (EOS) of dense matter that is subjected to the high-density softening caused by either hyperonization or a phase transition to either quark matter or a boson condensate. Aims. We...
