[NT/RIKEN seminar] Quarkyonic model for neutron stars

by Srimoyee Sen (Iowa State University)


The observed mass and radius relations of neutron stars can be explained remarkably well using a model of dense matter known as quarkyonic matter. I describe how the quarkyonic model can arise dynamically from an excluded volume model for nuclear interactions. I also discuss how thermal effects can be incorporated in such a model.
