Summary of "Quarkyonic Matter and Neutron Stars."

We consider quarkyonic matter to naturally explain the observed properties of neutron stars. We argue that such matter might exist at densities close to that of nuclear matter, and at the onset, the pressure and the sound velocity in quarkyonic matter increase rapidly. In the limit of large number of quark colors N_{c}, this transition is characterized by a discontinuous change in pressure as a function of baryon number density. We make a simple model of quarkyonic matter and show that generically the sound velocity is a nonmonotonic function of density-it reaches a maximum at relatively low density, decreases, and then increases again to its asymptotic value of 1/sqrt[3].

Tidal Deformabilities and Radii of Neutron Stars from the Observation of GW170817.

We use gravitational-wave observations of the binary neutron star merger GW170817 to explore the tidal deformabilities and radii of neutron stars. We perform a Bayesian parameter estimation with the s...

GW170817: Measurements of Neutron Star Radii and Equation of State.

On 17 August 2017, the LIGO and Virgo observatories made the first direct detection of gravitational waves from the coalescence of a neutron star binary system. The detection of this gravitational-wav...

Radio Signals from Axion Dark Matter Conversion in Neutron Star Magnetospheres.

We show that axion dark matter may be detectable through narrow radio lines emitted from neutron stars. Neutron star magnetospheres host both a strong magnetic field and a plasma frequency that increa...

Signatures of Quark-Hadron Phase Transitions in General-Relativistic Neutron-Star Mergers.

Merging binaries of neutron-stars are not only strong sources of gravitational waves, but also have the potential of revealing states of matter at densities and temperatures not accessible in laborato...

Identifying a First-Order Phase Transition in Neutron-Star Mergers through Gravitational Waves.

We identify an observable imprint of a first-order hadron-quark phase transition at supranuclear densities on the gravitational-wave (GW) emission of neutron-star mergers. Specifically, we show that t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A phylum of the most familiar marine invertebrates. Its class Stelleroidea contains two subclasses, the Asteroidea (the STARFISH or sea stars) and the Ophiuroidea (the brittle stars, also called basket stars and serpent stars). There are 1500 described species of STARFISH found throughout the world. The second class, Echinoidea, contains about 950 species of SEA URCHINS, heart urchins, and sand dollars. A third class, Holothuroidea, comprises about 900 echinoderms known as SEA CUCUMBERS. Echinoderms are used extensively in biological research. (From Barnes, Invertebrate Zoology, 5th ed, pp773-826)

Aggregates of matter in outer space, such as stars, planets, comets, etc. and the properties and processes they undergo.

The scattering of NEUTRONS by matter, especially crystals, with accompanying variation in intensity due to interference effects. It is useful in CRYSTALLOGRAPHY and POWDER DIFFRACTION.
