Liquid and crystalline neutron matter

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

From sixth Texas symposium on relativistic astrophysics; New York, New York, USA (18 Dec 1972). Results of calculations of the ground-state energies of liquid and crystalline neutron matter are presented. It is found that neutron matter will crystallize at a density near normal nuclear density. This results indicates that a large fraction of the interior of a neutron star consists of crystalline neutron matter. An intuitive physical discussion is given to illuminate this result. Furthermore, it is suggested that, contrary to the usual point of view, low-density matter should be regarded as a quantum liquid'' which is almost'' a quantum ... continued below
