Neutron stars are remarkable natural laboratories that allow us to investigate the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions under extreme conditions that cannot be reproduced in terrestrial laboratories. This chapter gives a brief pedagogical introduction to the physics of matter at very high densities (i.e. up to several times the density of atomic nuclei) that hopefully could be useful to researchers in pulsars’ astrophysics and related areas.

Abstract

Neutron stars are remarkable natural laboratories that allow us to investigate the fundamental constituents of matter and their interactions under extreme conditions that cannot be reproduced in terrestrial laboratories. This chapter gives a brief pedagogical introduction to the physics of matter at very high densities (i.e. up to several times the density of atomic nuclei) that hopefully could be useful to researchers in pulsars’ astrophysics and related areas.
