Neutron stars as cosmic laboratories to explore hadronic matter at ultra-high densities

Abstract

We examine the present status of the theoretical calculations for the internal structure of neutron stars, and the connection with the microscopic properties of ultradense hadronic matter. We discuss the possibility to have quark deconfinement phase transition in the core of neutron stars, and we explore some of its astrophysical implications as the quark-deconfinement nova model for gamma-ray bursts.
