Neutron stars provide the key to understanding the equation of state at the highest pressure and density. Constraining the mass-radius relation of neu- tron stars will provide opportunities to test the currently conflicting candidates for the equation of state. Next generation instruments, such...
The equation of state for cold ultra-dense matter has puzzled astrophysicists for decades. This is because the conditions of supra-nuclear density matter, such as those in neutron stars, are not terrestrially replicable. X-ray light curves from accreting neutron stars have proven to be useful...
