Unified equations of state for cold non-accreting neutron stars with Brussels-Montreal functionals. II. Pasta phases in semi-classical approximation

12 Jan 2020 Pearson J. M. Chamel N. Potekhin A. Y.

We generalize our earlier work on neutron stars (arXiv:1903.04981), which assumed spherical Wigner-Seitz cells in the inner crust, to admit the possibility of pasta phases, i.e., non-spherical cell shapes. Full fourth-order extended Thomas-Fermi calculations using the density functional BSk24 are performed for cylindrical and plate-like cells... (read more)
