- Research history and observations
- EOS constrained by terrestrial data and non-Newtonian gravity in neutron star
- Gravitational radiations from oscillations of neutron star

- A year following Chadwick’s 1932 discovery of neutron, Baade and Zwicky conceived the notion of neutron star in the course of their investigation of supernovae.
- But no searches for neutron stars were mounted immediately following their work. No one knew what to look for, as the neutron star was believed to be cold and much smaller than white dwarfs.
- In 1939 (about 30 years before the discovery of pulsars), Oppenheimer, Volkoff and Tolman first estimated its radius and maximum based on the general relativity.

In 1967 at Cambridge University, Jocelyn Bell observed a strange radio pulse that had a regular period of 1.3373011 seconds, which is believed to be a neutron star formed from a supernova.

Observations: (1) Period and its derivation

Distribution of known galactic disk pulsars in the period–period-derivative plane. Pulsars detected only at x-ray and higher energies are indicated by open stars; pulsars in binary systems are indicated by a circle around the point. Assuming spin-down due to magnetic dipole radiation, we can derive a characteristic age for the pulsar t=p/(2dp/dt), and the strength of the magnetic field at the neutron star surface, Bs= 3.2*1019 (P*dp/dt)0.5 G. Lines of constant characteristic age and surface magnetic field are shown. All MSPs lie below the spin-up line. The group of x-ray pulsars in the upper right corner are known as magnetars.

Radius Determinations for NSs, namely for RXJ1856 and RXJ0720, provide strong constraints for the EoS, as they exclude quark stars, but are consistent with a very stiff EoS.

目前世界上已建立了多个中高能重离子碰撞实验室来测定对称能的密度依赖。包括中国兰州重离子加速器国家实验室、密歇根州立大学国家超导回旋加速器实验室(NSCL)、德国重离子物理研究所(GSI)的FAIR装置等。

Many models predict that the symmetry energy first increases and then decreases above certain supra-saturation densities.

The symmetry energymay even become negative at high densities.

According to Xiao et al. (Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 062502 (2009)), constrained by the recent terrestrial nuclear laboratory data, the nuclear matter could be described by a super softer EOS — MDIx1.

Can not support the observations of neutron stars!

The inverse square-law (ISL) of gravity is expected to be violated, especially at less length scales. The deviation from the ISL can be characterized effectively by adding a Yukawa term to the normal gravitational potential

In the scalar/vector boson (U-boson ) exchange picture,

and

Within the mean-field approximation, the extra energy density and the pressure due to the Yukawa term is

- It is shown that the super-soft nuclear symmetry energy preferred by the FOPI/GSI experimental data can support neutron stars stably if the non-Newtonian gravity is considered;
- Observations of pulsars constrain the g2/2 in a rough range of 50~150 GeV-2.

(II). Oscillation modes

A network of large-scale ground-based laser-interferometer detectors (LIGO, VIRGO, GEO600, TAMA300) is on-line in detecting the gravitational waves (GW).

Theorists are presently try their best to think of various sources of GWs that may be observable once the new ultra-sensitive detectors operate at their optimum level.

GWs from non-radial neutron star oscillations are considered as one of the most important sources.

MNRAS(2001)320,307

The non-radial neutron star oscillations could be triggered by various mechanisms such as gravitational collapse, a pulsar “glitch” or a phase transition of matter in the inner core.

Axial mode: under the angular transformation θ→ π − θ, ϕ → π + ϕ,

a spherical harmonic function with index ℓ transforms

as (−1)ℓ+1 for the expanding metric functions.

Polar mode: transforms as (−1)ℓ

2. R-modes

In Newtonian theory, the fundamental dynamical equation (Euler equations) that governs the fluid motion in the co-rotating frame is

For the rotating stars, the Coriolis force provides a restoring force for the toroidal modes, which leads to the so-called r-modes. Its eigen-frequency is

canonical energy (conserved in absence of radiation and viscosity):

The function Ec govern the stability to nonaxisymmetric perturbations as: (1) if , stable; (2) if , unstable.

For the r-mode, The condition Ec < 0 is equivalent to a change of sign in the pattern speed as viewed in the inertial frame, which is always satisfied for r-mode.

- The fluid motion has no radial component, and is the same inside the star although smaller by a factor of the square of the distance from the center.
- Fluid elements (red buoys) move in ellipses around their unperturbed locations.

Note: The CFS instability is not only existed in GR, but also existed in Newtonian theory.

- The r-modes ought to grow fast enough that they are not completely damped out by viscosity.
- Two kinds of viscosity, bulk and shear viscosity, are normally considered.
- At low temperatures (below a few times 109 K) the main viscous dissipation mechanism is the shear viscosity arises from momentum transport due to particle scattering..
- At high temperature (above a few times 109 K) bulk viscosity is the dominant dissipation mechanism. Bulk viscosity arises because the pressure and density variations associated with the mode oscillation drive the fluid away from beta equilibrium.

Condition: To have an instability we need tgw to be smaller than both tsv and tbv.

(a) Old neutron stars (having crust) in LMXBs with rapid rotating frequency (such as EXO 0748-676) may have high core temperature (arXiv:1107.5064v1.); which hints that there may exist r-mode instability in the core.

(b) The discovery of massive neutron star (PRS J1614-2230, Nature 467, 1081(2010) and EXO 0748-676,Nature 441, 1115(2006)) reminds us restudy the r-mode instability of massive NS, as most of the previous work focused on the 1.4Msun neutron star.

(c) The constraint on the symmetric energy at sub-saturation density range and the core-crust transition density by the terrestrial nuclear laboratory data could provide constraints on the r-mode instability.

(3). Basic equations for calculating r-mode instability window of neutron star with rigid crust

The temperatures are derived from their observed accretion luminosity and assuming the cooling is dominant by the modified Urca neutrino emission process for normal nucleons or by the modified Urca neutrino emission process for neutrons being super-fluid and protons being super-conduction.

The critical temperatures should be constrained in the shaded area by the constrained symmetric energy.
