- HIC scenario:
- - fast neutron emission (mean field)
- NN=>NΔ threshold effects
- nn=>pΔ- (no chemical equilibrium)
- see, e,g, di Toro et al., J.Phys.G (2010)

Ferini et al. (RMF) stiffer for ratio up

Xiao et al. (IBUU) softer “

Feng & Jin (ImIQMD) stiffer “

Xie et al. (ImIBL) softer “

consequence: extremely stiff (soft) solutions

summary and outlook

- L ≈ 60 MeV (γ ≈ 0.6) from nuclear structure and reactions probing densities of ≈ 2/3 ρ0; big expectations on PREXII, CREX (2015)
- increasingly more precise data from neutron-star observations, typically L ≈ 40 MeV; e.g. Steiner, Lattimer and Brown, ApJ (2010)
- high-densities probed in reactions at SIS energies;
- γpot = 0.9 ± 0.4 from FOPI/LAND elliptic flow;
- super-soft ruled out; study of model invariance under way;
- analysis of ASY-EOS experiment in progress!
- kaon and pion ratios interesting probes but results presently
- inconclusive: new activity at RIKEN (Samurai) and MSU;
- HADES kaon data for Ar+KCl and Au+Au potentially useful
- interesting new results from effective field theory (ρ≤ρ0)
- future: tidal polarizability of neutron stars via gravitational waves
