ASYSOFT EOS – FASTER EQUILIBRATION

- Asysoft: more efficient for concentration gradients + larger fast neutron emission
- Asystiff: more efficient for density gradients + larger n-enrichement of the neck IMFs
- Momentum Dependence: faster dynamics and smaller isodiffusion

- Also useful for Isovector EoS?

Inf. NM

NL→ DDF→NLρ→NLρδ :

more neutron escape and more n→p transformation

(less asymmetry in the source)

Larger isospin effects in NM: - no neutron escape

- Δ’s in chemical equilibrium→less n-p “transformation”

(see D.Blaschke,T. Klaehn)

Lower boundary (LB) leads to too small NS masses!

Flow constraint can be sharpened.

Summary and Conclusions:

- While the Eos of symmetric NM is fairly well determined, the isovector EoS is still rather uncertain (but important for exotic nuclei, neutron stars and supernovae)
- Can be investigated in HIC both at low densities (Fermi energy regime, fragmentation) and high densities (relativistic collisions, flow, particle production)
- Data to compare with are still relatively scarce; it appears that the Iso-EoS is rather stiff.
- Effects scale with the asymmetry – thus reactions with RB are very important
- Additional information can be obtained by cross comparison with neutron star observations
