EoS and phase diagram in a modified PNJL model

We will present constraints on the equation of state of cold, dense matter following from observations of the compact stellar objects, with particular emphasis on mass-radius relations for compact stars. The analysis will be performed within the PNJL framework for quark matter, supplemented with selection of hadronic equations of state. We will discuss the influence of KMT interaction term and modifications of Polyakov loop potential by term dependent on chemical potential on the equation of state of quark matter.
