Different approaches to the EoS of dense nuclear matter

Equations of States (EOS) are important prerequisites to predict the behavior of nuclear systems. Using measured properties of nuclear systems as input, various models can be designed that determine the tthermodynamic properties of nuclear matter in a wide region of density, temperature, and asymmetry. Different models are onsidered, and the resulting properties are compared. In particular, the region of phase instability and neutron star properties are investigated.
