Finding the Hybrid Equation of State

After a brief introduction to compact stars a simple class of hybrid equation of state (EoS) with three parameters is investigated concerning the mass-radius relationships of compact stars that will be predicted from it by solving the Tolman-Oppenheimer-Volkoff equations. First results of the Master Thesis project are presented and an outlook is given on how to find the most likely hybrid EoS by a Bayesian analysis of the results using available and future pulsar observations.
