"The QMC Model from Nuclei to Neutron Stars"
by Anthony W. Thomas (CSSM, The University of Adelaide)
Room 745, Science Complex B (MAP H-03)
Zoom registration for participants:
Contrary to the traditional approach to nuclear structure, the quark-meson coupling (QMC) model takes into account the effect of strong relativistic mean-fields on the quark structure of the bound baryons. This immediately leads to a natural saturation mechanism for nuclear matter. We shall review the development of this approach into a modern energy density functional that has proven remarkably successful across the periodic table. This approach also provides a generalisation to hypernuclei without additional parameters. Finally, we discuss the application of the model to the equation of state of the very dense nuclear matter at the core of neutron stars and test this against the latest data on neutron star properties.
