Abstract

Neutron star crustal matter, whose properties are relevant in many models aimed at explaining observed astrophysical phenomena, has so far always been studied using a mean-field approach. To check the results obtained in this way, a sensible next step is to make use of a realistic nuclear potential. The present paper extends the periodic box Fermi hypernetted chain method to include longitudinal-isospin dependence of the correlations, making feasible a study of asymmetric crustal matter. Results are presented for the symmetry energy, the low-density neutron star equation of state, and the single-particle neutron and proton energies.
