- PublicationDense matter in strong magnetic fields(2014-01-01)
Show more Compact stars having strong magnetic fields (magnetars) have been observationally determined to have surface magnetic fields of order of 10 14-1015 G, the implied internal field strength being several orders larger. We study the equation of state and composition of hypernuclear matter and quark matter - two forms of dense matter in strong magnetic fields. We find that the magnetic field has substantial influence on the properties of hypernuclear matter and quark matter for magnetic field B ≥ 1017 G and B ≥ 1018 G respectively. In particular the matter properties become anisotropic. Moreover, above a critical field B cr, both hypernuclear and quark matter show instability, although the values of Bcr are different for two kinds of matter. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.Show more Scopus© Citations 1 - PublicationDense Matter in Strong Magnetic Field: Covariant Density Functional Approach(2022-01-01)
;Thapa, Vivek Baruah; ;Li, Jia JieSedrakian, ArmenShow more The existence of compact stars with high mass (> 2 M⊙ ) raises the possibility of the appearance of heavy baryons at high-density regimes.With this possibility, we study the effect of a strong magnetic field on the matter composed of baryon-octet and Δ -resonances under strong magnetic fields.The functionals in the hyperonic sector are constrained by the Λ, Ξ- hypernuclei data from terrestrial experiments.Δ -resonance sector is constrained by studies of their scattering off nuclei and heavy-ion collisions.The main effect of the magnetic field is shown to be the oscillations of various matter properties, viz., particle populations and Dirac effective mass with density resulting from the occupation of the Landau level by charged fermions in strong magnetic fields.Show more - PublicationNon-radial oscillations in newly born compact star considering effects of phase transition(2024-05-01)
; ;Thakur, PratikShow more The massive stars end their lives by supernova explosions leaving central compact objects that may evolve into neutron stars. Initially, after birth, the star remains hot and gradually cools down. We explore the matter and star properties during this initial stage of the compact stars considering the possibility of the appearance of deconfined quark matter in the core of the star. At the initial stage after the supernova explosion, the occurrence of non-radial oscillation in the newly born compact object is highly possible. Non-radial oscillations are an important source of gra vitational wa ves (GWs). There is a high chance for GWs from these oscillations, especially the nodeless fundamental (f) mode to be detected by next-generation GW detectors. We study the evolution in frequencies of non-radial oscillation after birth considering phase transition and predicting the possible signature for different possibilities of theoretical compact star models.Show more - PublicationMassive Δ -resonance admixed hypernuclear stars with antikaon condensations(2021-03-03)
;Thapa, Vivek Baruah; ;Li, Jia JieSedrakian, ArmenShow more In this work, we study the effect of (anti)kaon condensation on the properties of compact stars that develop hypernuclear cores with and without an admixture of Δ-resonances. We work within the covariant density functional theory with the parameters adjusted to K-atomic and kaon-nucleon scattering data in the kaonic sector. The density-dependent parameters in the hyperonic sector are adjusted to the data on Λ and Ξ- hypernuclei data. The Δ-resonance couplings are tuned to the data obtained from their scattering off nuclei and heavy-ion collision experiments. We find that (anti)kaon condensate leads to a softening of the equation of state and lower maximum masses of compact stars than in the absence of the condensate. Both the K- and K̄0 condensations occur through a second-order phase transition, which implies no mixed-phase formation. For large values of (anti)kaon and Δ-resonance potentials in symmetric nuclear matter, we observe that condensation leads to an extinction of Ξ-,0 hyperons. We also investigate the influence of inclusion of additional hidden-strangeness σ∗ meson in the functional and find that it leads to a substantial softening of the equation of state and delay in the onset of (anti)kaons.Show more Scopus© Citations 29 - PublicationHybrid stars are compatible with recent astrophysical observations(2023-03-15)
; ;Thapa, Vivek BaruahShow more Compact stars (CS) are stellar remnants of massive stars. Inside CSs the density is so high that matter is in subatomic form composed of nucleons. With an increase of density of matter toward the center of the objects, other degrees of freedom like hyperons, heavier nonstrange baryons, meson condensates may appear. Not only that, at higher densities the nucleons may get decomposed into quarks and form deconfined strange quark matter (SQM). If it is so then CSs may contain SQM in the core surrounded by nucleonic matter forming hybrid stars (HSs). However, the nature and composition of matter inside CSs can only be inferred from the astrophysical observations of these CSs. Recent astrophysical observations in terms of CS mass-radius (M-R) relation and gravitational wave (GW) observation indicate that the matter should be soft in the intermediate density range and stiff enough at higher density range to attain the maximum possible mass above 2M⊙ which is not compatible with pure hadronic equations of states (EOSs). Consequently, we study the HS properties with different models of SQM and find that within vector bag model considering density dependent bag parameter, the model goes well with the astrophysical observations so far.Show more Scopus© Citations 5 - PublicationHypernuclear matter in strong magnetic field(2013-01-17)
; ;Mukhopadhyay, BanibrataSedrakian, ArmenShow more Compact stars with strong magnetic fields (magnetars) have been observationally determined to have surface magnetic fields of order of 1014-1015 G, the implied internal field strength being several orders larger. We study the equation of state and composition of dense hypernuclear matter in strong magnetic fields in a range expected in the interiors of magnetars. Within the non-linear Boguta-Bodmer-Walecka model we find that the magnetic field has sizable influence on the properties of matter for central magnetic field B ≥ 1017 G, in particular the matter properties become anisotropic. Moreover, for the central fields B ≥ 1018 G, the magnetized hypernuclear matter shows instability, which is signalled by the negative sign of the derivative of the pressure parallel to the field with respect to the density, and leads to vanishing parallel pressure at the critical value Bcr ≃ 1019 G. This limits the range of admissible homogeneously distributed fields in magnetars to fields below the critical value Bcr. © 2012 Elsevier B.V..Show more Scopus© Citations 59 - PublicationEquation of State of Strongly Magnetized Matter with Hyperons and Δ-Resonances(2020-12-01)
;Thapa, Vivek Baruah; ;Li, Jia JieSedrakian, ArmenShow more We construct a new equation of state for the baryonic matter under an intense magnetic field within the framework of covariant density functional theory. The composition of matter includes hyperons as well as (Formula presented.) -resonances. The extension of the nucleonic functional to the hypernuclear sector is constrained by the experimental data on (Formula presented.) and (Formula presented.) -hypernuclei. We find that the equation of state stiffens with the inclusion of the magnetic field, which increases the maximum mass of neutron star compared to the non-magnetic case. In addition, the strangeness fraction in the matter is enhanced. Several observables, like the Dirac effective mass, particle abundances, etc. show typical oscillatory behavior as a function of the magnetic field and/or density which is traced back to the occupation pattern of Landau levels.Show more Scopus© Citations 22 - PublicationUpper critical field and (non)-superconductivity of magnetars(2015-09-08)
; Sedrakian, A.Show more We construct equilibrium models of compact stars using a realistic equation of state and obtain the density range occupied by the proton superconductor in strong B-fields. We do so by combining the density profiles of our models with microscopic calculations of proton pairing gaps and the critical unpairing field Hc2 above which the proton type-II superconductivity is destroyed. We find that magnetars with interior homogeneous field within the range 0.1 ≤ B16 ≤ 2, where B16 = B/10^{16}G, are partially superconducting, whereas those with B16 > 2 are void of superconductivity. We briefly discuss the neutrino emissivity and superfluid dynamics of magnetars in the light of their (non)-superconductivity.Show more Scopus© Citations 7 - PublicationMagnetar superconductivity versus magnetism: Neutrino cooling processes(2015-03-30)
; Sedrakian, ArmenShow more We describe the microphysics, phenomenology, and astrophysical implication of a B-field induced unpairing effect that may occur in magnetars, if the local B field in the core of a magnetar exceeds a critical value Hc2. Using the Ginzburg-Landau theory of superconductivity, we derive the Hc2 field for proton condensate taking into the correction (≤30%) which arises from its coupling to the background neutron condensate. The density dependence of pairing of proton condensate implies that Hc2 is maximal at the crust-core interface and decreases towards the center of the star. As a consequence, magnetar cores with homogenous constant fields will be partially superconducting for "medium-field" magnetars (1015≤B≤5×1016G) whereas "strong-field" magnetars (B>5×1016G) will be void of superconductivity. The neutrino emissivity of a magnetar's core changes in a twofold manner: (i) the B-field assisted direct Urca process is enhanced by orders of magnitude, because of the unpairing effect in regions where B≥Hc2; (ii) the Cooper-pair breaking processes on protons vanish in these regions and the overall emissivity by the pair-breaking processes is reduced by a factor of only a few.Show more Scopus© Citations 47 - PublicationBaryonic dense matter in view of gravitational-wave observations(2021-10-01)
;Thapa, Vivek Baruah; Show more The detection of gravitational waves (GWs) from the merger of binary neutron star (NS) events (GW170817 and GW190425) and subsequent estimations of tidal deformability play a key role in constraining the behaviour of dense matter. In addition, massive NS candidates (∼2 M) along with NICER mass-radius measurements also set sturdy constraints on the dense matter equation of state. Strict bounds from GWs and massive NS observations constrain the theoretical models of nuclear matter comportment at large density regimes. On the other hand, model parameters providing the highly dense matter response are bounded by nuclear saturation properties. This work analyses coupling parametrizations from two classes based on covariant density functional models: non-linear and density-dependent schemes. Considering these constraints together, we study possible models and parametrization schemes with the feasibility of exotic degrees of freedom in dense matter which go well with the astrophysical observations as well as the terrestrial laboratory experiments. We show that most parametrizations with non-linear schemes do not support the observations and experiments while density-dependent scheme goes well with both. Astrophysical observations are well explained if the inclusion of heavier non-strange baryons is considered as one fraction of the dense matter particle spectrum.Show more Scopus© Citations 7
