**Phil Rosenfield, Fridolin Weber, Horst Lenske**Rotating Neutron Stars**Outline**• Neutron stars: a short synopsis • The structure of neutron stars • Modeling neutron stars • The equation of state • Rotating or non-rotating • Two results • Conclusions**Introduction**A neutron star is left over from the supernova of a star not massive enough to leave a black hole.**Introduction**• Mass: 1-2 MSun • Radius: 10 - 15 km • Huge magnetic fields • Extremely dense • Fastest Rotation Rate: 1122 Hz • 107−9 in a typical galaxy Objects that don’t make sense, thatcan’t be explained with current theories, are the guides thatlead us to better understanding our universe. If I could get my bike tires going that fast, I’d be moving at 1,700mph. On the surface of a typical sized neutron star, particles aremoving at 80%c!**Modeling Neutron Stars**Non Rotating Rotating Poles shrink, equator bulges Maximum rotation rate Frame dragging • Spherically Symmetric • Curved space-time**Results**Mass-Equatorial Radius Period-Mass Rotation More mass • Rotation Larger Radius**Conclusions**• Rotation matters • These equations of state can explain the fastest spinning neutron stars What’s Next Going to grad school – hope to look for more neutron stars
