"Quark superfluidity in the two-fluid formalism"

Presented by Andreas Schmitt, Vienna Technical University

Friday, June 29, 2012, 2:00 pm — Small Seminar Room, Bldg. 510

Various observables of neutron stars depend on hydrodynamic properties of the matter inside the star. This matter is likely to be a superfluid, for instance in the color-flavor locked (CFL) phase of quark matter. I will discuss the nontrivial superfluid properties of CFL and, in particular, present a "translation" between microscopic, field-theoretical calculations and the two-fluid picture of a relativistic superfluid.
