# Akmal-Pandharipande-Ravenhall equation of state for simulations of supernovae, neutron stars, and binary mergers

@article{Schneider2019AkmalPandharipandeRavenhallEO, title={Akmal-Pandharipande-Ravenhall equation of state for simulations of supernovae, neutron stars, and binary mergers}, author={Andre da Silva Schneider and Constantinos Constantinou and Brian Muccioli and Madappa Prakash}, journal={Physical Review C}, year={2019} }

Differences in the equation of state (EOS) of dense matter translate into differences in astrophysical simulations and their multimessenger signatures. Thus, extending the number of EOSs for astrophysical simulations allows us to probe the effect of different aspects of the EOS in astrophysical phenomena. In this work, we construct the EOS of hot and dense matter based on the Akmal, Pandharipande, and Ravenhall (APR) model and thereby extend the open-source SROEOS code which computes EOSs of… Expand
