Fermion Superfluidity in Compact Stars

Sanjay K Reddy

Los Alamos National Laboratory


Recent theoretical developments in dense matter and neutron star evolution has led to renewed interest in Fermion superfluidity - especially in the strong coupling regime. In this talk I will explore the role Fermion pairing in dense matter inside compact stars and on the phase structure of dense QCD. I will highlight recent work on pairing in asymmetric Fermi systems and on the response of superfluids to external perturbations. I will discuss these result in context of observable aspects compact star structure and evolution.
