This book summarizes the recent progress in the physics and astrophysics of neutron stars and, most importantly, it identifies and develops effective strategies to explore, both theoretically and observationally, the many remaining open questions in the field.

Because of its significance in the solution of many fundamental questions in nuclear physics, astrophysics and gravitational physics, the study of neutron stars has seen enormous progress over the last years and has been very successful in improving our understanding in these fascinating compact objects.

The book addresses a wide spectrum of readers, from students to senior researchers. Thirteen chapters written by internationally renowned experts offer a thorough overview of the various facets of this interdisciplinary science, from neutron star formation in supernovae, pulsars, equations of state super dense matter, gravitational wave emission, to alternative theories of gravity.

The book was initiated by the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action MP1304 "Exploring fundamental physics with compact stars" (NewCompStar).

Prof. Luciano Rezzolla is Chair of Theoretical Astrophysics at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Frankfurt, Germany and Senior Fellow at the Frankfurt Institute of Advanced Studies (FIAS). Since November 2013 he is the Chair of NewCompStar, a COST Action that brings together the leading experts in astrophysics, nuclear physics and ...
