Oscillations of nuclear and quark matter

by Massimo Mannarelli (LNGS)


We discuss the low energy excitations of nuclear and quark matter at low temperature and high baryonic density.
We focus on two distinct oscillations: the radial oscillations of compact stars and the hydrodynamic phonon-like oscillations of quark matter. For the radial oscillations we present a novel procedure for the evaluation of the stellar deformation.  In both cases we map our results to a  gravity analog model for the description of the propagation of the low energy oscillations  in a dense medium.
