Probing the microscopic nuclear matter self-organization processes in the neutron star crust

Abstract : We investigate microscopic self-organization processes of nuclear matter in the outermost layers of neutron star crusts with the DYWAN model. In this framework a pure mean-field description of nuclear dynamics has been performed. Starting from initial crystalline lattices, which are expected in the most external regions, the system organizes itself in exotic structures. The present work focuses on the effects of both the initial lattice symmetries and the nuclear species on the morphology and on the evolution of those structures. The response of the system is analyzed when it is subjected to random fluctuations of the initial lattice.
