PAIRING CORRELATIONS AND THERMODYNAMIC PROPERTIES OF INNER CRUST MATTER
Jérôme Margueron1, N. Sandulescu2
(2012)

In this review paper we discuss the effects of pairing correlations on inner crust matter in the density region where nuclear clusters are supposed to coexist with nonlocalised neutrons. The pairing correlations are treated in the framework of the finite temperature Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov approach and using zero range nuclear forces. After a short introduction and presentation of the formalism we discuss how the pairing correlations affect the structure of the inner crust matter, i.e., the proton to neutron ratio and the size of Wigner-Seitz cells. Then we show how the pairing correlations influence, though the specific heat of neutrons, the thermalization of the crust in the case of a rapid cooling scenario.
