Abstract

Neutron stars, the end point of the life of massive stars, are cosmic laboratories for various fields of physics, in particular for nuclear physics of cold and dense matter. The very high densities inside neutron stars can not be reproduced on Earth. Nevertheless, modeling the thermal evolution of both isolated and accreting neutron stars enables to put constraints on the poorly known composition, structure, superfluid and thermal properties of their interior.
