Phase Transitions of Charged Scalars and White Dwarf Stars
  KTH/Nordita/SU seminar in Theoretical Physics [before December 2013]

Wednesday 20 October 2010
from 11:00 to 12:00
at FA31
Speaker : Rachel Rosen (OKC)
Abstract : Recent works have argued that the cores of certain white dwarf stars may contain a new kind of quantum liquid -- a condensate of charged spin-0 particles. In this talk I will present a field-theoretic approach to studying the properties of this state of matter at finite temperature and the phase transition into this state. I will discuss evidence that the phase transition in white dwarf stars can be first order.
