The physics of neutron stars

A. Yu. Potekhin

Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

Abstract: Topical problems in the physics of and basic facts about neutron stars are reviewed. The observational manifestations of neutron stars, their core and envelope structure, magnetic fields, thermal evolution, masses and radii are briefly discussed along with underlying microphysics.
