Title:

Nuclear Equation of State for Hot Dense Matter

Nuclear equation of state (EOS) is constructed with energy density functional (EDF)and liquid drop model (LDM) technique.Compared with the classical LDM approach containing alpha particle,deutron, triton, and helio are added to construct nuclear EOS. Energy density functional parameters are constrained by theoretical neutronmatter calculation, symmetric nuclear matter properties, and maximum mass ofneutron stars. The nuclear surface tension and the critical temperature necessary for the free energy of finite nuclei are calculated in a consistent way.In this talk, I will present and discuss the current results obtained from LDM and EDF with most recent parameters.

Title:

Cosmic Rays Across the Star-Forming Galaxy Sequence

In this talk I present models for the interaction of cosmic rays withthe neutral, star-forming gas that dominates the mid-planes of MilkyWay-type and larger galaxies. I discuss the mechanisms of cosmic raytransport in this gas, and show that the process can best be describedas Alfvénic streaming combined with a field line random walk. Transportby this mechanism resolves a number of outstanding puzzles about thegamma-ray spectra of starburst galaxies; in particular, it naturallyexplains why these galaxies show a break in spectral slope at ~TeVenergies, without the need to adopt ad hoc advective escape times orinvoke breaks in the cosmic ray injection spectrum. I then work throughthe implications of this mechanism for the importance of cosmic rays assources of pressure support or wind driving in the disks of star-forminggalaxies, showing that cosmic rays cannot be dynamically important instarbursts, but may become so in Milky Way-mass or smaller galaxies.
