Abstract : Neutron stars provide us with the largest samples of degenerate matter in the Universe.

Because of the high density of matter in them, understanding these stars requires input from numerous

subfields of physics and I shall begin by showing how their properties may be estimated from elementary

physical arguments. Subsequently, I shall describe how the observation within the past five years

of neutron stars weighing twice as much as our Sun has made it possible to pin down much better

the properties of matter at supranuclear densities.
