Neutron stars are a window into the properties of dense nuclear matter.

The first observed binary neutron star merger GW170817, pulse-profile X-ray

observations of PSR J0030+0415 by the Nuclear Star Interior Composition

Explorer (NICER), nuclear physics measurements, and new theoretical

many-body studies of neutron matter now powerfully constrain the properties

of neutron stars and the equation of state of dense matter.

The use of parameterized equations of state, which probe the uncertain regions

of dense matter and revealed several semi-universal relations connecting global

neutron star properties, have helped quantify these constraints.
