Hardon-Quark Hybrid Stars Constructed by the Nonlinear σ-ω-ρ Mean-Field Model and MIT-Bag Model


Density-dependent relations among saturation properties of symmetric nuclear matter and hyperonic matter, properties of hadron-(strange) quark hybrid stars are discussed by applying the conserving nonlinear s-w-r hadronic mean-field theory. Nonlinear interactions that will be renormalized as effective coupling constants, effective masses and sources of meson equations of motion are constructed self-consistently by maintaining thermodynamic consistency to the mean-field approximation. The coupling constants expected from the hadronic mean-field model and SU (6) quark model for the vector coupling constants are compared; the coupling constants exhibit different density-dependent results for effective masses and binding energies of hyperons, properties of hadron and hadron-quark stars. The nonlinear s-w-r hadronic mean-field approximation with or without vacuum fluctuation corrections and strange quark matter defined by MIT-bag model are employed to examine properties of hadron-(strange) quark hybrid stars. The hadron-(strange) quark hybrid stars become more stable at high densities compared to pure hadronic and pure strange quark stars.
