Abstract

Low temperature of the phase transition into the quark-gluon plasma correspond to low values of the bag model constant and to absolutely stable strange quark matter. Some of the observed pulsars are identified quite reliably as neutron stars. If strange matter is stable, the central density of these pulsars is to be smaller that critical density of the phase transition into the nonstrange quark matter. The nonstrange quark matter being formed turns to more stable strange matter on a weak interaction timescale converting neutron stars into strange stars. The requirement of stability of old and newly born neutron stars is used to constrain the bag model constant and the critical temperature of the phase transition into the quark-gluon plasma at zero chemical potential.
