Abstract

The theory of hot nuclear matter has been developed primarily to help understand some aspects of highly excited nuclei, heavy-ion reactions, supernova and neutron stars. In the next two sections we review some of the basic concepts of quantum statistical mechanics and nuclear forces. The results of rather simplistic calculations of hot nuclear matter and its phase diagram are given in Section IV. Topics of special interest including instabilities in hot nuclear matter and very hot nuclear matter are briefly discussed in sections V–VIII.
