Neutron stars (NSs) contain the densest observable matter in the universe. Within their cores lies QCD matter compressed to multiple times the density of common nuclei. Unfortunately, this matter is too dense to be studied from first-principles nuclear-physics calculations, and not dense enough to be studied using first-principles perturbative-QCD calculations. In this talk, I will detail a...

The properties of dense QCD matter are delineated through the construction of equations of state which should be consistent with QCD calculations in the low and high density limits, nuclear laboratory experiments, and the neutron star observations. These constraints, together with the causality condition of the sound velocity, are used to develop the picture of hadron-quark continuity in which...

Neutron stars are highly magnetized rotating compact stars. In 2010, a neutron star named PSR J1614-2230 has a mass of twice the solar mass (1.97$\pm$0.04M$\odot$). In 2013, a neutron star named PSR J0348+0432 with a mass of 2.01$\pm$0.04M$\odot$ was observed. Such massive neutron stars give strong constraints on the equation of state (EoS) of neutron star matter. In this study, we calculate...
