The electronpositron portion of the two equations of state are identical. Differences between the two EOS routines originate from the model used for nucleons (interacting nucleons in a liquid dropish model versus noninteracting Boltzmann nucleons), and the model used for the composition. LS Baryon Pressure:
In certain regions of the rhoT plane, contributions from the coulomb lattice terms cause the baryon pressure to become negative. LS Total Pressure:
NSE Baryon Pressure:
Even though the nuclei in the NSEbased model are a perfect gas, the surface isn't planar because of the changing composition. This causes the ripples in the surface. NSE Total Pressure:
LS and NSE Pressures Compared:
