Abstract: AbstractSimultaneous measurements of the radius and mass of neutron stars (NSs) are expected from the new generation of X-ray telescopes, potentially constraining the NS equation of state (EoS). However using ‘non-unified’ EoSs with the ones for the core and the crust not based on the same nuclear model can introduce an uncertainty on the radius as large as the precision expected from these instruments. I present two solutions to this problem: a large collection of unified EoSs and an approximate and yet preci…
