Resumen: The consensus between observations and theory is that neutron star shows a layered structure determined by an increasing density and temperature with depth. Quantum degeneracy of nuclear matter lays at the basis of the existence of these exotic objects, and the Bose condensation of neutron and proton pairs leads to the emergence of superfluidity in the star interior. However, the precise equation of state of nuclear matter under such extreme conditions, relating its pressure and density, are yet unknown, and many proposals compete to provide a plausible picture compatible with the observational constrains. Currently, the study of neutron stars is becoming an interdisciplinary subject which is receiving an increasing attention due to more available data from precise observations and the possibility of making realistic computational simulations of the superfluid dynamics. This latter feature is crucial to account for the observed low moment of inertia and for the cooling down of the neutr...
