Figure 3.19. Shear coefficient C (inunitsof ECoul ) and bend coefficient K3 (inunitsof £Coulr2) of the rod (columnar) phase of neutron star matter versus the filling factor w = (rp/rc)2. The dashed line in the left panel is the approximation given by Eq. (3.62). Based on Pethick & Potekhin (1998).
then be written as (de Gennes & Prost, 1993)
where V^ = (d/dx, d/dy, 0). By considering appropriate types of deformations and calculating corresponding Edef within the generalized Liquid Drop Model, Pethick & Potekhin (1998) found
