TNTYST(KOST2) neutron matter (zero temperature)
Equation of state (EoS) based on the variational many-body theory with realistic nuclear forces for pure neutron matter at zero temperature is provided. For uniform matter, the EoS is constructed with the cluster variational method starting from the Argonne v18 two-body nuclear potential and the Urbana IX three-body nuclear potential. Non-uniform nuclear matter is treated in the Thomas-Fermi approximation. Alpha particle mixing is also taken into account, see [TNTSYT_17] for details.
