EOS (Equation-Of-State) Manual For Exoplanets
The exoplanet field now abounds with new discoveries of planets and planetary systems. It is of great interest for the scientific community to understand the compositions and internal structures of these new planets outside our own solar system, and then infer their formation scenarios.
In particular, the proper implementation of the equation-of-states of various matters into the calculation of internal structure is crucial. Thus, we have come up with this write-up that provides the detailed steps to turn an equation-of-state (EOS) into a mass-radius relation of exoplanets, and highlight the physics and chemistry involved in these calculations. It must be visualized!
