Color superconductivity in magnetized  quark matter

Hiranmaya Mishra

Physical Research Laboratory

At high enough baryon densities, when the nucleons are crushed into quark matter, the quark matter that results is expected to be in one of a family of superconducting phases at low temperatures. Such kind of matter could be there in the core of neutron stars. Neutron stars are also expected to have a strong magnetic field. There has been a lot of progress during the last few years on the properties of quark matter in the presence of magnetic field. In the present talk, I shall discuss the current status of color superconducting phase of quark matter in the presence of strong magnetic field. Imposition of charge neutrality conditions here leads to 'gapless' modes. Possible consequences of such modes on transport properties of quark matter will be discussed.
