Abstract: 

Neutron stars are unique cosmic laboratories for the exploration of matter under extreme conditions of density and neutron-proton asymmetry. Due to their enormous dynamic range, neutron stars are believed to display a myriad of exotic states of matter that are difficult to reproduce under normal laboratory conditions. In this presentation I will discuss how powerful statistical techniques in combination with modern theoretical approaches are essential to our understanding of these fascinating objects.
