If you have a question about this talk, please contact Tasos Avgoustidis.

Recent works have argued that the cores of certain white dwarf stars may contain a new kind of quantum liquid—a condensate of charged spin-0 particles. In this talk I will present a field-theoretic approach to studying the properties of this state of matter at finite temperature and the phase transition into this state. I will discuss evidence that the phase transition in white dwarf stars can be first order.
