Title: Equation of State of Symmetric and Asymmetric Nuclear Matter

Abstract

The equation of state (EoS) of nuclear matter (NM) is an important ingredient for studies of physical phenomena in nuclear physics and astrophysics. Accurate determination of the NM incompressibility coefficient, K, which is directly related to the curvature of the EoS, allows us to better determine the EoS near saturation. We present the current status of determining the value of K from experimental data on compression modes in nuclei.
