Canuto, V., and S.M. Chitre, 1974: Crystallization of dense neutron matter. Phys. Rev. D, 9, 1587-1613, doi:10.1103/PhysRevD.9.1587.

The equation of state for cold neutron matter at high density is studied in the t-matrix formulation and it is shown that energetically it is convenient to have neutrons in a crystalline configuration rather than in a liquid state for values of the density exceeding 1.6×1015 g/cm3. The study of the mechanical properties indicates that the system is stable against shearing stresses. A solid core in the deep interior of heavy neutron stars appears to offer the most plausible explanation of speed-ups observed in the Vela pulsar.
