Abstract: Observations of thermal radiation from neutron stars can potentially provide information about the states of supranuclear matter in the interiors of these stars with the aid of the theory of neutron-star thermal evolution. We review the basics of this theory for isolated neutron stars with strong magnetic fields, including most relevant thermodynamic and kinetic properties in the stellar core, crust, and blanketing envelopes.
Sponsor: The work of A.P. on the effects of strong magnetic fields on blanketing envelopes (Sect. 5.2 and Appendix B) has been supported by the Russian Science Foundation (grant 14-12-00316).
