Keywords: nuclear star matter; thermal conductivity; nucleonic conductivity; sampling nucleons' energy

This investigation explores the energy transportation occurring in nuclear star matter, as it undergoes the “topological” transition to the “pasta” regime. We measured the nucleonic thermal conductivity by sampling the energy of nucleons along a well-established heat flux. Our results show that a dramatic change in the conductivity accompanies the “pasta” breakdown. A decoupling phenomenon is also observed for the nucleonic conductivity, depending on the “pasta” topology.
