This Special Issue is based on selected contributions to the International Workshop "Infinite and Finite Nuclear Matter" (INFINUM-2020). However, it is also open to other contributions on this topic. The goal of INFINUM-2020 is to bring together researchers studying various aspects of the physics of atomic nuclei and neutron star physics, stimulating the interaction between the two communities. In the new era of multimessenger astronomy opened by the detection of gravitational waves (GWs) from a binary neutron star merger and its electromagnetic counterpart, the gamma-ray burst and the associated kilonova, it is extremely important to understand the interplay between the strong interaction in the dense medium and GW observables.
Nuclear matter, as an extrapolation of finite nuclei to an infinite particle number, is a product of the same strong interaction, but free of the surface effects that play an essential role in atomic nuclei. Understanding nuclear matter in its various phases, including deconfined quark matter phases, is crucial for the description of neutron stars. The neutron star interiors, spanning over a wide range of densities, represent an excellent playground for studying the fundamental forces of nature under extreme conditions, which cannot be reproduced on Earth.
Studies of atomic nuclei play a central role in our understanding of the fundamental forces of nature and the emergent phenomena occurring at various physical scales. Nuclear experiments can test the standard model of particle physics via weak interaction processes, search for new physics, and study fundamental symmetries. Nuclear structure, decays, and nuclear reactions determine the origin of elements produced in neutron star mergers and star evolution.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Universe is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
