Abstract:

In this contribution nuclear constraints on the equation of state for a neutron star are discussed. A combined fit to nuclear masses and charge radii leads to improved values for the symmetry energy and its derivative at nuclear saturation density, $S_{\rm{v}}= 31$ MeV and $L=68\pm 8$ MeV. As an application the sensitivity of some properties of rotating supramassive neutron stars on the EoS is discussed.
