© 2019 Author(s). With central densities as high as 5-10 times the nuclear saturation density, neutron stars exhibit extreme conditions that cannot be observed elsewhere. They are ideal astrophysical laboratories for probing the composition and properties of cold, ultra-dense matter. We shall discuss taking into account currently available data from observation, how to reveal possible sharp phase transitions in dense neutron star cores.
