Abstract: Recent years have seen some significant progress in theoretical studies of the physics of dense matter. Combined with the observational data now available from the successful launch of Chandra and XMM/Newton X-ray space missions as well as various lower-energy band observations, these developments now offer the hope for distinguishing among various competing neutron star thermal evolution models. Consequently, we can now hope to determine various important properties, such as the composition, superfluidity, the equation of state and stellar radius of these stars.
