Abstract

We describe recent progress in the numerical study of the structure of rapidly rotating superfluid neutron star models in full general relativity. The superfluid neutron star is described by a model of two interpenetrating and interacting fluids, one representing the superfluid neutrons and the second consisting of the remaining charged particles (protons, electrons, muons). We consider general stationary configurations where the two fluids can have different rotation rates around a common rotation axis. The previously discovered existence of configurations with one fluid in a prolate shape is confirmed.
