Abstract: We present various properties of nuclear and compact-star matter, comparingthe predictions from two kinds of phenomenological approaches: relativisticmodels both with constant and density-dependent couplings andnon-relativistic Skyrme-type interactions. We mainly focus on the liquid-gasinstabilities that occur at sub-saturation densities, leading to thedecomposition of the homogeneous matter into a clusterized phase. Such study isrelated to the description of neutron-star crust at zero temperature and ofsupernova dynamics at finite temperature.
