Radial pulsations of neutron stars and strange quark stars with nuclear crust are studied. The avoided crossing phenomenon occurring for the radial modes is found and discussed. Neutron star models are constructed using a realistic equation of state of dense matter and strange star models using a phenomenological bag model of quark matter. The eigenfrequencies of the three lowest modes of linear, adiabatic pulsations are calculated, using the relativistic equations for the radial oscillations.

Key words: dense matter – stars: neutron – stars: oscillations
