Abstract: In this work we study the Nambu-Jona-Lasinio model in the SU(2) version with repulsive vector coupling and apply it to quark stellar matter. We discuss the influence of the vector interaction on the equation of state (EoS) and study quark stars that are composed of pure quark matter with two flavors. We show that, increasing the vector coupling, we obtain more massive stars with larger radii for the same central energy density.
