Краткий обзор статьи: The three-body force (TBF) effect on the neutrino emissivity in neutron star matter and the total neutrino emissivity of neutron stars have been investigated within the framework of the Brueckner-Hartree-Fock approach by adopting the AV18 two-body interaction plus a microscopic TBF. The neutrino emissivity from the direct Urca process turns out to be much larger than that from the modified Urca process. Inclusion of the TBF reduces strongly the density thresholds of the direct Urca processes involving electrons and muons. The TBF effect on the total neutrino emissivity of neutron stars is shown to be negligibly weak for neutron stars with small masses. For neutron stars with large masses, the TBF effect becomes visible and inclusion of the TBF may enhance the total neutrino emissivity by about 50% for neutron stars with a given mass of $M=1.6M_{odot}$.
