Relativistic models of magnetars: the twisted torus magnetic field configuration
We find general relativistic solutions of equilibrium magnetic field configurations in magnetars, extending previous results of Colaiuda et al. Our method is based on the solution of the relativisticExpand

Stochastic background of gravitational waves generated by a cosmological population of young, rapidly rotating neutron stars
We estimate the spectral properties of the stochastic background of gravitational radiation emitted by a cosmological population of hot, young, rapidly rotating neutron stars. Their formation rate asExpand

The Virgo interferometer
The Virgo gravitational wave detector is an interferometer with 3 km long arms in construction near Pisa to be commissioned in the year 2000. Virgo has been designed to achieve a strain sensitivityExpand

New approach to the quasinormal modes of a black hole
We describe a new analytic approach to the problem of black-hole oscillations, which has been investigated numerically thus far. Our treatment is based on a connection between the quasinormal modesExpand

Gravitational wave background from a cosmological population of core-collapse supernovae
We analyse the stochastic background of gravitational radiation emitted by a cosmological population of core-collapse supernovae. The supernova rate as a function of redshift is deduced from anExpand

On the non-radial oscillations of a star
A complete theory of the non-radial oscillations of a static spherically symmetric distribution of matter, described in terms of an energy density and an isotropic pressure, is developed, ab initio,Expand

Gravitational wave asteroseismology reexamined
The frequencies and damping times of the non radial oscillations of non rotating neutron stars are computed for a set of recently proposed equations of state (EOS) which describe matter atExpand

Equation-of-state-independent relations in neutron stars
Neutron stars are extremely relativistic objects which abound in our universe and yet are poorly understood, due to the high uncertainty on how matter behaves in the extreme conditions which prevailExpand

Tidal Love numbers of a slowly spinning neutron star
By extending our recent framework to describe the tidal deformations of a spinning compact object, we compute for the first time the tidal Love numbers of a spinning neutron star to linear order inExpand

Analytic extension of the Schwarzschild-de Sitter metric
SummaryIn this paper, we derive co-ordinates that are regular, respectively, in the neighbourhood of the two horizons which exist in the so-called Schwarzschild-de Sitter solution known in generalExpand
