Evolution of the Pulsar Magnetosphere
BEFORE the discovery of pulsars, Hoyle, Narlikar and Wheeler1 reasoned that the magnetic neutron star would have a very tenuous atmosphere. In 1969, Goldreich and Julian2 reached a differentExpand

Spinning electric dipole model of ball lightning
An analytical solution is spherical geometry of a very rapidly rotating and oscillating electric dipole model of ball lightning is presented. Total current (conduction plus displacement) is assumedExpand

Classification of Pulsar Rotating Electromagnetic Fields
GIVEN that the pulsar electromagnetic field is stationary in the rotating frame, then, as Mestel has pointed out1, all scalar field quantities and the cylindrical and spherical polar components ofExpand

Contribution to the Co-rotating Magnetic Field Model of the Pulsar
A new general solution of the electromagnetic field equations convenient for rotating field problems is used to analyse the case of low plasma number density. Two localized pulse emitting regionsExpand

On the law of isorotation and laboratory experiments
The well-known magnetohydrodynamic law of isorotation is normally associated with infinite electrical conductivity. Parameters which are relevant to real fluids are the magnetic Reynolds number Rm=Expand

Ball lightning as electromagnetic energy
NONE of the theories1–8 proposed to explain ball lightning seems able to account satisfactorily for the experimental evidence9–14. Jennison15 has suggested that ball lightning is a spherical stableExpand

Electromagnetic field energy containment
An electromagnetic virial relation in cylindrical geometry is derived which shows that limits on field energy containment imposed by the tensile strength of containment structures can beExpand
