We show that NS’s with large toroidal B-fields tend naturally to evolve into potent gravitationalwave (gw) emitters. The toroidal field Bt tends to distort the NS into a prolate shape, and this magnetic distortion dominates over the oblateness “frozen into” the NS crust for Bt ∼ > 3.4 × 1012G(νs/300 Hz) . An elastic NS with frozen-in B-field of this magnitude is clearly secularly unstable: the wobble angle between the NS’s angular momentum J i and the star’s magnetic axis niB grow on a… CONTINUE READING
