Among the possible extensions of general relativity that have been put forward to address some long-standing issues in our understanding of the Universe, scalar-tensor theories have received a lot of attention for their simplicity. Interestingly, some of these predict a potentially observable non-linear phenomenon, known as spontaneous scalarisation, in the presence of highly compact matter distributions, as in the case of neutron stars. Neutron stars are ideal laboratories for investigating… Expand
Quasi-universality of the magnetic deformation of neutron stars in general relativity and beyond
Neutron stars are known to host extremely powerful magnetic fields. Among its effects, one of the consequences of harbouring such fields is the deformation of the neutron star structure, leading,Expand
Detectability of Continuous Gravitational Waves from Magnetically Deformed Neutron Stars
Neutron stars are known to contain extremely powerful magnetic fields. Their effect is to deform the shape of the star, leading to the potential emission of continuous gravitational waves. TheExpand
Magnetic deformation of neutron stars in scalar-tensor theories
Scalar-tensor theories are among the most promising alternatives to general relativity that have been developed to account for some long standing issues in our understanding of gravity. Some of theseExpand
