Energy Emission from a Neutron Star

  title={Energy Emission from a Neutron Star},
  author={F. Pacini},
ALTHOUGH there are still many problems concerning the supernovae, there is little doubt that a very dense stellar core has to be left behind after the explosion (at least in some cases). During the contraction of this core, inverse β reactions take place and transform most of the nuclei and electrons into neutrons. If the mass of the neutron star does not exceed a critical value of about one or two solar masses, a stable equilibrium situation can be reached with the gas pressure balancing the… Expand
Superfluidity in Neutron Stars
MATTER in the interior of a typical neutron star is a mixture of three degenerate interacting quantum liquids—neutrons, protons and electrons, the latter two having a density at most a few per centExpand
Rotating Neutron Stars, Pulsars and Supernova Remnants
I SHALL discuss here some problems connected with theories linking the pulsars to the rotation of neutron stars (ref. 1 and a preprint by L. Woltjer). Because neutron stars can be formed during aExpand
Neutron Stars—Cooling and Transport
Observations of thermal radiation from neutron stars can potentially provide information about the states of supranuclear matter in the interiors of these stars with the aid of the theory ofExpand
On the effect of pion condensates on the spectrum of neutron stars
There is no precise theory describing the structure of neutron stars. However, inside such objects the baryon density is very high and a pion condensation may occur. These condensates, if they exist,Expand
High energy emission from active pulsars
Abstract Nonthermal emission is seen from some pulsars across much of the electromagnetic spectrum, implying acceleration of particles to high energies. The power for this process usually comes fromExpand
Some characteristics of a rapidly rotating magnetized neutron star
The recently discovered1,2 1.5-ms pulsed radio source PSR1937+214 could be close to the onset of rotational instabilities if it is envisaged to be a rotating neutron star which gives interestingExpand
Effect of strong magnetic fields on neutral pion condensation in neutron star matter
We explore within the mean-field theory with TM1 parametrization the possibility of the π0 condensation under strong external magnetic fields in neutron star matter that includes sigma particles. AtExpand
Supernovae and the Interstellar Medium
amount of matter ejected and the bolometric correction to be applied to the optical radiation are very uncertain. The discovery of a pulsar in two supernova remnants (Crab Nebula and Vela X) suggestsExpand
Coherent Synchrotron Emission in the Crab Nebula
RECENT analyses of the electrodynamics of the plasma surrounding a rotating magnetic neutron star1–3 have provided plausible mechanisms for the acceleration of high energy particles in the CrabExpand
Hybrid stars
Recently there have been important developments in the determination of neutron star masses which put severe constraints on the composition and equation of state (EOS) of the neutron star matter.Expand
