Evolutionary implications of a magnetar interpretation for GLEAM-X J162759.5-523504.3

The radio pulsar GLEAM-X J162759.5–523504.3 has an extremely long spin period ( P = 1091 . 17 s), and yet seemingly continues to spin down rapidly ( ˙ P < 1 . 2 × 10 − 9 ss − 1 ). The magnetic field strength that is implied, if the source is a neutron star undergoing magnetic dipole braking, could exceed 10 16 G. This object may therefore be the most magnetised neutron star observed to date. In this paper, a critical analysis of a magnetar interpretation for the source is provided. (i) A minimum…

Future of neutron star studies with fast radio bursts

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) were discovered only in 2007. However, the number of known events and sources of repeating bursts grows very rapidly. In the near future the number of events will be $\gtrsim
