Magnetars origin and progenitors with enhanced rotation

  title={Magnetars origin and progenitors with enhanced rotation},
  author={Sergei B. Popov and Mikhail E. Prokhorov},
Among a dozen known magnetar-candidates there are no binary objects. As an estimate of a fraction of binary neutron stars is about 10% it is reasonable to address the question of solitarity of magnetars, to estimate theoretically the fraction of binary objects among them, and to mark out the most probable companions. We present population synthesis calculations of binary systems. Our goal is to estimate the number of neutron stars originated from progenitors with enhanced rotation, as such…

Rapidly rotating neutron star progenitors
Rotating proto-neutron stars can be important sources of gravitational waves to be searched for by present-day and future interferometric detectors. It was demonstrated by Imshennik that in extreme
Magneto-rotational and thermal evolution of young neutron stars
After a brief review of population synthesis of close-by cooling neutron stars, I focus on the interpretation of dichotomy of spin periods of near-by coolers. The existence of two well separated
Period clustering of anomalous X-ray pulsars
The question of why the observed periods of anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) and soft gamma-ray repeaters (SGRs) cluster in the range 2–12 s is discussed. The possibility that AXPs and SGRs are the
Formation rates and evolution histories of magnetars
We constrain the formation rate of Galactic magnetars directly from observations. Combining spin-down rates, magnetic activity, and association with supernova remnants, we put a 2$\sigma$ limit on
General relativistic models for rotating magnetized neutron stars in conformally flat space–time
The extraordinary energetic activity of magnetars is usually explained in terms of dissipation of a huge internal magnetic field of the order of $10^{15-16}$G. How such a strong magnetic field can
A scenario of the formation of isolated X-ray pulsars with anomalously long period
A scenario of the formation of isolated X-ray pulsars is discussed with an application to one of the best studied objects of this class 1E 161348-5055. This moderately luminous, 1033–1035 erg s−1,
Magnetars: the physics behind observations. A review.
A comprehensive overview of magnetar research, in which the observational results are discussed in the light of the most up-to-date theoretical models and their implications address the more fundamental issue of how physics in strong magnetic fields can be constrained by the observations of these unique sources.
An XMM-Newton and NuSTAR study of IGR J18214-1318: a non-pulsating high-mass X-ray binary with a neutron star
IGR J18214-1318, a Galactic source discovered by the International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory, is a high-mass X-ray binary (HMXB) with a supergiant O-type stellar donor. We report on the
Central Compact Objects in Kes 79 and RCW 103 as ‘Hidden’ Magnetars with Crustal Activity
Abstract We propose that observations of ‘hidden’ magnetars in central compact objects can be used to probe crustal activity of neutron stars with large internal magnetic fields. Estimates based on
Origin of Sources of Repeating Fast Radio Bursts with Periodicity in Close Binary Systems
It is proposed that sources of repeating fast radio bursts with detected periodicity are magnetars with extremely short initial spin periods at the protoneutron star stage, formed in binaries after
