  • We conduct force-free simulations of a single neutron star undergoing orbital motion in flat spacetime, mimicking the trajectory of the star about the center of mass on a compact binary system. Our attention is focused on the kinetic energy being extracted from the orbit by the acceleration of the magnetic dipole moment of the neutron star, and particularly, on how this energy gets distributed within its surrounding magnetosphere. A detailed study of the resulting magnetospheric configurations… CONTINUE READING
