RECENTLY Rees and Gunn1 suggested that the 30-Hz wave power probably emerging from the Crab Nebula Pulsar NP0532 does not propagate further than a small region around the pulsar with a radius of about 10% of the nebular radius. Beyond this, in the main body of the nebula, the magnetic field is built up in toroidal form to equipartition strength so that the continuum emission from the bulk of the nebula is entirely synchrotron radiation. The axis of this toroid is aligned with the rotational… CONTINUE READING
