Neutrino emission in neutron matter from magnetic moment interactions

Neutrino emission drives neutron star cooling for the first several hundreds of years after its birth. Given the low energy ($\sim$ keV) nature of this process, one expects very few nonstandard

Neutrino Oscillations within the Induced Gravitational Collapse Paradigm of Long Gamma-Ray Bursts

The induced gravitational collapse paradigm of long gamma-ray bursts associated with supernovae (SNe) predicts a copious neutrino–antineutrino ( ) emission owing to the hypercritical accretion

Coronal Neutrino Emission in Hypercritical Accretion Flows

Hypercritical accretion flows onto stellar mass black holes (BHs) are commonly believed to be as a promising model of central engines of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). In this model a certain fraction of

Neutrino emission from nearby supernova progenitors

Neutrinos have an important role for energy loss process during advanced evolution of massive stars. Although the luminosity and average energy of neutrinos during the Si burning are much smaller

MeV, GeV and TeV Neutrinos from Binary-Driven Hypernovae

We analyze neutrino emission channels in energetic (≳1052 erg) long gamma-ray bursts within the binary-driven hypernova model. The binary-driven hypernova progenitor is a binary system composed of a

Probing thermonuclear supernova explosions with neutrinos

Aims: We present neutrino light curves and energy spectra for two representative type Ia supernova explosion models: a pure deflagration and a delayed detonation. Methods: We calculate the neutrino

An effective potential for electron-nucleus scattering in neutrino-pair bremsstrahlung in neutron star crust

We derive an analytic approximation for the emissivity of neutrino-pair bremsstrahlung (NPB) due to scattering of electrons by atomic nuclei in a neutron star (NS) crust of any realistic composition.

Neutrino Oscillations in Neutrino-Dominated Accretion Around Rotating Black Holes

In the binary-driven hypernova model of long gamma-ray bursts, a carbon–oxygen star explodes as a supernova in the presence of a neutron star binary companion in close orbit. Hypercritical (i.e.,



Effects of electron band structure on neutrino pair bremsstrahlung in neutron star crusts

We calculate the rate of energy emission by bremsstrahlung of neutrino pairs by electrons moving in the crystalline lattice of ions in dense matter in the crust of a neutron star. Since the periodic

Neutrino emission due to Cooper pairing of nucleons in cooling neutron stars

The neutrino energy emission rate due to formation of Cooper pairs of neutrons and protons in the superfluid cores of neutron stars is studied. The cases of singlet-state pairing with isotropic

Neutrino-pair bremsstrahlung by electrons in neutron star crusts

Neutrino-pair bremsstrahlung by relativistic degen- erate electrons in a neutron-star crust at densities 10 9 gc m 3 < < 1:5 10 14 gc m 3 is analyzed. The processes taken into account are neutrino

Neutrino pair synchrotron radiation from relativistic electrons in strong magnetic fields

The emissivity for the neutrino pair synchrotron radiation in strong magnetic fields has been calculated both analytically and numerically for high densities and moderate temperatures, as can be

Neutrino-pair emission due to electron-phonon scattering in a neutron star crust

Neutrino-pair bremsstrahlung radiation is considered due to electron--phonon scattering of degenerate, relativistic electrons in a lattice of spherical atomic nuclei in a neutron star crust. The

Neutron star cooling.

In order to study the sensitivity of neutron star cooling to nucleon superfluidity and to discover whether neutron stars can cool quickly enough to satisfy the Crab pulsar blackbody observability

Neutrino emissivities and mean free paths of degenerate quark matter

Neutrino emissivities of neutron stars.

Neutrino emissivities from the modified Urca process, considered previously by Bahcall and Wolf, and neutrino pair bremsstrahlung from nucleon-nucleon scattering, considered previously by Flowers et

Neutrino synchrotron emission from dense magnetized electron gas of neutron stars

We study the synchrotron emission of neutrino pairs by relativistic, degenerate electrons in strong magnetic elds. Particular attention is paid to the case in which the dominant contribution comes

Neutrino emission due to electron bremsstrahlung in superfluid neutron-star cores

We study neutrino energy emission rates (emissivities) due to electron bremsstrahlung produced by $ee$ and $ep$ collisions in the superfluid neutron star cores. The neutrino emission due to $ee$
