The activity of magnetars is powered by their intense and dynamic magnetic fields and has been proposed as the trigger to extragalactic Fast Radio Bursts. Here we estimate the frequency of crustal failures in young magnetars, by computing the magnetic stresses in detailed magneto-thermal simulations including Hall drift and Ohmic dissipation. The initial internal topology at birth is poorly known but is likely to be much more complex than a dipole. Thus, we explore a wide range of initial… Expand
