In outlining the physics of neutron stars, and my good fortune in stumbling upon them, I hope that I have given some idea of the interest and rewards of extending physics beyond the confines of laboratories. These are good times in which to be an astrophysicist. I am also deeply aware of my debt to all my colleagues in the Cavendish Laboratory. Firstly to Sir Martin Ryle for his unique flair in creating so congenial and stimulating a team in which to work. Secondly to Jocelyn Bell for the care… 
SGRs and AXPs as Rotation-Powered Massive White Dwarfs
SGR 0418+5729 is a "Rosetta Stone" for deciphering the energy source of Soft Gamma Ray Repeaters (SGRs) and Anomalous X-ray Pulsars (AXPs). We show a model based on canonical physics and astrophysics
The physics of neutron stars
Topical problems in the physics of and basic facts about neutron stars are reviewed. The observational manifestations of neutron stars, their core and envelope structure, magnetic fields, thermal
50 Years of Pulsars!
A brief, personal, and very incomplete account of 50 years of pulsar astronomy presented at the Conference Dinner for “Physics of Neutron Stars – 2017 – 50 Years After”, held in Saint Petersburg,
The Evolution and Sustenance of Life
These proposals restore the simplicity and public trust in science prevailing c 1900 AD, reinterpreting quantum weirdness and cosmology would redirect funds to conservation, humanitarian projects and diplomacy, ensuring a happy future.

This paper presents an analysis of the forms of response that scientists make when confronted with anomalous data. We postulate that there are seven ways in which an individual who currently holds a
Modèles superfluides d'étoiles à neutrons en relativité générale : applications à la dynamique des pulsars
L'objectif de cette these est d'etudier differents aspects microscopiques et macroscopiques lies a la presence de superfluidite dans les etoiles a neutrons. Dans un premier temps, nous avons calcule
