Neutron stars are known to host extremely powerful magnetic fields. Among its effects, one of the consequences of harbouring such fields is the deformation of the neutron star structure, leading, together with rotation, to the emission of continuous gravitational waves. On the one hand, the details of their internal magnetic fields are mostly unknown. Likewise, their internal structure, encoded by the equation of state, is highly uncertain. Here, we present a study of axisymmetric models of…

Detectability of Continuous Gravitational Waves from Magnetically Deformed Neutron Stars
Neutron stars are known to contain extremely powerful magnetic fields. Their effect is to deform the shape of the star, leading to the potential emission of continuous gravitational waves. The

Quasi-universality of the magnetic deformation of neutron stars in general relativity and beyond
Neutron stars (NSs) harbour extremely powerful magnetic fields, leading to their shape being deformed. The magnetic deformation of NSs depends both on the geometry and strength of their internal
Limiting magnetic field for minimal deformation of a magnetized neutron star
Aims. In this work, we study the structure of neutron stars under the effect of a poloidal magnetic field and determine the limiting largest magnetic field strength that induces a deformation such
ROTATING NEUTRON STAR MODELS WITH MAGNETIC FIELD
We present the first numerical solutions of the coupled Einstein-Maxwell equations describing rapidly rotating neutron stars endowed with a magnetic field. These solutions are fully relativistic and
General Relativistic Mean-Field Dynamo Model for Proto-Neutron Stars
Neutron stars, and magnetars in particular, are known to host the strongest magnetic fields in the Universe. The origin of these strong fields is a matter of controversy. In this preliminary work,
General relativistic models for rotating magnetized neutron stars in conformally flat space–time
The extraordinary energetic activity of magnetars is usually explained in terms of dissipation of a huge internal magnetic field of the order of $10^{15-16}$G. How such a strong magnetic field can
Equilibrium models of relativistic stars with a toroidal magnetic field
We have computed models of rotating relativistic stars with a toroidal magnetic field and investigated the combined e ects of magnetic field and rotation on the apparent shape (i.e. the surface
Iron line from neutron star accretion discs in scalar tensor theories
The Fe K_\alpha fluorescent line at 6.4 keV is a powerful probe of the space-time metric in the vicinity of accreting compact objects. We investigated here how some alternative theories of gravity,
Rapidly rotating neutron stars in scalar-tensor theories of gravity
We present the field equations governing the equilibrium of rapidly rotating neutron stars in scalar-tensor theories of gravity, as well as representative numerical solutions. The conditions for the
Twisted-torus configurations with large toroidal magnetic fields in relativistic stars
Understanding the properties of the internal magnetic field of neutron stars remains a theoretical challenge. Over the last years, twisted-torus geometries have been considered both in Newtonian and
The role of currents distribution in general relativistic equilibria of magnetized neutron stars
Magnetic fields play a critical role in the phenomenology of n eutron stars. There is virtually no observable aspect which is not governed by them. Despite this, only recently efforts have been done
