Recent observations of giant flares from soft gamma-ray repe at rs have exhibited multiple ∼ 25− 150 Hz oscillations. Frequencies in this range are expected for to r idal shear waves in a neutron star (NS) crust, lending support to Duncan’s proposal that such modes may be excited i n these events. This motivates a reassessment of how these waves reflect the NS structure and what role the ma gnetic field plays in setting their frequencies. We calculate the eigenfrequencies and eigenfunctions of… CONTINUE READING
