Astrophysics of Neutron Stars

Astrophysics of Neutron Stars

by M. M. Lipunov, R. S. Wadhwa (Translator), J. P. Zahn (Editor), Rudolph Kippenhahn (Editor), Martin D. Harwit (Editor)

Editorial Reviews

A description of the current state of experimental and theoretical investigations of neutron stars in all their manifestations: radio pulsars, X-ray pulsars, X-ray bursters, transient X-ray sources, etc. The approach adopted stresses the idea that the astrophysical properties of a neutron star are determined mainly by its interaction with its surroundings, that is, the interaction of the intense intrinsic magnetic field of the neutron star with an accreting plasma. Thus the volume also treats topics in plasma physics and magnetohydrodynamics. A revised and enlarged translation of the original Russian edition (Nauka, Moscow) of 1987. Annotation c.
