Born-Infeld magnetars: larger than classical toroidal magnetic fields and implications for gravitational-wave astronomy

26 Apr 2018 Pereira Jonas P. Coelho Jaziel G. de Lima Rafael C. R.

Magnetars are neutron stars presenting bursts and outbursts of X- and soft-gamma rays that can be understood with the presence of very large magnetic fields. Thus, nonlinear electrodynamics should be taken into account for a more accurate description of such compact systems... (read more)
