Plastic damping of Alfv\'en waves in magnetar flares and delayed afterglow emission

13 May 2015 Li Xinyu Columbia University Beloborodov Andrei M. Columbia University

Magnetar flares generate Alfv\'en waves bouncing in the closed magnetosphere with energy up to $\sim 10^{46}$ erg. We show that on a 10-ms timescale the waves are transmitted into the star and form a compressed packet of high energy density... (read more)
