Relaxation by thermal conduction of a magnetically confined mountain on an accreting neutron star

25 Dec 2018 Suvorov Arthur G Melatos Andrew

A magnetically confined mountain on the surface of an accreting neutron star simultaneously reduces the global magnetic dipole moment through magnetic burial and generates a mass quadrupole moment, which emits gravitational radiation. Previous mountain models have been calculated for idealized isothermal and adiabatic equations of state... (read more)
