Neutron stars. [quantum mechanical processes associated with magnetic fields]
Author and Affiliation:
Canuto, V.(NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, New York, N.Y., United States)
Abstract: Quantum-mechanical processes associated with the presence of high magnetic fields and the effect of such fields on the evolution of neutron stars are reviewed. A technical description of the interior of a neutron star is presented. The neutron star-pulsar relation is reviewed and consideration is given to supernovae explosions, flux conservation in neutron stars, gauge-invariant derivation of the equation of state for a strongly magnetized gas, neutron beta-decay, and the stability condition for a neutron star.
