      A model for a pulsar magnetosphere is formulated based on oscillatory pair creation associated with large‐amplitude oscillations of an electric field, E ∥, parallel to the magnetic field. The amplitude is large enough for a typical particle (electron or positron) to become highly relativistic before slowing down, reversing its direction of motion and becoming highly relativistic.

      Single-pulse radio observations of a glitch in the Vela pulsar show sudden changes in the pulse shape coincident with the glitch, indicating that the glitch could affect the pulsar’s magnetosphere. The pulsar magnetosphere occurs to be divided into regions of different types: (a) the accelerating regions (DP-regions) containing only DP, (b) the capture regions, containing only SP, (3) leaky.

    This monograph is based upon the proceedings of the Summer Institute, Physics of the Magnetosphere, held on the Boston College campus, lune , The pro gram consisted of invited speakers selected by the Editors. An attempt was made to provide comprehensive treatment of all topics of primary relevance to magneto­ spheric physics, but, of course, some areas received greater . n a cycle of papers, starting with the present one, a fundamental possibility of the polarization sounding of a pulsar magnetosphere using pulsar self-radiation as a test signal will be considered.

Jupiter's magnetosphere (the region of space in which Jupiter's magnetic field influences the motion of charged particles) is the largest object in the solar system; it exhibits new phenomena and behaves, in some respects, like a pulsar.

It is a magnetosphere whose physics is dominated by internal sources of plasma and energy.

We argue that the canonical pulsar magnetosphere is strongly dissipative and that a large fraction (up to 30–40 % in an aligned rotator) of the spindown luminosity is redirected towards the equator where it is dissipated into particle acceleration and emission of radiation.

Surprisingly, the chronology of nearly 50 years of the pulsar magnetosphere and pulsar wind research is quite similar to the history of our civilization.

Using this analogy, I have tried to outline the main results obtained in this field. In addition to my talk, the possibility of particle acceleration due to different processes in the pulsar magnetopshere is discussed in more detail.

distribution on the pulsar surface would be uploaded to the equipotential magnetic field lines of the magnetosphere. Quite often, field line breaking near the pulsar is invoked to provide an electron-positron background pair plasma to fill the magnetosphere.

The equation of motion of a charge particle in the magnetosphere is given by ρ d~v dt. Buy Physics of the Pulsar Magnetosphere by Alexandr Gurevich, Vassily Beskin, Yakov Istomin online at Alibris.

We have new and used copies available, in 2 editions - starting at $ Shop now. In this model for pulsar activity the electrons are extracted freely from the star surface above the polar cap region. However, it is not clear how the star can supply all the needed electrons.

An open issue is the current adjustment between the gap current and the global current that depends on the global structure of the pulsar's magnetosphere. Propagation of radio emission in pulsar magnetosphere is reviewed. The effects of polarization transfer, induced scattering and reprocessing to high energies are analysed with an especial emphasis on the implications for the gamma-ray pulsars.

The possibilities of the pulsar plasma diagnostics based on the observed radio pulse characteristics are outlined as well. As an example. We have developed a numerical code for the propagation of different electromagneticmodes in a pulsar magnetosphere filled by a relativistic, streaming electron-positron plasma in astrong, curved magnetic field.

We determine the trajectories, limiting polarization and damping ofthe waves leaving the magnetosphere.A.V. Gurevich is the author of Physics of Microwave Discharges ( avg rating, 0 ratings, 0 reviews, published ), Physics of the Pulsar Magnetospher 5/5(1).
