Neutron stars, supernovae and supernova remnants.


Neutron stars, supernovae and supernova remnants.

Ed. by Oktay H. Gusienov et al.

Nova Science Publishers


187 pages




Technical advances have led to startling findings in such areas of study as high-energy astrophysics, including intensive work on the shock fronts of supernova remnants. The international contributors of these six papers closely consider these advances as they explain their research on different types of isolated neutron stars and their characteristics, the phenomenon and result of supernovae experiencing core collapse, the magnetic fields of pulsars, the evolution of neutron starts and their magnetic fields, the presence of supernovae remnants in nearby galaxies, and connections between supernovae remnants, neutron stars and supernovae. References are generally up-to-date but readers may wish to verify data independently.
