What we do
We study neutron stars in different aspects. We consider different
physical processes related to superdense matter in neutron star interiors,
surface layers, atmospheres, magnetospheres, superstrong
magnetic fields; we construct plausible theoretical models for interpretation
of observations of neutron stars in multiwavelength bands. In particular,
we study isolated cooling neutron stars, radio and X-ray pulsars, gamma
and X-ray bursters and Soft Gamma Repeaters. The main projects we are
working on now are:
- Internal structure and thermal evolution of isolated neutron stars.
- Physical processes in cores and envelopes of neutron stars.
- Evolution of magnetic fields of neutron stars.
- Thermal emission from the atmospheres of neutron stars.
- Electrodynamics of neutron stars and their magnetospheres.
