Description

I will review the latest observational results on strongly magnetized neutron stars, underlying the evolutionary connection of these objects with the rest of the isolated pulsar population. In this respect, I will show how the recent discovery of three low magnetic field magnetars was crucial in understanding the evolutionary link between different isolated neutron star classes.
