Dr Andrei Beloborodov (Columbia University)


Mechanisms of energy dissipation in magnetars will be discussed, including dissipation inside and outside the neutron star. Different modes of dissipation are responsible for various components of magnetar activity: persistent emission and bursts, thermal and nonthermal X-ray emission, and low-frequency emission.
