Spacetime approach to force-free magnetospheres

by Ted Jacobson (U. Maryland)

Wednesday, 4 December 2013 from to (Europe/Zurich)
at CERN ( 4-2-011 - TH common room )
Description
This talk will review how force-free magnetospheres of 
neutron stars and black holes convert rotational to 
electromagnetic energy, and will show how the theory 
becomes remarkably simple and elegant when treated 
relativistically with the help of differential forms.
