# 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.
