Mr Marco Antonelli


In my presentation I'll describe an analytical two-components model for pulsar rotational dynamics: the aim is to reduce the computationally difficult 3D hydrodynamics to a 1D (radial) problem. The model takes into account consistently for the non-uniform structure of the star and superfluid entrainment. I'll show how this simple model can be used to put a constraint to the mass of the pulsars that display very large glitches (like Vela).
