WG5: Neutron star magnetospheres, acceleration mechanisms, environment and jets
WG 5 Leader: Dr. Roberta Zanin
Task Leader: Dr. Jose’ A. Pons
Task Leader: Dr. Gergely Barnafoldi
PHAROS will aim at answering how can the physics of neutron stars be tested by studying their interaction with the local environment, how can jets be launched in different neutron star systems or progenitors, as well as how can plasma physics in high-field regimes be modelled.
• Compare analytical, radiative and numerical models for pulsar magnetospheres and wind nebulae.
• Determine systematic differences, and verify assumptions and validity.
