Session 33 - Neutron Stars & White Dwarfs.
Oral session, Monday, January 15
Salon del Rey South, Hilton
A method for modeling accretion onto a closed magnetosphere employing the numerical method of SPH is presented. This method allows the dynamic interaction of the magnetosphere and surrounding field-free plasma to be simulated. Results obtained for some steady configurations are compared with previous work for closed magnetospheres. Future application of the technique, with a view to modeling spin up and spin down of pulsars is discussed. Other possible applications and enhancements of the method are outlined.
