An incomparable reference for astrophysicists studying pulsars and other kinds of neutron stars, Theory of Neutron Star Magnetospheres sums up two decades of astrophysical research. It provides in one volume the most important findings to date on this topic, essential to astrophysicists faced with a huge and widely scattered literature.
F. Curtis Michel, who was among the first theorists to propose a neutron star model for radio pulsars, analyzes competing models of pulsars, radio emission models, winds and jets from pulsars, pulsating X-ray sources, gamma-ray burst sources, and other neutron-star driven phenomena. Although the book places primary emphasis on theoretical essentials, it also provides a considerable introduction to the observational data and its organization. Michel emphasizes the problems and uncertainties that have arisen in the research as well as the considerable progress that has been made to date.

First came the discovery of the radio pulsars. These objects are now almost universally believed to be rotating magnetized neutron stars. Next came the discovery of pulsating X-ray sources, even more energetic objects radiating in an entirely different part of the electromagnetic spectrum but nevertheless believed also to be rotating magnetized neutron stars.About the Author:
F. Curtis Michel is the Andrew Hays Buchanan Professor of Astrophysics at Rice University. He has contributed more than 150 articles to the scientific literature and was a scientific astronaut with NASA for several years.
