Sinking of a magnetically confined mountain on an accreting neutron star

Wette, Karl; Vigelius, M; Melatos, Andrew


We perform ideal-magnetohydrodynamic axisymmetric simulations of magnetically confined mountains on an accreting neutron star, with masses ≲0.12 M⊙. We consider two scenarios, in which the mountain sits atop a hard surface or sinks into a soft, fluid
