Magnetic fields in white dwarfs and stellar evolution

Tout, Christopher A; Wickramasinghe, Dayal; Ferrario, Lilia

Description

The surface magnetic field strengths observed in the magnetic Ap, Bp stars (100-20000 G) and in the high field magnetic white dwarfs (106-109 G) cover many decades but nevertheless the range of magnetic fluxes observed in each of these stellar groups is similar. An evolutionary link between them therefore appears plausible. For both groups of stars there is also information on field complexity. The magnetic white dwarfs in general show non-dipole field structures which can be best modelled if...[Show more]
