Invited/Solicited talk in mini-symposium Neutron Stars


Yuri Levin (Columbia University)


I will discuss 3-dimensional simulations of pinning and unpinning of individual vortices and speculate on what happens to them during a glitch. I will also discuss a very simple evolutionary models for pinned vorticity in spinning-down neutron stars, and show that vortex loops and "rivers" inside them arise quite naturally in such models.
