Effect of strong magnetic fields on the pasta phase structure    [PDF]

Rafael Camargo Rodrigues de Lima, Sidney dos Santos Avancini, Constança Providência
The effect of strong magnetic fields on the properties of the pasta structures is calculated within a Thomas Fermi approach using relativistic mean field models to modulate stellar matter. It is shown how quantities such as the size of the clusters and Wigner-Seitz cells, the surface tension and the transition between configurations are affected. It is expected that these effects may give rise to large stresses in the pasta phase if the local magnetic field suffers fluctuations.
