    Dissipative Pulsar Magnetosphere

    Full text link
    Dissipative axisymmetric pulsar magnetosphere is calculated by a direct numerical simulation of the Strong-Field Electrodynamics equations. The magnetic separatrix disappears, it is replaced by a region of enhanced dissipation. With a better numerical scheme, one should be able to calculate the bolometric lightcurves for a given conductivity.Comment: 2 pages, 10 figures, minor changes for the journa
