On the Pressure of a Neutron Gas Interacting with the Non-Uniform Magnetic Field of a Neutron Star

  • V. V. Skobelev

On the basis of simple arguments, practically not going beyond the scope of an undergraduate course in general physics, we estimate the additional pressure (at zero temperature) of degenerate neutron matter due to its interaction with the non-uniform magnetic field of a neutron star. This work has methodological and possibly scientific value as an intuitive application of the content of such a course to a solution of topical problems of astrophysics.
