@article{Soldateschi2020AxisymmetricEM, title={Axisymmetric equilibrium models for magnetised neutron stars in scalar-tensor theories}, author={J. Soldateschi and Niccolo’ Bucciantini and Luca Del Zanna}, journal={Astronomy \& Astrophysics}, year={2020} }

Among the possible extensions of general relativity that have been put forward to address some long-standing issues in our understanding of the Universe, scalar-tensor theories have received a lot of attention for their simplicity. Interestingly, some of these predict a potentially observable non-linear phenomenon, known as spontaneous scalarisation, in the presence of highly compact matter distributions, as in the case of neutron stars. Neutron stars are ideal laboratories for investigating… Expand
