  4. Abstract

    We report on the effects of strong magnetic fields on neutrino emission in the modified Urca process. We show that the effect of Landau levels on the various Urca pairs affects the neutrino emission spectrum and leads to an angular asymmetry in the neutrino emission. For low magnetic fields, the Landau levels have almost no effect on the cooling. However, as the field strength increases, the electron chemical potential increases resulting in a lower density at which Urca pairs can exist. For intermediate field strength, there is an interesting interference between the Landau level distribution and the Fermi distribution. For high enough field strength, the entire electron energy spectrum is eventually confined to a single Landau level producing dramatic spikes in the emission spectrum.

    We study the v\bar v\-pair emission from electrons and protons in a relativistic quantum approach. In this work we calculate the luminosity of the v\bar v\-pairs emitted from neutron-star-matter with a strong magnetic field, and find that this luminosity is much larger than that in the modified Urca process. The v\bar v\-pair emission processes in strong magnetic fields significantly contribute to the cooling of the magnetars.
