Complex dynamics of transcriptional response: how do cells get on the fast lane ?
Andrei Gruzinov, New-York University
A Lorentz-covariant non-linear extension of the classical
Maxwell theory has been developed which apparently solves the
long-standing astrophysical problem of pulsar magnetospheres. The new
theory allows to calculate the large-scale electromagnetic field
surrounding the pulsar and predicts not only the spin-down rate of the
pulsar but alsothe amount of emitted radiation.
