This book is a collation of the contributions presented at a major conference on isolated neutron stars held in London in April 2006. Forty years after the discovery of radio pulsars it presents an up-to-date description of the new vision of isolated neutron stars that has emerged in recent years. The great variety of isolated neutron stars, from pulsars to magnetars, is well covered by descriptions of recent observational results and presentations of the latest theoretical interpretation of these data.2 Thermal emission from magnetized surface layers of a neutron star 2.1 Neutron star atmosphere It was realized long ... 2001) and vacuum polarization, including a conversion of normal radiation modes propagating in the magnetized ...
