Sergei B. Popov (ICTP, Trieste, Italy):
Evolution of magnetic field of neutron stars

In the talk, I briefly discuss the present-day view on the magnetic field evolution of neutron stars and their main observational appearance. Then, I focus on the possibility of finding magnetars in binary systems of different kinds. Possible candidates include accreting neutron stars (in particular, ultra-luminous X-ray sources), gamma-ray sources, and fast radio bursts. I present a scenario in which the existence of a highly magnetized neutron star in a high-mass X-ray binary is possible at the age of a few million years.
