Abstract :

Every hour sees at least seven thermonuclear explosions from neutron stars

within 10 kiloparsecs of Earth.  And over the same short time period the most

magnetic neutron stars can emit hundreds of explosive magnetic flares.

I will discuss the physics that underpins this antisocial behavior, and explain

how we are using these violent events to learn about the behavior of the strong force

in the ultradense matter in neutron star cores.
