Long term Magneto-thermal evolution of neutron stars: the roles of the Hall drift amb ambipolar diffusion

José A. Pons

It is generally accepted that the nonlinear, dynamical evolution of magnetic fields in the interior of neutron stars plays a key role in the explanation of the observed phenomenology (temperatures, luminosities, spin period and derivative). Understanding the transfer of energy between toroidal and poloidal components, or between different scales, is of particular relevance. In this talk I discuss the general aspects of the long term magnetic and thermal evolution, with particular emphasis in the role of the Hall drift and ambipolar diffusion for typical magnetar conditions
