Abstract

We explore the instabilities of neutron star with toroidal magnetic fields. General relativistic magnetohydrodynamical simulations are performed in the framework of Numerical Relativity. The magnetized neutron stars are potentially unstable against the Taylor and/or Parker instability. We confirm this linear analysis prediction and explore the non-linear phase of these instabilities.
