Model Description

This theory posits that an FRB could be formed when a supernova shock interacts with the magnetosphere of a NS in a binary system. When the shock encounters the NS magnetosphere, it sweeps out a magnetospheric tail, which triggers reconnection and hence emission. A GRB is expected in such an event, but with a low flux that may be di�fficult to detect.


Observational Constraints

A core-collapse supernova is expected to be coincident with the FRB.
