Abstract

The frequencies of quasi periodic oscillations in the giant flare phenomena are considered as results from the oscillations in the solid crust region of magnetar. However, using the realistic magnetar models, we show that the crustal oscillations are not enough to explain the observed frequencies. Then, examining the magnetic oscillations inside the star, we can find a valuable correspondence between the observed evidences and theoretical expectations.
