Magnetars are strongly magnetised neutron stars, which in turn are one of the end points of stellar evolution: when a massive star, with a mass that exceeds eight times that of the sun (but is less than 15 times the solar mass), exhausts its fuel, it can explode in a supernova. Daniela Huppenkothen explores various methods to try to characterise and understand variability in short magnetar bursts.
