Propagation of Electromagnetic Waves in Pulsar Magnetospheres

We have developed a numerical code for the propagation of different electromagneticmodes in a pulsar magnetosphere filled by a relativistic, streaming electron-positron plasma in astrong, curved magnetic field. We determine the trajectories, limiting polarization and damping ofthe waves leaving the magnetosphere.
