    Abstract

    We study the recoil of so-called "magnetars", highly magnetized slowly rotating neutron stars, doing series of numerical simulations on the core-collapse of massive stars in strong magnetic field and rapid rotation regime. We assume that the initial magnetic fields have a dipole-like configurations somewhat offset from the center of the cores. As a result, recoil velocities of ∼ 500 - 1000 km s-1 are obtained which suggest that magnetars could have substantial recoil velocities as ordinary pulsars.
