In this Communication, we consider a simple model of magnetosphere around a fast rotating Jupiter–like object possessing a spin–aligned dipolar moment μ. In this model, low–energy plasma released by inner sources located beyond the corotation radius diffuses outward through closed lines, forming a thin equatorial disk in which there is a quasistatic balance between the centrifugal force and the magnetic tension. At some critical radius r0, however, the magnetic field is no longer strong enoughdoi:10.1017/s0074180900075641 fatcat:aokk35vbdbc2nhnaxnd6asp23y
