    Numerical simulations have been conducted at the University of Strathclyde to study the spatial growth rate and emission topology of the cyclotron maser instability responsible for auroral magnetospheric radio emission from stars and planets and intense non-thermal radio emission in other astrophysical contexts. The results have significant bearing on the radiation propagation characteristics and highly debated question of escape from the source region.
