Abstract: The effect of strong magnetic fields, of the order of 10ˆ{16}-10ˆ{17}G, on the extension of the crust of magnetized neutron stars is discussed. The dynamical instability region of neutron-proton-electron matter at subsaturation densities and the mode with the largest growth rate are determined within a relativistic mean field model. It is shown that a strong magnetic field has a large effect on the instability region, defining the crust-core transition as a wide density range.
