Statistical theory of thermal evolution of neutron stars - II. Limitations on direct Urca threshold.


Abstract (from CDS):

We apply our recently suggested statistical approach to thermal evolution of isolated neutron stars and accreting quasi-stationary neutron stars in X-ray transients for constraining the position and relative broadening α of the direct Urca threshold of powerful neutrino emission in neutron star cores. We show that most likely explanation of observations corresponds to α ~ 0.08-0.10 and to the neutron star mass, at which the direct Urca process is open, MD ~ 1.6-1.8M.
