Observational signatures of neutron stars in low-mass X-ray binaries climbing a stability peak.


Abstract (from CDS):

In the recent papers by Gusakov et al., a new scenario describing evolution of rapidly rotating neutron stars (NSs) in low-mass X-ray binaries was proposed. The scenario accounts for a resonant interaction of normal r-modes with superfluid inertial modes at some specific internal stellar temperatures (`resonance temperatures'). This interaction results in an enhanced damping of r-mode and appearance of the `stability peaks' in the temperature - spin frequency plane, which split the r-mode instability window in the vicinity of the resonance temperatures. The scenario suggests that the hot and rapidly rotating NSs spend most of their life climbing up these peaks and, in particular, are observed there at the moment. We analyse in detail possible observational signatures of this suggestion. In particular, we show that these objects may exhibit `anti-glitches' - sudden frequency jumps on a time-scale of hours-months.
