Multi-periodic variability in low mass x-ray binaries

Abstract:

An introduction is given to the fields of low mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs), soft X-ray transients (SXTs) and related classes of objects. Aspects such as evolution, variability and populations are reviewed.

The methods of time series analysis are listed and the new method of Bayesian spectrum analysis and parameter estimation is outlined. In particular the methods required to analyze multi-periodic variability in LMXB light curves are described, as used in subsequent chapters. Artifici...
