The Effects of High-Velocity Supernova Kicks on the Orbital Properties and Sky Distributions of Neutron Star Binaries

Abstract:

We systematically investigate the effects of high supernova kick velocities on the orbital parameters of post-supernova neutron-star binaries. Using Monte- Carlo simulations, we determine the post-supernova distributions of orbital parameters for progeneitors of HMXBs and LMXBs. With the recent distribution of pulsar birth velocities by Lyne and Lorimer (1994), only about 27% of massive systems remain bound after the supernova, of which about 26% immediately experience dynamical mass transfer...
