Evolutionary Binary Sequences for Low- and Intermediate-Mass X-ray Binaries

Abstract:

We present the results of a systematic study of the evolution of low- and intermediate-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs and IMXBs). Using a standard Henyey-type stellar-evolution code and a standard model for binary interactions, we have calculated 100 binary evolution sequences containing a neutron star and a normal-type companion star, where the initial mass of the secondary ranges from 0.6 to 7\Ms and the initial orbital period from $\sim 4 $hr to $\sim 100 $d. This grid of models samples the en...
