Timing observations imply that this pulsar has not been spun up by accretion from the companion, suggesting that, like the PSR B binary system, the PSR J system is a progenitor of. A pulsar is a type of neutron star which has strong magnetic fields, spins rapidly and emit beams of radio waves along their magnetic axis What is pulsar? the total energy emitted by an astronomical object per unit of time.

C) As gravity overwhelms the neutron degeneracy pressure, it will become a white dwarf. D) It will slow down, the magnetic field will weaken, and it will become invisible. E) The neutron degeneracy pressure will eventually overwhelm gravity and the pulsar will slowly evaporate.

This pulsar is a typical, normal pulsar, rotating with a period of seconds, i.e. close to rotations/sec." s "PSR B, The Vela Pulsar This pulsar lies near the centre of the Vela supernova remnant, which is the debris of the explosion of a massive star ab years ago. Abstract. One of the most important environments in which accretion disks are found occur in interacting binaries. In this chapter I review the main properties of binary systems and the most important types of binary interactions, stable and unstable mass transfer, the role of mass loss, mass accretion, and, in the most dramatic case, the merging of the two binary components.

X-ray pulsars, which form together with a main sequence star or a giant a close binary system, show strong variations in their pulse period.

On the variation of pulsar periods in close binary systems - NASA/ADS X-ray pulsars, which form together with a main sequence star or a giant a close binary system, show strong variations in their pulse period.

Epochs of spin-up and spin-down interchange on timescales of some tens up to some thousand days. X-ray pulsars, which form together with a main sequence star or a giant a close binary system, show strong variations in their pulse period.

Epochs of spin-up and spin-down interchange on timescales of some tens up to some thousand days. We calculate the evolution of close binary systems (CBSs) formed by a neutron star (behaving as a radio pulsar) and a normal donor star, which evolve either to a helium white dwarf (HeWD) or to ultra-short orbital period systems.

We consider X-ray irradiation feedback and evaporation due to radio pulsar irradiation. We show that irradiationCited by: The Binary Pulsar PSR + Inthe Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Russell Hulse and Joseph Taylor of Princeton University for their discovery of a pulsar, designated PSR+16, in a binary system, in orbit with another star around a common center of mass.

Using the Arecibo m antenna, Hulse and Taylor detected pulsed radio emission and thus. fullah et al), orbital period variations are empirically tted using a series of orbital period derivatives. Around the time when PSR B+20 was discov-ered, mechanisms were proposed in order to explain pseudo-periodic variations of orbital periods in various types of close-binary systems such as Algol and cataclysmic vari-Author: Guillaume Voisin, Guillaume Voisin, René P Breton, Charlotte Summers, Charlotte Summers.

Breton, arXivv1 [] 15 Jul We use numerical simulations to investigate the detectability of pulsars in such systems with P_orb ~ 6 hours, using this technique and three widely used pulsar search methods.

pulsar timing provide constraints on binary evolution, characteristics of the binary pulsar population, and the masses of neutron stars with different mass-transfer histories.

These binary systems also test gravitational theories, setting strong limits on deviations from general relativity. Surveys for new pulsars yield new binary systems that Cited by:   A pulsar in a binary orbit has a periodically varying observed spin period as a result of the Doppler shift, meaning that such objects are easily identified.

The companion mass can be estimated from the mass function which is derived from Kepler's 3rd law and combines the observed Keplerian parameters with the pulsar and companion mass.

The study of the PSR B+16 binary pulsar also led to the first accurate determination of neutron star masses, using relativistic timing effects. When the two bodies are in close proximity, the gravitational field is stronger, the passage of time is slowed – and the time between pulses (or ticks) is lengthened.

Finally, the period variations might be explained by assuming the pulsar is in a wide binary system with a long period Porb~ yr and a low-mass. We discuss the high-energy emissions from the shock caused by the pulsar wind and stellar wind interaction and examine the properties of the pulsar wind in this binary system.

We argue that the rate of increase of the X-ray flux observed by Swift indicates (1) a variation of the momentum ratio of the two-wind interaction region along the.The rotation of pulsars USUALLY slows down with time, as their rotational energy is converted to light and radiated away.

However, if a pulsar is in a close binary system with an ordinary star, its rotation can speed up with time. If the ordinary star pours gas onto the pulsar, the force exerted by the falling gas can make the pulsar spin faster.Sometimes, the pulses were received a little sooner than expected; sometimes, later than expected.

These variations changed in a smooth and repetitive manner, with a period of hours. They realized that such behavior is predicted if the pulsar were in a binary orbit with another star, later confirmed to be another neutron llation: Aquila.
