Jay Strader, Michigan State University, "Compact Binaries and the Origin of Millisecond Pulsars"
Astronomy colloquium: Oct 17 @ 3:30 PM, ERC 161
It is well-established that fast-spinning millisecond pulsars are neutron stars recycled through accretion from binary companions. For most millisecond pulsars the accretion process has permanently ceased, and they are in binary systems with low-mass white dwarf companions.
