The innermost stable cicular orbit (ISCO) of an accretion disc orbiting a neutron star (NS) is often assumed a unique prediction of general relativity. However, it has been argued that ISCO also appears around highly elliptic bodies described by Newtonian theory. In this sense, the behaviour of an ISCO around a rotating oblate neutron star is formed by the interplay between relativis tic and Newtonian effects. Here we briefly explore the consequences of this interp lay using a straightforward… Expand

Universal Relations for Innermost Stable Circular Orbits around Rapidly Rotating Neutron Stars
We study the innermost stable circular orbit (ISCO) of a test particle around rapidly rotating neutron stars. Based on 12 different nuclear-matter equations of state (EOS), we find numerically twoExpand

Rotating stars in relativity
TLDR
The latest theoretical understanding of rotating stars in relativity is reviewed and several new sections have been added on equilibria in modified theories of gravity, approximate universal relationships, the one-arm spiral instability, and on analytic solutions for the exterior spacetime. Expand
Constraining models of twin peak quasi-periodic oscillations with realistic neutron star equations of state
Twin-peak quasi-periodic oscillations (QPOs) are observed in the X-ray power-density spectra of several accreting low-mass neutron star (NS) binaries. In our previous work we have considered severalExpand
