  • Merging binary neutron stars are thought to be formed predominantly via isolated binary evolution. In this standard formation scenario, the first-born neutron star goes through a recycling process and might be rapidly spinning during the final inspiral, whereas the second-born star is expected to have effectively zero spin at merger. Based on this feature, we propose a new framework for the astrophysical characterization of binary neutron stars observed from their gravitational wave emission… CONTINUE READING
