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 M☉ and the initial orbital period from ~4 hr to ~100 days. This range samples the entire range of… Expand
The Galactic Population of Low- and Intermediate-Mass X-Ray Binaries
We present the first study that combines binary population synthesis in the Galactic disk and detailed evolutionary calculations of low- and intermediate-mass X-ray binaries (L/IMXBs). Our approachExpand
Evolution of low-mass X-ray binaries: dependence on the mass of the compact object
We perform numerical calculations to simulate the evolution of low-mass X-ray binary systems. For the accreting compact object we consider the initial mass of 1.4, 10, 20, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 M ⊙Expand
Formation and Evolution of Galactic Intermediate/Low-Mass X-ray Binaries
We investigate the formation and evolutionary sequences of Galactic intermediate- and low-mass X-ray binaries (I/LMXBs) by combining binary population synthesis (BPS) and detailed stellarExpand
The evolution of ultracompact x-ray binaries
Context. Ultracompact X-ray binaries (UCXBs) typically consist of a white dwarf donor and a neutron star or black hole accretor. The evolution of UCXBs and very low mass ratio binaries in general isExpand
FORMATION OF MILLISECOND PULSARS FROM INTERMEDIATE- AND LOW-MASS X-RAY BINARIES
We present a systematic study of the evolution of intermediate- and low-mass X-ray binaries consisting of an accreting neutron star of mass 1.0-1.8 M{sub Sun} and a donor star of mass 1.0-6.0 M{subExpand
Novel modelling of ultracompact X-ray binary evolution - stable mass transfer from white dwarfs to neutron stars
Tight binaries of helium white dwarfs (He WDs) orbiting millisecond pulsars (MSPs) will eventually "merge" due to gravitational damping of the orbit. The outcome has been predicted to be theExpand
The timescale of low-mass proto-helium white dwarf evolution
Context. A large number of low-mass (<∼0.20 M ) helium white dwarfs (He WDs) have recently been discovered. The majority of these are orbiting another WD or a millisecond pulsar (MSP) in a closeExpand
Evolutionary Properties of Helium-rich, Degenerate Dwarfs in Binaries Containing Compact Companions
The evolution of binaries containing low-mass donors (� 2 M� ) and degenerate accretors (i.e., white dwarfs [0.7 M� ]o r neutron stars [1.4M� ]) is systematically investigated over a wide expanse ofExpand
The nature of the X-ray pulsar in M 31: An intermediate-mass X-ray binary?
Recently the first finding of a spin period of an accreting neutron star in M31 is reported. The observed spin period is 1.2 s and it shows 1.27 d modulations due to orbital motion. From the orbitalExpand
LMXB AND IMXB EVOLUTION: I. THE BINARY RADIO PULSAR PSR J1614–2230
We have computed an extensive grid of binary evolution tracks to represent low- and intermediate-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs and IMXBs). The grid includes 42,000 models which cover 60 initial donorExpand

Formation of Millisecond Pulsars with Heavy White Dwarf Companions: Extreme Mass Transfer on Subthermal Timescales.
TLDR
These systems provide a new formation channel for binary millisecond pulsars with heavy CO white dwarfs and relatively short orbital periods and are concluded that to produce a binary pulsar with a O-Ne-Mg white dwarf or Porb approximately 1 day the above scenario does not work, and a spiral-in phase is still considered the most plausible scenario for the formation of such a system.
