Aims. Neutron stars (NSs) produced in the Milky Way are supposedly ten to the eighth – ten to the ninth – of which only ∼2 × 10 3 are observed. Constraining the phase space distribution of NSs may help to characterize the yet undetected population of stellar remnants. Methods. We performed Monte Carlo simulations of NS orbits, under different assumptions concerning the Galactic potential and the distribution of progenitors and birth velocities. We study the resulting phase space distributions… CONTINUE READING
