This paper surveys our current knowledge of the hard X-ray emission properties of old ac-creting neutron stars in low mass X-ray binaries. Hard X-ray components extending up to energies of a few hundred keV have been clearly detected in sources of both the Atoll and Z classes. The presence and characteristics of these hard components are discussed in relation to source properties and state. An overall anticorrelation between the fraction luminosity in hard X-rays and mass accretion rate is… CONTINUE READING
