There is a general consensus that the frequencies of the kilohertz quasi-periodic oscillations (kHz QPOs) in neutron-star low-mass X-ray binaries are directly linked to the spin of the neutron star. The root of this idea is the apparent clustering of the ratio of the frequency difference of the kHz QPOs, and the neutron-star spin frequency, Deltanu/nus, at around 0.5 and 1 in 10 systems for which these two quantities have been measured. Here, we re-examine all available data of sources for… CONTINUE READING
