Long-term evolution of anomalous X-ray pulsars and soft gamma repeaters

We have investigated the long-term evolution of individual anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) and soft gamma repeaters (SGRs) with relatively well constrained X-ray luminosity and rotational properties.

On the evolution of high-B radio pulsars with measured braking indices

We have investigated the long-term evolutions of the high-magnetic field radio pulsars (HBRPs) with measured braking indices in the same model that was applied earlier to individual anomalous X-ray

Long-term evolution of RRAT J1819–1458

At present, J1819-1458 is the only rotating radio transient (RRAT) detected in X-rays. We have studied the long-term evolution of this source in the fallback disc model. The model can reproduce the

Is PSR J0726–2612 a dim isolated neutron star progenitor?

The rotational properties and X-ray luminosity of PSR J0726-2612 are close to those of dim isolated neutron stars (XDINs). It was proposed that the source could be the first XDIN with observable

On the long-term evolution of rotating radio transients

Investigation of the long-term evolution of rotating radio transients (RRATs) is important to understand the evolutionary connections between the isolated neutron star populations in a single

Calvera: A Low-mass Strangeon Star Torqued by Debris Disk?

Calvera is a unique isolated pulsar, because it cannot be detected by radio, optical, and gamma-rays; however, it is detectable through the purely thermal emission in soft X-rays. It is suggested

The Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) experiment detected a hard X-ray emission (10–70 keV) with a period of 8.68917 s and a pulse-phase modulation at 55 ks, or half this value, from

Dependence of pulsar death line on the equation of state

Pulsar death line can be defined in a P-P diagram. Traditionally, radio-loud pulsars are supposed to locate above the death line where there is a radio-loud region. With the development of

Discovery of Extended Infrared Emission around the Neutron Star RXJ0806.4–4123

Following up on a faint detection of a near-infrared (NIR) source at the position of the X-ray thermal isolated neutron star RX J0806.4–4123, we present new Hubble Space Telescope observations in the

X-RAY ENHANCEMENT AND LONG-TERM EVOLUTION OF SWIFT J1822.3−1606

We investigate the X-ray enhancement and the long-term evolution of the recently discovered second “low-B magnetar” Swift J1822.3–1606 in the frame of the fallback disk model. During a soft gamma

On the evolution of the radio pulsar PSR J1734−3333

Recent measurements showed that the period derivative of the ‘hig h-B’ radio pulsar PSR J1734−3333 is increasing with time. For neutron stars evolving with fallback disks, this rotational behavior

ON THE EVOLUTION OF ANOMALOUS X-RAY PULSARS AND SOFT GAMMA-RAY REPEATERS WITH FALL BACK DISKS

We show that the period clustering of anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) and soft gamma-ray repeaters (SGRs), their X-ray luminosities, ages, and statistics can be explained with fall back disks with

AN ACCRETION MODEL FOR THE ANOMALOUS X-RAY PULSAR 4U 0142+61

We propose that the quiescent emission of anomalous X-ray pulsars/soft gamma-ray repeaters (AXPs/SGRs) is powered by accretion from a fallback disk, requiring magnetic dipole fields in the range

An Accretion Model for Anomalous X-Ray Pulsars

We present a model for the anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) in which the emission is powered by accretion from a fossil disk, established from matter falling back onto the neutron star following its

On Young Neutron Stars as Propellers and Accretors with Conventional Magnetic Fields

The similarity of rotation periods of the anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs), the soft gamma-ray repeaters (SGRs), and the dim isolated thermal neutron stars (DTNs) suggests a common mechanism with an

The pulsed X-ray light curves of the isolated neutron star RBS1223

We present a multi-epoch spectral and timing analysis of the isolated neutron star RBS1223. New XMM-Newton data obtained in January 2004 confirm the spin period to be twice as long as previously

Anomalous X-ray pulsars: persistent states with fallback disks

Abstract The anomalous X-ray pulsar 4U 0142+61 was recently detected in the mid infrared bands with the SPITZER Observatory (Wang, Chakrabarty and Kaplan: Nature 440, 772 (2006)). This observation is

The birthplace and age of the isolated neutron star RX J1856.5-3754

X-ray observations unveiled various types of radio-silent isolated neutron stars (INSs), phenomenologically very diverse, e.g. the ~Myr old X-ray-dim INSs (XDINSs) and the ~kyr old magnetars.
