Measuring Neutron Star Mass and Radius with Three Mass-Radius Relations


We propose to determine the mass and the radius of a neutron star (NS) using three measurable mass-radius relationships, namely the “apparent” radius inferred from neutron star thermal emission, the gravitational redshift inferred from the absorption lines, as well as the averaged stellar mass density inferred from the orbital Keplerian frequency derived… (More)
