Accreting millisecond X-ray pulsars are known to provide a wealth of physical information during their successive states of outburst and quiescence. Based on the observed spin-up and spin-down rates of these objects, it is possible, among other things, to infer the stellar magnetic field strength and test models of accretion disc flow. In this paper, we consider the three accreting X-ray pulsars (XTE J1751–305, IGR J00291+5934 and SAX J1808.4–3658) with the best available timing data, and… Expand

The accreting millisecond X-ray pulsar IGR J00291+5934: evidence for a long timescale spin evolution
Accreting millisecond X-ray pulsars like IGR J00291+5934 are important because they can be used to test theories of pulsar formation and evolution. They give also the possibility of constrainingExpand
Physics of accretion in the millisecond pulsar XTE J1751 – 305
We have undertaken an extensive study of X-ray data from the accreting millisecond pulsar XTE J 1751 - 305 observed by RXTE and XMM-Newton during its 2002 outburst. In all aspects this source isExpand
Measuring the spin up of the accreting millisecond pulsar XTE J1751–305
ABSTRACT We perform a timing analysis on RXTE data of the accreting millisecond pulsarXTE J1751–305 observed during the April 2002 outburst. After having correctedfor Doppler effects on the pulseExpand
Modelling the spin equilibrium of neutron stars in low‐mass X‐ray binaries without gravitational radiation
In this paper we discuss the spin equilibrium of accreting neutron stars in low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs). We demonstrate that, when combined with a naive spin-up torque, the observed data lead toExpand
Spin down during quiescence of the fastest known accretion-powered pulsar
We present a timing solution for the 598.89 Hz accreting millisecond pulsar, IGR J00291+5934, using Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer data taken during the two outbursts exhibited by the source on 2008Expand
ACCRETION ONTO FAST X-RAY PULSARS
The recent emergence of a new class of accretion-powered, transient, millisecond X-ray pulsars presents some difficulties for the conventional picture of accretion onto rapidly rotating magnetizedExpand
Swings between rotation and accretion power in a binary millisecond pulsar
TLDR
Observations of accretion-powered, millisecond X-ray pulsations from a neutron star previously seen as a rotation- powered radio pulsar show the evolutionary link between accretion and rotation-powered millisecond pulsars, but also that some systems can swing between the two states on very short timescales.

The Disk-Magnetosphere Interaction in the Accretion-powered Millisecond Pulsar SAX J1808.4–3658
The recent discovery of the first known accretion-powered millisecond pulsar with the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer provides the first direct probe of the interaction of an accretion disk with theExpand
THE EFFECT OF TRANSIENT ACCRETION ON THE SPIN-UP OF MILLISECOND PULSARS
A millisecond pulsar is a neutron star that has been substantially spun up by accretion from a binary companion. A previously unrecognized factor governing the spin evolution of such pulsars is theExpand
