N ov 2 00 7 Formation of Millisecond Pulsars in Globular Clusters

In this contribution we discuss how neutron stars are produc e and retained in globular clusters, outlining the most important dynamical channels and evolutionary events that affect the population of mass-transferring binaries w ith neutron stars and result in the formation of recycled pulsar s. We confirm the importance of electron-capture supernovae in… CONTINUE READING
