  • Discovery of pulsating ultra-luminous X-ray sources (PULX) suggests that neutron stars are presumably common within the ultra-luminous X-ray source (ULX) population though the majority of the population members are currently lacking pulsations. These systems are likely to host neutron stars accreting mass at super-Eddington (super-critical) rates from their massive companion in high-mass X-ray binaries. Taking into account the spherization of the accretion flow in the super-critical regime, the… CONTINUE READING
