Accreting neutron stars in low-mass X-ray binaries show outflows—and sometimes jets—in the general manner of accreting black holes. However, the quantitative link between the accretion flow (traced by X-rays) and outflows and/or jets (traced by radio emission) is much less well understood for neutron stars than for black holes, other than the general observation that neutron stars are fainter in the radio at a given X-ray luminosity. We use data from the deep MAVERIC radio continuum survey of… 


Disc–jet coupling in low-luminosity accreting neutron stars
In outburst, neutron star X-ray binaries produce less powerful jets thanblack holes at a given X-ray luminosity. This has made them moredifficult to study as they fade towards quiescence. To explore
Low-level accretion in neutron star X-ray binaries
We search the literature for reports on the spectral properties of neutron star low-mass X-ray binaries when they have accretion luminosities between 1034 and 1036 erg s−1, corresponding to roughly
An evolving jet from a strongly magnetized accreting X-ray pulsar
Observations of an evolving jet launched by a strongly magnetized neutron star accreting above the theoretical maximum rate given by the Eddington limit reveal that strong magnetic fields do not prevent jet formation and suggest that stellar properties influence jet power.
Jets in neutron star X-ray binaries: a comparison with black holes
We present a comprehensive study of the relation between radio and X-ray emission in neutron star (NS) X-ray binaries, use this to infer the general properties of the disc‐jet coupling in such
Disc-jet coupling in the Terzan 5 neutron star X-ray binary EXO 1745-248
We present the results of Very Large Array, Australia Telescope Compact Array, and Swift X-ray Telescope observations of the 2015 outburst of the transient neutron star X-ray binary (NSXB), EXO
Black hole-like hysteresis and accretion states in neutron star low-mass X-ray binaries
We have systematically studied a large sample of the neutron star low mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) monitored by the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (50 sources; 10000+ observations). We find that the
The evolving radio jet from the neutron star X-ray binary 4U 1820−30
The persistently bright ultra-compact neutron star low-mass X-ray binary 4U 1820$-$30 displays a $\sim$170 d accretion cycle, evolving between phases of high and low X-ray modes, where the 3 -- 10
The quiescent state of the neutron-star X-ray transient GRS 1747-312 in the globular cluster Terzan 6
We studied the transient neutron-star low-mass X-ray binary GRS 1747−312, located in the globular cluster Terzan 6, in its quiescent state after its outburst in August 2004, using an archival
A new radio census of neutron star X-ray binaries
We report new radio observations of a sample of 36 neutron star (NS) X-ray binaries, more than doubling the sample in the literature observed at current-day sensitivities. These sources include 13
Bursts, eclipses, dips and a refined position for the luminous low-mass X-ray binary in the globular cluster Terzan 6
GRS 1747-312 is a bright transient X-ray source in the globular cluster Terzan 6 with quasi-periodic outbursts approximately every 4.5 months. We carried out 2-60 keV target-of-opportunity
