The double pulsar: evolutionary constraints from the system geometry

Abstract

The double pulsar system PSR J0737−3039A/B is a highly relativistic double neutron star (DNS) binary, with a 2.4-hour orbital period. The low mass of the second-formed NS, as well the low system eccentricity and proper motion, point to a different evolutionary scenario compared to other known DNS systems. We describe analysis of the pulse profile shape over… (More)
