Theory and observations favor stable helium burning as the m ost i portant means to produce fuel for superbursts on neutron star surfaces. However, all known superbursters ex hibit unstable burning as well. This ambiguity prompted us t o earch for superbursts in data from the BeppoSAX Wide Field Cameras of ten luminous LMXBs, most of which do not exhibit… CONTINUE READING
