X-ray Timing of the Enigmatic Neutron Star Rx J0720.4−3125

Abstract

RX J0720.4−3125 is the third brightest neutron star in the soft X-ray sky and has been a source of mystery since its discovery, as its long 8-s period separates it from the population of typical radio pulsars. Three models were proposed for this source: a neutron star accreting from the interstellar medium, an off-beam radio pulsar, or an old, cooling… (More)
