The Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) has demonstrated tha t e dynamical variation of the X-ray emission from accreting neutron stars and stellar mass black holes is a powerful probe of their strong gravitational fields. At the same time, the X-ray burst oscillations at the neutron star spin f requency have been used to set important constraints on the m ass and radius of neutron stars, hence on the equation of state of the ir high density cores.
