Pulsar spin-down by a fallback disk and the P-P diagram

Alpar, MA

Neutron stars may be surrounded by fallback disks formed from supernova core collapse. If the disk circumscribes the light cylinder, the neutron star will be an active radio pulsar spinning down under the propeller spin-down torque applied by the disk as well as the usual magnetic dipole radiation torque. Evolution across the P-P diagram is very rapid when pulsar spin-down is dominated by the propeller torque. This explains the distribution of pulsars in the P-P diagram.


Very high energy gamma rays from the composite SNR G0.9+0.1
Aharonian, F; et. al. (EDP Sciences, 2005-03-01)
Very high energy (> 100 GeV) gamma-ray emission has been detected for the first time from the composite supernova remnant G0.9+ 0.1 using the HESS instrument. The source is detected with a significance of approximate to 13sigma, and a photon flux above 200 GeV of ( 5.7 +/- 0.7(stat) +/- 1.2(sys)) x 10(-12) cm(-2) s(-1), making it one of the weakest sources ever detected at TeV energies. The photon spectrum is compatible with a power law ( dN/dE proportional to E-Gamma) with photon index Gamma = 2.40 +/- 0.1...
Frequency-resolved spectroscopy of XB1323-619 using XMM-Newton data: detection of a reflection region in the disc
Balman, Şölen (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010-09-21)
We present the frequency-resolved energy spectra (FRS) of the low-mass X-ray binary dipper XB1323-619 during persistent emission in four different frequency bands using an archival XMM-Newton observation. FRS method helps to probe the inner zones of an accretion disc. XB1323-619 is an Atoll source and a type-I burster. We find that the FRS is well described by a single blackbody component with kT in a range 1.0-1.4 keV responsible for the source variability in the frequency ranges of 0.002-0.04 and 0.07-0.3...
Age determination of the open cluster NGC 2287 (M41)
Küçük, İbrahim; Eryurtezer, Dilan (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1988)
We have estimated the age of the open cluster NGC 2287 (M41) by taking into account the rotation of the member stars. TheUBV photoelectric measurement values were taken from Eggen (1974). Besides the Main-Sequence stars this cluster has seven red giants, all of them above the turn-off point. Having obtained the theoretical Hertzsprung-Russell diagram from observed colour-magnitude diagram, we have discussed two methods, given in the literature, to estimate the age of the cluster under consideration. The f...
Optical imaging and spectroscopic observation of the galactic supernova remnant G85.9-0.6
GÖK, FATMA; Sezer, A.; Aktekin, E.; Guever, T.; Ercan, N. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2009-11-01)
Optical CCD imaging with H alpha and [SII] filters and spectroscopic observations of the galactic supernova remnant G85.9-0.6 have been performed for the first time. The CCD image data are taken with the 1.5 m Russian-Turkish Telescope (RTT150) at TBA degrees TAK National Observatory (TUG) and spectral data are taken with the Bok 2.3 m telescope on Kitt Peak, AZ.
Radial vibrations in a 5 M⊙ double-shell burning hydrogen-helium star
Kırbıyık, Hayrettin (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1990-6)
A model of 5M ⊙ hydrogen-helium star with no metals has been considered. The properties of the adiabatic oscillations were obtained, and the vibrational instability of the model has been investigated. The model is a double-shell burning star. Calculations were done for the fundamental mode as well as the first and the second harmonics. The model has been found vibrationally unstable against radial adiabatic pulsations.
