Do Old Neutron Stars Shiver to Keep Warm?
Jeremy S. Heyl
If the supernova of a star in a binary with a low-mass star does not destroy the binary, an LMXB is formed.
Accretion will spin up the primary to the Kepler frequency of about 1.6 kHz.
Kelvin Wave (Dr=0)
Shear viscosity decreases with T
Bulk viscosity increases with T
force by a factor of one thousand to see what happens.
