The X-ray light curves of the recurring outbursts observed in low-mass X-ray binaries provide strong test beds for constraining (still) poorly understood disc-accretion processes. These light curves act as a powerful diagnostic to probe the physics behind the mechanisms driving mass inflow and...
Constraining the Physics of the X-ray Irradiated Accretion Discs in Low-mass X-ray Binaries with ObservationsDownload
Recurring outbursts associated with matter flowing onto compact stellar remnants (black holes and neutron stars) in low-mass X-ray binary systems provide constraints on the poorly understood accretion process. Multi-wavelength light-curves and spectra of these bright outbursts provide powerful...
