I Binary system of a neutron star with a black hole

  1. Mar 18, 2016 #1
    I am reading about mergers of a neutron star with a black hole and the association with GRB. While talking about the accretion disk, the paper I am reading says about the last stable circular orbit.
    Firstly I thought it was where the Roche limit lies, where mass transfer or matter ejection from the neutron star begins, but I think it must be something else.
    I would appreciate some enlightenment :)
