Nuetron Star Binary

  1. May 14, 2012 #1
    The acretion process between a white dwar binary and blakc hole binary is significantly different as the black hole has no solid surface. So am I right to presume that a neutron star binary should be the same process but with higher energies than than white dwarf case?

    I'm no expert but I would say yes. In neutron stars usually the matter accumulates until a gargantuan thermonuclear explosion occurs.
