MESA files associated with Evolving LMXBs: CARB Magnetic Braking Abstract:
The formation of low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) is an ongoing challenge in stellar evolution. The important subset of LMXBs are the binary systems with a neutron star (NS) accretor. In NS LMXBs with non-degenerate donors, the mass transfer is mainly driven by magnetic braking. The discrepancies between the observed mass transfer (MT) rates and the theoretical models were known for a while. Theory predictions of...
