A Neutron Star-White Dwarf Binary Model for Periodically Active Fast Radio Burst Sources

30 Jun 2020 Gu Wei-Min Yi Tuan Liu Tong

We propose a compact binary model with an eccentric orbit to explain periodically active fast radio burst (FRB) sources, where the system consists of a neutron star (NS) with strong dipolar magnetic fields and a magnetic white dwarf (WD). In our model, the WD fills its Roche lobe at periastron, and mass transfer occurs from the WD to the NS around this point... (read more)
