X-ray counterpart of gravitational waves due to binary neutron star mergers: light curves, luminosity functions, and event rate densities

12 May 2017 Sun Hui Zhang Bing Gao He

Zhang (2013) proposed a type of GRB-less X-ray transient associated with double neutron star (NS-NS) mergers under the conjecture of a rapidly-spinning magnetar merger product with the line of sight off the short GRB jet. We investigate possible light curves of these transients by considering different observer's viewing angles... (read more)
