QPOs in CVs: An Executive Summary, in Cool Disks, Hot Flows: The Varying Faces of Accreting Compact Objects, ed.
Astronomers believe the highest QPO frequency for a neutron star reflects the rate of rotation at its disk's inner edge.
Although there's no unified QPO theory, Reis explains that most researchers think that the signal's frequency relates to how long it takes material to whip around the accretion disk's inner edge.
In a model proposed by Miller, Lamb, and Dimitrios Psaltis of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass., the pair of QPOs take on special meaning.
Piro (University of California, Santa Barbara) says that these QPO discoveries are an important first step in the new field of magnetar seismology.
This seems to make GX5-1 the first example of a newly discovered class of celestial objects, which the discoverers of the pulsations call "quasiperiodic objects," or QPOs.
These vibrations are detected as quasi-periodic oscillations (QPOs) in the system's X-ray emission.
