Effects of Time-Dependent Heat Sources On Neutron Star Crust Cooling
Neutron star crust cooling can give insights to the interior composition of the stars. Using dStar and the neutron star cooling simulation code NSCool, a variable mass is accreted onto different neutron star models. Previous accretion simulations have commonly assumed a constant mass accretion over a long epoch; this research investigates the effects of different accreting mass accretion rate distributions and focuses on a periodic Gaussian distribution, with a ner time epoch.
