Relativistic scattering of a fast spinning neutron star by a massive black hole
Speaker(s): Kaye Li
Abstract: We consider the motion of a spinning neutron star with astrophysically relevant speed in the gravity field of a massive black hole. The orbital dynamic is described by the MPD equations which include up to quadrupole interaction. We compare the orbits of the neutron star under geodesic motion and under MPD equations and show that the difference in the orbital motion can translate into a variation of pulse-arrival-time. Such a difference is within the observational limit of the radio telescopes like SKA and FAST.
