ABSTRACT
We report on a semi-analytical model for studying the evolution of the spin period P of a magnetic neutron star as a function of the baryonic mass load M[sub acc]. We have taken into account different equations of state and included rotational deformation effects. The presence of a strong gravitational field has also been considered in the context of general relativity. A comparison with numerical fully relativistic codes shows that our description is accurate within 5%. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Larmor precession has been used in the past in neutron spin-echo and neutron depolarisation.
