In science:

In this model (e.g., Campana et al. 1998a; Brown et al. 1998) the radiation emitted below a few keV is thermal emission originating from the neutron star surface.
Crust cooling curves of accretion-heated neutron stars
If the quiescent emission is dominated by the thermal emission of the cooling neutron star, then the quiescent luminosity should depend on the time averaged (over 104−5 years) accretion luminosity of the system (Campana et al. 1998a; Brown et al. 1998).
Crust cooling curves of accretion-heated neutron stars
We now know that Cen X-4 is not the only system which is colder than expected on the basis of its time-averaged accretion history and the standard cooling model (e.g., Campana et al. 2002; Nowak et al. 2002).
Crust cooling curves of accretion-heated neutron stars
This variability cannot easily be explained by a cooling neutron star and extra ingredients need to be added to the cooling model (e.g., Ushomirsky & Rutledge 2001; Brown et al. 2002) or alternative models must be used to explain the quiescent properties (e.g., Campana & Stella 2003; Campana et al. 2004).
Crust cooling curves of accretion-heated neutron stars
Alternative models (e.g., residual accretion or the onset of the radio pulsar mechanism; Campana et al. 1998a, Campana & Stella 2000) for the quiescent emission of KS 1731–260 have been proposed (e.g., Burderi et al. 2002).
