Abstract: The Galactic population of rotation-powered (aka radio) millisecond pulsars (MSPs) exhibits diverse X-ray properties. Energetic MSPs show pulsed non-thermal radiation from their magnetospheres. Eclipsing binary MSPs predominantly have X-ray emission from a pulsar wind driven intra-binary shock. Typical radio MSPs emit X-rays from their heated magnetic polar caps. These thermally emitting MSPs offer the opportunity to place interesting constraints on the long sought after dense matter equation of state, making … Show more
