MIRAX workshop proceedings

Here's the paper "Accretion-powered Millisecond Pulsar Outbursts" I submitted to the proceedings of the MIRAX workshop last December. The paper describes the properties and inferred long-term accretion rates for the seven accretion-powered millisecond pulsars (AMSPs) discovered to date. Unusually, the most recently-discovered source HETE J1900.1-2455, has been active for more than 8 months; the long-term averaged accretion rate may thus be the largest of all the AMSPs. We also estimated an upper limit of 6 kpc to the distance of IGR J00291+5934 based on the non-detection of bursts from this source.
