Origin of pulsars with 0.1 s < P < 0.3 s and 5 × 105 years < < 107 years after the second supernova explosion in high-mass X-ray binaries
Abstract:The origin of same of the single pulsars with relatively low magnetic fields B < 1012 G and with characteristic times < 107 years is established. Such pulsars occur as a result of the disruption of high-mass X-ray binary systems after a second supernova explosion. In these binaries, mass accretion on to the surface of X-ray pulsars leads to the decrease in the magnetic field from its initial value B ≈ 1012-1013 G down to B < 1012 G similar to the processes in low mass X-ray binaries.
