Astrophysics of Double Neutron Star Binaries
- Conference date: 19-23 June 2006
- Location: Greenbelt, Maryland (USA)
I present a study of galactic population of double neutron star binaries to investigate if any of these systems can potentially be detected with LISA at low gravitational‐wave frequencies. The number and physical properties of double neutron star systems in the Galaxy are calculated using population synthesis method. It is found that, although formation efficiency is very small, ten to hundred of such systems should be detectable with LISA depending on the instrument low‐frequency sensitivity.
