tex2html_wrap_inline3922   X-rays result from accretion phenomena in general
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Many black hole candidates in contrast to radio pulsars
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Again classified on the basis on companion mass
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Most high mass systems are X-rays pulsars
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Only 3 low mass systems are X-ray pulsars!
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Generally shorter life times than MSPs
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Easier to detect
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Virtually all lmxbs and hmxbs have been found
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Many evolutionary links to radio pulsars
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   few seconds < P < few hundred seconds
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Phases of spin-up and spin-down
