Fig. 2


Evolution of the mass transfer rate (solid curve) and the neutron star mass (dashed curve) with the evolutive timescale for the same LMXB of Fig. 1. The dotted curve represents the critical mass transfer rate, under which the disk accretion is unstable. The mass transfer rate has been slightly smoothed for clarity.
