Samples of binary millisecond pulsars.

Class N ν (Hz) (Hz) σν (Hz) Description

RMSPs 199 268 274 139 Rotation-powered (radio) pulsars in a binary system
Galactic RMSPs 128 262 267 141 RMSPs in the Galactic field
cluster RMSPs 71 277 276 138 RMSPs of globular clusters
eclipsing RMSPs 42 367 377 154 RMSPs whose radio-pulsed emission is irregularly eclipsed
non-eclipsing RMSPs 157 242 252 122 RMSPs whose radio-pulsed emission is not eclipsed
LMXBs 25 413 401 150 All accretion-powered pulsars (accreting MSPs + nuclear MSPs)
accreting MSPs 15 353 377 140 Accreting millisecond pulsars (X-ray coherent oscillations)
nuclear MSPs 10 502 552 123 Nuclear-powered millisecond pulsars (only X-ray burst oscillations)
transitional MSPs 56 365 377 150 Transitional pulsars (accreting MSPs + eclipsing RMSPs)

Notes. Number of objects, mean, median and standard deviation, of the spin frequency distributions of the considered classes of rotation and accretion-powered millisecond pulsars (P< 30 ms) in binary systems. IGR J182452452 is counted as both an eclipsing- and an accreting MSP.
