Mass of accreted matter as a function of the time needed to spin-up the progenitor NS to the observed properties of PSR J16142230 (i.e., M, B, and f) for the five models indicated in Table 3. The dot corresponds to a spin-up track proceeding at a rate equal to the Eddington accretion rate Edd ~ 3 × 10-8M/ yr; the accretion timescale is then ~2 Myr. For tracks with τacc ≲ 2 Myr, is greater than Edd.
