Evolution of the BH spin parameter, given by Eq. (9), for a set of BH initial masses Mi as a function of accreted mass M0 Eq. (10). The gray areas mark the 1σ and 2σ errors centered on the observed spin parameter for LMC X-3 (see Table 1). The vertical dashed black lines indicate the maximum allowed accreted mass M0, at 2σ limit for an initial non-spinning BH mass of 5 M (left) and 8 M (right), respectively.
