P4: Isolated Neutron Stars


Since the discovery of the first radio pulsar fifty years ago, the population of isolated neutron stars (INSs) in our Galaxy has grown to 2800, out of which a few percent are exclusively seen in X-rays. Despite their scarcity, the X-ray emitting INSs are the key to understanding aspects of neutron star phenomenology and evolution not observed in normal pulsars. eRASS will unveil the X-ray faint end of the population; therefore, it has the unique potential to constrain evolutionary models and advance the understanding of the NS population as a whole.
