Model Description

A broader description, observational effects and detailed information. This is an FRB model where the merger of two neutron stars would lead to the generation of an isotropic radio pulse.

Observational Constraints

In general this model would predict that FRBs arise from old stellar populations where NS-NS binary systems have had time to form and evolve into compact orbits.
