    A Resonance Model of Quasi-Periodic Oscillations of Low-Mass X-Ray Binaries

    We try to understand the quasi-periodic oscillations (QPOs) in low-mass neutron-star and black-hole X-ray binaries by a resonance model in warped disks with precession. Our main concern is high-frequency QPOs, hectohertz QPOs, and horizontal-branch QPOs in the z sources and the atoll sources, and the correponding QPOs in black-hole X-ray binaries. Our resonance model can qualitatively, but systematically, explain these QPOs by regarding hectohertz QPOs as a precession of warp.Comment: 4 pages, to be published in PASJ Vol.57, No.
