Neutron Star Radii: At the Crossroads

Robert E Rutledge



Transient Low Mass X-ray Binaries in quiesence have offered a primary means to measure neutron star radii. In this talk, I will review the theory which motivated the investigation of these sources for neutron star radius measurements, the observational status of this direction, what we have learned so far in the era of high throughput X-ray spectroscopy, and where we can expect these observations to take us.
