Soft X-ray Emission and Lithium Production in Cen X-4 during Shin-ichiro Fujimoto,1 Ryuichi Matsuba,2 and Kenzo Arai,3 1 Department of Electronic Control, Kumamoto National College of Technology, 2659-2 Suya, Koshi, Kumamoto 861-1102, Japan 2 Institute for e-Learning Development, Kumamoto University, Kumamoto 860-8555, Japan 3 Department of Physics, Kumamoto University, Kumamoto 860-8555, Japan E-mail(SF): We investigate emission mechanism of soft X-ray radiation from a neutron star soft X-ray transient (NSSXT), Cen X-4 and unusually high abundances of Li on a low-mass secondary in Cen X-4 during aquiescent state. An accretion flow in NSSXTs in quiescence is though to be an advection-dominated oneand truncated by magneto-centrifugal forces due to the magnetic field of a neutron star. The advectiondominated accretion flow (ADAF) is very hot (> 1 MeV) enough to synthesize abundant neutrons throughthe spallation of 4He via protons in the flow. Although almost all charged nuclei in the ADAF are outflowedby the magneto-centrifugal forces, the neutrons accrete onto the neutron star because of no influence ofthe magnetic field on the neutrons. Consequently, the accretion flow is composed of neutrons near theneutron star. The accretion energy of the neutrons liberated on the surface of the star is a possible energybudget for soft X-ray radiation in a NSSXT in quiescence. Moreover, Li is abundantly synthesized in theADAF through α−α reactions and is transfered to the surface of the secondary by the magneto-centrifugalforces. We find that for reasonable values of the mass accretion rate and the magnetic field of the neutronstar, the estimated soft X-ray luminosity and abundance of Li on the secondary are comparable to thoseobserved in Cen X-4.
