Abstract

The coupled evolution of the spin frequency, core temperature, and r-mode amplitude of an accreting neutron star is calculated. We focus on those conditions that can produce persistent gravitational radiation from the r-mode. During X-ray quiescent phases of transient LMXBs, one may be able to identify the constant contribution of the gravitational wave emission to the spindown rate. Another signature is the r-mode contribution to the heating.
