If the surface temperature of a young neutron star is hot enough, say, several KeV, its blackbody radiation could be super-Eddington?

Did any paper discuss this scenario before?

    $\begingroup$ Have you done any reading on the subject? Searching some of these keywords brings up a couple recent papers on super-Eddington accretion on neutron stars (e.g. ultraluminous x-ray sources). $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Oct 16 '18 at 14:24
  • $\begingroup$ have you read my question? I mean isolated neutrons stars, not because of accretion, but because of high T $\endgroup$ – questionhang Oct 17 '18 at 3:09

    $\begingroup$ You should specify that, then; the question did not specify that the neutron star must be isolated, nor that the high temperatures don't have to be caused by inflowing matter. In other words, version 1 seems to include ULXs and other accreting systems as possibilities. An edit might make it a bit clearer. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Oct 17 '18 at 3:20

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps some politeness wouldn’t go astray. Saying “have you read my question?” would normally be regarded as rude, especially when you subsequently edit your question to address the very issue being pointed out. $\endgroup$ – Chappo Hasn't Forgotten Monica Oct 19 '18 at 6:40
