The existence and the orbital parameters of low-mass binary x-ray sources suggest that a fraction at least of neutron stars have been produced by the accretion induced collapse (AIC) of a white dwarf (TAAM and VAN DEN HEUVEL [1]). Two types of candidates have been proposed thus far: carbon-oxygen white dwarfs (CANAL and SCHATZMANN [2]; CANAL and ISERN [3]; CANAL, ISERN and LABAY [4]), and oxygen-neon-magnesium white dwarfs (MIYAJI et al [5]; MIYAJI and NOMOTO [6]).
