Abstract: Neutron stars are well studied Galactic objects, observed in the form of the `Pulsars? (), and of the Binary X-ray Sources (). They are probably all born in supernova explosions, and most of them are short-lived compared with the age of the Galaxy. Problematic are (i) the formation of their relativistic winds, (ii) the formation of their broadband pulses (from radio to hard gamma-rays), (iii) their beaming patterns, (iv) the irregularities of their pulses, (v) the two-humpedness of their (birth) period distribution, (vi) their occasional formation of jets, and (vii) their overabundance in the globular clusters.
