Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are one of the most enigmatic astronomical phenomena and their origins remain shrouded in a deep fog of mystery. This talk will focus on the possible connection between FRBs and binary neutron star mergers based on our recent work.
As another intriguing topic, the suppression of radio pulsations seen in bursting neutron stars will be highlighted. I will briefly review the recent observation and explain how our newly proposed model can explain this.
