Space position

Following Paczynsky (1990), we assume initial space distribution of young neutron stars to be varying exponentially with distance from the Galactic center and from the Galactic plane, that is probability distribution for young neutron star positions can be written in the form


with tex2html_wrap_inline279 kpc, and tex2html_wrap_inline281 pc.
