- The primary concern of this contribution is that accreting millisecond pulsars (AMXPs) show a much larger amount of information
than is commonly believed. The three questions to be addressed are:
1. Is the apparent spin torque observed in AMXPs real ?
2. Why do we see correlations and anti-correlations between fractional amplitudes and timing residuals in some AMXPs ?
3. Why the timing residuals, the lightcurve and the 1Hz QPO in SAX J1808.4-3658 are related ?
