AbstractWe examine the spin-up of low;luminosity, low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) to millisecond pulsars (MSPs). In the conventional spin-up model of the Ghosh & Lamb type, where the stellar magnetic field interacts with the Keplerian accretion disk, MSPs could be produced from LMXBs if the magnetic field B* less than or similar to 10(8)((M) over dot/10(16) g s(-1)) G, where (M) over dot is the mass accretion rate. However, for (M) over dot < (M) over dot
