The group of rapidly rotating neutron stars that accrete matter from its neighbouring low-mass stellar body, which shows variations in coherent X-ray intensity during outbursts, are called accreting millisecond (ms) X-ray pulsars (AMXPs). And, a neutron star is collapsed core state of a supergiant massive star having total mass of 10 to 25 solar masses. To study dense matter and strong gravity physics, AMXPs can be considered as an ideal candidate as they show large number of X-ray timing and spectral features. We would like to analyze and interpret X-ray data of accretion powered ms pulsars observed with AstroSat satellite.
