We construct the quiescent neutron star models in the evolutionary calculations. The X-ray luminosities have been derived in terms of the time-Averaged mass accretion rate for various neutron star masses and surface compositions. We compare the quiescent luminosities observed from X-ray transients in low mass X-ray binaries, where the stellar evolutionary calculations of accreting neutron stars include neutrino cooling due to strong pion condensations. Our results based on the evolutionary calculations suggest that stronger cooling process would be necessary to be consistent with observations.
