THE SECOND FERMI LARGE AREA TELESCOPE CATALOG OF GAMMA-RAY PULSARS
This catalog summarizes 117 high-confidence > 0.1 GeV gamma-ray pulsar detections using three years of data acquired by the Large Area Telescope (LAT) on the Fermi satellite. Half are neutron starsExpand

A statistical study of 233 pulsar proper motions
We present and analyse a catalogue of 233 pulsars with proper motion measurements. The sample contains a wide variety of pulsars including recycled objects and those associated with globular clustersExpand

An increased estimate of the merger rate of double neutron stars from observations of a highly relativistic system
The merger of close binary systems containing two neutron stars should produce a burst of gravitational waves, as predicted by the theory of general relativity. A reliable estimate of theExpand

A Double-Pulsar System: A Rare Laboratory for Relativistic Gravity and Plasma Physics
The clocklike properties of pulsars moving in the gravitational fields of their unseen neutron-star companions have allowed unique tests of general relativity and provided evidence for gravitationalExpand

The First Fermi Large Area Telescope Catalog of Gamma-ray Pulsars
The dramatic increase in the number of known gamma-ray pulsars since the launch of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (formerly GLAST) offers the first opportunity to study a population of theseExpand

Fast Radio Burst Discovered in the Arecibo Pulsar ALFA Survey
Recent work has exploited pulsar survey data to identify temporally isolated, millisecond-duration radio bursts with large dispersion measures (DMs). These bursts have been interpreted as arisingExpand

PSR 1259-63 : a binary radio pulsar with a Be star companion
The discovery of the first known radio pulsar with a massive, nondegenerate companion is reported. PSR 1259-63, found during a large-scale high-frequency survey of the southern Galactic plane, has aExpand

The Parkes multi-beam pulsar survey - I. Observing and data analysis systems, discovery and timing of 100 pulsars
limiting flux density of the survey is about 0.2 mJy. At shorter or longer periods or higher dispersions, the sensitivity is reduced. Timing observations are carried out for pulsars discovered in theExpand

Very low braking index for the Vela pulsar
THE rotation rate of a pulsar is thought to decrease with time according to a simple power law, with a 'braking index' equal to 3 if rotational energy is lost through radiation from a dipolarExpand
