An increased estimate of the merger rate of double neutron stars from observations of a highly relativistic system
This work reports the discovery of a 22-ms pulsar, PSR J0737–3039, which is a member of a highly relativistic double-neutron-star binary with an orbital period of 2.4 hours, which implies an order-of-magnitude increase in the predicted merger rate for double- NEUTron- star systems in the authors' Galaxy (and in the rest of the Universe).
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 stars…
1E 1547.0–5408: A Radio-emitting Magnetar with a Rotation Period of 2 Seconds
The variable X-ray source 1E 1547.0-5408 was identified by Gelfand & Gaensler as a likely magnetar in G327.24-0.13, an apparent supernova remnant. No X-ray pulsations have been detected from it.…
A repeating fast radio burst
These repeat bursts with high dispersion measure and variable spectra specifically seen from the direction of FRB 121102 support an origin in a young, highly magnetized, extragalactic neutron star.
A Double-Pulsar System: A Rare Laboratory for Relativistic Gravity and Plasma Physics
The detection of the 2.8-second pulsar J0737–3039B as the companion to the 23-millisecond pulsars in a highly relativistic double neutron star system, allowing unprecedented tests of fundamental gravitational physics.
A Radio Pulsar Spinning at 716 Hz
A 716-hertz eclipsing binary radio pulsar in the globular cluster Terzan 5 using the Green Bank Telescope is discovered, it is the fastest spinning neutron star found to date, and constrains models that suggest that gravitational radiation, through an r-mode (Rossby wave) instability, limits the maximum spin frequency of neutron stars.
Transient pulsed radio emission from a magnetar
It is shown that XTE J1810 - 197 emits bright, narrow, highly linearly polarized radio pulses, observed at every rotation, thereby establishing that magnetars can be radio pulsars.
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 sizable population of…
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 the…
Tests of General Relativity from Timing the Double Pulsar
By measuring relativistic corrections to the Keplerian description of the orbital motion, it is found that the “post-Keplerian” parameter s agrees with the value predicted by general relativity within an uncertainty of 0.05%, the most precise test yet obtained.
