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 arising
An Eccentric Binary Millisecond Pulsar in the Galactic Plane
In a survey with the Arecibo telescope, a radio pulsar with a rotational period of 2.15 milliseconds in a highly eccentric orbit around a solar mass is found and infrared observations identify a possible main-sequence companion star.
Pulsar J0453+1559: A Double Neutron Star System with a Large Mass Asymmetry
To understand the nature of supernovae and neutron star (NS) formation, as well as binary stellar evolution and their interactions, it is important to probe the distribution of NS masses. Until now,
Upper bounds on the low-frequency stochastic gravitational wave background from pulsar timing observations: current limits and future prospects
Using a statistically rigorous analysis method, we place limits on the existence of an isotropic stochastic gravitational wave background using pulsar timing observations. We consider backgrounds
Timing stability of millisecond pulsars and prospects for gravitational-wave detection
Analysis of high-precision timing observations of an array of " 20 millisecond pulsars (a socalled “timing array”) may ultimately result in the detection of a stochastic gravitational-wave
The NANOGrav 11-year Data Set: High-precision Timing of 45 Millisecond Pulsars
We present high-precision timing data over time spans of up to 11 years for 45 millisecond pulsars observed as part of the North American Nanohertz Observatory for Gravitational Waves (NANOGrav)
The stochastic background: scaling laws and time to detection for pulsar timing arrays
We derive scaling laws for the signal-to-noise ratio of the optimal cross-correlation statistic, and show that the large power-law increase of the signal-to-noise ratio as a function of the the
The International Pulsar Timing Array project: using pulsars as a gravitational wave detector
The International Pulsar Timing Array project combines observations of pulsars from both northern and southern hemisphere observatories with the main aim of detecting ultra-low frequency (similar to
The Parkes Pulsar Timing Array Project
Abstract A ‘pulsar timing array’ (PTA), in which observations of a large sample of pulsars spread across the celestial sphere are combined, allows investigation of ‘global’ phenomena such as a
The Green Bank Northern Celestial Cap Pulsar Survey - I: Survey Description, Data Analysis, and Initial Results
We describe an ongoing search for pulsars and dispersed pulses of radio emission, such as those from rotating radio transients (RRATs) and fast radio bursts (FRBs), at 350 MHz using the Green Bank
