Discovery of a pulsar in a binary system
The newly discovered pulsar PSR 1913 + 16, which has a period of approximately 0/sup 5/.059 and which undergoes periodic Doppler shifts, indicating that it is a member of a binary system, is
A millisecond pulsar in an eclipsing binary
We have discovered a remarkable pulsar with period 1.6 ms, moving in a nearly circular 9.17-h orbit around a low-mass companion star. At an observing frequency of 430 MHz, the pulsar, PSR1957 + 20,
Catalog of 558 pulsars
We present an up-to-date compilation of the principal observed parameters of 558 pulsars, including positions, timing parameters, pulse widths, flux densities, proper motions, distances, and
A new test of general relativity - Gravitational radiation and the binary pulsar PSR 1913+16
Observations of pulse arrival times from the binary pulsar PSR 1913+16 between 1974 September and 1981 March are now sufficient to yield a solution for the component masses and the absolute size of

In addition to being fascinating objects to study in their own right, pulsars are exquisite tools for probing a variety of issues in basic physics. Recycled pulsars, thought to have been spun up in
The Relativistic binary pulsar B1913+16
We describe the results of a relativistic analysis of our observations of binary pulsar B1913+16, up to the latest measurements in 2001 August.
Orbital Variability in the Eclipsing Pulsar Binary PSR B1957+20
We have conducted timing observations of the eclipsing millisecond binary pulsar PSR~B1957+20, extending the span of data on this pulsar to more than five years. During this time the orbital period
The Masses of Two Binary Neutron Star Systems
The measurement or constraint of the masses of neutron stars and their binary companions tests theories of neutron star structure and of pulsar formation and evolution. We have measured the rate of
Relativistic binary pulsar B1913+16: Thirty years of observations and analysis
We describe results derived from thirty years of observations of PSR B1913+16. Together with the Keplerian orbital parameters, measurements of the relativistic periastron advance and a combination of
