A Massive Pulsar in a Compact Relativistic Binary
Introduction Neutron stars with masses above 1.8 solar masses (M☉), possess extreme gravitational fields, which may give rise to phenomena outside general relativity. These strong-field deviationsExpand

A Population of Fast Radio Bursts at Cosmological Distances
Mysterious Radio Bursts It has been uncertain whether single, short, and bright bursts of radio emission that have been observed are celestial or terrestrial in origin. Thornton et al. (p. 53; seeExpand

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

Pulsar spectra of radio emission
We have collected pulsar flux density observa- tions and compiled spectra of 281 objects. The database of Lorimer et al. (1995) has been extended to frequencies higher than 1.4 GHz and lower than 300Expand

Long-term timing observations of 374 pulsars
We present pulsar timing solutions for 374 pulsars. Each ephemeris was obtained by analysing archival data stored at Jodrell Bank Observatory. This data archive contains over 5600 yr of pulsarExpand
