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 deviations
A Population of Fast Radio Bursts at Cosmological Distances
The detection of four nonrepeating radio transient events with millisecond duration in data from the 64-meter Parkes radio telescope in Australia indicates that these radio bursts had their origin outside the authors' galaxy, but it is not possible to tell what caused them.
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 clusters
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).
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
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.
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 300
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 pulsar

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 these
