TEMPO2, a new pulsar-timing package - I. An overview
Contemporary pulsar-timing experiments have reached a sensitivity level where systematic errors introduced by existing analysis procedures are limiting the achievable science. We have developed
tempo2, a new pulsar timing package ¿ II. The timing model and precision estimates
Tempo2 is a new software package for the analysis of pulsar pulse times of arrival. In this paper we describe in detail the timing model used by tempo2, and discuss limitations on the attainable
Precision Timing of PSR J0437–4715: An Accurate Pulsar Distance, a High Pulsar Mass, and a Limit on the Variation of Newton's Gravitational Constant
Analysis of 10 years of high-precision timing data on the millisecond pulsar PSR J0437–4715 has resulted in a model-independent kinematic distance based on an apparent orbital period derivative, P_b,
The subpulse modulation properties of pulsars at 21 cm
We present the results of a systematic, unbiased search for subpulse modulation of 187 pulsars performed with the Westerbork Synthesis Radio Telescope (WSRT) in the Netherlands at an observing
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
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 Swinburne intermediate-latitude pulsar survey
We have conducted a survey of intermediate Galactic latitudes using the 13-beam 21-cm multibeam receiver of the Parkes 64-m radio telescope. The survey covered the region enclosed by 5°<|b|<15° and
TEMPO2: a New Pulsar Timing Package
TEMPO2 is a new pulsar timing package that provides the precision necessary for modern millisecond timing projects and should supersede all existing pulsar timing packages such as TEMPO and PSRTIME.
The subpulse modulation properties of pulsars at 92 cm and the frequency dependence of subpulse modulation
Context: A large sample of pulsars has been observed to study their subpulse modulation at an observing wavelength (when achievable) of both 21 and 92 cm using the Westerbork Synthesis Radio
Ellipticity and deviations from orthogonality in the polarization modes of PSR B0329+54
We report on an analysis of the polarization of single pulses of PSR B0329+54 at 328 MHz. We find that the distribution of polarization orientations in the central component diverges strongly from
