The Australia Telescope National Facility Pulsar Catalogue
We have compiled a new and complete catalog of the main properties of the 1509 pulsars for which published information currently exists. The catalog includes all spin-powered pulsars, as well asExpand
A New Electron Density Model for Estimation of Pulsar and FRB Distances
We present a new model for the distribution of free electrons in the Galaxy, the Magellanic Clouds and the intergalactic medium (IGM) that can be used to estimate distances to real or simulatedExpand
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 starsExpand
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. Expand
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 developedExpand
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
The Parkes multi-beam pulsar survey - I. Observing and data analysis systems, discovery and timing of 100 pulsars
limiting flux density of the survey is about 0.2 mJy. At shorter or longer periods or higher dispersions, the sensitivity is reduced. Timing observations are carried out for pulsars discovered in theExpand
Discovery of two high-magnetic-field radio pulsars
We report the discovery of two young isolated radio pulsars with very high inferred magnetic —elds. PSR J1119(6127 has period P \ 0.407 s, and the largest period derivative known among radio pulsars,Expand
psrchive and psrfits: An Open Approach to Radio Pulsar Data Storage and Analysis
Abstract A new set of software applications and libraries for use in the archival and analysis of pulsar astronomical data is introduced. Known collectively as the psrchive scheme, the code wasExpand
