Gravitational waves from binary supermassive black holes missing in pulsar observations
Placing bounds on gravitational wave detection Gravitational waves are expected to be generated by the interaction of the massive bodies in black-hole binary systems. As gravitational waves distortExpand

Timing analysis for 20 millisecond pulsars in the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array
We present timing models for 20 millisecond pulsars in the Parkes Pulsar Timing Array. The precision of the parameter measurements in these models has been improved over earlier results by usingExpand

A fast radio burst localized to a massive galaxy
Intense, millisecond-duration bursts of radio waves (named fast radio bursts) have been detected from beyond the Milky Way1. Their dispersion measures—which are greater than would be expected if theyExpand

A fast radio burst associated with a Galactic magnetar.
Since their discovery in 20071, much effort has been devoted to uncovering the sources of the extragalactic, millisecond-duration fast radio bursts (FRBs)2. A class of neutron stars known asExpand

A fast radio burst in the direction of the Carina dwarf spheroidal galaxy
We report the real-time discovery of a fast radio burst (FRB 131104) with the Parkes radio telescope in a targeted observation of the Carina dwarf spheroidal galaxy. The dispersion measure of theExpand

The magnetic field and turbulence of the cosmic web measured using a brilliant fast radio burst
Probing the intergalactic magnetic field Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are powerful flashes of astronomical radio waves that last just milliseconds and whose origins are a matter of debate. Ravi et al.Expand

Measurement and correction of variations in interstellar dispersion in high-precision pulsar timing
Signals from radio pulsars show a wavelength-dependent delay due to dispersion in the interstellar plasma. At a typical observing wavelength, this delay can vary by tens of microseconds on 5-yrExpand

Nuclear equation of state from observations of short gamma-ray burst remnants
The favored progenitor model for short $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-ray bursts (SGRBs) is the merger of two neutron stars that triggers an explosion with a burst of collimated $\ensuremath{\gamma}$-rays.Expand

The first interferometric detections of fast radio bursts
We present the first interferometric detections of Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs), an enigmatic new class of astrophysical transient. In a 180-day survey of the Southern sky we discovered 3 FRBs at 843 MHzExpand

Detection of 107 glitches in 36 southern pulsars
Timing observations from the Parkes 64-m radio telescope for 165 pulsarsbetween 1990 and 2011 have been searched for period glitches. Data spansfor each pulsar ranged between 5.3 and 20.8 yr. FromExpand
