There are currently two well-accepted models that explain how pulsars exhibit glitches, sudden changes in their regular rotational spin-down. According to the starquake model, the glitch healing parameter Q, which is measurable in some cases from pulsar timing, should be equal to the ratio of the moment of inertia of the superfluid core of a neutron star (NS) to its total moment of inertia. Measured values of the healing parameter from pulsar glitches can therefore be used in combination with… Expand

A starquake model for the Vela pulsar
The measured values of the glitch healing parameter, Q, of the Vela pulsar are found to be inconsistent with the starquake mechanism for glitch generation in various neutron star (NS) models, basedExpand
Neutron star sequences and the starquake glitch model for the Crab and the Vela pulsars
We construct for the first time, the sequences of stable neutron star (NS) models capable of explaining simultaneously, the glitch healing parameters, Q, of both the pulsars, the Crab (Q≥0.7) and theExpand
The effect of realistic equations of state and general relativity on the 'snowplough' model for pulsar glitches
Many pulsars are observed to ‘glitch’, i.e. show sudden jumps in their rotational frequency ν, some of which can be as large as Δν/ν ≈ 10−6—10−5 in a subset of pulsars known as giant glitchers.Expand
Models of Pulsar Glitches
Radio pulsars provide us with some of the most stable clocks in the universe. Nevertheless several pulsars exhibit sudden spin-up events, known as glitches. More than forty years after their firstExpand
Recent glitches detected in the Crab pulsar
From 2000 to 2010, monitoring of radio emission from the Crab pulsar at Xinjiang Observatory detected a total of nine glitches. The occurrence of glitches appears to be a random process as describedExpand

We study analytic core-envelope models obtained in Negi et al. (1989) under slow rotation. We have regarded in the present study, the lower bound on the estimate of moment of inertia of the CrabExpand
An upper bound on the energy of a gravitationally redshifted electron-positron annihilation line from the Crab pulsar
We present a causally consistent and pulsationally stable two component neutron star model on the basis of the criterion that for each assigned value of σ(≡(P0/E0) ≡ the ratio of central pressure toExpand
Neutron stars and their terrestrial analogues
When we consider in detail the behaviour of a fluid consisting of two (or possibly more) interpenetrating components, the likelihood of dynamical instabilities induced by coupling between the twoExpand
Gravitational-wave bursts and stochastic background from superfluid vortex avalanches during pulsar glitches
The current-quadrupole gravitational-wave signal emitted during the spin-up phase of a pulsar glitch is calculated from first principles by modelling the vortex dynamics observed in recentExpand
Transient gravitational waves from pulsar post-glitch recoveries
This work explores whether gravitational waves (GWs) from neutron star (NS) mountains can be detected with current 2nd-generation and future 3rd-generation GW detectors. In particular, we focus on aExpand

Glitches in Southern Pulsars
TLDR
Analysis of glitch parameters shows that most glitches have a fractional amplitude Delta nu(g)/nu of between 10(-8) and 10(-6), and there is no consistent relationship between glitch amplitude and the time since the previous glitch or the time to the following glitch, either for the ensemble or for individual pulsars.
