  author={Matthew Bailes and Andrew G. Lyne and Setnam Shemar},
CONVENTIONAL optical techniques for detecting companions to stars have been unable to confirm the existence of other planetary systems. This is because of the small angular separation (less than an arcsecond) and relative luminosity (˜10–10 of any planet with respect to its parent star. As the velocity of the star due to the motion of a planet is likely to be only about one metre per second, detection through the Doppler shift of spectral lines in the stellar atmosphere is also impractical… Expand
The origin of the planet orbiting PSR1829 – 10
BAILES et al.1 have reported the discovery of a planet-mass object in a six-month orbit around the radio pulsar PS R1829–10. The parameters of the orbit, in particular its circularity, make itExpand
A planetary system around the millisecond pulsar PSR1257 + 12
MILLISECOND radio pulsars, which are old (∼109yr), rapidly rotating neutron stars believed to be spun up by accretion of matter from their stellar companions, are usually found in binary systems withExpand
Toward planets around neutron stars
The two Earth-like mass objects orbiting a 6.2-ms pulsar, PSR1257+25, have survived more than one year of close scrutiny aimed at verifying their existence and remain the most serious candidates toExpand
Discovery of pulsar planets
Abstract In this paper I recount the events which have led to the discovery of the first planets beyond the Solar System. The two planets circling an old neutron star, the 6.2 ms pulsar PSR B1257+12,Expand
Formation of a planet orbiting pulsar 1829–10 from the debris of a supernova explosion
THE 10-Earth-mass planet1 in a nearly circular 0.7-AU orbit around PSR1829–10 is unlikely to have survived the supernova, or especially the pre-supernova evolution of the star that became the pulsar.Expand
Extra-solar planets
The discovery of the first extra-solar planet surrounding a main-sequence star was announced in 1995, based on very precise radial velocity (Doppler) measurements. A total of 34 such planets wereExpand
An observational test for the existence of a planetary system orbiting PSR1257 + 12
FOLLOWING the first report1 of an object of planetary mass orbiting a pulsar, Wolszczan and Frail2 have now reported the even more surprising discovery of two planet-size companions in orbit aroundExpand
Possibility of Detection of Exomoons with Inclined Orbits Orbiting Pulsar Planets Using the Time-of-Arrival Analysis
The perturbation caused by planet-moon binarity on the time-of-arrival (TOA) signal of a pulsar with an orbiting planet is derived for the case of the orbit of the planet-moon system inclined of anExpand
The Anglo-Australian planet search. XXI. A gas-giant planet in a one year orbit and the habitability of gas-giant satellites
We have detected the Doppler signature of a gas-giant exoplanet orbiting the star HD 38283, in an eccentric orbit with a period of almost exactly one year (P = 363.2 ± 1.6 d, m sin i = 0.34 ± 0.02 MExpand
Confirmation of Earth-Mass Planets Orbiting the Millisecond Pulsar PSR B1257 + 12
The unambiguous detection of this effect, after 3 years of systematic timing observations of PSR B1257+12 with the 305-meter Arecibo radiotelescope, constitutes irrefutable evidence that the first planetary system around a star other than the sun has been identified. Expand


Ejection of Companion Objects by Supernovae
IT is possible that supernovae occur in conjunction with either a satellite planet or binary star. Assuming that neutron stars are the result of such detonations, one asks in what conditions could aExpand
The Origin of Pulsar Velocities and the Velocity Magnetic Moment Correlation
By considering the evolution of intermediate mass binary systems with periods similar to the Be X-ray binaries we find that if a kick velocity of a few hundred kilometres per second is imparted toExpand
Fate of the companion stars of ultra-rapid pulsars
A millisecond pulsar that is formed by spin-up 'recycling'1,2 in a binary system will, once the mass transfer becomes temporarily interrupted, start to evaporate its companion star as a consequenceExpand
Physical Sciences: Planet, Pulsar, “Glitch” and Wisp
One or more planets may be orbiting the pulsar in the Crab Nebula and the Princeton group have tentatively fitted their pulse arrival time residuals by invoking three planets. Expand
Long Period Oscillations in Rotating Neutron Stars
The frequency of the oscillation mode of the rotating superfluid is insensitive to unknown parameters describing the stellar interior, and is close to the “wobble” reported for the period of the Crab pulsar. Expand
The elastic energy and character of quakes in solid stars and planets
Abstract The quadrupolar mechanical energy of a rotating axially symmetric solid planet (with or without a liquid interior) is calculated using methods previously developed for neutron stars in whichExpand
PSR1737–30 and period discontinuities in young pulsars
THE rotation rate of pulsars decreases as kinetic energy is lost by the emission of electromagnetic radiation and particles. This gradual spin-down is sometimes interrupted, however, by abruptExpand
Trompe L'Oeil binary pulsars
A freely precessing pulsar produces pulse phase residuals which can mimic those of a pulsar in a binary orbit. In particular, discrete sets of phase residuals due to precessional motion of anExpand
PSR 1820–11: a binary pulsar in a wide and highly eccentric orbit
HERE we present timing measurements of the pulsar, PSR 1820–11, which show it to be in a binary system with a wide and highly eccentric orbit. This combination of orbital characteristics has not beenExpand
High-radio-frequency survey for young and millisecond pulsars
A high-radio-frequency survey for distant pulsars is being carried out at Jodrell Bank. An area of 200 square degrees along the galactic plane has been observed with high sensitivity for objectsExpand
