Discoveries of rotating radio transients and fast radio bursts (FRBs) in pulsar surveys suggest that more of such transient sources await discovery in archival data sets. Here we report on a single-pulse search for dispersed radio bursts over a wide range of Galactic latitudes (|b| < $60^{\circ}$) in data previously searched for periodic sources by Burgay et al. We re-detected 20 of the 42 pulsars reported by Burgay et al. and one rotating radio transient reported by Burke-Spolaor. No FRBs were…

New Discoveries from the Arecibo 327 MHz Drift Pulsar Survey Radio Transient Search
We present Clusterrank, a new algorithm for identifying dispersed astrophysical pulses. Such pulses are commonly detected from Galactic pulsars and rotating radio transients (RRATs), which are
A search for highly dispersed fast radio bursts in three Parkes multibeam surveys
We have searched three Parkes multibeam 1.4 GHz surveys for the presence of fast radio bursts (FRBs) out to a dispersion measure (DM) of 5000 pc cm$^{-3}$. These surveys originally targeted the
A targeted search for repeating fast radio bursts associated with gamma-ray bursts
The origin of fast radio bursts (FRBs) still remains a mystery, even with the increased number of discoveries in the last three years. Growing evidence suggests that some FRBs may originate from
The Excess Radio Background and Fast Radio Transients
In the last few years ARCADE 2, combined with older experiments, has detected an additional radio background, measured as a temperature and ranging in frequency from 22 MHz to 10 GHz, not accounted
The GMRT High Resolution Southern Sky Survey for pulsars and transients -I. Survey description and initial discoveries
We are conducting a survey for pulsars and transients using the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT). The GMRT High Resolution Southern Sky (GHRSS) survey is an off-Galactic-plane (|b|>5) survey in
Limits on Fast Radio Bursts and other transient sources at 182 MHz using the Murchison Widefield Array
We present a survey for transient and variable sources, on time-scales from 28 s to ∼1 yr, using the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) at 182 MHz. Down to a detection threshold of 0.285 Jy, no
Fast radio bursts: the observational case for a Galactic origin
There are by now ten published detections of fast radio bursts (FRBs), single bright GHz-band millisecond pulses of unknown origin. Proposed explanations cover a broad range from exotic processes at
Fast radio bursts
The discovery of radio pulsars over a half century ago was a seminal moment in astronomy. It demonstrated the existence of neutron stars, gave a powerful observational tool to study them, and has
A Search for Gamma-Ray Prompt Emission Associated with the Lorimer Burst FRB 010724
No transient electromagnetic emission has yet been found in association to fast radio bursts (FRBs), the only possible exception (3sigma confidence) being the putative gamma-ray signal detected in

Further searches for Rotating Radio Transients in the Parkes Multi-beam Pulsar Survey
TLDR
Ten new transient radio sources discovered in a re-analysis of the Parkes Multi-beam Pulsar Survey suggest that the population of transient radio-emitting neutron stars, and hence the neutron star population in general, may be even larger than initially predicted.
Transient radio bursts from rotating neutron stars
TLDR
A search for radio sources that vary on much shorter timescales, finding eleven objects characterized by single, dispersed bursts having durations between 2 and 30 ms, suggesting origins in rotating neutron stars.
Fast Radio Burst Discovered in the Arecibo Pulsar ALFA Survey
Recent work has exploited pulsar survey data to identify temporally isolated, millisecond-duration radio bursts with large dispersion measures (DMs). These bursts have been interpreted as arising
The Galactic Position Dependence of Fast Radio Bursts and the Discovery of FRB011025
We report the detection of a dispersed fast radio burst (FRB) in archival intermediate-latitude Parkes Radio Telescope data. The burst appears to be of the same physical origin as the four purported
An Absence of Fast Radio Bursts at Intermediate Galactic Latitudes
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are an emerging class of bright, highly dispersed radio pulses. Recent work by Thornton et al. has revealed a population of FRBs in the High Time Resolution Universe (HTRU)
A Population of Fast Radio Bursts at Cosmological Distances
TLDR
The detection of four nonrepeating radio transient events with millisecond duration in data from the 64-meter Parkes radio telescope in Australia indicates that these radio bursts had their origin outside the authors' galaxy, but it is not possible to tell what caused them.

Fast radio bursts: search sensitivities and completeness
In this paper we identify some sub-optimal performance in algorithms that search for Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs), which can reduce the cosmological volume probed by over 20%, and result in missed

We describe observations of Rotating Radio Transients (RRATs) that were discovered in a re-analysis of the Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey (PMPS). The sources have now been monitored for sufficiently
