Despite its importance to our understanding of physics at supranuclear densities, the equation of state (EoS) of matter deep within neutron stars remains poorly understood. Millisecond pulsars (MSPs) are among the most useful astrophysical objects in the Universe for such tests of fundamental physics, and continue to place some of the most stringent constraints on this high-density EoS. Pulsar timing - the process of accounting for every rotation of a pulsar over long time periods - can… Expand
