We report the discovery of three pulsars whose large dispersion measures and angular proximity to \sgr indicate the existence of a Galactic center population of neutron stars. The relatively long periods (0.98 to 1.48 s) most likely reflect strong selection against short-period pulsars from radio-wave scattering at the observation frequency of 2 GHz used in our survey with the Green Bank Telescope. One object (PSR J1746-2850I) has a characteristic spindown age of only 13 kyr along with a high… Expand

MULTIWAVELENGTH CONSTRAINTS ON PULSAR POPULATIONS IN THE GALACTIC CENTER
The detection of radio pulsars within the central few parsecs of the Galaxy would provide a unique probe of the gravitational and magneto-ionic environments in the Galactic center (GC) and, if closeExpand
The Proper Motion of the Galactic Center Pulsar Relative to Sagittarius A
We measure the proper motion of the pulsar PSR J1745-2900 relative to the Galactic center massive black hole, Sgr A*, using the Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA). The pulsar has a transverse velocityExpand
The Peculiar Pulsar Population of the Central Parsec
Pulsars orbiting the Galactic center black hole, Sgr A*, would be potential probes of its mass, distance, and spin, and may even be used to test general relativity. Despite predictions of largeExpand
Searching For Pulsars Associated With the Fermi GeV Excess
The Fermi Large Area Telescope has detected an extended region of GeV emission toward the Galactic Center that is currently thought to be powered by dark matter annihilation or a population of youngExpand
Radio properties of the magnetar near sagittarius A* from observations with the Australia telescope compact array
We have carried out observations of the newly-discovered magnetar in the direction of Sagittarius A* using the Australia Telescope Compact Array in four frequency bands from 4.5 to 20 GHz. RadioExpand
A HIGH-FREQUENCY SEARCH FOR PULSARS WITHIN THE CENTRAL PARSEC OF Sgr A*
We report results from a deep high-frequency search for pulsars within the central parsec of Sgr A* using the Green Bank Telescope. The observing frequency of 15 GHz was chosen to maximize theExpand
The High Time Resolution Universe Pulsar Survey – XII. Galactic plane acceleration search and the discovery of 60 pulsars
We present initial results from the low-latitude Galactic plane region of the High Time Resolution Universe pulsar survey conducted at the Parkes 64-m radio telescope. We discuss the computationalExpand
A transient, flat spectrum radio pulsar near the Galactic Centre
Recent studies have shown possible connections between highly magnetized neutron stars ('magnetars'), whose X-ray emission is too bright to be powered by rotational energy, and ordinary radioExpand
On Detecting Millisecond Pulsars at the Galactic Center
The lack of detected pulsars at the Galactic Center (GC) region is a long-standing mystery. We argue that the high stellar density in the central parsec around the GC is likely to result in a pulsarExpand
A 6.5-GHz multibeam pulsar survey
A survey of the Galactic plane in the region −60 ◦ ≤ l ≤ 30 ◦ , |b |≤ 0. 25 was carried out using the seven-beam Parkes methanol multibeam (MMB) receiver, which operates at a frequency of 6.5 GHz.Expand

The Ages of Stars
The age of an individual star cannot be measured, only estimated through mostly model-dependent or empirical methods, and no single method works well for a broad range of stellar types or for a fullExpand
