Distant Companions and Planets around Millisecond Pulsars

Abstract

We present a general method for determining the masses and orbital parameters of binary millisecond pulsars with long orbital periods (Porb ≫ 1 yr), using timing data in the form of pulse frequency derivatives. Our method can be used even when the available timing data cover only a small fraction of an orbit, but it requires high-precision measurements of… (More)
