Fourteen-year observations of the binary pulsar PSR 1913 + 16 provided data consistent with a straightforward model allowing for the motion of the earth, special and general relativistic effects within the solar system, dispersive propagation in the interstellar medium, relativistic motion of the pulsar in its orbit, and deterministic spin-down behavior of the pulsar itself. The results indicate that at the present level of precision, the PSR 1913 + 16 can be modeled dynamically as a pair of… 
RELATIVISTIC MEASUREMENTS FROM TIMING THE BINARY PULSAR PSR B1913+16
We present relativistic analyses of 9257 measurements of times-of-arrival from the first binary pulsar, PSR B1913+16, acquired over the last 35 years. The determination of the “Keplerian” orbital
Studies of the Relativistic Binary Pulsar PSR B1534+12. I. Timing Analysis
We have continued our long-term study of the double neutron star binary pulsar PSR B1534+12, using new instrumentation to make very high precision measurements at the Arecibo Observatory. We have
Measurement of Relativistic Orbital Decay in the PSR B1534+12 Binary System
We have made timing observations of binary pulsar PSR B1534+12 with radio telescopes at Arecibo, Green Bank, and Jodrell Bank. By combining our new observations with data collected up to seven years
Discovery of a Young Radio Pulsar in a Relativistic Binary Orbit
We report on the discovery of PSR J1141-6545, a radio pulsar in an eccentric, relativistic 5 hr binary orbit. The pulsar shows no evidence of being recycled, having a pulse period P = 394 ms, a
PSR J1518+4904: A mildly relativistic binary pulsar system
PSR J1518+4904 is a recently discovered 40.9 ms pulsar in an 8.6 day, moderately eccentric orbit. We have measured pulse arrival times for this pulsar over 1.4 yr at several radio frequencies, from
Studies of the Relativistic Binary Pulsar PSR B1534+12. II. Origin and Evolution
We have recently measured the angle between the spin and orbital angular momenta of PSR B1534+12 to be either 25° ± 4° or 155° ± 4°. This misalignment was almost certainly caused by an asymmetry in
Tests of General Relativity from Timing the Double Pulsar
TLDR
By measuring relativistic corrections to the Keplerian description of the orbital motion, it is found that the “post-Keplerian” parameter s agrees with the value predicted by general relativity within an uncertainty of 0.05%, the most precise test yet obtained.
Binary pulsars and relativistic gravitation
Radio pulsars, which are rapidly rotating, highly magnetized neutron stars, are known to be extraordinarily precise `celestial clocks' with a variety of applications in astrophysics and fundamental
TIMING MEASUREMENTS OF THE RELATIVISTIC BINARY PULSAR PSR B1913+16
We present results of more than three decades of timing measurements of the first known binary pulsar, PSR B1913+16. Like most other pulsars, its rotational behavior over such long timescales is
THE BINARY COMPANION OF YOUNG, RELATIVISTIC PULSAR J1906+0746
PSR J1906+0746 is a young pulsar in the relativistic binary with the second-shortest known orbital period, of 3.98 hr. We here present a timing study based on five years of observations, conducted
