Gravitational Wave Timing Residual Models for Pulsar Timing Experiments

  title={Gravitational Wave Timing Residual Models for Pulsar Timing Experiments},
  author={Casey McGrath},
Pulsar timing experiments are currently searching for gravitational waves, and this dissertation focuses on the development and study of the pulsar timing residual models used for continuous wave searches. The first goal of this work is to re-present much of the fundamental physics and mathematics concepts behind the calculations and theory used in pulsar timing. While there exist many reference sources in the literature, I try to offer a fully self-contained explanation of the fundamentals of… Expand
