This paper is the second in a series where we report the results of the long-term timing of the millisecond pulsars (MSPs) in 47 Tucanae with the Parkes 64-m radio telescope. We obtain improved timing parameters that provide additional information for studies of the cluster dynamics: a) the pulsar proper motions yield an estimate of the proper motion of the cluster as a whole ($\mu_{\alpha}\, = \, 5.00\, \pm \, 0.14\, \rm mas \, yr^{-1}$, $\mu_{\delta}\, = \, -2.84\, \pm \, 0.12\, \rm mas \, yr… Expand
Long-term observations of pulsars in the globular clusters 47 Tucanae and M15
Abstract Multi-decade observing campaigns of the globular clusters 47 Tucanae and M15 have led to an outstanding number of discoveries. Here, we report on the latest results of the long-termExpand
A Dense Companion to the Short-period Millisecond Pulsar Binary PSR J0636+5128
PSR J0636+5128 is a millisecond pulsar in one of the most compact pulsar binaries known, with a 96\,min orbital period. The pulsar mass function suggests a very low-mass companion, similar to thatExpand
Using long-term millisecond pulsar timing to obtain physical characteristics of the bulge globular cluster Terzan 5
Over the past decade the discovery of three unique stellar populations and a large number of confirmed pulsars within the globular cluster Terzan 5 has raised questions over its classification. UsingExpand
Discovery and Timing of Pulsars in the Globular Cluster M13 with FAST
We report the discovery of a binary millisecond pulsar (namely PSR J1641+3627F or M13F) in the globular cluster M13 (NGC 6205) and timing solutions of M13A to F using observations made with theExpand
Discovery of Millisecond Pulsars in the Globular Cluster Omega Centauri
The globular cluster Omega Centauri is the most massive and luminous cluster in the Galaxy. The $\gamma$-ray source FL8Y J1326.7$-$4729 is coincident with the core of the cluster, leading toExpand
Upgraded Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope timing of NGC 1851A: a possible millisecond pulsar - neutron star system.
TLDR
1 yr of upgraded Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope timing measurements of PSR J0514-4002A, a 4.99-ms pulsar in a 18.8-d eccentric orbit with a massive companion located in the globular cluster NGC 1851, raise the possibility that the companion is also a neutron star. Expand
High-precision pulsar timing and spin frequency second derivatives
We investigate the impact of intrinsic, kinematic and gravitational effects on high precision pulsar timing. We present an analytical derivation and a numerical computation of the impact of theseExpand
On the vanishing orbital X-ray variability of the eclipsing binary millisecond pulsar 47 Tuc W
Redback millisecond pulsars (MSPs) typically show pronounced orbital variability in their X-ray emission due to our changing view of the intrabinary shock (IBS) between the pulsar wind and stellarExpand
The dynamics of Galactic centre pulsars: constraining pulsar distances and intrinsic spin-down
Through high-precision radio timing observations, we show that five recycled pulsars in the direction of the Galactic Centre (GC) have anomalous spin period time derivative ($\dot P$) measurements --Expand

TLDR
The orbits of binary pulsars in the authors' own Galaxy show evidence for the fluctuations which the fluctuation-dissipation theorem implies should occur during the dissipative tidal circularization of orbits, and newtonian dynamical effects may soon add irrefutable confirmation to recent observations suggesting that some pulsars are surrounded by planetary systems similar to their own.
