Neutron Star/Supernova Remnant Associations

  title={Neutron Star/Supernova Remnant Associations},
  author={Victoria M. Kaspi},
The evidence for associations between neutron stars and supernova remnants is reviewed. After summarizing the situation for young radio pulsars, I consider the evidence from associations that young neutron stars can have properties very different from those of radio pulsars. This, though still controversial, shakes our simple perception of the Crab pulsar as prototypical of the young neutron star population.
