We present the results of radio searches for pulsars within unidentified EGRET source error boxes. Using the Parkes multibeam system, we have surveyed 56 sources at Galactic latitudes |b| > 5 deg which do not appear to be associated with blazars. This population has been suggested to be distributed like the local star forming region known as the Gould Belt, the Galactic Halo, and/or the millisecond pulsars. We have discovered several new pulsars in this survey, including three new binary…

Pulsars and their nebulae as EGRET sources
Abstract At the end of the EGRET mission, only 6–8 Galactic sources had been identified as young pulsars. Since then, several energetic pulsars have been detected in EGRET error boxes along the


Pulsar populations and unidentified γ-ray sources
Abstract The EGRET telescope on the Compton Gamma-ray Observatory detected over 200 sources and the majority of these are still unidentified. At least three subpopulations of EGRET sources have been
Point Sources of GeV Gamma Rays
A catalog of c-ray sources based on photons with energies greater than 1 GeV has been developed from observations taken by the EGRET instrument of the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory. The data are
Off-Beam Gamma-Ray Pulsars and Unidentified EGRET Sources in the Gould Belt
We investigate whether gamma-ray pulsars viewed at a large angle to the neutron star magnetic pole could contribute to the new population of Galactic unidentified EGRET sources associated with the
The ASCA Catalog of Potential X-Ray Counterparts of GEV Sources
We present a catalog of 2-10 keV ASCA Gas Imaging Spectrometer images of fields containing bright sources of GeV emission. The images cover ~85% of the 95% confidence position contour for 28 of the
The Parkes multi-beam pulsar survey - I. Observing and data analysis systems, discovery and timing of 100 pulsars
limiting flux density of the survey is about 0.2 mJy. At shorter or longer periods or higher dispersions, the sensitivity is reduced. Timing observations are carried out for pulsars discovered in the
The Swinburne intermediate-latitude pulsar survey
We have conducted a survey of intermediate Galactic latitudes using the 13-beam 21-cm multibeam receiver of the Parkes 64-m radio telescope. The survey covered the region enclosed by 5°<|b|<15° and
Young isolated neutron stars from the Gould Belt
The origin of the local population of young, cooling neutron stars is investigated with a population synthesis model taking into account the contribution of neutron stars born in the Gould Belt, in
A Quantitative Evaluation of Potential Radio Identifications for 3EG EGRET Sources
The method of Mattox et al. for identifying EGRET sources with 5 GHz radio sources has been applied to the 3EG EGRET catalog of Hartman et al. Complete results are tabulated. We tabulate separately
