The angular momentum transfer mechanism of pulsar glitches for over four decades now stands as standalone theory with regards to glitch sizes and inter-glitch time intervals. However, recent analyses both analytic and statistical are on the verge of suppressing the theory. In this paper, we overviewed the superfluid theory to highlight the efficacy of the angular momentum process and highlighted the theoretical and observational evidences that could not be explained by processes involving… CONTINUE READING
