Results of timing measurements of the pulsar PSR B0329+54 obtained in 1968–2012 using the Big Scanning Antenna of the Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory (at 102 and 111 MHz), the DSS 13 and DSS 14 telescopes of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (2388 MHz), and the 64 m telescope of the Kalyazin Radio Astronomy Observatory (610 MHz) are presented. The astrometric and rotational parameters of the pulsar are derived at a new epoch. Periodic variations in the barycentric timing residuals have been… 

A Putative Planet Orbiting the Pulsar PSR B0525+21

Using the example of the pulsar B0525+21, a fundamentally new explanation has been proposed for the abrupt period changes observed in many pulsars, namely the presence of a companion orbiting the

The 31 yr Rotation History of the Millisecond Pulsar J1939+2134 (B1937+21)

The timing properties of the millisecond pulsar PSR J1939+2134—very high rotation frequency, very low time derivative of rotation frequency, no timing glitches, and relatively low timing noise—are

Forward Modeling the Orbits of Companions to Pulsating Stars from Their Light Travel Time Variations

Mutual gravitation between a pulsating star and an orbital companion leads to a time-dependent variation in path length for starlight traveling to Earth. These variations can be used for coherently

Search for giant pulses of radio pulsars at frequency 111 MHz with LPA radio telescope

We have used the unique low frequency sensitivity of the Large Phased Array (LPA) radio telescope of Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory to collect a dataset consisting of single pulse observations

The 1969 Glitch in the Crab Pulsar Revisited

Glitches are important to understand the internal structure of neutron stars. They are studied using timing observations. The best studied neutron star in this respect is the Crab Pulsar. The first

Searching for Supermassive Binary Black Holes and their Gravitational Waves

The recent discovery of gravitational waves (GWs) by the LIGO collaboration has opened a new observing window on the universe, but it is limited to the GWs in the frequency range of 10− 1000 Hz. The

Close-in Exoplanets as Candidates for Strange Quark Matter Objects

Since the true ground state of hadrons may be strange quark matter (SQM), pulsars may actually be strange stars rather than neutron stars. According to this SQM hypothesis, strange planets can also



Are There Planets around the Pulsar PSR B0329+54?

Using the pulse arrival time measurements of the pulsar PSR B0329+54 made between 1994 and 1998 with the 100 m Effelsberg and the 32 m Toruń radio telescopes supplemented with the archival JPL data,

A planetary system around the millisecond pulsar PSR1257 + 12

MILLISECOND radio pulsars, which are old (∼109yr), rapidly rotating neutron stars believed to be spun up by accretion of matter from their stellar companions, are usually found in binary systems with

Does PSR0329 + 54 have companions?

An extensive pulse timing programme has been carried out over the past 10 years for several pulsars1–5. The timing observations revealed a wide range of different effects such as glitches, noise in


We present results from timing observations of 27 pulsars made at the Pushchino Observatory over 33.5 yr between 1978 July and 2012 February. We also analyze archival Jet Propulsion Laboratory data

JPL pulsar timing observations. III. Pulsar rotation fluctuations.

Pulsar arrival-time data from a timing program carried out at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory from 1968 to 1982 at 2390 MHz were analyzed to study the precision of neutron star rotation rates. Most of

An analysis of the timing irregularities for 366 pulsars

We provide an analysis of timing irregularities observed for 366 pulsars. Observations were obtained using the 76-m Lovell radio telescope at the Jodrell Bank Observatory over the past 36 years.

JPL pulsar timing observations. II - Geocentric arrival times

Monitoring of the behavior of naturally pulsating galactic radio sources, or pulsars, through regularly spaced measurements of pulse arrival times, has been conducted by several laboratories. A

tempo2, a new pulsar timing package ¿ II. The timing model and precision estimates

Tempo2 is a new software package for the analysis of pulsar pulse times of arrival. In this paper we describe in detail the timing model used by tempo2, and discuss limitations on the attainable

TEMPO2, a new pulsar-timing package - I. An overview

Contemporary pulsar-timing experiments have reached a sensitivity level where systematic errors introduced by existing analysis procedures are limiting the achievable science. We have developed
