The Large Area Telescope (LAT), Fermi’s main instrument, is providing a new view of the local energetic pulsar population. In addition to identifying a pulsar origin of a large fraction of the bright unidentified Galactic EGRET sources, the LAT results provide a great opportunity to study a sizable population of high-energy pulsars. Correlations of their physical properties, such as the trend of the luminosity versus the rotational energy loss rate, help identify global features of the gamma… Expand

A New Model for the Galactic Distribution of Free Electrons and its Fluctuations
We present a new model for the Galactic distribution of free electrons. It (a) describes the distribution of the free electrons responsible for pulsar dispersion measures and thus can be used forExpand
