We consider the magnetohydrodynamical interaction between the relativistic wind outflowing from pulsar A and the static magnetosphere of pulsar B in the binary pulsar system PSR J0737-3039. We construct a semi-analytical model describing the form of the interface separating the two pulsars. The assumption of vacuum dipole spin-down for pulsar B leads to a duration of the eclipse 10 times longer than observed. We discuss a possible torque modification for pulsar B and magnetic field estimates…

MAGNETOSPHERIC ECLIPSES IN THE DOUBLE-PULSAR SYSTEM PSR J0737 3039
We argue that eclipses of radio emission from the millisecond pulsar A in the double-pulsar system PSR J0737-3039 are due to synchrotron absorption by plasma in the closed field line region of the
MAGNETOSPHERIC ECLIPSES IN THE DOUBLE PULSAR SYSTEM PSR J0737-3039
In the binary radio pulsar system PSR J0737-3039, the faster pulsar, A, is eclipsed once per orbit. A clear modulation of these eclipses at the 2.77 s period of pulsar B has recently been discovered.
Eclipses and orbital modulations in binary pulsar PSR J0737-3039
Orbital modulation of emission of the binary pulsar J0737-3039b
In the binary radio pulsar system J0737−3039, the slow pulsar B shows intense orbital modulations, with these being especially bright at two short orbital phases. We propose that these modulations
PSR J0737-3039B: A PROBE OF RADIO PULSAR EMISSION HEIGHTS
In the double pulsar system PSR J0737–3039A/B, the strong wind produced by pulsar A distorts the magnetosphere of pulsar B. The influence of these distortions on the orbital-dependent emission
THE DOUBLE PULSAR ECLIPSES. I. PHENOMENOLOGY AND MULTI-FREQUENCY ANALYSIS
The double pulsar PSR J0737–3039A/B displays short, 30 s eclipses that arise around conjunction when the radio waves emitted by pulsar A are absorbed as they propagate through the magnetosphere of
THE EVOLUTION OF PSR J0737–3039B AND A MODEL FOR RELATIVISTIC SPIN PRECESSION
We present the evolution of the radio emission from the 2.8 s pulsar of the double pulsar system PSR J0737- 3039A/B. We provide an update on the Burgay et al. analysis by describing the changes in
The Double Pulsar System J0737-3039: Modulation of A by B at Eclipse
We have investigated the eclipse of the 23 ms pulsar, PSR J0737-3039A, by its 2.8 s companion PSR J0737-3039B in the recently discovered double pulsar system using data taken with the Green Bank
Is the Bursting Radio Source GCRT J1745–3009 a Double Neutron Star Binary?
GCRT J1745-3009 is a peculiar transient radio source in the direction of the Galactic center. It was observed to emit a series of ~1 Jy bursts at 0.33 GHz, with a typical duration of ~10 minutes and
