Pulsar Kicks and Spin Tilts in the Close Double Neutron Stars Psr J0737-3039, Psr B1534+12 and Psr B1913+16

In view of the recent measurement of the scintillation velocity for PSR J0737-3039, we examine the complete set of constraints imposed on the pulsar B natal kicks (magnitude and orientation) and predict the most favorable pulsar kick velocity and spin tilt for both isotropic and polar kicks. Our analysis takes into account both currently unknown parameters… (More)
