The double pulsar system PSR J0737-3039A/B offers exceptional possibilities for detailed probes of the structure of the pulsar magnetosphere, pulsar winds and relativistic reconnection. We numerically model the distortions of the magnetosphere of pulsar B by the magnetized wind from pulsar A, including effects of magnetic reconnection and of the geodetic precession. Geodetic precession leads to secular evolution of the geometric parameters and effectively allows a 3D view of the magnetosphere… 

Coupled axisymmetric pulsar magnetospheres

We present solutions of force-free pulsar magnetospheres coupled with a uniform external magnetic field aligned with the dipole magnetic moment of the pulsar. The inclusion of the uniform magnetic

Understanding and improving the timing of PSR J0737−3039B

The double pulsar (PSR J0737-3039A/B) provides some of the most stringent tests of general relativity (GR) and its alternatives. The success of this system in tests of GR is largely due to the

A FAN BEAM MODEL FOR RADIO PULSARS. I. OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE

We propose a novel beam model for radio pulsars based on the scenario that the broadband and coherent emission from secondary relativistic particles, as they move along a flux tube in a dipolar

FRB Periodicity: Mild Pulsars in Tight O/B-star Binaries

Periodicities observed in two fast radio burst (FRB) sources (16 days in FRB 180916.J0158+65 and 160 days in FRB 121102) are consistent with that of tight, stellar-mass binary systems. In the case of

Coherent emission mechanisms in astrophysical plasmas

Three known examples of coherent emission in radio astronomical sources are reviewed: plasma emission, electron cyclotron maser emission (ECME) and pulsar radio emission. Plasma emission is a

Consequences of a strong phase transition in the dense matter equation of state for the rotational evolution of neutron stars

We explore the implications of a strong first-order phase transition region in the dense matter equation of state in the interiors of rotating neutron stars, and the resulting creation of two

A Direct Measurement of Sense of Rotation of PSR J0737–3039A

We apply the algorithm published by Liang et al. to describe the Double Pulsar system J0737–3039 and extract the sense of rotation of the first born recycled pulsar PSR J0737–3039A. We find that this

The fan-beam model for the pulse evolution of PSR J0737−3039B

Average radio pulse profile of a pulsar B in a double pulsar system PSR J0737-3039A/B exhibits an interesting behaviour. During the observation period between 2003 and 2009, the profile evolves from

LONG-TERM STUDY OF THE DOUBLE PULSAR J0737–3039 WITH XMM-NEWTON: PULSAR TIMING

The relativistic double neutron star binary PSR J0737−3039 shows clear evidence of orbital phase-dependent wind-companion interaction, both in radio and X-rays. In this paper, we present the results

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

A Model for the Flaring Radio Emission in the Double Pulsar System J0737–3039

The binary system J0737-3039AB includes two pulsars in a highly relativistic orbit. The pulsed radio flux from pulsar B brightens considerably during two portions of each orbit. This phenomenon

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

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

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.

The geometry of the double-pulsar system J0737–3039 from systematic intensity variations

A geometrical model of the PSR J0737–3039 system is reported that simultaneously explains the intensity variations of B and provides constraints on the spin axis orientation and emission geometry of A and predicts that A's pulse profile will evolve considerably over the next several years owing to geodetic precession.
