The relatively unexplored fast radio transient parameter space is known to be home to a variety of interesting sources, including pulsars, pulsar giant pulses, and non-thermal emission from planetary magnetospheres. In addition, a variety of hypothesized but as-yet-unobserved phenomena such as primordial black hole evaporation and prompt emission associated with coalescing massive objects have been suggested. The 2007 announcement by Lorimer et al. of the detection of a bright (30 Jy) radio… 
Searches for radio transients
TLDR
The techniques, strategies and challenges involved in their detections are described and the world-wide efforts currently under way, both through scientific discoveries enabled by the ongoing large-scale surveys at Parkes and Arecibo, as well as technical developments involving the exploratory use of multi-element array instruments such as VLBA and GMRT.
On the detectability of extragalactic fast radio transients
Recent discoveries of highly dispersed millisecond radio bursts by Thornton et al. in a survey with the Parkes radio telescope at 1.4 GHz point towards an emerging population of sources at
Limits on the Ultra-bright Fast Radio Burst Population from the CHIME Pathfinder
We present results from a new incoherent-beam fast radio burst (FRB) search on the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME) Pathfinder. Its large instantaneous field of view (FoV) and
VAST: An ASKAP Survey for Variables and Slow Transients
Abstract The Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) will give us an unprecedented opportunity to investigate the transient sky at radio wavelengths. In this paper we present VAST, an
Short-duration Radio Bursts with Apparent Extragalactic Dispersion
We present the results of the longest yet undertaken search for apparently extragalactic radio bursts at the Bleien Radio Observatory covering 21,000 hr (898 days). The data were searched for events
The Fluence and Distance Distributions of Fast Radio Bursts
Fast radio bursts (FRB) are millisecond-duration radio pulses with apparent extragalactic origins. All but two of the FRBs have been discovered using the Parkes dish, which employs multiple beams
The RRAT Trap: Interferometric Localization of Radio Pulses from J0628+0909
We present the first blind interferometric detection and imaging of a millisecond radio transient with an observation of transient pulsar J0628+0909. We developed a special observing mode of the Karl
Fast Radio Transient searches with UTMOST at 843 MHz
We report the first radio interferometric search at 843 MHz for fast transients, particularly Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs). The recently recommissioned Swinburne University of Technology's digital
GIANT SPARKS AT COSMOLOGICAL DISTANCES?
Millisecond-duration bright radio pulses at 1.4 GHz with high dispersion measures (DMs) were reported by Lorimer et al., Keane et al., and Thornton et al. Their all-sky rate is ≈104 day−1 above ∼1
A search for Fast Radio Bursts at low frequencies with Murchison Widefield Array high time resolution imaging
We present the results of a pilot study search for fast radio bursts (FRBs) using the Murchison Widefield Array (MWA) at low frequencies (139–170 MHz). We utilized MWA data obtained in a routine

Transient radio bursts from rotating neutron stars
TLDR
A search for radio sources that vary on much shorter timescales, finding eleven objects characterized by single, dispersed bursts having durations between 2 and 30 ms, suggesting origins in rotating neutron stars.
LONG-DURATION RADIO TRANSIENTS LACKING OPTICAL COUNTERPARTS ARE POSSIBLY GALACTIC NEUTRON STARS
Recently, a new class of radio transients in the 5 GHz band and with durations of the order of hours to days, lacking any visible-light counterparts, was detected by Bower and collaborators. We
Rotating Radio Transients: new discoveries, timing solutions and musings
We describe observations of Rotating Radio Transients (RRATs) that were discovered in a re-analysis of the Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey (PMPS). The sources have now been monitored for sufficiently
A SEARCH FOR RADIO TRANSIENTS IN VERY LARGE ARRAY ARCHIVAL IMAGES OF THE 3C 286 FIELD
We present a search for radio transients (RTs) in the field of the bright radio source 3C 286 using archival observations from the Very Large Array (VLA). These observations span 23 years and include
RADIO BURSTS WITH EXTRAGALACTIC SPECTRAL CHARACTERISTICS SHOW TERRESTRIAL ORIGINS
Three years ago, the report of a solitary radio burst was thought to be the first discovery of a rare, impulsive event of unknown extragalactic origin. The extragalactic interpretation was based on
Bright Giant Pulses from the Crab Nebula Pulsar: Statistical Properties, Pulse Broadening, and Scattering Due to the Nebula
We report observations of Crab giant pulses made with the Australia Telescope Compact Array and a baseband recorder system, made simultaneously at two frequencies, 1300 and 1470 MHz. These
A LARGE-AREA SURVEY FOR RADIO PULSARS AT HIGH GALACTIC LATITUDES
We have completed a survey for pulsars at high Galactic latitudes with the 64 m Parkes radio telescope. Observing with the 13 beam multibeam receiver at a frequency of 1374 MHz, we covered ∼4150
The Swinburne intermediate-latitude pulsar survey
We have conducted a survey of intermediate Galactic latitudes using the 13-beam 21-cm multibeam receiver of the Parkes 64-m radio telescope. The survey covered the region enclosed by 5°<|b|<15° and
Submillijansky Transients in Archival Radio Observations
We report the results of a 944 epoch survey for transient sources with archival data from the Very Large Array spanning 22 years with a typical epoch separation of 7 days. Observations were obtained
