The dramatic increase in the number of known gamma-ray pulsars since the launch of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (formerly GLAST) offers the first opportunity to study a sizable population of these high-energy objects. This catalog summarizes 46 high-confidence pulsed detections using the first six months of data taken by the Large Area Telescope (LAT), Fermi's main instrument. Sixteen previously unknown pulsars were discovered by searching for pulsed signals at the positions of bright…

A Population of Gamma-Ray Millisecond Pulsars Seen with the Fermi Large Area Telescope

Fermi Large Area Telescope data is searched for pulsations from all known millisecond pulsars outside of stellar clusters, finding gamma-ray pulsations for eight of them, suggesting that they share the same basic emission mechanism with standard gamma-Ray pulsars.
