Each of the two pulsars in the double pulsar PSR J0737-3039A/B system exhibits not only the pulses emanating from itself, but also displays modulations near the pulse period of the other. Freire et al. (2009, MNRAS, 396, 1764) have put forward a technique using the modulation of B by A to determine the sense of rotation of pulsar A relative to its orbital motion, among other quantities. In this paper, we present another technique with the same purpose. While the Freire et al. approach analyzes… 
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 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
A Real-time, Pipelined Incoherent Dedispersion Method and Implementation in FPGA
TLDR
A Real-Time, Pipelined Incoherent Dedispersion Method (RT-PIDM), which dedisperses the pulsar signal in real time and achieves the same result as compared to traditional incoherent dedispersion.

A new technique for timing the double pulsar system
In 2004, McLaughlin et al. discovered a phenomenon in the radio emission of PSR J0737-3039B (B) that resembles drifting subpulses. The repeat rate of the subpulses is equal to the spin frequency of
The Double Pulsar System J0737–3039: Modulation of the Radio Emission from B by Radiation from A
We have analyzed single pulses from PSR J0737-3039B, the 2.8 s pulsar in the recently discovered double pulsar system, using data taken with the Green Bank Telescope at 820 and 1400 MHz. We report
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
TOPICAL REVIEW: The double pulsar system: a unique laboratory for gravity
The PSR J0737–3039 is a double neutron star system in which both stars are detectable as active radio pulsars. The pair, consisting of an old, mildly recycled 23-ms pulsar and a young 2.8-s pulsar,
SPIN TILTS IN THE DOUBLE PULSAR REVEAL SUPERNOVA SPIN ANGULAR-MOMENTUM PRODUCTION
The system PSR J0737−3039 is the only binary pulsar known to consist of two radio pulsars (PSR J0737−3039 A and PSR J0737−3039 B). This unique configuration allows measurements of spin orientation
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 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
The double pulsar.
A new era in fundamental physics began with the discovery of pulsars 1967, the discovery of the first binary pulsar in 1974 and the first millisecond pulsar in 1982. Ever since, pulsars have been
Tests of General Relativity from Timing the Double Pulsar
TLDR
By measuring relativistic corrections to the Keplerian description of the orbital motion, it is found that the “post-Keplerian” parameter s agrees with the value predicted by general relativity within an uncertainty of 0.05%, the most precise test yet obtained.
THE DOUBLE PULSAR: EVIDENCE FOR NEUTRON STAR FORMATION WITHOUT AN IRON CORE-COLLAPSE SUPERNOVA
The double pulsar system PSR J0737−3039A/B is a double neutron star binary, with a 2.4 hr orbital period, which has allowed measurement of relativistic orbital perturbations to high precision. The
