  • General relativity is a fully conservative theory, but there exist other possible metric theories of gravity. We consider non-conservative ones with a parameterized post-Newtonian (PPN) parameter, ζ2. A non-zero ζ2 induces a self-acceleration for the center of mass of an eccentric binary pulsar system, which contributes to the second time derivative of the pulsar spin frequency, ν̈. In our work, using the method in Will (1992), we provide an improved analysis with four well-timed, carefully… CONTINUE READING
