We report on the analysis of 13 gamma-ray pulsars discovered in the Einstein@Home blind search survey using Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) Pass 8 data. The 13 new gamma-ray pulsars were discovered by searching 118 unassociated LAT sources from the third LAT source catalog (3FGL), selected using the Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) machine learning algorithm on the basis of their gamma-ray emission properties being suggestive of pulsar magnetospheric emission. The new gamma-ray pulsars have pulse… 
Classification of New X-Ray Counterparts for Fermi Unassociated Gamma-Ray Sources Using the Swift X-Ray Telescope
Approximately one-third of the gamma-ray sources in the third Fermi-LAT catalog are unidentified or unassociated with objects at other wavelengths. Observations with Swift-XRT have yielded possible
X-ray counterpart candidates for six new γ-ray pulsars
Using archival X-ray data we have found point-like X-ray counterpart candidates positionally coincident with six $\gamma$-ray pulsars discovered recently in the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope data
Discovery of the Galactic High-mass Gamma-Ray Binary 4FGL J1405.1−6119
We report the identification from multi-wavelength observations of the Fermi Large Area Telescope (LAT) source 4FGL J1405.1-6119 (= 3FGL J1405.4-6119) as a high-mass gamma-ray binary. Observations
Population Syntheses of Millisecond Pulsars from the Galactic Disk and Bulge
We present the results of a population synthesis of radio and gamma-ray millisecond pulsars (MSPs) from the Galactic Disk (GD). Using 92 radio millisecond pulsars detected in 13 radio surveys and 54
The Galactic population and properties of young, highly energetic pulsars
The population of young, non-recycled pulsars with spin down energies Edot >10^35 erg/s is sampled predominantly at gamma-ray and radio wavelengths. A total of 137 such pulsars are known, with
Detection and Timing of Gamma-Ray Pulsations from the 707 Hz Pulsar J0952−0607
The LOFAR radio telescope discovered the $707$-Hz binary millisecond pulsar J0952$-$0607 in a targeted radio pulsation search of an unidentified $\textit{Fermi}$ gamma-ray source. This source shows a
The GMRT High-resolution Southern Sky Survey for Pulsars and Transients. II. New Discoveries, Timing, and Polarization Properties
We have been conducting the GMRT High Resolution Southern Sky (GHRSS) survey for the last four years and have discovered 18 pulsars to date. The GHRSS survey is an off-Galactic-plane survey at 322
The thousand-pulsar-array programme on MeerKAT IV: Polarization properties of young, energetic pulsars
We present observations of 35 high spin-down energy radio pulsars using the MeerKAT telescope. Polarization profiles and associated parameters are also presented. We derive the geometry for a
The Tail of PSR J0002+6216 and the Supernova Remnant CTB 1
We have carried out VLA imaging and a Fermi timing analysis of the 115 ms gamma-ray and radio pulsar PSR J0002+6216. We found that the pulsar lies at the apex of a narrowly collimated cometary-like 7
The highest energy HAWC sources are likely leptonic and powered by pulsars
The HAWC Collaboration has observed gamma rays at energies above 56 TeV from a collection of nine sources. It has been suggested that this emission could be hadronic in nature, requiring that these
