Currently three isolated radio pulsars and one binary radio pulsar with no evidence of any previous recycling are known in 97 surveyed Galactic globular clusters (GCs). As pointed out by Lyne et al., the presence of these pulsars cannot be explained by core-collapse supernovae, as commonly assumed for their counterparts in the Galactic disk. We apply a Bayesian analysis to the results from surveys for radio pulsars in GCs and find the number of potentially observable non-recycled radio pulsars…

On the disruption of pulsar and x-ray binaries in globular clusters
The stellar encounter rate has been shown to be strongly correlated with the number of X-ray binaries in clusters and also to the number of radio pulsars. However, the pulsar populations in di erent
Constraining the luminosity function parameters and population size of radio pulsars in globular clusters
The luminosity distribution of Galactic radio pulsars is believed to be log-normal in form. Applying this functional form to populations of pulsars in globular clusters, we employ Bayesian methods to

Abstract Among the current sample of over 2000 radio pulsars known primarily in the disk of our Galaxy, millisecond pulsars now number almost 200. Due to the phenomenal success of blind surveys of
Searching for pulsars in globular clusters with the MeerKAT Radio Telescope
Globular clusters are known to host an unusually large population of millisecond pulsar when compared to the Galactic disk. This is thanks to the high rate of dynamical encounters occurring in the
THE TIMING OF NINE GLOBULAR CLUSTER PULSARS
We have used the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope to time nine previously known pulsars without published timing solutions in the globular clusters (GCs) M62, NGC 6544, and NGC 6624. We have full
Dynamical Formation Channels for Fast Radio Bursts in Globular Clusters
The repeating fast radio burst (FRB) localized to a globular cluster (GC) in M81 challenges our understanding of FRB models. In this Letter, we explore dynamical formation scenarios for objects in
A Population of Non-recycled Pulsars Originating in Globular Clusters
We explore the enigmatic population of long-period, apparently non-recycled pulsars in globular clusters, building on recent work by Boyles et al. This population is difficult to explain if it formed
Radio pulsar populations
Our understanding of the neutron star population is informed to a great degree by large-scale surveys that have been carried out by radio facilities during the past fifty years. We summarize some of
Eight new radio pulsars in the Large Magellanic Cloud
We present the discovery of eight new radio pulsars located in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Five of these pulsars were found from reprocessing the Parkes Multibeam Survey of the Magellanic
