We retain the popular "pulsar preprints", mailing lists, and project specific the next few months we will be rolling out a number of additional sections; firstly how-to posts which give information on how to do specific pulsar related tasks such as.

"Radio pulsars are rapidly rotating, highly magnetised neutron stars. Studies of these fascinating objects have provided applications in solid-state physics, general relativity, galactic astronomy, astrometry, planetary physics and even cosmology.

Most of these applications and much of what we know about neutron stars are derived from single-dish radio observations using state-of-the-art.

A pulsar (from pulse and -ar as in quasar) is a highly magnetized rotating neutron star that emits beams of electromagnetic radiation out of its magnetic poles. This radiation can be observed only when a beam of emission is pointing toward Earth (much like the way a lighthouse can be seen only when the light is pointed in the direction of an observer), and is responsible for the pulsed.

In this book, Geoff McNamara explores the history, subsequent discovery and contemporary research into pulsar astronomy. The story of pulsars is brought right up to date with the announcement in of a new breed of pulsar, Rotating Radio Transients (RRATs), which emit short bursts of radio signals separated by long pauses.

A 3rd edition of the Handbook of Space Astronomy & Astrophysics has been published. Fully updated, enlarged (nearly double the number of pages of the Second Edition) and including data from space-based observations, this 3rd edition is a comprehensive compilation of the facts and figures relevant to astronomy and astrophysics.

PULSAR ASTRONOMY Fourth Edition Over the past 40 years, an astonishing range of astrophysics has become accessible through pulsar astronomy. The body of literature on this rapidly growing research area is vast and observational techniques now cover the whole of the electromagnetic Size: KB. The universe was many thousand times larger than the astronomers of antiquity had ever imagined.

Since the employment of modern space-travel technology and the various new instrumental possibilities, astronomy has made an enormous leap forward. The knowledge of astronomy in is probably about three times as great as it was in   The Measurement of Polarization in Radio Astronomy (T Robishaw) Spectrometers and Polyphase Filterbanks in Radio Astronomy (D C Price) Pulsar Data Acquisition Systems (D R Lorimer & M Kramer) Volume 2: UV, Optical & IR Instrumentation: Part 1: Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detectors (B A Mazin) Astronomical Filters (M Bessell & G Bloxham).A pulsar is an extra-terrestrial source of radiation that has a regular periodicity, usually detected in the form of short bursts of radio emission.

Most of the known pulsars are only visible in the radio region of the electromagnetic spectrum and are called radio pulsars, but there is a small number of pulsars that emit at optical wavelengths.
