Astronomical Soc./Pacific


282 pages



Astronomical Society of the Pacific Conference Series; v.466


Reflecting the conference sessions, the 73 papers discuss across the spectrum; radio observations of pulsars; the theory of pulsar radio emission; the structure, evolution, magnetic fields, and pulsar wind nebulae of neutron stars; observations and theory of magnetars; and from past to future. Among specific topics are the decomposition of the optical polarization components of the Crab pulsar and its nebula, the analysis of single pulses from radio pulsars at high observing frequencies, the population synthesis of normal radio and gamma-ray pulsars using Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques, symmetry energy effects in the neutron star properties, and radio timing observations of four gamma-ray pulsars at Nanshan. There is no subject index.
