Parkes observations for project P574 semester 2016OCTS_BPSR_01
We request time to observe 260 pulsars on a regular basis in order to provide the accurate ephemerides necessary for the detection and characterisation of gamma-ray pulsars with the Fermi satellite. The main science goals are to increase the number of known gamma-ray pulsars (both radio loud and radio quiet), to determine accurate pulse profiles, a... morend to characterise their high energy (phase-resolved) spectra. In the radio, the observations will also allow us to find glitches, characterise timing noise, investigate dispersion and rotation measure variability, and enhance our knowledge of single pulse phenomenology. To date, we
are (co-)authors on 50 papers arising from the collaboration and P574 data. The data have contributed to the PhD theses of students from the Bordeaux group and Stanford and are remain in active use (detailed within). less

P574 - Pulsar timing and the GLAST mission
NASA are launching a new gamma-ray satellite in October 2007. It aims to detect several hundred pulsars (only 5 are known today) but it needs radio telescopes to tell them when the pulse from each pulsar arrives. The Parkes telescope will perform this task and, at the same time, extract lots of other pulsar science from the ensuing database.
