Parkes observations for project P511 semester 2010APRS
We request continuing timing observations of eight rotating radio transients. Since the last observing semester, we have achieved phase-connected solutions for additional sources and published three papers which make use of the Parkes data from this program. The observations proposed here are crucial to obtain new solutions and search for timing ab... morenormalities and changes in pulse rates or properties. In addition to providing improved positions for follow-up at other wavelengths, the observations are being used for studies of spectra, variability, and pulse shapes. These observations are the cornerstone of an extensive campaign at X-ray, radio and infrared wavelengths. less

P511 - Further Investigations into a New Class of Radio Transients
Neutron stars are of interest to a broad range of astronomers and physicists. They can be used to probe equations of state of superdense matter, to study plasma and particle physics, and to test theories of general relativity and even cosmology. We have found an entirely new class of these objects which are radio emitters for less than 1 second a d... moreay! Understanding how these objects emit is very important for neutron star astrophysics and has huge implications for the total number of such stars in our Galaxy. We expect many more of these objects to be found by large field of view instruments such as LOFAR and the SKA. less
