Optimal interpolation and prediction in pulsar timing
MetadataShow full item record
For pulsar projects it is often necessary to predict the pulse phase in advance, for example when preparing for new observations. Interpolation of the pulse phase between existing measurements is also often required, for example when folding X-ray or gamma-ray observations according to the radio pulse phase. Until now these procedures have been done using various ad hoc methods. The purpose of this paper is to show how to interpolate or predict the pulse phase optimally using statistical models of the various noise processes and the phase measurement uncertainty.

Knight, H.; Bailes, M.; Manchester, R.; Ord, Stephen; Jacoby, B. (2006)We have conducted a search for giant pulses from four millisecond pulsars using the 100 m Green Bank Telescope. Coherently dedispersed time series from PSR J0218+4232 were found to contain giant pulses of very short ...
Pulse intensity modulation and the timing stability of millisecond pulsars: A case study of PSR J1713+0747Shannon, Ryan; Cordes, J. (2012)Most millisecond pulsars, like essentially all other radio pulsars, show timing errors well in excess of what is expected from additive radiometer noise alone. We show that changes in amplitude, shape, and pulse phase for ...
