1 Review
Since their discovery in 1967, pulsars have assumed a central role in astronomy and astrophysics, offering an opportunity to explore theoretical physics under extreme conditions. Pulsar Astronomy provides an ideal introductory account for those entering the field, and an invaluable reference for established researchers. Now thoroughly revised for its third edition, it covers research over wavelengths ranging from radio through optical and x-ray to gamma-rays. Topics range from the physics of neutron star interiors to the astrophysics of binary stars and the recent tests of general relativity. It is supported by extensive references and a complete catalogue of all known pulsars.
