Abstract:Fifty years of pulsars also mean fifty years of using them as tools to probe other phenomena and physics. One prominent example is the usage of pulsars to test theories of gravity. Probing the quasi-stationary strong-field regime, pulsars allow high precision tests that will maintain their importance even in the era of gravitation wave observations with ground-based detectors. This contribution summarise the methods and status of the field and provides a brief outlook into the future.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
