The first known pulsar glitch was discovered in the Vela pulsar at both Parkes and Goldstone in March 1969. Since then the number of known glitches has grown enormously, with more than 520 glitches now known in more than 180 pulsars. Details of glitch parameters and post-glitch recoveries are described and some implications for the physics of neutron stars are discussed.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific 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 researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
