Abstract: AbstractThe nearest millisecond pulsar PSR J0437–4715 is the ideal target to constrain the dense matter equation of state using the lightcurve modelling method. Our analysis combining XMM-Newton, NuSTAR, and ROSAT observations removed ambiguities in the spectral modelling of the surface emission from PSR J0437–4715. Furthermore, the NuSTAR observation demonstrated that the non-thermal hard tail emission was pulsed at the pulsar spin period. These features are crucial to model the lightcurve and to measure the …
