Description

Pulsar search has always been one of the most active fields. It lets astronomers to discover new phenomena, which either challenge or confirm our current knowledge. The most-successful Parkes Multibeam Pulsar Survey (PMPS) has us to discover over a third of currently known pulsars. The long-term monitoring programme for PMPS pulsars has been initiated, which now contains over 35,000 observations from 785 sources. The PMPS monitoring dataset is suitable for pulsar search because: 1) the data is recorded in search mode; 2) the 15-arcmin Parkes’ pointing provides a good coverage of the galactic plane. In addition, its timespan of over ten years is also ideal for searching for time-variability and intermittency.
