2.7 Going further

Two excellent graduate-level monographs are available: the classic 1970s text Pulsars by Manchester & Taylor [163] and the more up-to-date Pulsar Astronomy by Lyne & Smith [156Jump To The Next Citation Point In The Article]. Those wishing to approach the subject from a more theoretical viewpoint are advised to read Michel's The Theory of Neutron Star Magnetospheres  [167Jump To The Next Citation Point In The Article] and The Physics of the Pulsar Magnetosphere by Beskin, Gurevich & Istomin [30]. Our summary of evolutionary aspects serves merely as a primer to the vast body of literature available. The reader is referred to the excellent review by Bhattacharya & van den Heuvel [31Jump To The Next Citation Point In The Article] for further insights. For an excellent overview of pulsar distance measurements and their implications, see the review by Weisberg [263].

Pulsar resources available on the Internet are continually becoming more extensive and useful. Good starting points for pulsar-surfers are the pages maintained at Arecibo [173], Berkeley [10Jump To The Next Citation Point In The Article], Bonn [165], Jodrell Bank [105], Princeton [196Jump To The Next Citation Point In The Article], Swinburne [230] and Sydney [197].
