Article Abstract

Pulsars of very different types, including isolated objects and binaries (with short- and long-period orbits, and white-dwarf and neutron-star companions) provide the means to test both the predictions of general relativity and the viability of alternate theories of gravity. This article presents an overview of pulsars, then discusses the current status of and future prospects for tests of equivalence-principle violations and strong-field gravitational experiments.

Keywords: binary systems, white dwarfs, theories of gravity, astronomical observations, pulsars, tests of relativistic gravity, gravitational radiation, neutron stars
