2.10 Going further

In this brief review of pulsar astronomy, we have only skimmed the surface of many topics which are covered more thoroughly elsewhere. Two recent textbooks, Pulsar Astronomy [200] and Handbook of Pulsar Astronomy [185Jump To The Next Citation Point], cover the literature and techniques and provide excellent further reading. The morphological properties of pulsars have recently been comprehensively discussed in two recent reviews [286280]. Those wishing to approach the subject from a more theoretical viewpoint are advised to read The Theory of Neutron Star Magnetospheres [218Jump To The Next Citation Point] and The Physics of the Pulsar Magnetosphere [32]. Our summary of evolutionary aspects serves merely as a primer to the vast body of literature available. Further insights can be found from more detailed reviews [33Jump To The Next Citation Point251292Jump To The Next Citation Point].

Pulsar resources available on the Internet are continually becoming more extensive and useful. A good starting point for pulsar-surfers is the Handbook of Pulsar Astronomy website [186], as well as the pages maintained at Arecibo [226], Berkeley [325Jump To The Next Citation Point], Bonn [215], Cagliari [324], Jodrell Bank [326Jump To The Next Citation Point], Princeton [258Jump To The Next Citation Point], Swinburne [305Jump To The Next Citation Point], UBC [323Jump To The Next Citation Point] and Sydney [259].
