1 | Pulsar astronomers usually define the luminosity , where is the mean flux density at (a standard observing frequency) and is the distance derived from the DM (see Section 2.4). Since this ignores any assumptions about beaming or geometrical factors, it is sometimes referred to as a “pseudoluminosity” [8]. | |

2 | The likely DNS binary J17562251 [93] has a merger time of and will make a small contribution to the rate. It has so far not been incorporated into the latest calculations. | |

3 | It is likely, however, that a more detailed statistical analysis of the data are required to confirm or refute this result [82]. |
