tex2html_wrap_inline16260 (PSR B1855+09)

Relativistic precession?

tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Finite probability that tex2html_wrap_inline16264 and tex2html_wrap_inline16266 cancel due to precession
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   If precession time << age and Galactic orbit time, deal with precession statistically and obtain upper limit
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   With several pulsars, probabilities mulitply!
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   tex2html_wrap_inline16276 - Wex 1996 (7 MSPs)
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Same as weak field limit
