Timing noise


Random wanderings of arrivals times indicate jitter in the pulsar rotation
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Maybe micro glitches
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Times scales from months to years
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Timing noise correlates with spin down rate
tex2html_wrap_inline3922   Young pulsar generally show more timing noise
