On the Distribution of Radio Pulsars Above the Galaxy Plane
- 12 Downloads
A mechanism of pulsar accumulation over the galaxy plane, caused by deceleration in the gravitational field and stopping at a certain distance of z from the plane is proposed. For pulsars with velocities close to the average observed velocity of about 300 km/s, the consideration of kinematics of such motion estimates the age of stopped pulsars of the order of ten millions years and the average distance from the galaxy plane of about 2 kpc. The consistency in the pulsar longitude distribution at |z| = 0.45–4.5 kpc and the distribution of the formation regions of massive stars in the galaxy disk was found.
