New York Conference on Pulsars

Abstract

Not long ago it was the quasar, and now it is the pulsar, the radio properties of which burst on us without any corresponding optical information. At this conference there was a wealth of information about the structure of the radio pulses, many ideas on their generation, on the scintillation phenomena which so evidently modulate their strength, and on the nature of the accurate periodicity of the pulses, but there was still very little about the possible identification of any of the four known pulsars with visible objects.
