General Relativistic Influence on Observed Pulsar Frequencies if Pulsars are Orbiting Objects

  • Banesh Hoffmann


Recently 1, I pointed out that pulsars might be a means of making a new test of the general theory of relativity by providing a stable extra-terrestrial frequency standard against which the differential general relativistic effect on terrestrial clock rates at perihelion and aphelion could be measured.
