Tempo 0e5ec0

Tempo is a program for analyzing pulsar timing data. Pulse times of arrival (TOAs), pulsar model parameters, and coded instructions are read from one or more input files. The TOAs are fitted by a pulse timing model incorporating transformation to the solar-system barycenter, pulsar rotation and spin-down and, where necessary, one of several binary models. Program output includes parameter values and uncertainties, residual pulse arrival times, chi-squared statistics, and the covariance matrix of the model.

In prediction mode, ephemerides of pulse phase behavior (in the form of polynomial expansions) are calculated from input timing models.

Accessing the software
