Origin of pulsar timing noise: possible correlations between pulsar spin-down rates and magnetospheric processes
(University of the Free State, 2017-03)
English: Pulsars are extremely accurate clocks that allow us to explore certain unanswered questions in the elds of exotic compact forms of matter and gravitational wave as- trophysics. Pulsars that form part of a timing ...
The identification of detectable gravitational wave signatures within the Einstein formalism for various classes of galactic sources
(University of the Free State, 2014-01)
English: A central result of this thesis is the prediction of short period (transient) GW signatures, using General Relativity. This thesis focused on various LIGO and SKA Gravitational Wave (GW) sources such as collapsing ...
