A Flood of Exotic Globular Cluster Pulsar Discoveries

In the past five years, the number of known globular clusterpulsars, most of them of the millisecond variety, has nearly doubled, to atotal of over 300. The main reasons were the commissioning of theextremely sensitive FAST and MeerKAT radio telescopes, and increasedcomputing power applied to the searches themselves. In this talk I’llmention some of the fascinating exotic systems that have been found, anddiscuss the importance of long-term timing of these systems. Inparticular, timing observations can provide extremely constraining massmeasurements for some potentially very massive neutron stars. Thesepulsars strongly constrain the equation of state of neutron star matter
