Abstract


The timing of radio pulsars provides a tool for studying a wide range of fundamental physical and astrophysical problems. The best results are obtained by regular, frequent timing observations of a large number of sources at various frequencies. We describe a project which aims to improve on all of the above parameters by combining timing data from the pulsar timing programs of 4 European groups to form the so-called EPTA. These data will be used to study, amongst other things, relativistic binaries and gravitational waves.
