Braking index jumps in young pulsars

10 Jan 2019 Horvath J. E. IAG-USP, São Paulo U., Brazil

The departure of all measured pulsar braking indexes from the "canonical" dipole value 3 has been attributed to several causes in the past. Careful monitoring of the Crab pulsar has revealed permanent changes in the spin-down rate which are most likely the accumulation of small jumps in the angle $\alpha$ between the magnetic and spin axis...
