Core and crust contributions in overshooting glitches: the Vela pulsar 2016 glitch

14 Mar 2020 Pizzochero Pierre Montoli Alessandro Antonelli Marco

During the spin-up phase of a large pulsar glitch - a sudden decrease of the rotational period of a neutron star - the angular velocity of the star may overshoot, namely reach values greater than that observed for the new post-glitch equilibrium. These transient phenomena are expected on the basis of theoretical models for pulsar internal dynamics and their observation has the potential to provide an important diagnostic for glitch modelling...
