Three New Pulsars



PULSAR surveys carried out at the Molonglo Radio Observatory during February and March, 1969, have resulted in the discovery of three new pulsars. They have been designated MP 0450, MP 1642 and MP 1818. The last two were found in areas of the sky which had not previously been searched for pulsars using the Molonglo radio telescope. The position of MP 0450, however, had been searched twice before during the pulsar survey programme, but the pulsar was not detected presumably because of long term variations of its pulse amplitude.
