    Abstract: Neutron star glitches; spanning a period of 42 years of pulsar timing were studied. These glitches are from Radio, X-ray, Anomalous X-ray and Milliseconds Pulsars. Radio Pulsars dominates the glitch events, contributing 87% of the glitches. Pulsars of characteristic age bracket 103 to 105 yrs dominated the glitch events, at a rate of 5.2 glitches p... Show More

    Abstract: It is shown that the adoption of the hypothesis that the electromagnetic component of physical vacuum, the vacuum of quantum electrodynamics (QED vacuum), undergoes polarization in the vicinity of elementary particles allows us to comprehend, on the phenomenological level, the physical essence of the basic hypotheses of the special theory of relati...
