Abstract

Dense stellar systems such as globular clusters are known to produce many more millisecond pulsars per mass than galaxies. We have begun investigations, theoretically, into the formation and evolution of binary pulsars, and in particular millisecond pulsars. We present preliminary results of eight simulations with the aim of highlighting some interesting comparisons to observations which we are now able to make.
