The rotational history of the neutron star underlying a radio pulsar can be tracked by performing repeated observations of the time of arrival of its pulses, via a procedure called “pulsar timing”. This presentation introduces the basics of this kind of experiments, and their applicability in the aim of enhancing the sensitivity of the GW detectors to a sample of continuous GW sources.
