Radio pulsars

Lebedev Physical Institute, Russian Academy of Sciences, Leninsky prosp. 53, Moscow, 119991, Russian Federation

Recent theoretical work concerning the magnetosphere of and radio emission from pulsars is reviewed in detail. Taking into account years of little or no cooperation between theory and observation and noting, in particular, that no systematic observations are in fact being made to check theoretical predictions, the key ideas underlying the theory of the pulsar magnetosphere are formulated and new observations aimed at verifying current models are discussed.
