Abstract

The discovery last year of a planetary system orbiting a millisecond pulsar raises important questions in pulsar evolution, planet formation, and planetary dynamics. We review the literature concerning pulsar-planetary systems, emphasizing particularly the contributions to the meetingPlanets around Pulsars held at Caltech in 1992.

Paper presented at the Conference onPlanetary Systems: Formation, Evolution, and Detection held 7–10 December, 1992 at Caltech, Pasadena, California, U.S.A.
