    A parallel exists in the gravity wave searches: most of them search for the initial “flash”; however, continuous radiation from the neutron star remnant is also predicted, and a search from the most promising candidate, the Crab pulsar, is planned by Hirakawa and his associates.See this volume.Google Scholar

    The extended remnants are sometimes detectable at optical and X-ray wavelengths (although synchrotron emission is not usually responsible). However, it is the radio emission that is most reliably detectable to uniformly low limits, unhindered by obscuration or absorption in the Galaxy, and thus the study of radio remnants potentially yields the best information on galactic supernova statistics.Google Scholar

    For statistical analyses, the differential number counts are used (as in the case of supernova remnants) but the corresponding cumulative number counts indicate more clearly the basic argument.Google Scholar
