Summary

The distribution of the phase numbers, corresponding to the arrival times of the gamma-ray photons detected by the COS-B satellite from the directions of the Crab and Vela pulsars, is analyzed by a clustering technique with the aim to detect possible microstructures in the pulsed emission. The method is found to be promising especially in view of the future gamma-ray experiments where better photon counting statistics is expected.
