|Title||Single-pulse Studies of Radio Pulsars|
|Speaker||Anna Bilous, University of Virginia|
|Abstract||Studying single pulses provides valuable information about the processes in pulsar magnetosphere, giving more spatial and time resolution than the integrated pulse profiles. Historically, single pulses were divided into "normal" and "giant", although the real picture is a lot more intricate and obscure. Clearly, there are several different types of single pulse emission, however it is still unknown what is the nature or even strict definition of each type. This work aims to shed some light on different kinds of single pulses, making an attempt to constrain some emission theories and trace the possible connection between different types.|

A brief public question and answer session will follow the talk and precede the closed oral exam with the dissertation committee.
