    Abstract: Detailed long-term timing observations have revealed that the expected smooth spin- down of many pulsars is prone to a variety of discrete disruptions often referred to as glitches. Although the nature and behaviour of small glitches are still poorly understood compared to large glitches, it is widely believed that both originate from some complex ... Show More
