Highlights of Recent Binary Pulsar Observations at Arecibo

David Nice



I will describe some recent results of binary and millisecond pulsar observations with the Arecibo radio telescope. Topics to be described include (1) the surprisingly high mass (2.1+-0.2 solar masses) of PSR J0751+1807 and a possible inverse correlation between pulsar mass and orbital period, (2) the surprisingly low proper motion of the Hulse-Taylor binary PSR B1913+16, and (3) first results from the PALFA survey, a deep pulsar search along the Galactic plane.
