An empirical model for the polarization of pulsar radio emission

Abstract:

We present an empirical model for single pulses of radio emission from pulsars based on gaussian probability distributions for relevant variables. The radiation at a specific pulse phase is represented as the superposition of radiation in two (approximately) orthogonally polarized modes (OPMs) from one or more subsources in the emission region of the pulsar. For each subsource, the polarization states are drawn randomly from statistical distributions, with the mean and the variance on the Poi...
