### An investigation of the absolute circular polarization in radio pulsars

Abstract:

In most pulsars, the circularly polarized component, Stokes $V$, is weak in the average pulse profiles. By forming the average profile of $|V|$ from single pulses we can distinguish between pulsars where $V$ is weak in the individual pulses and those where large $V$ of variable handedness is observed from one pulse to the other. We show how $|V|$ profiles depend on the signal-to-noise ratio of $V$ in the single pulses and demonstrate that it is possible to simulate the observed, broad distrib...
