Description Modeling of thermal X-ray spectra and pulse profiles of radio millisecond pulsars (MSPs) may offer important insight into neutron star structure. As the nearest and brightest MSP, PSR J0437--4715 can be studied in most detail and thus provide the best constraints. Unfortunately, due to the unfavorable observing roll angle, the existing XMM-Newton timing data from this pulsar are significantly contaminated by a nearby bright AGN. We propose a better optimized and deeper XMM-Newton study of PSR J0437--4715, which could result in a major advance towards constraining the neutron star equation of state.

Mission Description The European Space Agency's (ESA) X-ray Multi-Mirror Mission (XMM-Newton) was launched by an Ariane 504 on December 10th 1999. XMM-Newton is ESA's second cornerstone of the Horizon 2000 Science Programme. It carries 3 high throughput X-ray telescopes with an unprecedented effective area, and an optical monitor, the first flown on a X-ray observatory. The large collecting area and ability to make long uninterrupted exposures provide highly sensitive observations.
Since Earth's atmosphere blocks out all X-rays, only a telescope in space can detect and study celestial X-ray sources. The XMM-Newton mission is helping scientists to solve a number of cosmic mysteries, ranging from the enigmatic black holes to the origins of the Universe itself. Observing time on XMM-Newton is being made available to the scientific community, applying for observational periods on a competitive basis.
