This thesis describes the planning, observations and analysis of
a pulsar proper motion survey carried out with the Parkes-Tidbinbilla Interferometer
from September 1986 until November 1988. It describes the
interpretation of the results, and a self-consistent model of pulsar and massive
binary system evolution.
We have determined the proper motions of 6 radio pulsars. The
accuracy of our measurements is high, and the derived proper motion between
two reference sources of 0.5 ± 1 mas...[Show more]
