Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pulsar glitches are thought to be one of the most spectacular large-scale astronomical manifestations of superfluidity on a microscopic scale. Although they were first observed shortly after the discovery of pulsars, the exact details of the physical processes driving these phenomena are still not known in detail. Nevertheless, much recent progress has been made, both in terms of observations and theoretical modeling. This Special Issue aims to collect the most recent highlights.
