|Session Chair:||Justin Jonas|
Fast radio transient sources, including pulsars, are excellent laboratories for studying fundamental physics, such as General Relativity, and high-energy astrophysics. Current and planned surveys to detect and study these objects provide severe challenges for the telescopes and associated instrumentation (including SKA) because of the extreme data rates requiring on-line processing. This session will highlight the scientific goals of high-speed time-domain radio astronomy, and introduce the associated technical challenges and proposed solutions.
