Brief description

This proposal aims to extend our survey observations of the Magellanic Clouds already reported by (Ridley et al.~2013) which are primarily motivated by the promise of probing their millisecond pulsar population. From observations of the Large Magellanic Cloud so far, which cover about 20\% of its spatial extent, we have discovered and obtained preliminary timing solutions for 8 normal pulsars. In this coming semester, we wish to complete the timing of these pulsars, and bring the survey coverage to 50\%. Based on our results so far, we
anticipate the discovery of around 10 new normal pulsars and possibly a few millisecond pulsars. For the first time, we would be able to definitively probe the relative populations of normal and millisecond pulsars in an external galaxy which has a significantly different star formation history to the Milky Way. These observations pave the way for future surveys of the Magellanic Clouds with MeerKAT.
