Title: Pulsar Astronomy with GLAST

Despite their name, the rotation powered neutron stars called 'radio pulsars' are actually most luminous in the hard x-ray and gamma-ray bands. GLAST will be the first high-energy satellite with suffimore »cient sensitivity to detect and study large numbers of these pulsars. I will review GLAST's key science goals in pulsar astrophysics and summarize the extraordinary advances in low-energy pulsar surveys since the days of CGRO.« less
