Title: RAPID SPINDOWN OF SGR 900+14 FOLLOWING ITS SUPERBURST

SGR 1900+14 had a brief episode of exceedingly rapid spindown immediately following its 1998 Aug. 27 superburst. On a timescale of hours, it increased its period by a part in 10{sup 4}. The corresponding P {approximately} 10{sup {minus}8} is orders of magnitude higher than the typical quiescent rate of P {approximately} 6 x 10{sup {minus}11}.
