Polyco Files

Polyco (Polynomial Coefficients) files are used in pulsar timing. They consist of a simple polynomial model of the pulsar period variation between as series given timestamps. This can be generated by software such as tempo or tempo2, and can then be used to time a pulsar without solving complex equations.
