Abstract

A pulsar wind nebula inside a supernova remnant offers a unique insight into the properties of neutron stars, pulsar winds, and the progenitor supernova. However, this is complicated by the rapid and complicated evolution such a pulsar wind nebulae undergoes. In this talk, I will present a model for the dynamical and radiative evolution of a pulsar wind nebulae inside a remnant which can extract the desired information from observations, and demonstrate its success in reproducing the total radio to X-ray spectrum of the Crab Nebula.
