Abstract / Description:The Major Atmospheric Gamma-ray Imaging Cerenkov Telescope (MAGIC) will be the first ground-
based Cerenkov telescope able to detect photons with E > 30 GeV. This region of the electromagnetic
spectrum, yet unexplored, is fundamental for pulsar physics since theoretical models foreseen a cut-off
in the pulsed emission at tens of GeV. In order to perform timing analysis of pulsars, accuracy below
milliseconds in the time stamp of the detected event is needed. In this work, we present the timing
system of the MAGIC telescope and the first timing analysis performed on real data.
