Thanks to the successful operations of Fermi-LAT and MAGIC telescopes,
the emission mechanism of gamma-ray pulsars has been getting clearer
in the last 10 years. The number of detecter pulsars has increased
from less than 10 to more than 200, and those emission can be
basically explained as the Curvature radiation from the Outer Gap. On
the other hand, new problems have also been found. For example, very
high energy emission from the Crab pulsar could not be explained by
the Curvature radiation. In this seminar, I will talk about the basic
models of gamma-ray pulsar and observational and theoretical progress
in the last 10 years, together with the future prospect of CTA
