Direct Dark Matter Search with the XENON100 Experiment
Dark matter, a non-luminous, non-baryonic matter, is thought to constitute 23 % of the matter-energy components in the universe today. Except for its gravitational effects, the existence of dark matter has never been ...
Numerical Simulations of Radiative Shocked Clumps: Application to the Young Stellar Outflow HH 29
Herbig-Haro objects are the nebulous emission regions arising from shocks associated with the bipolar outflows of young stellar objects. Observations of the emission lines of HH objects can reveal properties of these stellar ...
Magnetic pair creation transparency in gamma-ray pulsars
Magnetic pair creation, Î³ [arrow right] e + e - , is a key component in polar cap models of gamma-ray pulsars, and has informed assumptions about the still poorly understood radio emission. The Fermi Gamma-Ray Space ...
Understanding the Nature of Blazars High Energy Emission with Time Dependent Multi-zone Modeling
In this thesis we present a time-dependent multi-zone radiative transfer code and its applications to study the multiwavelength emission of blazars. The multiwavelength variability of blazars is widely believed to be a ...
Evidence for Impulsive Heating of Active Region Coronal Loops
We present observational and numerical evidence supporting the theory of impulsive heating of the solar corona. We have run numerical simulations solving the hydrodynamic equations for plasma confined to a magnetic flux ...
