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 ...
Simulation and Optimization of ESA Designs for Space Plasma Missions
A novel electrostatic analyzer (ESA) simulation method that differs significantly from traditional methods is presented in this study, the "reverse-fly" simulation method. The simulation process and its applications are ...
The effects of intrinsic spectral curvature and flux limits on the measured evolutionary behavior of BL Lacertæ objects
The effects of modeling the intrinsic curvature of the spectral energy distributions of BL Lacertae objects in the soft x-ray on the V/V M evolutionary statistic were studied. It was found that the power law approximations ...
Three-dimensional simulations of magnetic fields in the solar atmosphere: Preparing for STEREO data analysis
We present the results of a new approach to simulating coronal magnetic fields without the constraints inherent to most modeling techniques. Magnetic fields are central to the structure and dynamics of the solar corona, ...
