Schwarz, which is specially transparent due to the choice of displaying the results only at a fixed point of the compact symmetric codimensional space K N (the North or South pole for SN ).
New Chern-Simons densities in both odd and even dimensions
Radial profiles along ten lateral directions from the North to South pole are shown to capture variations in λ(r) due to SASI oscillations. λ(r) is almost always larger than λMA, which decreases ∝ r−2 as expected. λ(r), which effectively traces the electron number density, falls off ∝ r−3 below the shock radius.
The Role of Collective Neutrino Flavor Oscillations in Core-Collapse Supernova Shock Revival
Because the Faraday effect is non-reciprocal (remember that it is due to a magnetic field which can be thought of as produced by a spiraling electric current), the direction of rotation around the north-south axis is independent of the light propagation direction.
Quantum Cryptography
This is most evident for the north-western section of the shell whereas there may be contributions to the southern spectrum from a thermal component, which, however, could be due to radiation from the Vela SNR.
X-rays from Supernova Remnants
There is a natural source for this energy injection and it is of sufficient amplitude: baroclinic instability caused by the north-south temperature of the lower atmosphere (ultimately due to the sun heating the tropics more than the high latitudes, making the atmosphere potentially unstable).
Recent Developments in Understanding Two-dimensional Turbulence and the Nastrom-Gage Spectrum
They are aligned very accurately, the eastern and western sides run almost due north and the southern and northern sides run almost due west.
Senenmut: An Ancient Egyptian Astronomer
Due to the influence of the GF the average WIDTH is increased for images where the connecting line between the EAS core location on ground and the telescope position is parallel to the magnetic north-south direction (telescope situated on the x-axis, full and open circle data points).

The differential phase of the observed H2O masers between W49 North (W49N) and OH 43.8-0.1 did not show a sinusoidal variation with a period of one sidereal day due to a positional offset from the real celestial positions.

In northern directions, the San Diego/Tijuana and Mexicali/Yuma (180/200 km) areas and Ensenada in the north-west produce visible glows, but due to their distance, San Pedro M´artir remains a very dark site.

In the region closer to the limb, the spatial resolution in one direction is reduced due to the pro jection effect just like in the North pole region.
Is the Polar Region Different from the Quiet Region of the Sun?
We propose that the HI gas in the LMC is pulled to the north of the LMC in the last 200 Myr due to the gravitational attraction of our Galaxy at the time of perigalactic passage.
Recent star formation history of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds
Thus the young (≤ 40 Myr) clusters seem to accumulate in the north east-north direction, except for a small group in the south-west of the bar, probably due to the presence of the bar.
Recent star formation history of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds
Thus the lopsidedness in the stellar as well as HI distribution to the north may be due to the gravitational attraction of our Galaxy on the gas of the LMC disk and the enhanced compression in the northern regions.
Recent star formation history of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds
The above center shift between 500 - 200 Myr may be due to this star formation episode and enhanced star formation in the north-eastern region.
