In the following discussion we consider a suite of increasingly more realistic physical models for the baryonic component.
Entropy Evolution in Galaxy Groups and Clusters; A Comparison of External and Internal Heating
The next section provides the definitions of our coined quantum walks on trees and of their random version, followed by a description of the spectral criteria suited to the present framework.
Spectral Transition for Random Quantum Walks on Trees
It follows that a network sub ject to some sort of optimising mechanism, such as Natural Selection for the case of living systems, could thus evolve towards whichever topology best suits its requirements by tuning these microscopic actions.
Interplay between Network Topology and Dynamics in Neural Systems
The OA of GRB 030725 was discovered at a private, non-professional observatory and we point out that with the current suite of gamma ray satellites, an effort to organize future contributions of amateur observers may provide substantial help in GRB light curve follow up efforts.
The red optical afterglow of GRB 030725
We will now quickly develop the BSW formalism, which is more suited to accommodate our principles, and, following the spirit of Wheeler, henceforth shift our attention to the dynamics in superspace per se, using the DeWitt supermetric to lower and raise indices.
Huygens-Fresnel Principle in Superspace
They are thus well suited for follow-up observations of the afterglows of triggered GRBs.
The Status of VHE Gamma-Ray Astronomy
For stardust from SN we follow the procedure of Dwek (1998) and use a simple parameterization for the dust production rate since no suited other information on dust production is available.
Evolution of interstellar dust and stardust in the solar neighbourhood
Here we develop another formalism, which is better suited to cases such as reheating with extended sources or continuous media in an expanding universe, and which allows us to follow the evolution of gravity waves with time.
Theory and Numerics of Gravitational Waves from Preheating after Inflation
We identified the following work in the domain of test suite reverse engineering.
