Discovery of a High-Latitude Accreting Millisecond Pulsar in an Ultracompact Binary

Kavli Affiliate: Edward Morgan | First 5 Authors: Duncan Galloway, Deepto Chakrabarty, Edward Morgan, Ronald Remillard, | Summary: We have identified the third known accretion-powered millisecond pulsar, XTE J0929-314, with the Rossi X-Ray Timing Explorer. The source is a faint, high-Galactic-latitude X-ray transient (d >~ 5 kpc) that was in outburst during 2002 April-June. The […]

Coupled Two-Way Clustering Analysis of Breast Cancer and Colon Cancer Gene Expression Data

Kavli Affiliate: Robert Wood | First 5 Authors: Gad Getz, Hilah Gal, Itai Kela, Eytan Domany, Dan A. Notterman | Summary: We present and review Coupled Two Way Clustering, a method designed to mine gene expression data. The method identifies submatrices of the total expression matrix, whose clustering analysis reveals partitions of samples (and genes) […]

An Untriggered Search for Optical Bursts

Kavli Affiliate: Stuart Marshall | First 5 Authors: Robert Kehoe, Carl Akerlof, Richard Balsano, Jeff Bloch, Don Casperson | Summary: We present an untriggered search for optical bursts with the ROTSE-I telephoto array. Observations were taken which monitor an effective 256 square degree field continuously over 125 hours to m_{ROTSE}=15.7. The uniquely large field, moderate […]

Self-induced transparency and giant nonlinearity in doped photonic crystals

Kavli Affiliate: Miriam Blaauboer | First 5 Authors: Gershon Kurizki, David Petrosyan, Tomas Opatrny, Miriam Blaauboer, Boris Malomed | Summary: Photonic crystals doped with resonant atoms allow for uniquely advantageous nonlinear modes of optical propagation: (a) Self-induced transparency (SIT) solitons and multi-dimensional localized "bullets" propagating at photonic band gap frequencies. These modes can exist even […]

Discovery of Soft X-Ray Emission from Io, Europa and the Io Plasma Torus

Kavli Affiliate: Peter G. Ford | First 5 Authors: Ronald F. Elsner, G. Randall Gladstone, J. Hunter Waite, Frank J. Crary, Robert R. Howell | Summary: We report the discovery of soft (0.25–2 keV) x-ray emission from the Galilean satellites Io and Europa, probably Ganymede, and from the Io Plasma Torus (IPT). Bombardment by energetic […]

Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology: Cosmic Laboratories for New Physics (Summary of the Snowmass 2001 P4 Working Group)

Kavli Affiliate: Daniel S. Akerib | First 5 Authors: Daniel S. Akerib, Sean M. Carroll, Marc Kamionkowski, Steven Ritz, | Summary: The past few years have seen dramatic breakthroughs and spectacular and puzzling discoveries in astrophysics and cosmology. In many cases, the new observations can only be explained with the introduction of new fundamental physics. […]
