Orbit configuration spaces associated to discrete subgroups of PSL(2,R)

Kavli Affiliate: Toshitake Kohno | First 5 Authors: Frederick R. Cohen, Toshitake Kohno, Miguel A. Xicotencatl, , | Summary: The purpose of this article is to analyze several Lie algebras associated to "orbit configuration spaces" obtained from a group G acting freely, and properly discontinuously on the upper 1/2-plane H^2. The Lie algebra obtained from […]

Towards Gravitational Wave Signals from Realistic Core Collapse Supernova Models

Kavli Affiliate: David H. Shoemaker | First 5 Authors: Ewald Mueller, Markus Rampp, Robert Buras, H. -Thomas Janka, David H. Shoemaker | Summary: We have computed the gravitational wave signal from supernova core collapse using the presently most realistic input physics available. We start from state-of-the-art progenitor models of rotating and non-rotating massive stars, and […]

Effects of sub-mm and radio point sources on the recovery of Sunyaev-Zeldovich galaxy cluster parameters

Kavli Affiliate: Sarah Church | First 5 Authors: Lloyd Knox, Gil Holder, Sarah Church, , | Summary: Observations of clusters in the 30 to 350 GHz range can in principle be used to determine a galaxy cluster’s Comptonization parameter, y, peculiar velocity, v and gas temperature, T_e via the dependence of the kinetic and thermal […]

Effects of electrical charging on the mechanical Q of a fused silica disk

Kavli Affiliate: David H. Shoemaker | First 5 Authors: Michael J. Mortonson, Christophoros C. Vassiliou, David J. Ottaway, David H. Shoemaker, Gregory M. Harry | Summary: We report on the effects of an electrical charge on mechanical loss of a fused silica disk. A degradation of Q was seen that correlated with charge on the […]

Simple singularities and integrable hierarchies

Kavli Affiliate: Todor E. Milanov | First 5 Authors: Alexander B. Givental, Todor E. Milanov, , , | Summary: The paper math.AG/0108100 gives a construction of the total descendent potential corresponding to a semisimple Frobenius manifold. In math.AG/0209205, it is proved that the total descendent potential corresponding to K. Saito’s Frobenius structure on the parameter […]
