Using Animated Textures to Visualize Electromagnetic Fields and Energy Flow

Kavli Affiliate: John Belcher | First 5 Authors: John Belcher, Carolann Koleci, , , | Summary: Animated textures can be used to visualize the spatial structure and temporal evolution of vector fields at high spatial resolution. The animation requires two time-dependent vector fields. The first of these vector fields determines the spatial structure to be […]

A spectral Galerkin method for the coupled Orr-Sommerfeld and induction equations for free-surface MHD

Kavli Affiliate: Robert Rosner | First 5 Authors: Dimitrios Giannakis, Paul F. Fischer, Robert Rosner, , | Summary: We develop and test spectral Galerkin schemes to solve the coupled Orr-Sommerfeld (OS) and induction equations for parallel, incompressible MHD in free-surface and fixed-boundary geometries. The schemes’ discrete bases consist of Legendre internal shape functions, supplemented with […]

Multiple Component Analysis of Time Resolved Spectra of GRB041006: A Clue to the Nature of Underlying Soft Component of GRBs

Kavli Affiliate: Gregory Prigozhin | First 5 Authors: Yuji Shirasaki, Atsumasa Yoshida, Nobuyuki Kawai, Toru Tamagawa, Takanori Sakamoto | Summary: GRB 041006 was detected by HETE-2 at 12:18:08 UT on 06 October 2004. This GRB displays a soft X-ray emission, a precursor before the onset of the main event, and also a soft X-ray tail […]
