  • Turner, David Gerald, 1945-; Kovtyukh, V. V.; Luck, R. E.; Berdnikov, L. N. (IOP Publishing Limited, 2013)
    The determination of pulsation mode and distance for field Cepheids is a complicated problem best resolved by a luminosity estimate. For illustration a technique based on spectroscopic luminosity discrimination is applied ...

  • Dragomir, Diana; Matthews, Jaymie M.; Eastman, Jason D.; Cameron, Chris; Howard, Andrew W.; Guenther, David B.; Kuschnig, Rainer; Moffat, Anthony F. J.; Rowe, Jason F.; Rucinski, Slavek M. (IOP Publishing Limited, 2013)
    Through photometric monitoring of the extended transit window of HD 97658b with the MOST space telescope, we have found that this exoplanet transits with an ephemeris consistent with that predicted from radial velocity ...

  • Short, C. Ian (Christopher Ian), 1965-; Campbell, Eamonn A. (2013)
    We extend the grid of non-LTE (NLTE) models presented in Paper II to explore variations in abundance pattern in two ways: (1) the adoption of the Asplund et al. (GASS10) abundances, (2) for stars of metallicity, [M/H], ...

  • Zwintz, K.; Fossati, L.; Ryabchikova, T.; Kaiser, A.; Gruberbauer, Michael; Barnes, T. G.; Baglin, A.; Chaintreuil, S. (EDP Sciences, 2013)
    Context. Pulsations in pre-main sequence stars have been discovered several times within the last years. But nearly all of these pulsators are of [delta] Scuti-type. [gamma] Doradus-type pulsation in young stars has been ...

  • Richardson, Mark L. A.; Scannapieco, Evan; Thacker, Robert John, 1970- (The American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    In the early universe, substantial relative “stream” velocities between the gas and dark matter arise due to radiation pressure and persist after recombination. To assess the impact of these velocities on high-redshift ...

  • Majaess, Daniel J.; Turner, David Gerald, 1945-; Gieren, W. (American Astronomical Society, 2013-08-01)
    The form and metallicity dependence of Spitzer mid-infrared Cepheid relations are a source of debate. Consequently, Spitzer 3.6 and 4.5 [mu]m period–magnitude and period–color diagrams were re-examined via robust routines, ...

  • Zwintz, K.; Fossati, L.; Guenther, David B.; Ryabchikova, T.; Baglin, A.; Themessl, N.; Barnes, T. G.; Matthews, J. M.; Auvergne, M.; Bohlender, D. (EDP Sciences, 2013-04)
    Context. The internal structure of pre-main-sequence (PMS) stars is poorly constrained at present. This could change significantly through high-quality asteroseismological observations of a sample of such stars. Aims. We ...

  • Golubov, O.; Just, A.; Bienayme, O.; Bland-Hawthorn, J.; Gibson, Brad K.; Grebel, E. K.; Munari, U.; Navarro, J. F.; Parker, Q.; Seabroke, G. (EDP Sciences, 2013-09)
    Context. The determination of the local standard of rest (LSR), which corresponds to the measurement of the peculiar motion of the Sun based on the derivation of the asymmetric drift of stellar populations, is still a ...

  • Carraro, G.; Turner, David Gerald, 1945-; Majaess, Daniel J.; Baume, G. (EDP Sciences, 2013-07)
    A new X-ray, UBVRI[subscript c], and JHKs study of the young cluster Westerlund 2 was undertaken to resolve discrepancies tied to the cluster’s distance. Existing spectroscopic observations for bright cluster members and ...

  • Hall, Daniel Currie; Hall, Kathleen Currie (Ubiquity Press, 2016-12-06)
    The Contrastivist Hypothesis (CH; Hall 2007; Dresher 2009) holds that the only features that can be phonologically active in any language are those that serve to distinguish phonemes, which presupposes that phonemic status ...

  • Pollmann, E; Bennett, Philip Desmond, 1952-; Hopkins, J. L. (Konkoly Observatory, 2016-01-16)
    VV Cep is an eclipsing binary with a period of about 20.4 years that is comprised of an M2Iab primary star and an early B secondary star. A preliminary orbit was announced in 1933 by Harper & Christie (1936), and McLaughlin ...

  • Sembolini, Federico; Yepes, Gustavo; Pearce, Frazer R.; Knebe, Alexander; Kay, Scott T.; Power, Chris; Cui, Weiguang; Beck, Alexander M.; Borgani, Stefano; Vecchia, Claudio Dalla; Thacker, Robert John, 1970- (Oxford University Press, 2016-04-21)
    We have simulated the formation of a galaxy cluster in a [lambda] cold dark matter universe using 13 different codes modelling only gravity and non-radiative hydrodynamics (RAMSES, ART, AREPO, HYDRA and nine incarnations ...

  • Harper, G. M.; Griffin, R. E. M.; Bennett, Philip Desmond, 1952-; O’Riain, N. (Oxford University Press, 2016-02-21)
    We examine the little-known phenomenon of orbitally modulated Si I emission at [lambda] 3905.523 [angstrom] and [lambda] 4102.936 [angstrom] in composite-spectrum binaries, with specific reference to [zeta] Aurigae (K4 Ib ...

  • Cui, Weiguang; Power, Chris; Knebe, Alexander; Kay, Scott T.; Sembolini, Federico; Elahi, Pascal J.; Yepes, Gustavo; Pearce, Frazer; Cunnama, Daniel; Beck, Alexander M.; Thacker, Robert John, 1970- (Oxford University Press, 2016-06-01)
    Building on the initial results of the nIFTy simulated galaxy cluster comparison, we compare and contrast the impact of baryonic physics with a single massive galaxy cluster, run with 11 state-of-the-art codes, spanning ...

  • Yin, Heng; Du, Yuguang; Dong, Zhongmin (Frontiers Media, 2016-04-22)
    Natural resources have been traditionally used in agriculture by humans. For example,crab and shrimp shell powder has been applied to control crop disease and improve soil fertility (Ha and Huang, 2007). On the other ...

  • Wang, Yonggang; Ren, Xifeng; Sun, Dongfa; Sun, Genlou (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-10-27)
    The origin and domestication of cultivated barley have long been under debate. A population-based resequencing and phylogenetic analysis of the single copy of RPB2 gene was used to address barley domestication, to explore ...

  • Ren, Xifeng; Wang, Jibin; Liu, Lipan; Sun, Genlou; Li, Chengdao; Luo, Hong; Sun, Dongfa (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-08-17)
    A high-density linkage map is a valuable tool for functional genomics and breeding. A newly developed sequence-based marker technology, restriction site associated DNA (RAD) sequencing, has been proven to be powerful for ...

  • Liu, Fangfang; Si, Hongqi; Wang, Chengcheng; Sun, Genlou; Zhou, Erting; Chen, Can; Ma, Chuanxi (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-08-16)
    The allohexaploid bread wheat originally derived from three closely related species with A, B and D genome. Although numerous studies were performed to elucidate its origin and phylogeny, no consensus conclusion has reached. ...

  • Todd, Angela D. K.; McClennan, William L.; Masuda, Jason Douglas, 1977- (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016)
    The reaction of trimethylaluminum with the bis-N,N[prime] -(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazolin-2-imine (L–H) ligand 1 afforded several new organometallic aluminium complexes. Reaction in a 1 : 1 stoichiometry at room temperature ...
