  1. 1. X-ray variability in Galactic high-mass black hole binaries

    Author : Magnus Axelsson; Stefan Larsson; Chris Done; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Accretion; high-energy astrophysics; temporal variability; X-ray binaries; Astronomy and astrophysics; Astronomi och astrofysik; Astronomy; astronomi;

    Abstract : The stars of the night sky can to the naked eye appear to be steady and unchanging, apart from the twinkling created by air moving in the atmosphere. However, when viewed in X-rays, the sky is far from constant, with detectable changes occurring on very short timescales.Black hole X-ray binaries are strong sources of X-rays. READ MORE

  2. 2. Parametric Model for Astrophysical Proton-Proton Interactions and Applications

    Author : Niklas Karlsson; Per Carlson; Simon Swordy; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; astrophysics; gamma rays; proton-proton interactions; cosmic rays; Astronomy and astrophysics; Astronomi och astrofysik;

    Abstract : Observations of gamma-rays have been made from celestial sources such as active galaxies, gamma-ray bursts and supernova remnants as well as the Galactic ridge. The study of gamma rays can provide information about production mechanisms and cosmic-ray acceleration. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cosmic rays and shock physics in gamma-ray bursts

    Author : Filip Samuelsson; Felix Ryde; Robert Mochkovitch; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; astrophysics; gamma-ray bursts; cosmic rays; radiation-mediated shocks; Atomic; Subatomic and Astrophysics; Atomär fysik; subatomär fysik och astrofysik;

    Abstract : Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the most luminous events in the known universe. Due to their tremendous energy output, they serve as laboratories of physics far beyond anything that we can hope to achieve in terrestrial experiments. READ MORE

  4. 4. Multi-messenger emission from gamma-ray bursts

    Author : Filip Samuelsson; Felix Ryde; Peter Mészáros; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; astrophysics; gamma-ray bursts; cosmic rays; Atomic; Subatomic and Astrophysics; Atomär fysik; subatomär fysik och astrofysik;

    Abstract : Multi-messenger astronomy is a very hot topic in the astrophysical community. A messenger is something that carries information. Different astrophysical messenger types are photons, cosmic rays, neutrinos, and gravitational waves. They all carry unique and complementary information to one another. READ MORE

  5. 5. Laboratory and stellar spectroscopy of the complex ions Fe+, Mo+, Th+ and U+

    Abstract : The new generation of high resolution astronomical instruments such as the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) or the Very Large Telescope (VLT) has renewed the demand for accurate atomic parameters like wavelengths, oscillator strengths and line profiles accompanied by reliable uncertainty estimates. Fourier transform spectroscopy has proven to be a powerful tool when measuring these parameters. READ MORE
