G.; Rosolowsky, Erik; Herczeg, Gregory J.; Sauer, Daniel N.; Mazzali, Paolo A.
    Recent observations have revealed that some Type Ia supernovae exhibit narrow, time-variable Na I D absorption features. The origin of the absorbing material is controversial, but it may suggest the presence of circumstellar ...
  • Variance Reduction For A Discrete Velocity Gas 

    Morris, A. B.; Varghese, P. L.; Goldstein, D. B. (2015-04-16)
    We extend a variance reduction technique developed by Baker and Hadjiconstantinou [1] to a discrete velocity gas. In our previous work, the collision integral was evaluated by importance sampling of collision partners [2]. ...

  • Verification of Identifications of Cyprinid Specimens from the Colorado River Basin, Texas 

    Cohen, Adam E.; Hendrickson, Dean A.; Martin, F. Douglas (2014-06-05)
    Numerous published reports indicate that records of occurrence of Sharpnose Shiner, Notropis oxyrhynchus, in the Colorado River basin of Texas are the result of an introduction, though the species is clearly native in the ...
  • Versatility and Stereotypy of Free-Tailed Bat Songs 

    Bohn, Kirsten M.; Schmidt-French, Barbara; Schwartz, Christine; Smotherman, Michael; Pollak, George D. (Public Library of Science, 2013-06-27)
    In mammals, complex songs are uncommon and few studies have examined song composition or the order of elements in songs, particularly with respect to regional and individual variation. In this study we examine how syllables ...
  • Very Bright Green Fluorescent Proteins from the Pontellid Copepod Pontella mimocerami 

    Hunt, Marguerite E.; Scherrer, Michael P.; Ferrari, Frank D.; Matz, Mikhail V. (Public Library of Science, 2013-05-06)
    Background -- Fluorescent proteins (FP) homologous to the green fluorescent protein (GFP) from the jellyfish Aequorea victoria have revolutionized biomedical research due to their usefulness as genetically encoded fluorescent ...

    Supernova (SN) 2009ig was discovered 17 hr after explosion by the Lick Observatory Supernova Search, promptly classified as a normal Type Ia SN (SN Ia), peaked at V = 13.5 mag, and was equatorial, making it one of the ...
  • Very Large Array Limits For Intermediate-Mass Black Holes In Three Globular Clusters 

    Bash, F. N.; Gebhardt, K.; Goss, W. M.; Bout, P. A. V.
    The observational evidence for central black holes in globular clusters has been argued extensively, and their existence has important consequences for both the formation and evolution of the cluster. Most of the evidence ...
