We study the effect of primordial non-Gaussianity on large-scale structure, focusing upon the most massive virialized objects. Using analytic arguments and N-body simulations, we calculate the mass function and clustering of dark matter halos across a range of redshifts and levels of non-Gaussianity. We propose a simple fitting function for the mass… (More)
Upward through-going muons in the Lake Baikal Neutrino Experiment arriving from the ecliptic plane have been analyzed using NT200 data samples of the years 1998-2002 (1007 live days). We derive upper limits on muon fluxes from annihilation processes of hypothetical WIMP dark matter particles in the center of the Sun.
Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) and GNP-based multifunctional nanocomposites are the subject of intensive studies and biomedical applications. This minireview summarizes our recent efforts in analytical and theranostic applications of engineered GNPs and nanocomposites by using plasmonic properties of GNPs and various optical techniques. Specifically, we consider… (More)
We investigate the origin of halo assembly bias, the dependence of halo clustering on assembly history. We relate halo assembly to peak properties measured in the Lagrangian space of the initial linear Gaussian random density field, and show how these same Lagrangian properties determine large-scale bias. We focus on the two regimes where assembly bias has… (More)
We present the results of a search for high energy extraterrestrial neutrinos with the Baikal underwater Cherenkov detector NT200, based on data taken in 1998-2003. Upper limits on the diffuse fluxes of ν e + ν µ + ν τ , predicted by several models of AGN-like neutrino sources, are derived. For an E −2 behavior of the neutrino
The Baikal Neutrino Telescope has been operating in its NT200 configuration since April, 1998. The telescope has been upgraded in April, 2005 to the 10 Mton scale detector NT200+. It's main physics goal is the detection of signals from high energy neutrino cascades. NT200+ reaches a 3-year sensitivity of 2 × 10 −7 cm −2 s −1 sr −1 GeV for an all-flavor… (More)

We present results on searches for exotic particles (relativistic magnetic monopoles and WIMPs) and for UHE neutrinos, obtained with the Baikal neutrino telescope NT200.
The project of an EAS Cherenkov array in the Tunka valley/Siberia with an area of about 1 km 2 is presented. The new array will have a ten times bigger area than the existing Tunka-25 array and will permit a detailed study of the cosmic ray energy spectrum and the mass composition in the energy range from 10 15 to 10 18 eV.
The Baikal Neutrino Telescope NT200 takes data since April 1998. On April 9th, 2005, the 10 Mton scale detector NT200+ was put into operation in Lake Baikal. Selected results obtained during 1998-2002 with the neutrino telescope NT200 are presented.
