[1] We present techniques for comparing measurements of velocity, temperature, and density with constraints imposed by the plasma physics of magnetized bi-Maxwellian ions. Deviations from these physics-based constraints are interpreted as arising from measurement errors. Two million ion spectra from the Solar Wind Experiment Faraday Cup instruments on the(More)
The interpretation of NMR relaxation data for macromolecules possessing slow interdomain motions is considered. It is shown how the "extended model-free approach" can be used to analyze (15)N backbone relaxation data acquired at three different field strengths for Xenopus Ca(2+)-ligated calmodulin. This protein is comprised of two domains connected by two(More)
The fundamental premise of Natural Computing is that nature computes, and that computing capability has to be understood, modeled, abstracted and used for different objectives and in different contexts. Therefore, it is necessary to propose a new language capable of describing and allowing the comprehension of natural systems as a union of computing(More)
[1] Over 12 years of IMP 8, data was searched for observed bow shock crossings. Out of the total 4562 crossings found, we used the 2293 unambiguous bow shocks for which upstream interplanetary magnetic field and solar wind parameters were available to study selected bow shock models under normal and unusual solar wind conditions. This statistical study(More)
Four spacecraft Cluster magnetic field observations of the low β quasi-perpendicular terrestrial bowshock are presented for the first time. Multiple quasi-perpendicular crossings on 25 December 2000 are analysed. By combining data from the four spacecraft, bowshock orientations and velocities can be calculated. It is shown that, even while in rapid motion,(More)
[1] We present observations of low-frequency waves (0.25 Hz < f < 10 Hz) at five quasi-perpendicular interplanetary (IP) shocks observed by the Wind spacecraft. Four of the five IP shocks had oblique precursor whistler waves propagating at angles with respect to the magnetic field of 20°–50° and large propagation angles with respect to the shock normal;(More)
