Extraction and validation of a new set of CMS pythia8 tunes from underlying-event measurements
For the first time, predictions from pythia8 obtained with tunes based on NLO or NNLO PDFs are shown to reliably describe minimum-bias and underlying-event data with a similar level of agreement to predictions from tunes using LO PDF sets.
Einstein@Home all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves in LIGO S5 data
This paper presents results of an all-sky search for periodic gravitational waves in the frequency range [50, 1190] Hz and with frequency derivative range of similar to[-20, 1.1] x 10(-10) Hz s(-1)

Pulsar Discovery by Global Volunteer Computing
Einstein@Home, a distributed computing project, discovered a rare, isolated pulsar with a low magnetic field in radio survey data from the Arecibo Observatory taken in February 2007, finding PSR J2007+2722.
Star formation towards the Galactic H II region RCW 120. Herschel observations of compact sources
Context. The expansion of H ii regions can trigger the formation of stars. An overdensity of young stellar objects is observed at the edges of H ii regions but the mechanisms that give rise to this
Arecibo PALFA Survey and Einstein@Home: Binary Pulsar Discovery by Volunteer Computing
The discovery of the 20.7 ms binary pulsar J1952+2630 is reported using the distributed computing project Einstein@Home in Pulsar ALFA survey observations with the Arecibo telescope, and a circular orbital solution with an orbital is obtained.
Einstein@Home Discovery of 24 Pulsars in the Parkes Multi-beam Pulsar Survey
We have conducted a new search for radio pulsars in compact binary systems in the Parkes multi-beam pulsar survey (PMPS) data, employing novel methods to remove the Doppler modulation from binary
The Einstein@Home search for radio pulsars and PSR J2007+2722 discovery
Einstein@Home aggregates the computer power of hundreds of thousands of volunteers from 193 countries, to search for new neutron stars using data from electromagnetic and gravitational-wave
Astropulse: A Search for Microsecond Transient Radio Signals Using Distributed Computing. I. Methodology
We are performing a transient, microsecond timescale radio sky survey, called 'Astropulse', using the Arecibo telescope. Astropulse searches for brief (0.4 {mu}s to 204.8 {mu}s ), wideband (relative
Developments in the radio search for extraterrestrial intelligence
Recent results in the effort to characterize the galactic population of extrasolar planets suggest that Earth-size planets in the habitable zone of their parent star may be numerous. This finding
