Following the detection of renewed activity in H1743-322 with Swift/BAT (Krimm et al., ATEL #2058 <http://www.astronomerstelegram.org/?read=2058>), we triggered radio observations of the source using the VLA. Observations were taken on 2009 May 27 (0855-0915 UT) at 8.4 GHz, with the array in its CnB configuration. The source was detected at a level of 2.24(More)
This paper presents the development of a new set of magnitude, phase, and comprehensive error measures. These error measures can be used to evaluate the differences between two general functions, or test and analytical data, by providing a robust means for quantifying the difference in magnitude, the phasing, and overall error between the functions.

The ability to monitor tissue oxygen concentration in a specific region of the brain in a freely moving animal could provide a new paradigm in neuroscience research. We have developed a fully implantable telemetry system for the continuous and chronic recording of brain tissue oxygen (PO(2,BR)) in conscious animals. A telemetry system with a sampling rate(More)
Peripheral B cell tolerance was studied in mice of the autoimmune-prone, Fas-deficient MRL/ lpr.H-2(d) genetic background by introducing a transgene that directs expression of membrane-bound H-2Kb antigen to liver and kidney (MT-Kb) and a second transgene encoding antibody reactive with this antigen (3-83mu delta, anti-Kk,b). Control immunoglobulin(More)
We report the discovery of a new hysteresis effect in black hole X-ray binary state transitions, that of the near-infrared (NIR) flux (which most likely originates in the jets) versus X-ray flux. We find, looking at existing data sets, that the infrared emission of black hole X-ray transients appears to be weaker in the low/hard state rise of an outburst(More)

PSR J2129−0429 is a " redback " eclipsing millisecond pulsar binary with an unusually long 15.2 hr orbit. It was discovered by the Green Bank Telescope in a targeted search of unidentified Fermi gamma-ray sources. The pulsar companion is optically bright (mean m R =16.6 mag), allowing us to construct the longest baseline photometric data set available for(More)
Near-infrared (NIR) and optical polarimetric observations of a selection of X-ray bina-ries are presented. The targets were observed using the Very Large Telescope and the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope. We detect a significant level (3σ) of linear po-larisation in four sources. The polarisation is found to be intrinsic (at the > 3σ level) in two(More)
