Avian brain area HVC is known to be important for the production of birdsong. In zebra finches, each RA-projecting neuron in HVC emits a single burst of spikes during a song motif. The population ofâ€¦ (More)

Quantum evaporation of Callan-Giddings-Harvey-Strominger black holes is analyzed in the mean-field approximation, incorporating backreaction. Detailed analytical and numerical calculations show that,â€¦ (More)

We calculate the photon emission rate from a general atomic system in the mass-proportional CSL model. For an isolated charged particle emitting kilovolt gamma rays, our results agree with thoseâ€¦ (More)

We provide an explicit analytical calculation that shows the asymptotic approach of the one dimensional Caldeira-Leggett model to thermal equilibrium in the high temperature and weak coupling limit.â€¦ (More)

We study the effect of a mass term in the spontaneous scalarization of neutron stars, for a wide range of scalar field parameters and neutron star equations of state. Even though massless scalarsâ€¦ (More)
