The authors report a case of myiasis of the middle ear caused by Wohlfartia magnifica Schiner (Diptera: Sarcophagidae). The entomological aspects, the clinical epidemiological characteristics and the therapeutic solutions of this disease are evaluated. In particular, they underline the rarity of myiasis both because of the aetiologic agent and the(More)
This paper presents the simulation of the GLAST high energy gammaray telescope. The simulation package, written in C++, is based on the Geant4 toolkit, and it is integrated into a general framework used to process events. A detailed simulation of the electronic signals inside Silicon detectors has been provided and it is used for the particle tracking,(More)
Exploring signals from the outer space has become an observational science under fast expansion. On the basis of its advanced technology the MAGIC telescope is the natural building block for the first large scale ground based high energy γ-ray observatory. The low energy threshold for γ-rays together with different background sources leads to a considerable(More)
The observation of high-energetic γ-rays with ground based air cerenkov telescopes is one of the most exciting areas in modern astro particle physics giving insight into active galactic nuclei (AGN), pulsars, supernova remnants, unidentified EGRET sources, γ-ray bursts and cosmology. The MAGIC telescope started operation at the end of 2003. The low energy(More)
In this paper, we focus on the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) improvement in single channel audio recordings. Many approaches have been reported in the literature. The most popular method, with many variants, is Short Time Spectral Attenuation (STSA). Although this method reduces the noise and improves the SNR, it mostly tends to introduce signal distortion(More)
Gamma ray astronomy is now at the leading edge for studies related both to fundamental physics and astrophysics. The sensitivity of gamma detectors is limited by the huge amount of background, constituted by hadronic cosmic rays (typically two to three orders of magnitude more than the signal) and by the accidental background in the detectors. By using the(More)
Infrasonic data at volcanoes have been increasingly analyzed to get information about eruptive activity. Wind noise is an important problem, which cannot be solved using more classical seismological techniques such as deconvolution (Robinson, 1967), as the interaction between wind and original signal cannot be modeled simply as a convolution. The problem(More)
We studied the application of the Pseudo-Zernike features as image parameters (instead of the Hillas parameters) for the discrimination between the images produced by atmospheric electromagnetic showers caused by gamma-rays and the ones produced by atmospheric electromagnetic showers caused by hadrons in the MAGIC Experiment. We used a Support Vector(More)
