Stellar Turbulent Convection: A Self-consistent Model
We present a self-consistent model for stellar turbulent convection that is similar in spirit to the CM model (Canuto & Mazzitelli 1991) since it accounts for the full spectrum of the turbulentExpand

On the Orbital Circularization of Close Binaries
Recent theoretical and observational work on the tidal circularization of late-type close binaries is reviewed. In a coeval sample of binary systems, short-period binaries are found to have circularExpand

Turbulently generated magnetic fields in clusters of galaxies
The typical scale and velocity of the dominant, turbulent eddies excited by the motion of galaxies in clusters are determined from basic considerations which are valid if a steady state is attained.Expand

Experimental test of the variability of G using Viking lander ranging data
Results are presented from the analysis of solar system astrometric data, notably the range data to the Viking landers on Mars. A least-squares fit of the parameters of the solar system model toExpand

SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE INNER SOLAR SYSTEM AND THE PLANETARY SYSTEM OF PSR B1257+12
We call attention to the surprising similarity between the newly discovered planetary system around PSr B1257+12 and the inner solar system. The similarity is in the ratios of the orbital radii andExpand

Interpretation of the Spatial Power Spectra of Neutral Hydrogen in the Galaxy and in the Small Magellanic Cloud
Recent 21 cm radio observations of H I regions in the Small Magellanic Cloud have revealed spatial power spectra of the intensity that are quite similar in shape to those previously deduced for theExpand

Turbulent convection in thin accretion disks
A self-consistent solution for a thin accretion disk with turbulent convection is presented. The disk viscosity and the convective flux are derived from a physical model for turbulence, and expressedExpand

The effective tidal viscosity in close solar-type binaries
A major problem confronting the understanding of tidal evolution of close solar-type binaries is the inefficiency of the turbulent convection. The value of the effective viscosity estimated, in theExpand
