Colliding Winds from Early-Type Stars in Binary Systems
The dynamics of the wind and shock structure formed by the wind collision in early-type binary systems is examined by means of a 2D hydrodynamics code, which self-consistently accounts for radiative
Starburst-driven galactic winds — I. Energetics and intrinsic X-ray emission
Starburst-driven galactic winds are responsible for the transport of mass, in particular metal-enriched gas, and energy out of galaxies and into the intergalactic medium. These outflows directly
3D modelling of the colliding winds in η Carinae – evidence for radiative inhibition
The X-ray emission from the super-massive star η Car is simulated using a three dimensional model of the wind-wind collision. In the model the intrinsic X-ray emission is spatially extended and
Exciting the magnetosphere of the magnetar CXOU J164710.2-455216 in Westerlund 1
We describe XMM-Newton observations taken 4.3 days prior to and 1.5 days subsequent to two remarkable events that were detected with Swift on 2006 September 21 from the candidate magnetar CXOU
Chandra and XMM–Newton observations of NGC 5253: analysis of the X-ray emission from a dwarf starburst galaxy
We present Chandra and XMM‐Newton X-ray data of NGC 5253, a local starbursting dwarf elliptical galaxy, in the early stages of a starburst episode. Contributions to the X-ray emission come from
Magnetospheric radio emission from extrasolar giant planets: the role of the host stars
ABSTRACT We present a new analysis of the expected magnetospheric radio emission fromextrasolar giant planets for a distance limited sample of the nearest known extrasolarplanets. Using recent
Ionization effects in the radiative driving of stellar winds in massive X-ray binary systems.
This paper presents calculations of the effect of changing X-ray ionization conditions on the radiative force experienced by the stellar wind material in a massive X-ray binary system. The radiative
Bulk Velocities, Chemical Composition, and Ionization Structure of the X-Ray Shocks in WR 140 near Periastron as Revealed by the Chandra Gratings
The Wolf-Rayet WC7+O4-5 binary WR 140 went through the periastron passage of its 8 yr eccentric binary orbit in early 2001 as the two stars made their closest approach. Both stars have powerful
Chandra and XMM-Newton observations of NGC 4214: the hot interstellar medium and the luminosity function of dwarf starbursts
We present results from Chandra and XMM-Newton X-ray observations of NGC4214, a nearby dwarf starburst galaxy containing several young regions of very active star-formation. Starburst regions are
