NEW VELOCIMETRY AND REVISED CARTOGRAPHY OF THE SPIRAL ARMS IN THE MILKY WAY—A CONSISTENT SYMBIOSIS
Recent advances in the determinations of the positions (pitch angle, shape, numbers, interarm separation) and velocities (rotation curve) of the spiral arms are evaluated and compared to previousExpand

The Spiral Arms and Interarm Separation of the Milky Way: An Updated Statistical Study
Measurements of the spiral arms (their pitch angle, number, shape, and the interarm separation) in the Milky Way have been published in the period from 1980 to early 2005, using different methodsExpand

Recent advances in the determination of some Galactic constants in the Milky Way
Here we statistically evaluate recent advances in determining the Sun-Galactic Center distance (Rsun$R_{\mathit{sun}}$) as well as recent measures of the orbital velocity around the Galactic CenterExpand

Cosmic magnetic fields – as observed in the Universe, in galactic dynamos, and in the Milky Way
Abstract Cosmic magnetism has that exotic “Je ne sais quoi”! Magnetism has been observed in various objects, located near the edge of the Universe and all the way down to the Milky Way's center. TheExpand

THE SPIRAL ARMS OF THE MILKY WAY: THE RELATIVE LOCATION OF EACH DIFFERENT ARM TRACER WITHIN A TYPICAL SPIRAL ARM WIDTH
From the Sun's location in the Galactic disk, different arm tracers (CO, H I, hot dust, etc.) have been employed to locate a tangent to each spiral arm. Using all various and different observedExpand

Automated registration of dynamic MR images for the quantification of myocardial perfusion
Cardiac dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) after contrast media injection suffers from motion induced by free breathing during acquisition. This work presents an automated approach for motionExpand

A Cool Filament Crossing the Warm Protostar DR 21(OH): Geometry, Kinematics, Magnetic Vectors, and Pressure Balance
Here we made multiconstituent (gas/dust/field), homogeneous maps of a length of a vertical filament including DR 21(OH) proper. We observed at a radial velocity around -3.5 km s-1 the 12CO, 13CO, andExpand

Metastudy of the Spiral Structure of Our Home Galaxy
The current maps of the Milky Way disk still have large differences, much like early maps of the Earth's continents made in the 16th century had sizeable differences in the locations of continentsExpand

CATALOG OF OBSERVED TANGENTS TO THE SPIRAL ARMS IN THE MILKY WAY GALAXY
From the Sun's location in the Galactic disk, one can use different arm tracers (CO, H I, thermal or ionized or relativistic electrons, masers, cold and hot dust, etc.) to locate a tangent to eachExpand
