We have measured the rest-frame B, V, and I-band light curves of a high-redshift type Ia supernova (SN Ia), SN 1999Q (z = 0.46), using HST and ground-based near-infrared detectors. A goal of this study is the measurement of the color excess, E B−I , which is a sensitive indicator of interstellar or intergalactic dust which could affect recent cosmological(More)
This is the second volume of a two volume report on unravel, a Computer Aided Software Engineering (CASE) tool for software written in ANSI C, that can assist evaluation of high integrity software by using program slices to extract computations for examination. In this volume, we provide a user manual for unravel. This manual is intended to provide the user(More)
We report the first scattered light detection of a dusty debris disk surrounding the F2V star HD 15115 using the Hubble Space Telescope in the optical, and Keck adaptive optics in the near-infrared. The most remarkable property of the HD 15115 disk relative to other debris disks is its extreme length asymmetry. The east side of the disk is detected to ∼315(More)
The Sun and >15 per cent of nearby stars are surrounded by dusty disks that must be collisionally replenished by asteroids and comets, as the dust would otherwise be depleted on timescales <10(7) years (ref. 1). Theoretical studies show that the structure of a dusty disk can be modified by the gravitational influence of planets, but the observational(More)
Near-infrared, sub-arcsecond seeing images obtained with the W. M. Keck I Telescope of show strong evolution at rest–frame optical wavelengths in the morphologies of high redshift radio galaxies (HzRGs) with 1.9 < z < 4.4. The structures change from large–scale low surface brightness regions surrounding bright, multiple component and often radio– aligned(More)
We present 2.03-2.30 µm near-infrared spectroscopy of Neptune taken 1999 June 2 (UT) with the W.M. Keck Observatory's near-infrared spectrometer (NIRSPEC) during the commissioning of the instrument. The spectrum is dominated by a bright cloud feature, possibly a storm or upwelling, in the southern hemisphere at approximately 50. • S latitude. The spectrum(More)
The potential for adverse neurotoxic reactions in response to therapeutics and environmental hazards continues to prompt development of novel cell-based assays to determine neurotoxic risk. A challenge remains to characterize and understand differences between assays and between neuronal cellular models in their responses to neurotoxicants if scientists are(More)
A novel point mutation in the ND6 subunit of complex I at position 14,459 of the mitochondrial DNA (MTND6*LDY T14459A) was identified as a candidate mutation for the highly tissue-specific disease. Leber's hereditary optic neuropathy plus dystonia. Since the MTND6*LDYT14459A mutation was identified in a single family, other pedigrees with the mutation are(More)
