Laser Interferometer Space Antenna
Following the selection of The Gravitational Universe by ESA, and the successful flight of LISA Pathfinder, the LISA Consortium now proposes a 4 year mission in response to ESA's call for missionsExpand

Re-examining the X-ray versus spin-down luminosity correlation of rotation powered pulsars
The empirical relation between the X-ray luminosity (in the 2{10 keV band) and the rate of spin-down energy loss Lsd of a sample of 39 pulsars is re-examined considering recent data from ASCA, RXTE,Expand

The neutron stars of Soft X–ray Transients
Summary. Soft X–ray Transients (SXRTs) have long been suspected to contain old, weakly magnetic neutron stars that have been spun up by accretion torques. After reviewing their observationalExpand

Aquila X-1 from Outburst to Quiescence: The Onset of the Propeller Effect and Signs of a Turned-on Rotation-powered Pulsar
We report on the 1997 March-April BeppoSAX observations of Aquila X-1, which were the first to monitor the evolution of the spectral and time-variability properties of a neutron star soft X-rayExpand

Low-frequency gravitational-wave science with eLISA/NGO
We review the expected science performance of the New Gravitational-Wave Observatory (NGO, a.k.a. eLISA), a mission under study by the European Space Agency for launch in the early 2020s. eLISA willExpand

Black hole mass estimate for a sample of radio-loud narrow-line Seyfert 1 galaxies
We discuss the relationship between a standard Shakura & Sunyaev (1973) accretion disk model and the Big Blue Bump (BBB) observed in Type 1 AGN, and propose a new method to estimate black holeExpand

The Metamorphosis of Tidally Stirred Dwarf Galaxies
We present results from high-resolution N-body/SPH (smoothed particle hydrodynamic) simulations of rotationally supported dwarf irregular galaxies moving on bound orbits in the massive dark matterExpand

Dynamical Friction and the Evolution of Satellites in Virialized Halos: The Theory of Linear Response
The evolution of a small satellite inside a more massive truncated isothermal spherical halo is studied using both the theory of linear response for dynamical friction and N-body simulations. TheExpand

GW190425: Observation of a Compact Binary Coalescence with Total Mass ∼ 3.4 M ⊙
On 2019 April 25, the LIGO Livingston detector observed a compact binary coalescence with signal-to-noise ratio 12.9. The Virgo detector was also taking data that did not contribute to detection dueExpand
