Taking advantage of the all-sky coverage and broad frequency range of the Planck satellite, we study the Sunyaev-Zeldovich (SZ) and pressure profiles of 62 nearby massive clusters detected at high significance in the 14-month nominal survey. Careful reconstruction of the SZ signal indicates that most clusters are individually detected at least out to R 500.(More)
We present constraints on cosmological parameters using number counts as a function of redshift for a sub-sample of 189 galaxy clusters from the Planck SZ (PSZ) catalogue. The PSZ is selected through the signature of the Sunyaev–Zeldovich (SZ) effect, and the sub-sample used here has a signal-to-noise threshold of seven, with each object confirmed as a(More)
Context. About half of the baryons of the Universe are expected to be in the form of filaments of hot and low-density intergalactic medium. Most of these baryons remain undetected even by the most advanced X-ray observatories, which are limited in sensitivity to the diffuse low-density medium. Aims. The Planck satellite has provided hundreds of detections(More)
Symmetrically disubstituted diacetylenes, X-C≡C-C≡C-X, were studied computationally by using the DFT B3LYP/aug-cc-pVDZ method. For more than 35 substituents the bond lengths, charge density and Laplacian in bond critical points, C≡C stretching vibrational frequencies, (13)C NMR chemical shifts and spin-spin CC coupling constants through diacetylene moiety(More)
In this paper, the rate limiter describing function is used to analyze by harmonic balance the existence of limit cycles in first order plants. Next, by comparison with analytical results previously obtained by the authors, the accuracy of the above approximate predictions is assessed. The main conclusion is that from a qualitative point of view the(More)
