Study of measured pulsar masses and their possible conclusions
We study the statistics of 61 measured masses of neutron stars (NSs) in binary pulsar systems, including 18 double NS (DNS) systems, 26 radio pulsars (10 in our Galaxy) with white dwarf (WD)Expand

The production of anti-matter in our galaxy
Abstract The discovery of a single anti-helium nucleus in the cosmic ray flux would definitely point toward the existence of stars and even of entire galaxies made of anti-matter. The presence ofExpand

The THESEUS space mission concept: science case, design and expected performances
Abstract THESEUS is a space mission concept aimed at exploiting Gamma-Ray Bursts for investigating the early Universe and at providing a substantial advancement of multi-messenger and time-domainExpand

On a Possible Gamma-Ray Burst-Supernova Time Sequence
The data from the Chandra satellite on the iron emission lines in the afterglow of GRB 991216 are used to give further support to the theory that links the origin of the energy of gamma-ray burstsExpand

The Gamma-ray galactic diffuse radiation and Cerenkov telescopes
By using the PYTHIA version of the Lund Monte Carlo program, we study the photon yield of proton-proton collisions in the energy range between 10 GeV and 1 TeV. The resulting photon spectrum turnsExpand

The observed galactic annihilation line : Possible signature of accreting small-mass black holes in the galactic center
Various balloon and satellite observatories have revealed what appears to be an extended source of 0.511 MeV annihilation radiation with flux of approx. 10(exp -3) photons/sq cm/s centered on theExpand

On the Structure of the Burst and Afterglow of Gamma-Ray Bursts I
We have recently proposed three paradigms for the theoretical interpretation of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs). (1) The relative space–time transformation (RSTT) paradigm emphasizes how the knowledge of theExpand

On the Instantaneous Spectrum of Gamma-Ray Bursts
A theoretical attempt to identify the physical process responsible for the afterglow emission of Gamma-Ray Bursts (GRBs) is presented, leading to the occurrence of thermal emission in the comovingExpand

New perspectives in physics and astrophysics from the theoretical understanding of Gamma‐Ray Bursts
If due attention is given in formulating the basic equations for the Gamma‐Ray Burst (GRB) phenomenon and in performing the corresponding quantitative analysis, GRBs open a main avenue of inquiringExpand

The Blackholic energy and the canonical Gamma-Ray Burst IV: the 'long', 'genuine short' and 'fake - disguised short' GRBs
We report some recent developments in the understanding of GRBs based on the theoretical framework of the “fireshell” model, already presented in the last three editions of the “Brazilian School ofExpand
