Mass-loss predictions for O and B stars as a function of metallicity
We have calculated a grid of massive star wind models and mass-loss rates for a wide range of metal abundances between 1=100 Z=Z 10. The calculation of this grid completes the Vink et al. (2000)Expand

The Repeating Fast Radio Burst FRB 121102 as Seen on Milliarcsecond Angular Scales
The millisecond-duration radio flashes known as fast radio bursts (FRBs) represent an enigmatic astrophysical phenomenon. Recently, the sub-arcsecond localization (∼100 mas precision) of FRB 121102Expand

Discovery of Luminous Pulsed Hard X-Ray Emission from Anomalous X-Ray Pulsars 1RXS J1708–4009, 4U 0142+61, and 1E 2259+586 by INTEGRAL and RXTE
We investigated the time-averaged high-energy spectral characteristics of the persistent anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) 1RXS J1708-4009, 4U 0142+61, 1E 2259+586, and 1E 1048.1-5937, using RXTE PCAExpand

A Long, Hard Look at the Low/Hard State in Accreting Black Holes
We present the first results of coordinated multiwavelength observations of the Galactic black hole GX 339-4 in a canonical low/hard state, obtained during its 2004 outburst. XMM-Newton observed theExpand

The fundamental plane of accretion onto black holes with dynamical masses
Black hole accretion and jet production are areas of intensive study in astrophysics. Recent work has found a relation between radio luminosity, X-ray luminosity, and black hole mass. With theExpand

A Gaia Data Release 2 catalogue of white dwarfs and a comparison with SDSS
We present a catalogue of white dwarf candidates selected from the second data release of Gaia (DR2). We used a sample of spectroscopically confirmed white dwarfs from the Sloan Digital Sky SurveyExpand

The origin of crystalline silicates in the Herbig Be star HD 100546 and in comet Hale-Bopp
the date of receipt and acceptance should be inserted later Abstract. We have investigated the spatial distribution, and the properties and chemical composition of the dust orbiting HD100546. ThisExpand

Star cluster disruption by giant molecular clouds
We investigate encounters between giant molecular clouds (GMCs) and star clusters. We propose a single expression for the energy gain of a cluster due to an encounter with a GMC, valid for allExpand

Exploring the role of jets in the radio/X-ray correlations of GX 339-4
The Galactic black hole candidate X-ray binary GX 339−4 spends most of its time in the low/hard state, making it an ideal candidate for modeling the assumedly low accretion phase. The radio emissionExpand

Measuring the spin of GRS 1915+105 with relativistic disk reflection
GRS 1915+105 harbors one of the most massive known stellar black holes in the Galaxy. In 2007 May, we observed GRS 1915+105 for ∼117 ks in the low/hard state using Suzaku. We collected and analyzedExpand
