We extend the description of the isotropic and anisotropic random component of the small-scale magnetic field within the existing magnetic field model of the Milky Way from Jansson Farrar, by including random realizations of the small-scale component. Using a magnetic-field power spectrum with Gaussian random fields, the NE2001 model for the thermal electrons and the Galactic cosmic-ray electron distribution from the current GALPROP model we derive full-sky maps for the total and polarized… Expand
Galactic magnetic field bias on inferences from UHECR data
A consequence of Liouville's theorem indicates that the recently observed large scale anisotropy in the arrival direction of Ultra-High-Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECRs) cannot be produced by the GalacticExpand
The Galactic Magneto-Ionic Medium Survey: Moments of the Faraday Spectra
Faraday rotation occurs along every line of sight in the Galaxy; Rotation Measure (RM) synthesis allows a three-dimensional representation of the interstellar magnetic field. This study uses dataExpand
Radiative transfer with POLARIS. II.: Modeling of synthetic Galactic synchrotron observations.
We present an updated version of POLARIS, a well established code designated for dust polarisation and line radiative transfer (RT) in arbitrary astrophysical environments. We extend the alreadyExpand

We present version X of the hammurabi package, the HEALPix-based numeric simulator for Galactic polarized emission. Improving on its earlier design, we have fully renewed the framework with modernExpand
Effects of self-generated turbulence on Galactic Cosmic Ray propagation and associated diffuse gamma-ray emission
Recent results obtained by analyzing diffuse gamma-ray emission detected by Fermi-LAT show a substantial variation of the CR spectrum as a function of the distance from the Galactic Center. ForExpand
The nuclear window to the extragalactic universe
Abstract We investigate two recent parameterizations of the galactic magnetic field with respect to their impact on cosmic nuclei traversing the field. We present a comprehensive study of the size ofExpand
Propagation of ultrahigh energy cosmic rays in extragalactic magnetic fields: a view from cosmological simulations
We use the CRPropa code to simulate the propagation of ultra high energy cosmic rays (with energy $\geq 10^{18} \rm eV$ and pure proton composition) through extragalactic magnetic fields that haveExpand
The Python Sky Model: software for simulating the Galactic microwave sky
We present a numerical code to simulate maps of Galactic emission in intensity and polarization at microwave frequencies, aiding in the design of cosmic microwave background experiments. This pythonExpand
Magnetic buoyancy in simulated galactic discs with a realistic circumgalactic medium

γ-ray Constraints on Decaying Dark Matter and Implications for IceCube.
Some of the strongest constraints to date on the dark matter (DM) lifetime in the mass range from hundreds of MeV to above an EeV are derived and a decaying DM interpretation for the 10 TeV-1 PeV neutrino flux observed by IceCube is disfavored by these constraints. Expand
