We present observations of the 9.8 s X-ray pulsar XTE J1859+083 made with the All Sky Monitor (ASM) and Proportional Counter Array (PCA) on board the Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer, and the Wide Field Camera (WFC) on board BeppoSAX. The ASM data cover a 12 year time interval and show that an extended outburst occurred between approximately MJD 50,250 and 50,460 (1996 June 16 to 1997 January 12). The ASM data excluding this outburst interval suggest a possible modulation with a period of 60.65 ± 0…

PHASE-RESOLVED SPECTRAL ANALYSIS OF 4U 1901+03 DURING ITS OUTBURST
The high-mass X-ray binary 4U 1901+03 is reported to have a pulse profile evolving with the X-ray luminosity and energy during its outburst in 2003 February-July: the pulse peak changed from double

Using neutrinos as cosmic messengers for observation of non-thermal processes in the Universe is a highly attractive and promising vision, which has been pursued in various neutrino telescope
THE GOODNESS OF SIMULTANEOUS FITS IN ISIS
TLDR
Stacking the residuals from the best-fit model for the Vela X-1 and XTE J1859+083 data evidences fluorescent emission lines that would have gone undetected otherwise.
The Ups and Downs of Accreting X-Ray Pulsars: Decade-long Observations with the Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor
We review more than 10 years of continuous monitoring of accreting X-ray pulsars with the all-sky Gamma-ray Burst Monitor (GBM) aboard the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope. Our work includes data from
