Towards Simulations of Binary Neutron Star Mergers and Core-Collapse Supernovae with GenASiS
This dissertation describes the current version of GenASiS and reports recent progress in its development. GenASiS is a new computational astrophysics code built for large-scale and multi-dimensionalExpand
Seasonal variability in the lower trophic level environments of the western subtropical Pacific and Oyashio Waters—a retrospective study
The seasonal cycles of phytoplankton and mesozooplankton and their environments in the western subtropical Pacific and Oyashio Waters have been compared and described, using all available historicalExpand
Standing Crops of Planktonic Ciliates and Copepod Nauplii in the Subarctic North Pacific and the Bering Sea in Summer
The values of biomass reported here are generally in agreement with the values reported previously from the Bering Sea Gyre and the Alaskan Gyre but are considerably higher than the previous value found in the Western Subarctic Gyre. Expand
Gamma-ray bursts from nearby neutron stars
We interpret the puzzlingγ-ray bursts as emitted by cooling sparks from the surface of spasmodically accreting, old neutron stars. Their spiky, anisotropic radiation is oriented w.r.t. the galacticExpand


Necessity of evolution in cosmological γ-ray bursts
RESULTS from the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE)1 on the Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory show a relative deficiency of faint γ-ray bursts without any detectable anisotropy. This givesExpand
On the Galactic disk and halo models of gamma-ray bursts
Statistical properties of the distribution of gamma-ray bursts are calculated for a large range of different luminosity functions assumed for the sources. Surprisingly, the observable parameters, , ,Expand
On the cosmological origin of gamma-ray bursts
Statistical properties of gamma-ray bursts are analyzed assuming that the bursters are cosmological. The model adopted is the simplest possible - it has no adjustable parameters. All the bursts areExpand
Spatial distribution of γ-ray bursts observed by BATSE
THE nature of the sources of cosmic γ-ray bursts is a long-standing problem in astrophysics. Lack of knowledge of their true spatial distribution and of their intrinsic brightness has hamperedExpand
The implications of the Compton (GRO) observations for cosmological gamma-ray bursts
The BATSE observations (Fishman et al.; Meegan et al.) have shown that the angular distribution of γ-ray sources in the sky is isotropic and that =0.35. We show that these observations are consistentExpand
Two-population model for the sources of γ-ray bursts
RECENT measurements by the Burst and Transient Source Experiment (BATSE) on the Compton Gamma Ray Observatory Satellite suggest that the distribution of γ-ray burst sources is isotropic about theExpand
