In the history of the discovery tools of last century particle physics, central stage is taken by elementary particle accelerators and in particular by colliders. In their start and early
Explaining the laser’s light: classical versus quantum electrodynamics in the 1960s
The laser, first operated in 1960, produced light with coherence properties that demanded explanation. While some attempted a treatment within the framework of classical coherence theory, others

The 21st century imposes totally new challenges on businesses, different from anything they have experienced before, due to a very high degree of complexity and uncertainty. These transformations, ...


Visual binary star orbits in universal variables
In this paper, we make use of the Stumpff's functions to solve the problem of determining the orbit of a visual binary star in universal variables. The method is thus valid for all types of orbits:
The abundance ratio C/O in the atmospheres of 343 carbon stars. I. The Orion galactic arm
The abundance ratio C/O in the atmospheres of 343 carbon stars in the Orion galactic arm is detected. Method of data reduction and errors of results are discussed.
Variability in the southern blazars PKS 1921-293 and PKS 2155-152
We report results of 1435 MHz rapid variability observations of the southern extragalactic sources PKS 1921-293 and PKS 2155-152. Both objects displayed variability in their flux densities on
On the limit of brightness temperature in nonstationary radio sources
Observations imply that extragalactic radio sources must be in nonstationary states. One possible way to interpret a observed high brightness temperature which exceeds the inverse Compton limit is by
Colliding winds model of X-ray radiation in SS 433: analysis of X-ray eclipses
Interpretation of X-ray eclipses in SS 433 binary system in the framework of wind-wind collision model yields high value of mass ratioq =mx/mv > 1 which implies high mass of relativistic objectmx >
Secular stability behaviour of nuclear burning before relaxation
The criterion for the secular stability of nuclear burning is revised for times shorter than the effective time of relaxation into diffusion.Using the Cattaneo equation for the heat flux, we show
Polyatomic molecules in diffuse clouds
The consequences on the chemistry in diffuse clouds of the injection of small hydrocarbon molecules is explored. It is assumed that the injection arises from the erosion of carbonaceous grains at
What do streamers in the dust tail tell about the cometary nucleus?
The interrelations between the physical parameters of a cometary nucleus, and the morphology of the dust tail and its streamers are systematically investigated by means of a model developed by Beißer
