"TNOs are Cool": A survey of the trans-Neptunian region X. Analysis of classical Kuiper belt objects from Herschel and Spitzer observationsMar 25 2014The classical Kuiper belt contains objects both from a low-inclination, presumably primordial, distribution and from a high-inclination dynamically excited population. Based on a sample of classical TNOs with observations at thermal wavelengths we determine ... More

Refined stellar, orbital and planetary parameters of the eccentric HAT-P-2 planetary systemAug 12 2009Oct 08 2009We present refined parameters for the extrasolar planetary system HAT-P-2 (also known as HD 147506), based on new radial velocity and photometric data. HAT-P-2b is a transiting extrasolar planet that exhibits an eccentric orbit. We present a detailed ... More

Physical properties of the extreme centaur and super-comet candidate 2013 AZ60Jul 20 2015We present estimates of the basic physical properties -- including size and albedo -- of the extreme Centaur 2013 AZ60. These properties have been derived from optical and thermal infrared measurements. Our optical measurements revealed a likely full ... More

Overtone and multi-mode RR Lyrae stars in the globular cluster M3Apr 23 2015The overtone and multi-mode RR Lyrae stars in the globular cluster M3 are studied using a 200-d long, $B,V$ and $I_{\mathrm C}$ time-series photometry obtained in 2012. 70\% of the 52 overtone variables observed show some kind of multi-periodicity (additional ...

Properties of the irregular satellite system around Uranus inferred from K2, Herschel and Spitzer observationsJun 21 2017Aug 01 2017In this paper we present visible range light curves of the irregular Uranian satellites Sycorax, Caliban, Prospero, Ferdinand and Setebos taken with Kepler Space Telescope in the course of the K2 mission. Thermal emission measurements obtained with the ... More

Hardness of Online Sleeping Combinatorial Optimization ProblemsSep 11 2015Sep 22 2015We show that several online combinatorial optimization problems that admit efficient no-regret algorithms become computationally hard in the sleeping setting where a subset of actions becomes unavailable in each round. Specifically, we show that the sleeping ... More
