Constraining The Hubble Parameter Using Distance Modulus - Redshift RelationJul 09 2015Mar 11 2016Using the relation between distance modulus $(m - M)$ and redshift $z$, deduced from Friedman- Robertson-Walker (FRW) metric and assuming different values of deceleration parameter $q_0$. We constrained the Hubble parameter $h$. The estimates of the Hubble ... More

Magnetic field dependence of the antiferromagnetic phase transitions in Co-doped YbRh_2Si_2Aug 10 2009We present first specific-heat data of the alloy Yb(Rh_(1-x)Co_x)_2Si_2 at intermediate Co-contents x=0.18, 0.27, and 0.68. The results already point to a complex magnetic phase diagram as a function of composition. Co-doping of YbRh_2Si_2 (T_N^{x=0}=72 ... More

The 8-13 Micron Spectrum of Arp 299CFeb 19 1993Arp 299C is a $5 \times 10^{10}$ \Lsun infrared source in the merging galaxy system Arp 299. It is the most luminous object known that is not obviously associated with a galaxy nucleus. Our data show that the 8--13 \mum spectrum of Arp 299C has a strong ... More

Constrained systems described by Nambu mechanicsMay 29 1996Using the framework of Nambu's generalised mechanics, we obtain a new description of constrained Hamiltonian dynamics, involving the introduction of another degree of freedom in phase space, and the necessity of defining the action integral on a world ...
