The psi' mesons were identified through their decays to l+l- and to J/psi pi+ pi-, where the J/psi ... More

Thrust Jet Analysis of Deep-Inelastic Large-Rapidity-Gap EventsNov 13 1997A thrust analysis of Large-Rapidity-Gap events in deep-inelastic ep collisions is presented, using data taken with the H1 detector at HERA in 1994. The average thrust of the final states X, which emerge from the dissociation of virtual photons in the ... More

Low surface brightness galaxies mass profiles as a consequence of galactic evolutionSep 24 2010This paper presents a principal components analysis of rotation curves from a sample of low surface brightness galaxies. The physical meaning of the principal components is investigated, and related to the intrinsic properties of the galaxies. The rotation ... More

Unbiased reconstruction of the mass function using microlensing survey dataApr 05 2000The large number of microlensing events discovered towards the Galactic Bulge bears the promise to reconstruct the stellar mass function. The more interesting issue concerning the mass function is certainly to probe its low mass end. However due to the ... More

Reconstructing the cosmic Horseshoe gravitational lens using the singular perturbative approachJul 05 2016The cosmic horseshoe gravitational lens is analyzed using the perturbative approach. The two first order perturbative fields are expanded in Fourier series. The source is reconstructed using a fine adaptive grid. The expansion of the fields at order 2 ... More
