A Ray-Tracing Model of the Vela PulsarJan 19 2001In the relativistic plasma surrounding a pulsar, a subluminal ordinary-mode electromagnetic wave will propagate along a magnetic field line. After some distance, it can break free of the field line and escape the magnetosphere to reach an observer. We ... More
Frame-Independence of Exclusive Amplitudes in the Light-Front QuantizationMar 31 2000While the particle-number-conserving convolution formalism established in the Drell-Yan-West reference frame is frequently used to compute exclusive amplitudes in the light-front quantization, this formalism is limited to only those frames where the light-front ...

Novel approaches to dark-matter detection using space-time separated clocksFeb 19 2019We discuss the theoretical analysis and interpretation of space-time separated clock experiments in the context of a space-time varying scalar field that is non-universally coupled to the standard model fields. If massive, such a field is a candidate ... More
