Contrary to what it is usually assumed, it is shown that the summation of the ring series and the solution of the Dyson's equation are two different ... More

On quasar host galaxies as tests of non-cosmological redshiftsJun 06 2005Despite a general consensus in the astronomical community that all quasars are located at the distances implied by their redshifts, a number of observations still challenge this interpretation, possibly indicating that some subpopulation of quasars may ...

Measuring Leptonic CP Violation with a Water CerenkovJul 01 2006In this talk, we present the physics case for a megaton Water Cerenkov detector in addressing some of the still pending questions in neutrino oscillations physics, particularly the measurement of leptonic CP violation. We compare different future beams ... More
