The lack of this suppression in d+Au collision proved, this effect can be connected to final state effects, namely medium induced jet energy ... More

GRB 060218 and the outliers with respect to the Ep-Eiso correlationJan 31 2007GRB 031203 and GRB 980425 are the two outliers with respect to the Ep-Eiso correlation of long GRBs. Recently Swift discovered a nearby extremely long GRB 060218 associated with a SN event. The spectral properties of this bursts are striking: on the one ... More

Prediction of the Proton-to-Total Turbulent Heating in the Solar WindJun 21 2011This paper employs a recent turbulent heating prescription to predict the ratio of proton-to-total heating due to the kinetic dissipation of Alfvenic turbulence as a function of heliocentric distance. Comparing to a recent empirical estimate for this ... More
