Unsymmetrical and symmetrical one-range addition theorems for Slater type orbitals and Coulomb-Yukawa like correlated interaction potentials of integer and noninteger indicesJun 12 2007Using one-center expansion relations for the Slater type orbitals (STOs) of noninteger principal quantum numbers in terms of integer n STOs derived in this study with the help of - exponential type orbitals (-ETOs, the general formulas are established ...

Density-Wave Spiral Theories in the 1960s. IIJun 06 2004By the 1970s the spiral subject was in considerable disarray. The semiempirical theory by Lin and Shu was confronted with serious problems. They were put on the defensive over their tightly wrapped steady modes on two principal fronts: from the radial ... More

Galactic Distribution and the Luminosity Function of PulsarsMay 25 2004We have studied the radial distribution and luminosity function of normal pulsars in the Galaxy, on the basis of the ATNF Pulsar Catalogue where the distances are calculated according to the new electron density model NE2001. We show that the maximum ... More

CP Asymmetries (\& T Violation) in Known Matter -- and beyondNov 03 2014Aug 18 2016Finding \cp~violation (\CPV ) in 1964 produced a real revolution in the fundamental dynamics, although the community did not understand it right away. The paper by Kobayashi \& Maskawa \cite{KM} appeared in 1973 to describe \CPV~in classes of three (or ... More

No Pain, No Gain -- On the Challenges and Promises of Charm StudiesJul 17 2009The observation of $D^0 - \bar D^0$ oscillations has left us in a tantalizing quandary concerning the theoretical interpretation: are they still compatible with the SM or might they require new dynamics (NP)? A comprehensive search for CP violation in ... More

Flavour Dynamics & \cp Violation in the Standard Model: A Crucial Past -- and an Essential FutureJan 31 2007Our knowledge of flavour dynamics has undergone a `quantum jump' since just before the turn of the millenium: direct \cp violation has been firmly {\em established} in $K_L \to \pi \pi$ decays in 1999; the first \cp asymmetry outside $K_L$ decays has ...
