The beta-decay strength deduced from the measurements, combined with QRPA theoretical calculations, allow us to infer that the ground ... More

A new observational tracer for high-density disc-like structures around B[e] supergiantsMar 30 2012The disc formation mechanism of B[e] supergiants is one of the puzzling phenomena in massive star evolution. Rapid stellar rotation seems to play an important role for the non-spherically symmetric mass-loss leading to a high-density disc or ring-like ... More

Unveiling the structure and kinematics of B[e] stars' disks from FEROS and CRIRES spectraDec 19 2012We are investigating the circumstellar material for a sample of B[e] stars using high spectral resolution data taken in the optical and near-infrared regions with ESO/FEROS and ESO/CRIRES spectrographs, respectively. B[e] stars are surrounded by dense ... More

New families of completely transitive codes and distance transitive graphsApr 08 2013In this paper new infinite families of linear binary completely transitive codes are presented. They have covering radius $\rho = 3$ and 4, and are a half part of the binary Hamming and the binary extended Hamming code of length $n=2^m-1$ and $2^m$, respectively, ... More

Topological effects of data incompleteness of gene regulatory networksFeb 16 2012The topological analysis of biological networks has been a prolific topic in network science during the last decade. A persistent problem with this approach is the inherent uncertainty and noisy nature of the data. One of the cases in which this situation ... More

The $^{13}$Carbon footprint of B[e] supergiantsJul 08 2010We report on the first detection of $^{13}$C enhancement in two B[e] supergiants in the Large Magellanic Cloud. Stellar evolution models predict the surface abundance in $^{13}$C to strongly increase during main-sequence and post-main sequence evolution ... More
