By analyzing the renormalization of low-energy coefficients ... More
Photometric study of the star with changing Blazhko effect: TV~BootisJun 17 2014This study investigates periodic modulation of the light curve of the RRc star TV Boo and its physical parameters based on photometric data. This phenomenon, known as Blazhko effect, is quite rare among RRc stars. Frequency analysis based on the data ... More
Successive merging of plasmoids and fragmentation in flare current sheet and their X-ray and radio signaturesJan 25 2011Based on our recent MHD simulations, first, a concept of the successive merging of plasmoids and fragmentation in the current sheet in the standard flare model is presented. Then, using a 2.5-D electromagnetic particle-in-cell model with free boundary ... More
