Phenomenology of cosmic ray air showersMay 30 2005The properties of cosmic rays with energies above 1PeV have to be deduced from the spacetime structure and particle content of the air showers which they initiate. In this review, a summary of the phenomenology of these giant air showers is presented. ... More

An analytic study of Bondi-Hoyle-Lyttleton accretionMay 18 1999The adiabatic shock produced by a compact object moving supersonically relative to a gas with uniform entropy and no vorticity is a source of entropy gradients and vorticity. We investigate these analytically. The non-axisymmetric Rayleigh-Taylor and ... More

Simple Real-Space Picture of Nodeless and Nodal s-wave Gap Functions in Iron Pnictide SuperconductorsNov 16 2009Nov 18 2009We propose a simple way to parameterize the gap function in iron pnictides. The key idea is to use orbital representation, not band representation, and to assume real-space short-range pairing. Our parameterization reproduces fairly well the structure ... More
