A large sample of low surface brightness disc galaxies from the SDSS- II. Metallicities in surface brightness binsApr 21 2010We study the spectroscopic properties of a large sample of Low Surface Brightness galaxies (LSBGs) (with B-band central surface brightness mu0(B)>22 mag arcsec^(-2)) selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 4 (SDSS-DR4) main galaxy sample. ...

A possible giant planet orbiting the cataclysmic variable LX SerNov 29 2016Dec 20 2016LX Ser is a deeply eclipsing cataclysmic variable with an orbital period of $0.^d 1584325$. Sixty two new eclipse times were determined by our observations and the AAVSO International Data base. Combining all available eclipse times, we analyzed the O-C ... More
The properties of a large sample of low surface brightness galaxies from SDSSOct 11 2009A large sample of low surface brightness (LSB) disk galaxies is selected from SDSS with B-band central surface brightness mu_0(B) from 22 to 24.5 mag arcsec^(-2). Some of their properties are studied, such as magnitudes, surface brightness, scalelengths, ... More
The Type Ia Supernova 1997br in ESO 576-G40Mar 30 1999The peculiar type Ia supernova SN 1997br in ESO 576-G40 was extensively observed at Beijing Astronomical Observatory and Lick Observatory. In this paper, we present and discuss the BVRI photometry and the spectra collected over 3 months, beginning 9 days ... More
Upper limits on the solar-neutron flux at the Yangbajing neutron monitor from BATSE-detected solar flaresMar 16 2007The purpose of this work is to search the Yangbajing neutron monitor data obtained between 1998 October and 2000 June for solar neutrons associated with solar flares. Using the onset times of 166 BATSE-detected flares with the GOES peak flux (1 -- 8 \AA) ... More
Long-term optical and radio variability of BL LacertaeMay 12 2014Well-sampled optical and radio light curves of BL Lacertae in B, V, R, I bands and 4.8, 8.0, 14.5 GHz from 1968 to 2014 were presented in this paper. A possible $1.26 \pm 0.05$ yr period in optical bands and a $7.50 \pm 0.15$ yr period in radio bands ... More
