(2018)Supermassive black hole binaries (SMBHBs) are expected due to galaxy mergers and the ubiquity of central supermassive black holes (SMBHs) in galaxies, but direct evidence for close-separation SMBHBs has been elusive. This ...
SIFTING FOR SAPPHIRES IN THE TRANSIENT SKY: THE SEARCH FOR TIDAL DISRUPTION EVENTS IN THE OPTICAL TIME DOMAIN (2018)Tidal disruption events (TDEs) refer to the scenario where a star passes within the tidal disruption sphere of a supermassive black hole (SMBH) and becomes torn apart by tidal stresses. In the classical picture, a ...
(arXiv.org, 2018-11-19)Since 2014, the Niel Gehrels Swift observatory has conducted a series of intensive accretion disk reverberation mapping (IDRM) campaigns of bright AGN. This archive contains reduced data from the first four of these ...
PIC simulation data for "Effect of the reconnection electric field on electron distribution functions in the diffusion region of magnetotail reconnection" (2018)2-dimensional particle-in-cell simulation data for a paper, "Effect of the reconnection electric field on electron distribution functions in the diffusion region of magnetotail reconnection".
(2018)Stars are commonly formed in clusters in dense regions of interstellar medium called molecular clouds. In this thesis, we improve our understanding of the physics of star formation through multiple experiments involving ...
