Infra-Red(IR) astronomical databases, namely, IRAS, 2MASS, WISE, and Spitzer, are used to analyze photometric data of 126 carbon stars whose spectra are visible in the First Byurakan Survey low-resolution spectral plates. Among these, six new objects, recently confirmed on the digitized FBS plates, are included. For three of them, moderate-resolution CCD optical spectra are also presented. Read More

Studying atmospheric neutrino oscillations in the few-GeV range with a multimegaton detector promises to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy. This is the main science goal pursued by the future KM3NeT/ORCA water Cherenkov detector in the Mediterranean Sea. In this paper, the processes that limit the obtainable resolution in both energy and direction in charged-current neutrino events in the ORCA detector are investigated. Read More

The Compact Linear Collider (CLIC) is a multi-TeV high-luminosity linear e+e- collider under development. For an optimal exploitation of its physics potential, CLIC is foreseen to be built and operated in a staged approach with three centre-of-mass energy stages ranging from a few hundred GeV up to 3 TeV. The first stage will focus on precision Standard Model physics, in particular Higgs and top-quark measurements. Read More

We have built the historical light curve of the luminous variable GR 290 back to 1901, from old observations of the star found in several archival plates of M 33. These old recordings together with published and new data show that for at least half a century the star was in a low luminosity state, with B ~18. After 1960, five large variability cycles of visual luminosity were recorded. Read More

We report direct evidence of superfluidity in a quasi two-dimensional Bose gas by observing its dynamical response to a collective excitation. Relying on a novel local correlation analysis, we are able to probe inhomogeneous clouds and reveal their local dynamics. We identify in this way the superfluid and thermal phases inside the gas and locate the boundary at which the Berezinskii--Kosterlitz--Thouless crossover occurs. Read More

The main objectives of the KM3NeT Collaboration are i) the discovery and subsequent observation of high-energy neutrino sources in the Universe and ii) the determination of the mass hierarchy of neutrinos. These objectives are strongly motivated by two recent important discoveries, namely: 1) The high-energy astrophysical neutrino signal reported by IceCube and 2) the sizable contribution of electron neutrinos to the third neutrino mass eigenstate as reported by Daya Bay, Reno and others. To meet these objectives, the KM3NeT Collaboration plans to build a new Research Infrastructure consisting of a network of deep-sea neutrino telescopes in the Mediterranean Sea. Read More

We have performed new medium resolution spectroscopy, optical and near infrared photometry to monitor the variability of the AGB carbon star V 381 Lac. Our observations revealed rapid and deep changes in the spectrum and extreme variability in the optical and near infrared bands. Most notably we observed the change of NaI D lines from deep absorption to emission, and the progressive growing of the [N II] doublet 6548-6584 A emission, strongly related to the simultaneous photometric fading.

MWC 314 is one of the most luminous stars in the Milky Way. Its fundamental parameters are similar to those of LBVs, although no large photometric variations have been recorded. We analyzed the radial velocity (RV) variations displayed by the absorption lines from the star's atmosphere using high resolution optical spectra. Read More

We present experimental data and theoretical interpretation of NMR spectra of remotely magnetized samples, detected in an unshielded environment by means of a differential atomic magnetometer. The measurements are performed in an ultra-low-field at an intermediate regime, where the J-coupling and the Zeeman energies have comparable values and produce rather complex line sets, which are satisfactorily interpreted. Read More

We study the population of asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars in the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC) by means of full evolutionary models of stars of mass 1Msun < M < 8Msun, evolved through the thermally pulsing phase. The models also account for dust production in the circumstellar envelope. We compare Spitzer infrared colours with results from theoretical modelling. Read More

We present moderate resolution CCD spectra and R photometry for seven KP2001 stars. We revised the spectral classification of the stars in the range 3900 - 8500 A. On the bases of light curves of the NSVS (Northern Sky Variability Survey) database we classify KP2001-18 as a semi regular and KP2001-176 as Mira type variables. Read More

We calculated theoretical evolutionary sequences of asymptotic giant branch (AGB) stars, including formation and evolution of dust grains in their circumstellar envelope. By considering stellar populations of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), we calculate synthetic colour-colour and colour-magnitude diagrams, which are compared with those obtained by the Spitzer Space Telescope. The comparison between observations and theoretical predictions outlines that extremely obscured carbon-stars and oxygen-rich sources experiencing hot bottom burning (HBB) occupy well defined, distinct regions in the colour-colour ($[3.

Advanced data analysis techniques have proved to be crucial for extracting information from noisy images. Here we show that principal component analysis can be successfully applied to ultracold gases to unveil their collective excitations. By analyzing the correlations in a series of images we are able to identify the collective modes which are excited, determine their population, image their eigenfunction, and measure their frequency.

The optical behaviour of the Be star in the high-mass X-ray transient A0535+26/HDE245770 shows that at periastron the luminosity is typically enhanced by 0.02 to a few tenths magnitude, and the X-ray outburst occurs eight days after the periastron. Indeed, at the periastron an increase of the mass flux occurs. Read More

We report on the characterization of a number of AGB candidate stars identified with objective-prism plates of the Byurakan Observatory. Digitized photographic sky survey plates and recent CCD photometry have been used to improve the selection and distinguish variable and non-variable stars. Some comparisons among published catalog magnitudes are also made. Read More

We construct a family of Drinfeld associators interpolating between the Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov associator, the Alekseev-Torossian associator and the anti-Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov associator. We give explicit integral formul\ae\ for the family of elements of the Grothendieck-Teichm\"uller Lie algebra tangent to the family of associators. As an application, we settle a conjecture of Pavel Etingof about the Alekseev-Torossian associator. Read More

The O-rich Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) stars experience strong mass loss with efficient dust condensation and they are major sources of dust in the interstellar medium. Alumina dust (Al$_2$O$_3$) is an important dust component in O-rich circumstellar shells and it is expected to be fairly abundant in the winds of the more massive and O-rich AGB stars. By coupling AGB stellar nucleosynthesis and dust formation, we present a self-consistent exploration on the Al$_2$O$_3$ production in the winds of AGB stars with progenitor masses between $\sim$3 and 7 M$_{\odot}$ and metallicities in the range 0. Read More

We trace the full evolution of low- and intermediate-mass stars ($1 M_{\odot} \leq M \leq 8M_{\odot}$) during the Asymptotic Giant Branch (AGB) phase in the {\it Spitzer} two-color and color-magnitude diagrams. We follow the formation and growth of dust particles in the circumstellar envelope with an isotropically expanding wind, in which gas molecules impinge upon pre--existing seed nuclei, favour their growth. These models are the first able to identify the main regions in the {\it Spitzer} data occupied by AGB stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Read More

We prove the statement/conjecture of M. Kontsevich on the existence of the logarithmic formality morphism. This question was open since 1999, and the main obstacle was the presence of $dr/r$ type singularities near the boundary $r=0$ in the integrals over compactified configuration spaces. Read More

The dust formation process in the winds of Asymptotic Giant Branch stars is discussed, based on full evolutionary models of stars with mass in the range $1$M$_{\odot} \leq$M$\leq 8$M$_{\odot}$, and metallicities $0.001 < Z <0.008$. Read More

The star V2282 Sgr is positionally consistent with a strong Chandra X-ray and a Spitzer/IRAC MIR source. We derived its long term $I$-band light curve from the photographic archives of the Asiago and Catania Observatories, covering the years from 1965 to 1984. CCD $R_C$ photometry in Summer 2009 was re-analyzed. Read More

The nonlinear evolution of collisionless plasmas is typically a multi-scale process where the energy is injected at large, fluid scales and dissipated at small, kinetic scales. Accurately modelling the global evolution requires to take into account the main micro-scale physical processes of interest. This is why comparison of different plasma models is today an imperative task aiming at understanding cross-scale processes in plasmas. Read More

We present new models for the evolution of stars with mass in the range 1Msun < M < 7.5Msun, followed from the pre-main-sequence through the asymptotic giant branch phase. The metallicity adopted is $Z=3*10^{-4} (which, with an alpha-enhancement of +0. Read More

Demers and Battinelli published, in 2007 the rotation curve of the Milky Way based on the radial velocity of carbon stars outside the Solar circle. Since then we have established a new list of candidates for spectroscopy. The goal of this paper is to determine the rotation curve of the galaxy, as far as possible from the galactic center, using N type carbon stars. Read More

An upgrade to the ATLAS silicon tracker cooling control system may require a change from C3F8 (octafluoro-propane) evaporative coolant to a blend containing 10-25% of C2F6 (hexafluoro-ethane). Such a change will reduce the evaporation temperature to assure thermal stability following radiation damage accumulated at full LHC luminosity. Central to this upgrade is a new ultrasonic instrument in which sound transit times are continuously measured in opposite directions in flowing gas at known temperature and pressure to deduce the C3F8/C2F6 flow rate and mixture composition.

For a finite-dimensional Lie algebra $\mathfrak g$ over a field $\mathbb K\supset \mathbb C$, we deduce from the compatibility between cup products Kontsevich (2003, Section 8) and from the main result of Shoikhet (2001) an alternative way of re-writing Kontsevich product $\star$ on $\mathrm S(\mathfrak g)$ by means of the Alekseev--Torossian flat connection (Alekseev and Torossian, 2010). We deduce a similar formula directly from the Kashiwara--Vergne conjecture (Kashiwara and Vergne, 1978). Read More

The purpose of this short note is to establish an explicit equivalence between the two star products $\star$ and $\star_{\log}$ on the symmetric algebra $\mathrm S(\mathfrak g)$ of a finite-dimensional Lie algebra $\mathfrak g$ over a field $\mathbb K\supset\mathbb C$ of characteristic 0 associated with the standard angular propagator and the logarithmic one: the differential operator of infinite order with constant coefficients realizing the equivalence is related to the incarnation of the Grothendieck-Teichm\"uller group considered by Kontsevich.

Carbon rich stars of Population II, such as CH giants, can provide direct information on the role of low to intermediate mass stars of the Halo in early Galactic evolution. Moreover, accurate knowledge of the CH stellar population is a critical requirement for building up scenarios for early Galactic chemical evolution.

The realization of low-cost instruments with high technical performance is a goal which deserves some efforts in an epoch of fast technological developments: indeed such instruments can be easily reproduced and therefore allow to open new research programs in several Observatories. We realized a fast optical photometer based on the SiPM technology, using commercially available modules. Using low-cost components we have developed a custom electronic chain to extract the signal produced by a commercial MPPC module produced by Hamamatsu, in order to obtain sub millisecond sampling of the light curve of astronomical sources, typically pulsars.

In this note, we prove that, for a finite-dimensional Lie algebra $\mathfrak g$ over a field $\mathbb K$ of characteristic 0 which contains $\mathbb C$, the Chevalley--Eilenberg complex $\mathrm U(\mathfrak g)\otimes \wedge(\mathfrak g)$, which is in a natural way a deformation quantization of the Koszul complex of $\mathrm S(\mathfrak g)$, is $A_\infty$-quasi-isomorphic to the deformation quantization of the $A_\infty$-bimodule $K=\mathbb K$ provided by the Formality Theorem in presence of two branes (CFFR).

The biquantization of symmetric pairs was studied in Cattaneo and Torossian in terms of Kontsevich-like graphs. This paper, also in view of recent results in Calaque et al, amends a minor mistake that did not spoil the main results of the paper. The mistake consisted in ignoring a regular term in the boundary contribution of some propagators. Read More

Faint high latitude carbon stars are rare objects commonly thought to be distant, luminous giants. For this reason they are often used to probe the structure of the Galactic halo; however more accurate investigation of photometric and spectroscopic surveys has revealed an increasing percentage of nearby objects with luminosities of main sequence stars. Aiming at clarifyin the nature of the ten carbon star candidates present in the General Catalog of the Second Byurakan Survey we analyzed new optical spectra and photometry and used astronomical databases available on the web.

The proliferation of overlapping, always-on IEEE 802.11 Access Points (APs) in urban areas can cause spectrum sharing conflicts, inefficient bandwidth usage and power waste. Cooperation among APs could address these problems (i) by allowing under-used devices to hand over their clients to nearby APs and temporarily switch off, (ii) by balancing the load of clients among APs and thus offloading congested APs.

We study the long term, S Dor-type variability and the present hot phase of the LBV star GR290 (Romano's Star) in M33 in order to investigate possible links between the LBV and WNL stages of very massive stars. We use intermediate resolution spectra, obtained with WHT in December 2008, when GR290 was at minimum (V = 18.6), as well as new low resolution spectra and B V R I photometry obtained with the Loiano and Cima Ekar telescopes during 2007-2010.

Discovered over 30 years ago, the B[e] phenomenon has not yet revealed all its puzzles. New objects that exhibit it are being discovered in the Milky Way, and properties of known objects are being constrained. We review recent findings about objects of this class and their subgroups as well as discuss new results from studies of the objects with yet unknown nature. Read More

The aim of this short note is to present a proof of the existence of an $A_\infty$-quasi-isomorphism between the $A_\infty$-$\mathrm S(V^*)$-$\wedge(V)$-bimodule $K$, introduced in \cite{CFFR}, and the Koszul complex $\mathrm K(V)$ of $\mathrm S(V^*)$, viewed as an $A_\infty$-$\mathrm S(V^*)$-$\wedge(V)$-bimodule, for $V$ a finite-dimensional (complex or real) vector space.

In this paper we prove a conjecture of B. Shoikhet which claims that two quantization procedures arising from Fourier dual constructions actually coincide. Read More

We define the Hochschild (co)homology of a ringed space relative to a locally free Lie algebroid. Our definitions mimic those of Swan and Caldararu for an algebraic variety. We show that our (co)homology groups can be computed using suitable standard complexes. Read More

We prove a version of Kontsevich's formality theorem for two subspaces (branes) of a vector space $X$. The result implies in particular that the Kontsevich deformation quantizations of $\mathrm{S}(X^*)$ and $\wedge(X)$ associated with a quadratic Poisson structure are Koszul dual. This answers an open question in Shoikhet's recent paper on Koszul duality in deformation quantization. Read More

In this paper we complete the proof of Caldararu's conjecture on the compatibility between the module structures on differential forms over poly-vector fields and on Hochschild homology over Hochschild cohomology. In fact we show that twisting with the square root of the Todd class gives an isomorphism of precalculi between these pairs of objects. Our methods use formal geometry to globalize the local formality quasi-isomorphisms introduced by Kontsevich and Shoikhet (the existence of the latter was conjectured by Tsygan). Read More

We present a detailed spectroscopic analysis of the luminous blue variable AG Carinae during the last two visual minimum phases of its S-Dor cycle (1985-1990 and 2000-2003). The analysis reveals an overabundance of He, N, and Na, and a depletion of H, C, and O, on the surface of AG Car, indicating the presence of CNO-processed material. Furthermore, the ratio N/O is higher on the stellar surface than in the nebula. Read More

In this paper we prove, with details and in full generality, that the isomorphism induced on tangent homology by the Shoikhet-Tsygan formality $L_\infty$-quasi-isomorphism for Hochschild chains is compatible with cap-products. This is a homological analog of the compatibility with cup-products of the isomorphism induced on tangent cohomology by Kontsevich formality $L_\infty$-quasi-isomorphism for Hochschild cochains. As in the cohomological situation our proof relies on a homotopy argument involving a variant of {\bf Kontsevich eye}. Read More

In this paper we prove a conjecture of B. Shoikhet. This conjecture states that the tangent isomorphism on homology, between the Poisson homology associated to a Poisson structure on $\mathbb{R}^d$ and the Hochschild homology of its quantized star-product algebra, is an isomorphism of modules over the (isomorphic) respective cohomology algebras.

We investigate (twisted) rings of differential operators on the resolution of singularities of a particular irreducible component of the (Zarisky) closure of the minimal orbit $\bar O_{\mathrm{min}}$ of $\mathfrak{sp}_{2n}$, intersected with the Borel subalgebra $\mathfrak n_+$ of $\mathfrak{sp}_{2n}$, using toric geometry and show that they are homomorphic images of a subalgebra of the Universal Enveloping Algebra (UEA) of $\mathfrak{sp}_{2n}$, which contains the maximal parabolic subalgebra $\mathfrak p$ determining the minimal nilpotent orbit. Further, using Fourier transforms on Weyl algebras, we show that (twisted) rings of well-suited weighted projective spaces are obtained from the same subalgebra. Finally, investigating this subalgebra from the representation-theoretical point of view, we find new primitive ideals and rediscover old ones for the UEA of $\mathfrak{sp}_{2n}$ coming from the aforementioned resolution of singularities. Read More

We show that Fourier transforms on the Weyl algebras have a geometric counterpart in the framework of toric varieties, namely they induce isomorphisms between twisted rings of differential operators on regular toric varieties, whose fans are related to each other by reflections of one-dimensional cones. The simplest class of examples is provided by the toric varieties related by such reflections to projective spaces. It includes the blow-up at a point in affine space and resolution of singularities of varieties appearing in the study of the minimal orbit of sl(n+1). Read More

Understanding the nature of the instabilities of LBVs is important to understand the late evolutionary stages of very massive stars. We investigate the long term, S Dor-type variability of the luminous blue variable GR290 (Romano's star) in M33, and its 2006 minimum phase. New spectroscopic and photometric data taken in November and December 2006 were employed in conjunction with already published data on GR290 to derive the physical structure of GR290 in different phases and the time scale of the variability.

We studied the circumstellar environment of the B[e] star HD 45677 through the analysis of the emission lines from ionized metals. We used the statistical approach of the self absorption curve method (SAC) to derive physical parameters of the line emitting region. The Fe II and Cr II double-peaked emission line structure is explained by the presence of a thin absorption component red shifted by ~3 km/s. Read More
