The unexpectedly hard very-high-energy (VHE; $E > 100$ GeV) $\gamma$-ray spectra of a few distant blazars have been interpreted as evidence for a reduction of the $\gamma\gamma$ opacity of the Universe due to the interaction of VHE $\gamma$-rays with the extragalactic background light (EBL) compared to the expectation from our current knowledge of the density and cosmological evolution of the EBL. One of the suggested solutions to this problem consisted of the inhomogeneity of the EBL. In this paper, we study the effects of such inhomogeneities on the energy density of the EBL (which then also becomes anisotropic) and the resulting $\gamma\gamma$ opacity. Read More

The analysis of RLC circuits is usually made by considering phasor transforms of sinusoidal signals (characterized by constant amplitude, period and phase) that allow the calculation of the AC steady state of RLC circuits by solving simple algebraic equations. In this paper I try to show that phasor representation of RLC circuits is analogue to consider the frequency response function (commonly designated by FRF) of the total impedance of the circuit. In this way I derive accurate expressions for the resonance and anti-resonance frequencies and their corresponding values of impedances of the parallel and series RLC circuits respectively, notwithstanding the presence of damping effects.
