Cosmic Ray Diffusion in the Galaxy and Diffuse Gamma by Daniele Gaggero

By Daniele Gaggero

The unique paintings offered during this thesis constitutes a big contribution to fashionable Cosmic Ray (CR) physics, and is derived in the course of probably the most interesting classes of this box.
The first half introduces a brand new numerical code (DRAGON) to version the CR propagation in our Galaxy. The code is then used to accomplish a mixed research of CR information, making it attainable to figure out their propagation houses with unparalleled accuracy.
The moment half is devoted to a theoretical interpretation of the new an important experimental effects on cosmic electron and positron spectra (PAMELA, Fermi-LAT experiments). utilizing the instruments built within the first a part of the thesis, the writer convincingly argues for the life of a brand new spectral part, that could come up both from neighborhood astrophysical resources, comparable to pulsars, or from darkish topic annihilation or decay.
This thesis is a hugely complicated paintings; the tools, research and effects are sincerely and thoroughly provided. This paintings is decided to turn into an immense reference record for any destiny paintings during this area.

Beyond Born-Oppenheimer : conical intersections and electronic nonadiabatic coupling terms

INTRODUCING a strong method of constructing trustworthy QUANTUM MECHANICAL remedies of a giant number of approaches IN MOLECULAR platforms. The Born-Oppenheimer approximation has been basic to calculation in molecular spectroscopy and molecular dynamics because the early days of quantum mechanics.

Quantitative Information Fusion for Hydrological Sciences

In a swiftly evolving international of data and expertise, do you ever ask yourself how hydrology is catching up? This publication takes the attitude of computational hydrology andenvisions one of many destiny instructions, particularly, quantitative integration of fine quality hydrologic box information with geologic, hydrologic, chemical, atmospheric, and organic details to represent and expect traditional platforms in hydrological sciences.

Advances in Computational Intelligence and Learning: Methods and Applications

Advances in Computational Intelligence and studying: tools and purposes offers new advancements and purposes within the quarter of Computational Intelligence, which basically describes equipment and techniques that mimic biologically clever habit which will remedy difficulties which have been tricky to resolve by means of classical arithmetic.

In this simplified framework it is possible to find an exact solution of the diffusion equation. 85]; for every δ in this interval, a confidence region for vC and v A was found. Another important result was obtained by this group in Donato et al. 2004 [9]: in this paper the contribution of Particle Dark Matter annihilation to CR antiproton flux is investigated, with particular focus on the uncertainties due to different values of the propagation parameters. The authors present thee models, called MIN, MED and MAX.

The accuracy is second order in both space and time. e. a partial differential equation with two spatial partial derivatives; the generalized methods that are generally adopted are the Operator Splitting (OS) and the more accurate Alternate Direction Implicit (ADI).
