Magnetic fields in red giant stars remain a poorly understood topic, particularly in what concerns their intensity in regions far below the surface. In this work, we propose that gravity-dominated mixed modes of high absolute radial order and low angular degree can be used to probe the magnetic field in their radiative cores. Using two poloidal, axisymmetric configurations for the field in the core

The afterglow emission from gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) is believed to originate from a relativistic blast wave driven into the circumburst medium. Although the afterglow emission from radio up to X-ray frequencies is thought to originate from synchrotron radiation emitted by relativistic, non-thermal electrons accelerated by the blast wave, the origin of the emission at high energies (HE; ≳ GeV) remains

We forecast the signal-to-noise ratio for HI IM data from SKA1-MID and HIRAX, combined with LSST photometric galaxy samples. We find that, thanks to their different resolutions, SKA1-MID and HIRAX are highly complementary in

Theories describing black hole (BH) growth are challenged by how rapidly seeds with initial mass M• ≲ 105 M⊙, formed at z ∼ 20 − 30, grew to M• ∼ 109 M⊙ by z ∼ 7.

Numerical simulations of self-gravitating accretion disks have shown that the evolution of such systems depends strongly on the rate at which it cools. In this work we study the vertical structure of the self-gravitating accretion disks and also investigate the effect of the cooling rate on the latitudinal structure of such accretion disks. In the spherical coordinates, we write the hydrodynamics equations

We study prospects of constraining the primordial magnetic field (PMF) and its evolution during the dark ages and cosmic dawn in light of EDGES 21-cm signal. Our analysis has been carried out on a ‘colder IGM’ background which is one of the promising avenues to interpret the EDGES signal. We consider the dark matter-baryon interactions for the excess cooling. We find that the colder IGM suppresses

We report on H-band spectra of chemically peculiar Mercury-Manganese (HgMn) stars obtained via the SDSS/APOGEE survey. As opposed to other varieties of chemically peculiar stars such as classical Ap/Bp stars, HgMn stars lack strong magnetic fields and are defined by extreme overabundances of Mn, Hg, and other heavy elements. A satisfactory explanation for the abundance patterns remains to be determined

In this study, as a result of the photometric observations continued on nine UV Ceti type stars, examining the parameters obtained from the models of distributions of the flare equivalent durations in the logarithmic scale versus flare total durations, it is found that the highest flare equivalent durations occurring on the stars (Plateau values) are varying with the B − V colour indexes of those stars

The cosmic curvature, a fundamental parameter for cosmology could hold deep clues to inflation and cosmic origins. We propose an improved model-independent method to constrain the cosmic curvature by combining the constructed Hubble diagram of high-redshift quasars with galactic-scale strong lensing systems expected to be seen by the forthcoming LSST survey. More specifically, the most recent quasar

We present the moving-mesh general relativistic hydrodynamics solver for static spacetimes as implemented in the code, MANGA. Our implementation builds on the architectures of MANGA and the numerical relativity Python package NRPy+. We review the general algorithm to solve these equations and, in particular, detail the time stepping; Riemann solution across moving faces; conversion between primitive

We investigate whether the galaxy and star formation model used for the Auriga simulations can produce a realistic globular cluster (GC) population. We compare statistics of GC candidate star particles in the Auriga haloes with catalogues of the Milky Way (MW) and Andromeda (M31) GC populations. We find that the Auriga simulations do produce sufficient stellar mass for GC candidates at radii and metallicities

Accurate and precise radius estimates of transiting exoplanets are critical for understanding their compositions and formation mechanisms. To know the planet, we must know the host star in as much detail as possible. We present complete results for planet-candidate hosts from the K2-HERMES survey, which uses the HERMES multi-object spectrograph on the Anglo-Australian Telescope to obtain R∼28,000 spectra

Fornax 4 is the most distinctive globular cluster in the Fornax dwarf spheroidal. Located close to the centre of the galaxy, more metal-rich and potentially younger than its four companions (namely, Fornax clusters number 1, 2, 3 and 5), it has been suggested to have experienced a different formation than the other clusters in the galaxy. Here we use HST/WFC3 photometry to characterize the stellar

The 21-cm signal of neutral hydrogen is a sensitive probe of the Epoch of Reionization (EoR), Cosmic Dawn and the Dark Ages. Currently operating radio telescopes have ushered in a data-driven era of 21-cm cosmology, providing the first constraints on the astrophysical properties of sources that drive this signal. However, extracting astrophysical information from the data is highly non-trivial and

We present a framework and an open-source python toolkit to analyse the 2-point statistics of 3D fluctuations in the context of H i intensity maps using the multipole expansion formalism. We include simulations of the cosmological H i signal using N-body and log-normal methods, foregrounds and their removal, as well as instrumental effects. Using these simulations and analytical modelling, we investigate

We present the timing and spectral studies of RX J0209.6–7427 during its rare 2019 outburst using observations with the Soft X-ray Telescope (SXT) and Large Area X-ray Proportional Counter (LAXPC) instruments on the AstroSat satellite. Pulsations having a periodicity of 9.29 s were detected for the first time by the NICER mission in the 0.2–10 keV energy band and, as reported here, by AstroSat over

ABSTRACTWe provide three statistical model prescriptions for the bolometric corrections appropriate for B-type stars as a function of (i) Teff, (ii) Teff and log g, and (iii)Teff, log g and [M/H]. These statistical models have been calculated for 27 different filters, including those of the Gaia space mission, and were derived based on two different grids of bolometric corrections assuming LTE and
