  • The Importance of Scalar Fields as Extradimensional Metric Components in
           Kaluza-Klein Models

    • Abstract: Extradimensional models are achieving their highest popularity nowadays, among other reasons, because they can plausible explain some standard cosmology issues, such as the cosmological constant and hierarchy problems. In extradimensional models, we can infer that the four-dimensional matter rises as a geometric manifestation of the extra coordinate. In this way, although we still cannot see the extra dimension, we can relate it to physical quantities that are able to exert such a mechanism of matter induction in the observable universe. In this work we propose that scalar fields are those physical quantities. The models here presented are purely geometrical no matter the fact that Lagrangian is assumed and even the scalar fields are contained in the extradimensional metric. The results are capable of describing different observable cosmic features and yield an alternative to ultimately understand the extra dimension and the mechanism in which it is responsible for the creation of matter in the observable universe.

  • New Photometric Investigation of the Solar-Type Shallow-Contact Binary HH

    • Abstract: The short-period solar-type contact binary HH Boo was monitored photometrically for about 8 years. It is found that the CCD light curves in the ,,, and bands obtained in 2010 are symmetric, while the multicolor light curves observed in 2011 and 2012 by several investigators showed a positive O’Connell effect where the maxima following the primary minima are higher than the other ones. This indicates that the light curve of the solar-type contact binary is variable. By analyzing our multicolor light curves with the Wilson-Devinney code (W-D code), it is confirmed that HH Boo is a W-type shallow-contact binary system with a mass ratio of = 1.703(31) and a degree of contact factor of = . By including 109 new determined times of light minimum together with those compiled from the literature, it is detected that the diagram shows a cyclic oscillation with a period of = 6.58(11) yr and an amplitude of = 0.0018 d. The cyclic change may reveal the presence of an extremely cool third body orbiting the central binary.

  • Initial Parameter Analysis about Resonant Orbits in Earth-Moon System

    • Abstract: The initial parameters about resonant orbits in the Earth-Moon system were investigated in this study. Resonant orbits with different ratios are obtained in the two-body problem and planar circular restricted three-body problem (i.e., PCRTBP). It is found that the eccentricity and initial phase are two important initial parameters of resonant orbits that affect the closest distance between the spacecraft and the Moon. Potential resonant transition or resonant flyby may occur depending on the possibility of the spacecraft approaching the Moon. Based on an analysis of ballistic capture and flyby, the Kepler energy and the planet’s perturbed gravitational sphere are used as criteria to establish connections between the initial parameters and the possible “steady” resonant orbits. The initial parameter intervals that can cause instability of the resonant orbits in the CRTBP are obtained. Examples of resonant orbits in 1:2 and 2:1 resonances are provided to verify the proposed criteria.

  • The XinJiang Astronomical Observatory NSRT Pulsar Data Archive

    • Abstract: The sensitivity of our pulsar observation system with typical integration time of 16 minutes has reached 0.4 mJy after we have upgraded the receiver cooling system of NanShan 25-m radio telescope (NSRT) at Xinjiang Astronomical Observatory (XAO) in 2002. About 280 pulsars were observed after the upgrade. The NanShan station pulsar data is transmitted to the data center at XAO headquarters via a 300Mb/s dedicated data link for long-term storage, and the remote backup is realized by synchronous data transmission between NanShan station and XAO headquarters. Metadata extraction, archiving, and releasing are completed by the data release servers which are located in XAO headquarters. At present, more than 84000 pulsar observation data files in the PSRFITS format have been released with a maximum file size of 1GB. XAO pulsar data online service provides cone search and multiobject constraint query. We have published our data based on Virtual Observatory (VO) standards. The online pulsar data service is registered in the International Virtual Observatory Alliance’s Registry. Users can access the data through common VO tools.

  • Tsallis Holographic Dark Energy with Granda-Oliveros Scale in
           ()-Dimensional FRW Universe

    • Abstract: Based on Tsallis holographic dark energy model recently proposed by using the general model of the Tsallis entropy expression, we reconstruct cosmographic parameters, , and we study their evolution in spatially flat ()-dimensional Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe using Granda-Oliveros scale. Our results show that the universe is in an accelerating expansion mode described by phantom-like behavior. We go further and study the state finder operators and the diagnostic to understand the behavior of our model. The stability of the system is also studied by using the square of speed of sound showing that our model is stable over the low range of red-shift considered. The results indicate that the entropy formalism will play an important role in understanding the dynamics of our universe.

  • Review of the Empirical Evidence for Superluminal Particles and the 3 + 3
           Model of the Neutrino Masses

    • Abstract: A review is given of hypothetical faster-than-light tachyons and the development of the author’s model of the neutrino mass states, which includes one tachyonic mass state doublet. Published empirical evidence for the model is summarized, including an interpretation of the mysterious Mont Blanc neutrino burst from SN 1987A as being due to tachyonic neutrinos having This possibility requires an 8 MeV antineutrino line from SN 1987A, which a new dark matter model has been found to support. Furthermore, this dark matter model is supported by several datasets: rays from the galactic center, and the Kamiokande-II neutrino data on the day of SN 1987A. The KATRIN experiment should serve as the unambiguous test of the model and its tachyonic mass state.

  • Long-Term Optical and Spectral Variability of FSRQ 3C454.3

    • Abstract: 3C454.3 is a widely studied and monitored flat spectrum radio quasar. We use the observations from the Small and Moderate Aperture Research Telescope System (SMARTS) to analyze the long-term optical and spectral variabilities of 3C454.3 at B, V, R, J, and K (BVRJK) bands. Based on the relation: , we calculate the multiband spectral indices () and analyze the relations between and , where is the flux density at band (=B, V, R, J, K). Main results are as follows. (1) The largest variations at BVRJK bands are B = 3.370.08 mag, with the timescale 1015 days, at B band; V = 3.310.07 mag, with the timescale 1014 days, at V band; R = 3.620.12 mag, with the timescale 679 days, at R band; J = 4.080.01 mag, with the timescale 763 days, at J band; and K = 5.030.03 mag, with the timescale 2715 days, at K band. (2) We analyze the long-term BVRJK lightcurves and obtain the quasiperiodicities: days, days, and years. (3) Multiband lightcurves show time delays: = days, = days, = days, and = days. (4) The relations between and show strong correlations, which are typical RWB behaviors; when the source turns to be brighter, the spectral indices turn to be redder.

  • Distribution Inference for Physical and Orbital Properties of
           Jupiter’s Moons

    • Abstract: According to the physical and orbital characteristics in Carme group, Ananke group, and Pasiphae group of Jupiter’s moons, the distributions of physical and orbital properties in these three groups are investigated by using one-sample Kolmogorov–Smirnov nonparametric test. Eight key characteristics of the moons are found to mainly obey the Birnbaum–Saunders distribution, logistic distribution, Weibull distribution, and t location-scale distribution. Furthermore, for the moons’ physical and orbital properties, the probability density curves of data distributions are generated; the differences of three groups are also demonstrated. Based on the inferred results, one can predict some physical or orbital features of moons with missing data or even new possible moons within a reasonable range. In order to better explain the feasibility of the theory, a specific example is illustrated. Therefore, it is helpful to predict some of the properties of Jupiter’s moons that have not yet been discovered with the obtained theoretical distribution inference.

  • Dynamo Theory, Nonlinear Magnetic Fields, and the Euler Potentials

    • Abstract: The debate on the role of Euler potentials (EP), , in the dynamo theory is a long-standing one. It is known that the cross-product of gradients of two the potentials may represent magnetic fields lines. However, 2D and 3D dynamo hydromagnetic simulations suggest that their utility as analogues of magnetic field potential is restricted. This raises questions about their utility in the broader context of magneto-genesis and dynamo theories. We reexamine this and find that a reinterpretation of such potentials offers a new insight into the role EP may play in the general evolution of magnetic fields.

  • Star Recognition Based on Path Optimization in Star Sensor with Multiple
           Fields of View

    • Abstract: Star sensors make use of astronomical information in stars to determine attitude for spacecrafts by star image recognition. For low-cost star sensors with small field of view, fusion of observed images from multiple fields of view is performed and a novel recognition algorithm based on path optimization by randomly distributed ant colony is proposed. According to pheromone intensity, the ant colony can autonomously figure out a close optimal path without starting or ending point, rather than certifying a starting point first. Feature patterns extracted from the optimal path in guiding template and observed image after fusion are compared to perform star recognition. By the proposed algorithm, starting point for path optimization has no influence on the extracted feature pattern. Thus the star recognition rate is improved due to the higher stability of the extracted pattern. Simulations indicate that the algorithm improves recognition accuracy and robustness against noise for sensors with multiple fields of view.

  • A Novel Scanning Method Applied to New-Style Solar Telescope Based on
           Autoguiding System

    • Abstract: To expand field of view (FOV) of telescope, the method of special scanning often is used, but, for some telescopes with special structure in optics and machine, the conventional scanning methods are unsuitable. This paper proposes a novel scanning method based on autoguiding system so as to expand the FOV of fiber array solar optical telescope (FASOT) in possession of the special structure in optics and machine. Meanwhile, corresponding experiments are conducted in the FASOT prototype, FASOT-1B, in order to demonstrate that, for both FASOT and FASOT-1B, the proposed scanning method is feasible. First of all, on the basis of the software and hardware characteristics of FASOT and FASOT-1B, the three key technologies related to the proposed scanning method are described: quickly locating and pointing the first scanning step, the closed-loop controlling of multistep scanning, and the disturbance suppression of every scanning step based on Kalman filter. Afterwards, experiments are conducted and corresponding results show that the proposed scanning method is robust for the random disturbances forced on every scanning step and able to meet the scanning requirement of both FASOT and FASOT-1B .

  • High-Precision Heading Determination Based on the Sun for Mars Rover

    • Abstract: Since the American Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity landed on Mars in 2004, it has travelled more than 40 km, and heading-determination technology based on its sun sensor has played an important role in safe driving of the rover. A high-precision heading-determination method will always play a significant role in the rover’s autonomous navigation system, and the precision of the measured heading strongly affects the navigation results. In order to improve the heading precision to the 1-arcminute level, this paper puts forward a novel calibration algorithm for solving the comparable distortion of large-field sun sensor by introducing an antisymmetric matrix. The sun sensor and inclinometer alignment model are then described in detail to maintain a high-precision horizon datum, and a strict sun image centroid-extraction algorithm combining subpixel edge detection with circle or ellipse fitting is presented. A prototype comprising a sun sensor, electronic inclinometer, and chip-scale atomic clock is developed for testing the algorithms, models, and methods presented in this paper. Three field tests were conducted in different months during 2017. The results show that the precision of the heading determination reaches 0.28–0.97′ (1σ) and the centroid error of the sun image and the sun elevation are major factors that affect the heading precision.

  • Improving the Accuracy of the Martian Ephemeris Short-Term Prediction

    • Abstract: The Chinese Mars exploration mission is planned to be launched in 2020, which includes an orbiter, a lander, and a rover. High precision Martian ephemeris is very important in Mars exploration, especially for the Martian orbit insertion and the Martian lander/rover landing. In this paper, we used simulation data to analyze the short-term prediction accuracy of the Martian ephemeris. The simulation results show that the accuracy of Mars position is expected to be better than 50 m for 180-day prediction, when 90-150 days’ range measurements are used to estimate the orbit of the Mars. Range bias affects the prediction accuracy and the arc length for estimation is limited. The prediction accuracy will improve with higher orbit, and the orbit error of probes has an obvious effect on the prediction accuracy of the Martian ephemeris.

  • A New Lunar DEM Based on the Calibrated Chang’E-1 Laser Altimeter

    • Abstract: To improve the lunar DEM accuracy derived from CE-1 altimeter data, CE-1 laser altimeter data are calibrated in this paper. Orbit accuracy and ranging accuracy are the two most important factors to affect the application of altimeter data in the lunar topography. An empirical method is proposed to calibrate CE-1 altimeter data, using gridded LOLA DEM to correct systematic errors of CE-1 altimeter data, and the systematic bias is about -139.52 m. A new lunar DEM grid model based on calibrated CE-1 altimeter data with the spatial resolution of 0.0625°  × 0.0625° is obtained as well as a spherical harmonic model at 1400th order. Furthermore, the DEM accuracy is assessed through the comparison with the nearside landmarks of the Moon, and the results show that the DEM accuracy is improved from 127.3 m to 48.7 m after the calibration of laser altimeter data.

  • Poisson Denoising for Astronomical Images

    • Abstract: A denoising scheme for astronomical color images/videos corrupted with Poisson noise is proposed. The scheme employs the concept of Exponential Principal Component Analysis and sparsity of image patches. The color space RGB is converted to YCbCr and -means++ clustering is applied on luminance component only. The cluster centers are used for chromatic components to improve the computational efficiency. For videos, the information of both spatial and temporal correlations improves the denoising. Simulation results verify the significance of proposed scheme in both visual and quantitative manner.

  • Gamma-Ray Burst Prompt Correlations

    • Abstract: The mechanism responsible for the prompt emission of gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) is still a debated issue. The prompt phase-related GRB correlations can allow discriminating among the most plausible theoretical models explaining this emission. We present an overview of the observational two-parameter correlations, their physical interpretations, and their use as redshift estimators and possibly as cosmological tools. The nowadays challenge is to make GRBs, the farthest stellar-scaled objects observed (up to redshift ), standard candles through well established and robust correlations. However, GRBs spanning several orders of magnitude in their energetics are far from being standard candles. We describe the advances in the prompt correlation research in the past decades, with particular focus paid to the discoveries in the last 20 years.
