Testing fundamental physics and constraining astrophysics with the Bullet Cluster Merger

Dark Matter

  • H-Dibaryon -- DM candidate within QCD

  • Lattice gauge theory calculation of H-dibaryon mass


Cosmic Ray Deflections and Propagation


Galactic Magnetic Field & Galactic cosmic rays

  • Jansson-Farrar 2012 regular and random fields

  • Work-in-progress

    • Phase-2 of GMF modeling

    • anisotropies of Galactic cosmic rays

    • n_cre model in collaboration with DRAGON

    • coherence length of GMF turbulence

    • impact and interpretation of striated magnetic field

  • Mock Catalogs of UHECRs and their sources

    We provide realistic mock-catalogs of cosmic rays above 40 EeV, for a pure proton composition, assuming their sources are a random subset of ordinary galaxies in a simulated, volume-limited survey, the catalogs described herein are available for downloading from http://cosmo.nyu.edu/mockUHECR.html.

SENECA

SENECA is a cosmic ray air shower simulation code, which uses cascade equations to speed up the computation.

NYSCPT

NYSCPT -- The New York Schools Cosmic Particle Telescope Project aims to create a next-generation astrophysical observatory in New York City, distributed among hundreds or thousands of schools and other sites.
