Knowledge of the precise rigidity dependence of the helium flux is important in understanding the origin, acceleration, and propagation of cosmic rays. A precise measurement of the helium flux in primary cosmic rays with rigidity (momentum/charge) from 1.9 GV to 3 TV based on 50 million events is presented and compared to the proton flux. The detailed variation with rigidity of the helium flux spectral index is presented for the first time. The spectral index progressively hardens at rigidities larger than 100 GV. The rigidity dependence of the helium flux spectral index is similar to that of the proton spectral index though the magnitudes are different. Remarkably, the spectral index of the proton to helium flux ratio increases with rigidity up to 45 GV and then becomes constant; the flux ratio above 45 GV is well described by a single power law.

Precision Measurement of the Boron to Carbon Flux Ratio in Cosmic Rays from 1.9 GV to 2.6 TV with the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station
AGUILAR, M.; et. al. (American Physical Society (APS), 2016-11-28)
Knowledge of the rigidity dependence of the boron to carbon flux ratio (B/C) is important in understanding the propagation of cosmic rays. The precise measurement of the B/C ratio from 1.9 GV to 2.6 TV, based on 2.3 million boron and 8.3 million carbon nuclei collected by AMS during the first 5 years of operation, is presented. The detailed variation with rigidity of the B/C spectral index is reported for the first time. The B/C ratio does not show any significant structures in contrast to many cosmic ray m...
Precision Measurement of the Proton Flux in Primary Cosmic Rays from Rigidity 1 GV to 1.8 TV with the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer on the International Space Station
Aguilar, M.; et. al. (2015-04-30)
A precise measurement of the proton flux in primary cosmic rays with rigidity (momentum/charge) from 1 GV to 1.8 TV is presented based on 300 million events. Knowledge of the rigidity dependence of the proton flux is important in understanding the origin, acceleration, and propagation of cosmic rays. We present the detailed variation with rigidity of the flux spectral index for the first time. The spectral index progressively hardens at high rigidities
Energy distribution in Reissner-Nordstrom anti-de Sitter black holes in the Moller prescription
Salti, M.; Aydogdu, O. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-07-01)
The energy (due to matter plus fields including gravity) distribution of the Reissner-Nordstrom anti-de Sitter (RN AdS) black holes is studied by using the Moller energy-momentum definition in general relativity. This result is compared with the energy expression obtained by using the Einstein and Tolman complexes. The total energy depends on the black hole mass M and charge Q and the cosmological constant A. The energy distribution of the RN AdS is also calculated by using the M phi ller prescription in te...
Determining the asymmetry in supernova explosions by studying the radial velocities of OB runaway stars
Dinçel, Baha; Yerli, Sinan Kaan; Ankay, Aşkın; Department of Physics (2012)
Understanding the asymmetry in core collapse supernova explosions is pointed out by various astrophysicists as it is the key factor in determining the observational properties of the pulsars. The initial kick given by the ex- plosion to the pulsar affects its spin period and space velocity. Up to now, although the observations do not show a direct relation between the observational features of the pulsar and its space velocity, they show a clear relation between the spin period and the magnetic field streng...
Higher dimensional metrics of colliding gravitational plane waves
Gurses, M; Kahya, EO; Karasu, Atalay (2002-07-15)
We give a higher even dimensional extension of vacuum colliding gravitational plane waves with the combinations of collinear and noncollinear polarized four-dimensional metrics. The singularity structure of space-time depends on the parameters of the solution.
