Medicinal plants in an urban environment: the medicinal flora of Banares Hindu University, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh.  

PubMed

Varanasi is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities of the world, and one of the most important Hindu pilgrimage sites. Despite this importance, very little information exits on the cities flora in general, and medicinal species found within its limit in particular. Traditional medicine plays a large role in Indian society. The presented study attempted to investigate if traditional plant use and availability of important common medicinal plants are maintained in urban environments. The paper presents information on the traditional uses of seventy-two plant species collected form the campus of Banares Hindu University, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, and highlights the uses of these plants by the local inhabitants.

A part of life. The Hindu view.  

PubMed

A leading social anthropologist and founder of the Center for Advanced Studies in Sociology at Delhi University presents a Hindu view on teachings about birth and population control. The article states that Hinduism accepts the sacred scriptures of the "shruti" whom are respected authorities revealed by God to man and the "smrities" which are divine recollections of revealed truth. Shruti have greater authority, and divine works include the vedas or hymns of the Indo-Aryans to their gods. Dharma shastras are smriti and provide legal opinion on religion and social matters. Learned men interpret these scriptures for the common people. The Hindu scriptures do not mention anything contrary to birth control. Sex is an accepted way of life without prudery. Householdership is said to be one of the universal stages of life. The Kama Sutra, written by Vatsyayana in the early fourth century, and other works digress on the celebration of love. Human lovemaking is celebrated in panels appearing in the Khajuraho temples in Madhya Pradesh and in temple chariots in south India. Ayurvedic medicine and literature on erotics explains many devices for preventing conception. High Hindu castes are reported in this article as placing great emphasis on patrilineage and the need for sons to continue the male line. Adoption or limiting family size to 1-2 children is resorted to when there is no apparent male heir. This emphasis on sons contributes to female infanticide and neglect of daughters. The belief in "karma" or reincarnation was once considered to be antagonistic to the practice of contraception and birth control. Education and literacy have increased the acceptance of modern contraception. Awareness of population growth as a potential problem is prevalent among educated Hindus. The government of Mysore was the first in the world to establish a birth control clinic. The National Planning Committee of the Indian National Congress advocated family planning and birth limiting since 1935. PMID:12345274

Hindu and Buddhist children, adolescents, and families.  

PubMed

The language of psychotherapy that focuses on the individual may be problematic for Hindu and Buddhist families. The focus on child and adolescent development as a separation-individuation process that moves the child into an independent life with individual goals may run contrary to family cultural values and to the Hindu and Buddhist views of interconnectedness. For the Hindu family, however, when therapy can be seen as being compatible with an evolution toward the higher self and is consistent with the shared sense of family belonging, the goals can be complementary. With the fundamental views in Buddhism that suffering derives from emotional and conceptual misunderstandings and from the resultant actions, and that change is necessary to relieve that suffering, therapy and practice may share goals. The spiritual teachings can work alongside the therapeutic work, and the improved functioning is also spiritual growth. PMID:14723309

Ischiopagus and diprosopus in India: two pairs of conjoined twins perceived as incarnations of Hindu deities.  

PubMed

This article briefly reviews two specific types of conjoined twins, ischiopagus and diprosopus, and discusses recent cases of such twins born in India. Some members of the Hindu community worshiped these conjoined twins as incarnations of Hindu deities. In discussing this phenomenon, the authors aim to elucidate certain features of the faith tradition of Hinduism itself. The reception of these conjoined twins as incarnations of Hindu deities can be understood by examining two salient features of Hindu polytheism: the pictorial depiction of Hindu deities with multiple appendages and the concept of an incarnation, or avatar, of a Hindu deity.

Morality and moral development: Traditional Hindu concepts  

PubMed Central

Morality (from the Latin word moralitas that means “manner, character, proper behavior”) is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are good (or right) and those that are bad (or wrong). It is determined by how one's genetic makeup interacts with the environment. The development of morality has been a subject of investigation for a number of decades, and our understanding of neuro-biological and psychological mechanisms has increased manifolds in the last few decades. Development of morality has been of particular significance to psychiatric literature because of its significant contribution to the development of one's personality and it's aberration in various disorders. Cultures that have been just, equal and moral have been widely accepted and appreciated. In this review, we shall summarize the modern theories of moral development and then look into a part of our past and cultural heritage and review the traditional Hindu concepts of morality and their contribution to development of one's personality and their relevance in the current times.

'The History of Hindu Chemistry' is one of the rare, important books published in twentieth century. Sir Prafulla Chandra Ray, the author of this book, who was a chemist by profession, has contributed greatly to the field of Rasashastra in his own style. The book in two volumes is in English and has achieved international recognition. The work became the cause of enlightening people specially, the Westerners about Indian Alchemy which, they were till then unaware of. In a way, 'globalization' of the concepts of Rasashastra has its starting point in the works of Sir P.C.Ray. The author has touched almost every area of Rasashastra of course, from the standpoint of modern Chemistry.

End-of-Life Care Beliefs Among Hindu Physicians in the United States.  

PubMed

Several studies from the United States and Europe showed that physicians' religiosity is associated with their approach to end-of-life care beliefs. No such studies have focused exclusively on Hindu physicians practicing in the United States. A 34-item questionnaire was sent to 293 Hindu physicians in the United States. Most participants believed that their religious beliefs do not influence their practice of medicine and do not interfere with withdrawal of life support. The US practice of discussing end-of-life issues with the patient, rather than primarily with the family, seems to have been adopted by Hindu physicians practicing in the United States. It is likely that the ethical, cultural, and patient-centered environment of US health care has influenced the practice of end-of-life care by Hindu physicians in this country. PMID:24052431

Hindu Responses to Darwinism: Assimilation and Rejection in a Colonial and Post-Colonial Context  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Hindu responses to Darwinism, like Christian, have run the gamut from outright rejection to fairly robust but limited accommodations of the Darwinian perspective. Despite certain features of Hindu thought such as the enormous time-scales of traditional cosmogonies that may suggest considerable affinity with modern notions of organic evolution, more often than not traditional assumptions have worked against deep engagement with Darwinism, allowing only for superficial assimilation at best. Three fundamental factors have affected Hindu responses to Darwinism: the great diversity within the tradition spanning evolutionist and creationist perspectives, the encounter with Darwinism in the late nineteenth century as part of an alien culture, and the fact that this encounter occurred within a colonial context. This essay explores the complex interactions of these three factors, beginning with the diversity within the ancient and classical cosmological traditions, followed by consideration of colonial developments and the emergence of four representative Hindu approaches to Darwinism: Modern Vedic Evolutionism, Anthropic Vedic Evolutionism, Reactionary Vedic Evolutionism, and Modern Vedic Creationism. The essay concludes by discussing various epistemological issues in the attempts of modern Hindu apologists to legitimize Vedic world views. These issues include the appeal to modern science to confirm traditional ideals and values, while simultaneously subordinating scientific method to spiritual means of knowledge, or rejecting scientific methodology with its inbuilt skepticism entirely.

Magmatism and metamorphism linked to the accretion of continental blocks south of the Hindu Kush, Afghanistan  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Metamorphic basement rocks in the southern part of the Western Hindu Kush at contact with the Kabul and Helmand crustal blocks were investigated to elucidate pressure-temperature variation and relative time relations among different metamorphic rocks. The rocks are represented by Proterozoic amphibolite facies para-/orthogneisses and migmatites with low-grade Paleozoic volcano-sedimentary sequences. Major- and trace-element geochemistry from two orthogneiss bodies and geochronological data, including new SHRIMP analyses on zircon from one of these bodies shows that they are derived from granitic rocks that related to two different magmatic arcs of Triassic and Cretaceous ages. The Triassic granites are common in the Western Hindu Kush where they intrude basement units; the Cretaceous granitic belt crosses the Afghan Central blocks south of the Hindu Kush Mountains. Three different metamorphic events have been distinguished in the southern part of Western Hindu Kush. Based on an unconformity between basement units and Carboniferous cover sequences, the first two amphibolite and greenschist facies metamorphic events are Proterozoic and Pre-Carboniferous in age respectively. The third metamorphism was recognized in Triassic and Cretaceous granitic rocks near to contact with the Kabul Block. It is of Eocene age and reached medium pressure amphibolite facies conditions. This event is genetically linked to the collision of India and Eurasia which produced a series of trans-Afghan Central block magmatic arcs and crustal scale deformation.

Evidence for deeply subducting Asian lithosphere beneath the Pamir-Hindu Kush region from lithospheric imaging  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Pamir-Hindu Kush region, located north of the western Himalayan syntaxis, remains one of the most puzzling regions in the Indian-Eurasian collision system. In contrast to the Himalaya and Tibet, the Pamir and Hindu Kush feature a narrow, curved zone of intense intermediate depth seismicity, reaching depths greater than 250 km. The Pamir seismicity has been linked to subduction of Eurasian lithosphere. The origin of the material hosting the Hindu Kush earthquakes as well as their relation to the Pamir seismic zone is still a topic of debate. Here we present results from a teleseismic tomography that puts new constraints on the deep structure of this region. We use teleseismic P-wave travel times of approx. 800 earthquakes recorded by 180 seismic stations of several temporary networks (mainly TIPAGE, FERGHANA, and TIPTIMON) that were deployed between 2008 to 2013 and cover significant parts of the western Tien Shan, Pamir and Hindu Kush. In total about 35.000 P-wave travel time residuals are inverted for P-wave velocity perturbation. Beneath the Pamir, our velocity model images an arcuate, slab-like high velocity structure, coinciding with the seismogenic plane at the upper level. In the eastern Pamir the high velocity structure does not extend much deeper than the local seismicity but in the south-western Pamir, the structure can be traced to the bottom of the transition zone at about 600 km, indicating the presence of dense, cold Eurasian lithosphere at much greater depths than the depth extent of the seismicity would suggest. The stress regime derived from source mechanisms of intermediate depth earthquakes suggests that the current driving force, pulling the Pamir slab down seems to be this seismically fast body deep in the mantle. In contrast to the Pamir, the Hindu Kush seismicity does not occur clearly connected to a high velocity structure, but to near average or even low velocities. However a fast anomaly is imaged just below the deepest Hindu Kush earthquakes. The down-dip extensional stress regime governing these earthquakes indicates that the deep, high velocity body is probably not completely detached so that it can still pull on the shallower structure where the earthquakes are occurring. The Hindu Kush fast anomaly merges at depth with the deepest part of the Pamir slab but both structures are clearly separated at shallower levels. This configuration as well as the common stress regime that drives the Pamir and Hindu Kush earthquakes cannot be easily reconciled with a purely (Greater)India origin of the Hindu Kush earthquakes and mantle anomaly. Nevertheless, it would allow two possible scenarios regarding the tectonic history of the region: either the Pamir and Hindu Kush form two separated down-going structures which only converge at depth or that both anomalies have been connected in the past also at shallower levels but later were torn apart e.g. by a salient in the advancing Indian indenter.

Evidence for deeply subducting Asian lithosphere beneath the Pamir-Hindu Kush region from teleseismic tomography  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Pamir - Hindu Kush mountain ranges are located north of the western syntax of the Indian-Eurasian collision system. The Pamir has been displaced at least 300 km to the north relative to Tibet based on e.g. the correlation of the offsets of major tectonic structures. The Pamir hosts a peculiar south-dipping intermediate depth (~80-250 km depth) earthquake zone that has been linked to subduction of Eurasian lithosphere. Under the Hindu Kush deep earthquakes also occur in steeply dipping compact and very active cluster. The Pamir and Hindu Kush seismic zones abut at the shallowest level, just below the Moho, but are clearly separated by a seismic gap deeper down. However, their structural connection, formation history and provenience are still puzzling. Here, we use teleseismic P-wave travel times from three temporary seismic networks and additional permanent seismic stations covering a significant part of the central Asian mountain zone for a regional tomography to illuminate their deep structure. Utilizing approx. 800 earthquakes at epicentral distances between 25 to 95 degree recorded from mid-2008 until now at more than 160 regional stations. Because the Hindu Kush in NE Afghanistan has no station coverage, we take advantage of station-receiver reciprocity, and supplement our data set with frequently occurring Hindu Kush earthquakes, recorded at teleseismic stations, there. For this purpose we extracted travel times for about 400 well located earthquakes between 1970 and 2006 from a global catalog. In the resulting tomographic model, the Pamir and the western Hindu-Kush are underlain by high velocity zones (HVZ) at shallow mantle depths. A pronounced low velocity anomaly separates both features. At depths below 300 to 400 km this low velocity zone diminishes allowing the regions of high velocity to connect beneath the Hindu-Kush. Associated with this, the orientation of the Pamir high velocity structure changes to be aligned in west-east direction at depths of 600 km. The shallow Pamir HVZ is connected to this deep structure only at its westernmost tip. The shape and orientation of these different high-velocity fragments suggest that they were once connected. As the Pamir started to shift towards the north, the already then southward subducting lithosphere was stretched and eventually started to break at the points where the stress was most intense or the lithosphere was weakest. Considering the high velocity anomalies in our model, the lithosphere could have ruptured at the transition between Pamir and Hindu-Kush and at depth in the eastern Pamir near its boundary with Tarim. If this assumption is true, it would possibly imply a longer history of one-sided lithospheric subduction in the Pamir-Hindu Kush region than was thought before, to account for the whole length of the imaged high velocity structures.

Seismic Anisotropy and Mantle Deformation beneath the Hindu Kush-Pamir Mountains and the Tadjik Basin  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

With the goal of measuring seismic anisotropy and understanding mantle deformation at the western edge of the India-Eurasia collision zone, we measured shear-wave splitting in local S and teleseismic SKS/SKKS phases recorded by six stations of the Tajikistan National Seismic Network distributed in the Hindu Kush and Pamir mountains and the Tadjik Basin, which lies to their west. The Hindu Kush/Pamir seismic zone, with hypocenters as deep as 280 km, offers an unusual opportunity to resolve the distribution of anisotropy with depth using shear-wave splitting in a continental interior. Local S splitting times from earthquakes at depths of 90 to 268 km range from 0.13-0.62 s with an average of 0.32 s. Local S fast polarizations from phases that sample the mantle beneath the Hindu Kush mountains are aligned predominantly 45 - 60 E of N, roughly parallel to the strike of the mountains. In contrast, local S phases sampling the Tadjik Basin west of the Hindu Kush, produce fast polarizations at 90 - 150 degrees E of N. Teleseismic phase delay times are larger, ranging from 0.7-2.1 s. Teleseismic fast polarizations are 60 - 80 degrees E of N, except at the westernmost station in the Tadjik Basin where fast polarizations are 0 - 30 degrees E of N. Prior tomography studies indicate that local S paths primarily sample lithosphere. Local S polarizations for paths in Hindu Kush lithosphere are consistent with olivine lattice preferred orientation produced by upper plate compression due to India-Eurasia convergence. Local S fast polarizations from paths in Tadjik Basin lithosphere suggest a rotation of the orientation of lithospheric deformation between this region and the Hindu Kush, and they are not obviously consistent with the direction of recent shortening in the basin. Differences between teleseismic and local S splitting measurements are evidence for significant anisotropy in the asthenosphere and deep lithosphere. SKS/SKKS fast polarizations are in general consistent with the orientation of asthenospheric shear that would be predicted by plate motion in a no-net rotation reference frame. However, the more northerly teleseismic fast polarizations in the western Tadjik Basin suggest either a rotation in asthenospheric flow or very strong lithospheric anisotropy with north-oriented olivine a-axes.

Exploring Hindu Indian emotion expressions: evidence for accurate recognition by Americans and Indians.  

PubMed

Subjects were presented with videotaped expressions of 10 classic Hindu emotions. The 10 emotions were (in rough translation from Sanskrit) anger, disgust, fear, heroism, humor-amusement, love, peace, sadness, shame-embarrassment, and wonder. These emotions (except for shame) and their portrayal were described about 2,000 years ago in the Natyasastra, and are enacted in the contemporary Hindu classical dance. The expressions are dynamic and include both the face and the body, especially the hands. Three different expressive versions of each emotion were presented, along with 15 neutral expressions. American and Indian college students responded to each of these 45 expressions using either a fixed-response format (10 emotion names and "neutral/no emotion") or a totally free response format. Participants from both countries were quite accurate in identifying emotions correctly using both fixed-choice (65% correct, expected value of 9%) and free-response (61% correct, expected value close to zero) methods.

Death beliefs and practices from an Asian Indian American Hindu perspective.  

PubMed

The purpose of this article was to explore Asian Indian American Hindu (AIAH) cultural views related to death and dying. Three focus group interviews were conducted with AIAH persons living in the southern region of United States. The focus group consisted of senior citizens, middle-aged adults, and young adults. Both open-ended and semistructured questions were asked to elicit discussions that would uncover the meanings respondents attribute to death, as well as their pre- and post-death practices. All the sessions were tape recorded. Two independent researchers examined the transcripts of the 3 sessions and generated common themes. The results of this qualitative study indicate that all 3 generations were believers in the afterlife and the karmic philosophy. However, they exhibited differences in the degree to which Hindu traditions surrounding death and bereavement have been influenced by the fact that they live in the United States. Implications for service providers are included. PMID:24501845

Experiences in Sport, Physical Activity, and Physical Education Among Christian, Buddhist, and Hindu Asian Adolescent Girls  

PubMed Central

Multicultural scholarship in sport and exercise psychology should help us understand and apply cultural competencies for all to be physically active. In the present study, two Asian countries, Japan and Singapore, were chosen. The participation rate for physical activities among adolescent girls tends to be lower than that of boys in both countries. Thus, the purpose of the project was to gain knowledge and understanding about sociocultural factors that may explain adolescent girls' perceptions and behaviors toward sport, physical activity, and physical education (PE). A qualitative approach using semi-structured interviews with focus groups was used to understand meanings of physical activity among Buddhist Japanese, and Hindu Indians and Christian Chinese from Singapore. Each focus group consisted of four or five girls and female researchers. Based on the analysis, we created four themes which were "cultural identities," "Asian girls and sport/physical activities," "PE experiences," "motivation for future involvement." The Buddhist Japanese, Hindu Indian, and Christian Chinese participants each reported unique physical activity experiences, and all the participants were aware of how Asian culture may affect being physically active. Experiences of PE classes were similar but perceptions of their PE attire were different for Christian Chinese and Hindu Indian adolescent girls. Based on the results, the importance of nurturing cultural competencies and ways to encourage girls to be physically active throughout life were discussed. PMID:23412952

Kinematics of the Pamir and Hindu Kush regions from GPS geodesy  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

GPS velocities measured in the Pamir and surrounding regions show a total of ~25 mm/yr of northward relative motion between stable Pakistan and Eurasia. The convergence budget is partitioned into 10-15 mm/yr of localized shortening across the Trans-Alai Thrust, which bounds the Pamir on the north, where southward subduction of intact lithosphere seems to occur. Another 10-15 mm/yr of shortening is distributed across the Chitral Himalaya and Hindu Kush, suggesting that Hindu Kush seismicity might be related to subduction of Indian lithosphere. Modest shortening at <5 mm/yr occurs north of the Trans-Alai Thrust, across the South Tien Shan and between the Ferghana Valley and Eurasia. As much as 5 mm/yr, and perhaps 10 mm/yr, of east-west extension occurs within the Pamir, and is matched by a comparable amount of east-west shortening in the Tajik Depression. The localization of shortening to the margins of the Pamir combined with observations of distributed internal extension implies that the east-west vertically averaged, horizontal compressive normal stress is smaller than the north-south compressive perhaps because material from the elevated Pamir is free to move into the low-elevation Tajik Depression and Tarim Basin.

Muslim and Hindu Women's public and private behaviors: gender, family, and communalized politics in India.  

PubMed

Prior research on fundamentalist religious movements has focused attention on the complicated relationship among gender, family, and religion. Using data from a nationally representative survey of 30,000 Hindu and Muslim women, this study compares the daily public and private behaviors of women in India to examine how gender and family norms are shaped in the context of communalized identity politics. Building on the theoretical framework of "doing gender," we argue that because communal identities are expressed through externally visible behaviors, greater religious differences are expected in external markers of gendered behaviors and family norms. Results indicate that Muslim women are more likely to engage in veiling and less likely to venture outside the home for recreation and employment. However, religious differences are absent when attention is directed at private behaviors, such as household decision-making power, gender segregation within households, and discrimination against daughters. Results underscore the multidimensionality of gender. PMID:25143018

Anasakti, a Sanskrit term for traits like non-attachment, equipoise, selfless duty orientation, and effort in the absence of concern for the outcome, can be regarded as a Hindu-ideal cluster of personality traits. The relationship of Anasakti with well-being and the three distinct happiness orientations was explored through a study of 676 college students and a sample of 65 yogic practitioners in India. The findings revealed that the yogic practitioners were markedly higher in Anasakti than the secular population. For the yogic population, there was a large correlation between Anasakti and the Orientation to Meaningful Life, and it accounted for more than 20% of the variance in the regression of Anasakti against all the measures of well-being. The yogic population's scores also correlated with several other measures of well-being. The scores of the secular population were less strongly related to the well-being scores; though, several correlation coefficients were statistically significant. PMID:20953711

Seismicity of the Pamir and Hindu Kush: new constraints on regional tectonics  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Pamir and Hindu Kush regions in Central Asia host the most active zone of intracontinental seismic activity at intermediate depths (up to nearly 300km) in the world, which is still poorly understood in terms of its detailed structure and, most importantly, its origin. Being situated far from any typical subduction zone setting and displaying a change in its polarity along strike, this seismically active zone has been interpreted in numerous ways, e.g. as a single slab of Indian lithosphere originally subducted northwards which was subsequently overturned in its eastern part or as two adjacent subduction zones of opposing polarity. Several key questions concerning this region, among them the nature of subducted material (oceanic or continental?), the mechanism behind the generation of these intermediate-depth earthquakes and the region's tectonic framework have not been answered as of yet. As the seismological subpart of the TIPAGE project, we deployed a network of 40 seismometer stations for a total duration of two years (2008-2010) in Tajikistan and southern Kyrgyzstan, covering the Pamir mountains and surroundings. Complemented with two more temporary deployments and additional data from several permanent networks in adjacent areas, this constitutes a seismic dataset of unprecedented station density for this part of Central Asia. Showing the distribution of more than 9,500 earthquakes located with a highly precise double-difference method based on the cross-correlation of individual traces, fault plane solutions for shallow and deep earthquakes as well as preliminary results from traveltime tomography, we can resolve the exact geometry of the deep seismic zone and draw further constraints on the tectonic processes active in the region. The S-shaped region of intermediate-depth seismicity is clearly subdivided into two separate parts, hence termed Hindu Kush and Pamir seismic zones. The Hindu Kush seismic zone strikes due east-west at a latitude of about 36.4°N. Depth sections show that earthquakes extend from depths of 50 to around 250 km along a planar, steeply northward-dipping structure. Earthquakes are most frequent in the depth range from 180 to 220 km, whereas there is a seismic "gap" at about 150 km depth. Intriguingly, the Hindu Kush seismic zone features a small-scale reversal of dip polarity in its lower part (beneath the 150km gap) towards its eastern termination. The Pamir seismic zone forms an arc, the strike of which varies by 90 degrees from north-south at its southwestern end (where it borders the Hindu Kush seismic zone) to east-west at its eastern termination. The dip direction of the structure changes from due east to due south from west to east. Seismic activity outlines a narrow (10-15 km) Wadati-Benioff zone displaying a constant dip of about 50 degrees all along its extent. Whereas seismic activity ceases at depths of 130-150 km in the east, the south-western part of the zone shows earthquakes reaching depths of up to 240 km that outline a vertical structure beneath 150 km depth. All along the arc, the upper termination of seismic activity is found at depths of 60-80 km, leaving a gap to shallow seismic activity which is confined to the uppermost 20-25 km. Intermediate-depth earthquakes in the eastern Pamir and the low-velocity zone they are situated within can be linked with shallow seismic activity along the Main Pamir Thrust (MPT) further north, which implies ongoing intracontinental southward subduction, presumably of continental material, in the Alai Valley. Tracing the surface expression of the deep earthquakes along the Pamir arc, towards the southwest, proves complicated. It is possible that the western part of the Pamir seismic zone is linked to the ongoing east-west compression in the Tajik Depression seen by GPS, but evidence is scarce. Shallow seismic activity concentrates along the Pamir's northern rim (MPT) and in its western part, wheras the eastern Pamir is seismically quiet. Fault-plane solutions obtained by moment tensor inversion show predominance of sinistral st

Complex deformation pattern of the Pamir-Hindu Kush region inferred from multi-scale double-difference earthquake relocations  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The wide range of focal depths and the corresponding fault plane mechanisms in the Pamir-Hindu Kush region are believed to reflect the ongoing deformation along the Indian-Eurasian continental collision zone. Here we develop a multi-scale double-difference earthquake location algorithm to combine traveltime data recorded at local, regional and teleseismic distances. The 2906 relocated intermediate-depth earthquakes of MW ? 4.5 we studied beneath the Hindu Kush show two groups of seismicity, with a separation of ca. 20-30 km; these two groups exhibit thrust faults with different P-axes and different locations, reflecting the lateral geometry change of the seismic zone. Earthquakes beneath the Pamir present a clear south-dipping layer and unusual horizontal T-axes. There is a clear transition in direction of stress between the Hindu Kush and the Pamir regions. Here we focus on the complex deformation pattern beneath the continental collision zone arising from a combination of compression, tension, shearing and necking states.

The Status of Glaciers in the Hindu Kush-Himalayas from satellite data  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In contrary to general glacier retreat in this vast Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) region, some of the glaciers are advancing in the Karakorum (Hewitt, 1985). To understand the climate change impacts on glaciers, it is crucial to update the glacier status. The bigger concern in the HKH region, however, is the lack of long-term information on glaciers at the regional level for any kind of credible baseline or assessment of change. Hence to provide the up to date glacier information the glacier inventory was carried out using a single source satellite images of latest date so far possible. The present mapping of glaciers is the first effort of homogeneous glacier inventory of entire Hindu Kush-Himalayan region, which made the first time reporting of glaciers from Myanmar and first generation of glacier mapping and inventory of Afghanistan and Jammu & Kashmir and Arunachal states of India for ICIMOD. For Nepal, Bhutan, Pakistan, some states of India (Himachal, Uttarakhand and Sikkim) and Ganges basin in China will be the second generation glacier mapping and inventory of ICIMOD. The inventory is based on Landsat 7 ETM+ satellite images from 2005±3 years and SRTM DEM. The methodology of semi-automatic mapping and inventory is developed and implemented in the present study for quick delivery of glacier database. A first attempt is also made to map and deliver the Clean Ice and Debris Cover glaciers data separately. The glacier parameters like Glacier ID (Watershed and GLIMS), Area (Debris Cover and Clean Ice), Elevation, Slope, Aspect, Thickness, Ice reserve and 100m Glacier Area-Altitude bins are generated. The glaciers with sizes larger than 0.02 km2 are mapped. From the entire HKH region about 54,800 glaciers are mapped with about 60,400 km2 glacier area and 6,100 km3 estimated ice reserves. It was found that the average glacier area of the HKH region is 1.10 km2 per glacier (Bajracharya and others 2011).

The Hindu Kush Himalayan (HKH) region is the source of ten large Asian river systems - the Amu Darya, Indus, Ganges, Brahmaputra (Yarlungtsanpo), Irrawaddy, Salween (Nu), Mekong (Lancang), Yangtse (Jinsha), Yellow River (Huanghe), and Tarim (Dayan), - and provides water, ecosystem services, and the basis for livelihoods to a population of around 0.2 billion people in the region. The river basins of these rivers provide water to 1.3 billion people, a fifth of the world's population. Against this background, a comprehensive river basin program having current focus on the Koshi and Indus basins is launched at the International Center for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) as a joint scientific endeavour of several participating institutions from four regional countries of the HKH region. The river basin approach aims is to maximize the economic and social benefits derived from water resources in an equitable manner while conserving and, where necessary, restoring freshwater ecosystems, and improved understanding of upstream-downstream linkages. In order to effectively support river basin management satellite based multi sensor and multi temporal data is used to understand diverse river basin related aspects. We present here our recent experiences and results on satellite based rainfall and run off assessments, land use and land cover change and erosion dynamics, multi thematic water vulnerability assessments, space based data streaming systems for dynamic hydrological modelling, and potential applications of agent based models in effective local water use management.

Afghan Hindu Kush: Where Eurasian Sub-Continent Gene Flows Converge  

PubMed Central

Despite being located at the crossroads of Asia, genetics of the Afghanistan populations have been largely overlooked. It is currently inhabited by five major ethnic populations: Pashtun, Tajik, Hazara, Uzbek and Turkmen. Here we present autosomal from a subset of our samples, mitochondrial and Y- chromosome data from over 500 Afghan samples among these 5 ethnic groups. This Afghan data was supplemented with the same Y-chromosome analyses of samples from Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia and updated Pakistani samples (HGDP-CEPH). The data presented here was integrated into existing knowledge of pan-Eurasian genetic diversity. The pattern of genetic variation, revealed by structure-like and Principal Component analyses and Analysis of Molecular Variance indicates that the people of Afghanistan are made up of a mosaic of components representing various geographic regions of Eurasian ancestry. The absence of a major Central Asian-specific component indicates that the Hindu Kush, like the gene pool of Central Asian populations in general, is a confluence of gene flows rather than a source of distinctly autochthonous populations that have arisen in situ: a conclusion that is reinforced by the phylogeography of both haploid loci.

Early human impact in the forest ecotone of southern High Asia (Hindu Kush, Himalaya)  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The vegetation of the treeline ecotone of the southern declivity of arid High Asia (Hindu Kush, northern areas of Pakistan; Himalaya, northern central Nepal) is dominated by hedgehog-like open dwarf shrublands of thorny cushions. Since climatically sensitive ecotones are always also sensitive to human impact, the question arises whether the current lack of forests is a result of the Subboreal climate decline or of human impact. Due to inadequate knowledge of the pollen flora and of ecological indicator values of the plants, pollen analyses in High Asia have mainly been limited to the regional verification of globally known climatic impulses. However, the role of human impact on regional vegetation patterns has been widely neglected. We postulate that today's open dwarf shrublands replace woodlands and forests. Isolated vigorous juniper trees and successful reforestation appear to confirm our hypothesis. An abrupt decline of Pinus forests before 5700 and 5400 ka cal yr BP can be demonstrated. As the first indicator pollen of human impact appeared at both sites synchronous with the forest pollen decline, we infer human impact to be a more decisive cause for this environment change superimposing the effects of a climatic deterioration. The forests were displaced by open dwarf shrublands.

The deep structure beneath the Pamir - Hindu Kush region from teleseismic tomography  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Pamir - Hindu Kush orogenic system is surely one of the least studied corners along the India-Eurasia collisional belt despite featuring several tectonically unique features. The lack of modern geophysical data from the region left the deep processes and structures that cause and host the unique intermediate depth earthquakes here mostly in the dark. To shed light on some of these processes we image the seismic velocity structure in the upper mantle and transition zone. We implemented a tomographic inversion for P-wave velocities based on teleseismic earthquakes recorded at temporal and permanent seismic stations within the study region. Our study is mainly based on the temporary seismic deployments from the TIPAGE (Tien Shan Pamir Geodynamic Project), FERGHANA and TIPTIMON (Tien Shan Pamir Monitoring Program) projects. Within the framework of these projects, 40, 20 and 25 mostly broadband stations were deployed from mid-2008 to mid-2010 and from June 2012 onwards within Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. These data were complemented by a similar number of permanent stations covering in the course most of central Asia. We measured so far more than 30,000 phase arrivals from approx. 700 earthquakes occurring at epicentral distances between 20 to 180 degree. This data set is inverted simultaneously for velocity anomalies and station corrections. To account for the large variations of crustal thickness beneath the study region, we implemented a newly determined Moho model for the Pamir and surroundings, which is based on receiver function analysis. The resulting tomographic model extends to depths of approximately 500 km and covers the area between 67 to 79 degree East and 36 to 44 degree North. We will present preliminary P wave velocity images based on the currently available data set.

The important role for nurses in supporting the Asian Hindu patient and family at end of life: providing culturally sensitive end-of-life care.  

PubMed

As cultural ecology of Canada evolves with daily arrival of new immigrants, Canadians welcome them and feel very proud of preserving their multicultural heritage. As minority groups, especially South Asian Hindus, continue to grow, there is a need to understand their cultural perspectives and accommodate their cultural preferences for end-of-life care. This article addresses end-of-life care from a point of view of Hindu culture and religion and provides a brief overview of their beliefs and rituals related to it. This article also guides nurses to understand diverse Hindu cultural practices and beliefs to help support their patients and families at this difficult time of life. PMID:21462877

Once in contact, always in contact: contagious essence and conceptions of purification in American and Hindu Indian children.  

PubMed

Cultural and age differences in responses to contamination and conceptions of purification were examined in Hindu Indian (N = 125) and American (N = 106) 4- to 5-year-olds and 8-year-olds, who were provided with stories of juice contaminated by contact with a cockroach, a human hair, and a stranger (via sipping). Children who rejected the juice as being fit to drink were probed to determine whether their rejection was based on material essence (reduced by boiling), association (reduced by color change), or spiritual essence (reduced by sipping by the mother). A majority of 4- to 5-year-olds showed some form of contamination response, as did the great majority of 8-year-olds. Younger children's judgments were often based on spiritual essence or association, whereas material essence was more important for the older children, particularly Americans. However, for many children in both cultures, no purifiers were effective. In keeping with Hindu culture, the Indian children responded significantly more strongly to stranger or cockroach contamination and, with increasing age, viewed contamination as more impervious to any kind of purification.

The meaning of widowhood and health to older middle-class Hindu widows living in a South Indian community.  

PubMed

Indian widowhood has long been associated with victimization and vulnerability, but traditional attitudes toward widowhood are changing and reflect the rapid changes occurring in India. Using Caring Inquiry, a phenomenological-hermeneutic methodology that places caring at its center, this article presents a study that explores the meaning of health and widowhood to 14 older middle-class Hindu widows living in urban South India. From the data emerge six metathemes that are pertinent to nursing praxis and the delivery of health care to widows in South India: (a) Drawing From Within, (b) Seeking Help and Guidance, (c) Accepting the Role, (d) Challenging Tradition, (e) Serving Others, and (f) Finding Companionship. The findings reveal that all the widows share a common desire to move on with life, articulated by one widow as "The Show Must Go On," which serves as a foundation for a theory and model of the meaning of widowhood and health to older middle-class South Indian Hindu widows. This study advances the limited body of knowledge on the lives and health of these widows. PMID:20592065

Gene diversity for haptoglobin and transferrin classical markers among Hindu and Muslim populations of Aligarh City, India.  

PubMed

The present paper reports the distribution of serum protein markers viz. haptoglobin and transferrin in two major groups of Aligarh city of North India. In present study we have undertaken a survey of 538 individuals belonging to eight different populations, four from the Hindu community i.e. Brahmin, Bania, Rajput and Jatav, and the rest four among the Muslim community i.e. Syed, Sheikh, Pathan and Ansari. The heterozygosity ranged from 0.2939 (Ansari) to 0.4873 (Brahmin) for haptoglobin and from 0.000 (Rajput) to 0.1498 (Pathan) for transferrin. The values of D(ST) are 0.4122 and 0.4406, and that of G(ST) are 0.5059 and 0.9726 for haptoglobin and transferrin markers respectively. Through F(ST) test, it has been concluded that there is a high genetic differentiation of populations within Hindu and Muslim groups, though there is absence of any significant differences between these groups.

Landslides in Uzbekistan, caused by simultaneous influence of precipitation and remote, deep earthquakes in Hindu-kush  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We found the simultaneous and combined effect of precipitation and remote deep earthquake on landslide activation. Characteristics of precipitation and snow melting process are apparently affected by the climate change in the mountains of Uzbekistan. An unusual large precipitation of 288mm was recorded in February 2010 and most of the snow cover was melted. Precipitation of early spring 2010 was 688 mm and it could penetrate into unfrozen ground. This created favorable conditions for landslides activation. In Hindu-Kush mountain region near Himalaya, 15 deep earthquakes of M > 4.5 occurred since January until June 2010. In spite of large epicenter distance and low ground intensity, February 22, 28, and April, 12 earthquakes apparently induced landslides, cracks, depression simultaneously. The February 22 earthquake of M = 4.7 caused simultaneously cracks, failure depressions at 6 sites. The strongest earthquake of M = 5.7 has taken place February, 27, which was felt as intensity 3-4 units with duration about 3 minutes in Uzbekistan. It caused 9 landslides of 2.5 to 70 thousand m3 in the western territory. In Tashkent region, this quake caused large-scale (150 thousand m3) block landslide, and few cracks extending up to 450m. On April 11-12, intense rainfall of 32 mm was recorded. It raised the water level in the river Kichik - Uradarya for about 1.2m and affected the top 2 m of the right river bank for 250m long. On April 12, an earthquake of M > 4.5 occurred in Hindu Kush region and it was felt in Uzbekistan for 1.5 min - duration and caused landslide of 366 thousand m3. However, earthquakes in May - June did not caused new landslides, possibly due to limited amount of precipitation. Compared with the past years records of precipitation, snow-melting, earthquakes, and landslide activation, precipitation and intensity of snow melting in place and time most control groundwater condition and undermining basis of slope stability which causes landslides at low-frequency, long duration (1.5-3 min) earthquakes.

The drinking habits of Sikh, Hindu, Muslim and white men in the West Midlands: a community survey.  

PubMed

Men born in India but living in Britain have higher than expected treated prevalence rates of alcohol-related disorders. A community survey of random samples of 200 each of Sikh, Muslim and Hindu men and 200 white English-born men, matched for age, were interviewed using a structural questionnaire containing a retrospective drinking diary. Sikhs were most likely to be regular drinkers followed by whites and Hindus. The very few Muslim men who drank consumed the most alcohol on average. The frequently reported pattern of an inverse relationship between drinking and age was found for white men but not among Sikhs and Hindus. In both these groups older men reported consuming more alcohol than did young men. However, age was confounded with generation: heavier levels of consumption were reported by Sikhs and Hindus born in India than by Sikhs and Hindus born in Britain. Among regular drinkers Sikhs had higher average Alcohol Problem Scale Scores than did white men or Hindus. The highest average scores were recorded for the (few) Muslim regular drinkers (who also consumed the most alcohol). A clear association with religious observance was found for all three Asian groups and for the white men. No religious Muslims drank at all, and a relatively small proportion of the other groups who were regular church/Temple attenders drank regularly. PMID:2378993

Assessment of permafrost distribution maps in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan region using rock glaciers mapped in Google Earth  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The extent and distribution of permafrost in the mountainous parts of the Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) region have barely been investigated and are largely unknown. Only on the Tibetan Plateau a long tradition of permafrost research on rather gentle relief exists. Two permafrost maps are available that cover the HKH and provide estimates of permafrost extent, i.e. the areal proportion of permafrost: the manually delineated Circum-Arctic Map of Permafrost and Ground Ice Conditions (Brown et al., 1998) and the Global Permafrost Zonation Index, based on a computer model (Gruber, 2012). This article provides first-order assessment of permafrost maps of the HKH region based on the mapping of rock glaciers. Rock glaciers were used as a proxy, because they are visual indicators of permafrost, often occurring near the lowermost regional occurrence of permafrost in mountains, and because they can be delineated based on high-resolution remote sensing imagery freely available on Google Earth. For the mapping 4000 square samples (approx. 30 km2) were randomly distributed over the HKH region. Every sample was investigated and rock glaciers were mapped by two independent researchers following precise mapping instructions. Samples with insufficient image quality were recorded but not mapped. It is shown that mapping of rock glaciers in Google Earth can be used as first-order evidence for permafrost in mountain areas with severely limited ground truth. The minimum elevation of rock glaciers varies between 3500 and 5500 m a.s.l. within the region. The Circum-Arctic Map of Permafrost and Ground Ice Conditions does not reproduce mapped conditions in the HKH region adequately, whereas the Global Permafrost Zonation Index appears to be a reasonable first-order prediction of permafrost in the HKH. Only in the central part of the region a considerable deviation exists that needs further investigations.

Effects of absorbing aerosols on accelerated melting of snowpack in the Hindu-Kush-Himalayas-Tibetan Plateau region  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The impacts of absorbing aerosol on melting of snowpack in the Hindu-Kush-Himalayas-Tibetan Plateau (HKHT) region are studied using in-situ, satellite observations, and GEOS-5 GCM. Based on atmospheric black carbon measurements from the Pyramid observation (~ 5 km elevation) in Mt. Everest, we estimate that deposition of black carbon on snow surface will give rise to a reduction in snow surface albedo of 2- 5 %, and an increased annual runoff of 12-34% for a typical Tibetan glacier. Examination of multi-year satellite reflectivity and re-analysis data reveals signals of possible impacts of dust and black carbon in darkening the snow surface, and accelerating spring melting of snowpack in the HKHT, following a build-up of absorbing aerosols in the Indo-Gangetic Plain. Results from GCM experiments show that a 8-10% increase in the rate of melting of snowpack over the western Himalayas and Tibetan Plateau can be attributed to the elevated-heat-pump (EHP) feedback effect, initiated from the absorption of solar radiation by dust and black carbon accumulated to great height (~ 5 km) over the Indo-Gangetic Plain and Himalayas foothills in the pre-monsoon season (April-May). The accelerated melting of the snowpack is enabled by an EHP-induced atmosphere-land-snowpack positive feedback involving a) orographic forcing of the monsoon flow by the complex terrain of the HKHT region, leading to increased moisture, cloudiness and rainfall over the Himalayas foothills and northern India, b) warming of the upper troposphere over the Tibetan Plateau, and c) a transfer of latent and sensible heat from atmosphere to the snow surface. Ongoing modeling work in assessing the relative roles of EHP vs. snow-darkening effects on accelerated melting of snowpack in HKHT region will be discussed.

Participation in mass gatherings can benefit well-being: longitudinal and control data from a North Indian Hindu pilgrimage event.  

PubMed

How does participation in a long-duration mass gathering (such as a pilgrimage event) impact well-being? There are good reasons to believe such collective events pose risks to health. There are risks associated with communicable diseases. Moreover, the physical conditions at such events (noise, crowding, harsh conditions) are often detrimental to well-being. Yet, at the same time, social psychological research suggests participation in group-related activities can impact well-being positively, and we therefore investigated if participating in a long-duration mass gathering can actually bring such benefits. In our research we studied one of the world's largest collective events - a demanding month-long Hindu religious festival in North India. Participants (comprising 416 pilgrims who attended the gathering for the whole month of its duration, and 127 controls who did not) completed measures of self-assessed well-being and symptoms of ill-health at two time points. The first was a month before the gathering commenced, the second was a month after it finished. We found that those participating in this collective event reported a longitudinal increase in well-being relative to those who did not participate. Our data therefore imply we should reconceptualise how mass gatherings impact individuals. Although such gatherings can entail significant health risks, the benefits for well-being also need recognition. Indeed, an exclusive focus on risk is misleading and limits our understanding of why such events may be so attractive. More importantly, as our research is longitudinal and includes a control group, our work adds robust evidence to the social psychological literature concerning the relationship between participation in social group activities and well-being.

Using Morphological, Molecular and Climatic Data to Delimitate Yews along the Hindu Kush-Himalaya and Adjacent Regions  

PubMed Central

Background Despite the availability of several studies to clarify taxonomic problems on the highly threatened yews of the Hindu Kush-Himalaya (HKH) and adjacent regions, the total number of species and their exact distribution ranges remains controversial. We explored the use of comprehensive sets of morphological, molecular and climatic data to clarify taxonomy and distributions of yews in this region. Methodology/Principal Findings A total of 743 samples from 46 populations of wild yew and 47 representative herbarium specimens were analyzed. Principle component analyses on 27 morphological characters and 15 bioclimatic variables plus altitude and maximum parsimony analysis on molecular ITS and trnL-F sequences indicated the existence of three distinct species occurring in different ecological (climatic) and altitudinal gradients along the HKH and adjacent regions Taxus contorta from eastern Afghanistan to the eastern end of Central Nepal, T. wallichiana from the western end of Central Nepal to Northwest China, and the first report of the South China low to mid-elevation species T. mairei in Nepal, Bhutan, Northeast India, Myanmar and South Vietnam. Conclusion/Significance The detailed sampling and combination of different data sets allowed us to identify three clearly delineated species and their precise distribution ranges in the HKH and adjacent regions, which showed no overlap or no distinct hybrid zone. This might be due to differences in the ecological (climatic) requirements of the species. The analyses further provided the selection of diagnostic morphological characters for the identification of yews occurring in the HKH and adjacent regions. Our work demonstrates that extensive sampling combined with the analysis of diverse data sets can reliably address the taxonomy of morphologically challenging plant taxa. PMID:23056501

Hindu Kush-Himalayan Region at the Forefront of Global Change: An Assessment of Snowmelt, Hydrology, Vegetation, and Climate  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) region epitomizes a geographic location at the forefront of global environmental change where cryospheric, hydrological, and ecological processes are under threat owing to a warming climate. This region, also known as the 'water towers of Asia', contains the largest amount of ice outside of the polar regions, provides sustenance to ˜200 million inhabitants, feeds large Asiatic river basins, hosts global biodiversity hotspots with numerous ecoregions and protected areas, and is warming at a rate that significantly exceeds the global rate. Given the susceptibility of the HKH region to climate change, improved understanding of biophysical processes and climatological trajectories is necessary for impacts assessment and for long-term sustainability of resources throughout the region. Through basin- to regional-scale analyses, this study examines snowmelt processes, snowmelt hydrology, regional climate projections and climate extremes, and vegetation dynamics across the HKH region by integrating remotely sensed datasets with available field observations, global climate model outputs, and hydrological modeling. Results from a first comprehensive freeze/thaw detection study using satellite-based radar scatterometer provides spatial and temporal patterns of snowmelt dynamics (melt onset, freeze-up and melt duration) and shows the eastern Himalayan region with a significantly longer melt season compared to the central and western Himalayan and Karakoram regions. Multi-model analyses based on climate simulations from the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 3 archive indicate a continued trend for more extremes in the 21 st century, consistent with a warmer, wetter climate. Precipitation projections indicate a more intense monsoon in the eastern Himalayan region, yet a wetter cold season in the western Himalayan region. Significant changes in snowmelt processes and regional hydrology may occur owing to such projected changes in climate. However, through a robust approach of hydrological modeling coupled with a data assimilation technique for parameterization, I emphasize the need for evaluation of snowmelt runoff models, examination of model uncertainty, and determination of uncertainty in snowmelt contributions to runoff prior to impacts assessment. Results quantify snowmelt contributions in an eastern Himalayan basin to be 29.7 +/- 2.9% on average for the 2002-2006 period, with the 4000-5500 m elevation zone being the most critical with regards to its snowmelt contributions. Finally, a comprehensive regional analysis of vegetation dynamics as observed through satellite-derived Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) identifies large-scale vegetation patterns and trends for the 1982-2006 period. Although there is a significant overall greening trend in most areas such as grassland regions in the Tibetan Plateau, other regions such as the southeastern HKH are undergoing significant losses in vegetation. Taken collectively, the overall research not only lays out cryospheric, hydrological, ecological, and climatological baselines necessary for the HKH region but also emphasizes regional variability in these responses and the need for an integrated approach to understanding based on monitoring and systematic modeling approaches.

Red Sprites as the source of ELF emission from lightning  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Jagdish Rai Invertis University, NH-24, Bareilly, India and Manoj K. Paras Department of Applied Sciences, DIT University, Dehradun, India. ABSTRACT Rai (1974) discussed the possibility of upper atmospheric lightning discharges. These discharges were observed experimentally by sertman et al (1995), Lyons (1996), Stenback- Nielsen and Mc Harg (2008) and many others. Cummer et al (1998) and Cummer (2003) observed that the radiation from red sprites lie in the ELF range. From the knowledge of velocity and current expressions obtained by Paras and Rai (2011) for red sprites, authors obtained the frequency spectrum of emitted radiation. The radiation lies mainly in ELF range and peaks around 40Hz. A comparative study of radio emissions from red sprite and return stroke- lateral corona current system shows that the power radiated from the former is higher than the later. When subjected to the propagation in earth -ionosphere waveguide, authors find that the Schumann resonances are caused by red sprites and not by return strokes. References:- 1.

The model of the universe is considered in which background of the universe is not defined by the matter but is a priori specified as a homogenous and isotropic flat space. The scale factor of the universe follows the linear law. The scale of mass changes proportional to the scale factor. This leads to that the universe has the fractal structure with a power index of 2.

Our Universe  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Universe in which we live is unimaginably vast and ancient, with countless star systems, galaxies, and extraordinary phenomena such as black holes, dark matter, and gamma ray bursts. What phenomena remain mysteries, even to seasoned scientists? Our Universe is a fascinating collection of essays by some of the world's foremost astrophysicists. Some are theorists, some computational modelers, some observers, but all offer their insights into the most cutting-edge, difficult, and curious aspects of astrophysics. Compiled, the essays describe more than the latest techniques and findings. Each of the ten contributors offers a more personal perspective on their work, revealing what motivates them and how their careers and lives have been shaped by their desire to understand our universe. S. Alan Stern is Director of the Department of Space Studies at Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. He is a planetary scientist and astrophysicist with both observational and theoretical interests. Stern is an avid pilot and a principal investigator in NASA's planetary research program, and he was selected to be a NASA space shuttle mission specialist finalist. He is the author of more than 100 papers and popular articles. His most recent book is Pluto & Charon (Wiley, 1997).

Eternal Universe  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We discuss cosmological models for an eternal Universe. Physical observables show no singularity from the infinite past to the infinite future. While the Universe is evolving, there is no beginning and no end—the Universe exists forever. The early state of inflation is described in two different, but equivalent pictures. In the freeze frame the Universe emerges from an almost static state with flat geometry. After entropy production it shrinks and "thaws" slowly from a "freeze state" with extremely low temperature. The field transformation to the second "big bang picture" (Einstein frame) is singular. This "field singularity" is responsible for an apparent singularity of the big bang. Furthermore, we argue that past-incomplete geodesics do not necessarily indicate a singularity or beginning of the Universe. Proper time ceases to be a useful concept for physical time if particles become massless. We propose to define physical time by counting the number of zeros of a component of the wave function. This counting is independent of the choice of coordinates and frames, and applies to massive and massless particles alike.

Recycling universe  

E-print Network

If the effective cosmological constant is non-zero, our observable universe may enter a stage of exponential expansion. In such case, regions of it may tunnel back to the false vacuum of an inflaton scalar field, and inflation with a high expansion rate may resume in those regions. An ``ideal'' eternal observer would then witness an infinite succession of cycles from false vacuum to true, and back. Within each cycle, the entire history of a hot universe would be replayed. If there were several minima of the inflaton potential, our ideal observer would visit each one of these minima with a frequency which depends on the shape of the potential. We generalize the formalism of stochastic inflation to analyze the global structure of the universe when this `recycling' process is taken into account.

Misunderstood Universe  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Two errors in the model of the universe result in Dark Matter and Dark Energy. Error one is belief in Newton's law of gravity as a universal law. For motion of groups of galaxies, and rotation of spiral galaxies, the law fails. My simple Theory of Additional Gravity (TAG), an extension of Newton's original law of gravity, fits the cosmic distance observations and in our solar system. My model adds a linear term to Newton's gravitational constant, based upon an equation for forces in spiral galaxies. This theory is different from the MOND theory of Milgrom, which is related to acceleration. We explain tired light. Error two is for Hubble's law, for red shifts as a linear function of distance, and due to the Doppler effect. The galaxies are not receding, the universe is not expanding, and there is no big bang proof. Velocities actually were not directly observed. The age of the universe is wrong. The red shift cannot be used for distance determination because extrapolation of the linear dependence to very large distances would require an unlikely zero and negative photon energy. The difference between the distances of remote galaxies and from red shifts suggested accelerating expansion and the need for Dark energy.

Tribute to Professor Padma Kant Shukla on the occasion of his 60th birthday  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

As the Journal of Plasma Physics so fittingly dedicates this current volume to honor Professor Padma Kant Shukla, for his extraordinary and prolific contributions to the field, over a period spanning four decades, on the occasion of his 60th birthday, it gives me great pleasure to contribute this personal tribute. Padma is without doubt one of the preeminent plasma theorists of his generation with a productivity that is phenomenal and perhaps unmatched (well in excess of 1000). What is truly impressive is not only his extraordinary productivity but also the depth and breadth of his contributions, which while being centered in plasma physics, bridge many other disciplines including condensed matter physics, particle physics, and geophysics. Although I was familiar with Padma's work, in several areas, earlier, I first met him about 20 years ago, when he began working in a field of great interest to me, namely dusty plasmas. Very quickly Padma became a leader in this very new and rapidly developing field, in particular, pioneering the fascinating area of waves in dusty plasmas; predicting the existence, among others, of the very low frequency dust acoustic mode, which was spectacularly observed subsequently in the laboratory, and has been cited about 1000 times since. During this time I got to know Padma very well while participating in numerous international meetings convened by him and also while hosting him, several times, as a visiting professor at my home institution, and observing his multifaceted talents as an outstanding scholar, inspiring mentor, tireless organizer, and committed humanitarian. While Padma's accomplishments are extraordinary, what makes them even more noteworthy is his personal history. Padma came from a family of modest means in a small Indian village. He was the first member of his extended family who went to college, mainly due to the efforts of the village schoolteacher who obviously recognized the young student's innate talent. Living up to his schoolteacher's expectations he later graduated (with honors) from Agra University at the age of 17 and then proceeded to obtain his PhD in physics from the Hindu Banaras University, at the age of 21. He then proceeded to the University of Umeå, Sweden, on scholarship, and quickly blossomed to his full potential under the caring guidance of Prof. Lennart Stenflo, while also earning his second PhD, three years later. These early experiences deeply influenced Padma; on the one hand he recognizes that raw talent exists in all corners of the world, and on the other hand he feels a deep commitment to help discover, nurture, and mentor such talent. Toward this end Padma did several things. He organized numerous international meetings in both developed and developing nations. He has also continued to organize the annual Plasma Physics Summer School at the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy. He has used these opportunities to discover promising young scientists from the world over, helping them to come to his host university in Bochum, with support obtained from various international organizations, and mentored them. These young scholars, haling from every continent of the world, have gone on to become active scientists in their own right and many have proceeded to become leading researchers, educators, and administrators in their home countries. It is in recognition of his “extraordinary efforts in the discovery, the nurturing and mentoring of scientific talent across the globe” that he received the highly prestigious Nicholson Medal, awarded by the American Physical Society, for human outreach by a leading scientist in 2005. In recognition of his outstanding scientific contributions Padma has received numerous international honors including several honorary doctorates, foreign membership of several national academies, fellowships of a number of international scientific organizations and prizes. Yet, I think that among all these honors, the Nicholson Medal perhaps is the most appropriate because it recognizes what Pa

Rainbow universe  

E-print Network

The formalism of rainbow gravity is studied in a cosmological setting. We consider the very early universe which is radiation dominated. A novel treatment in our paper is to look for an ``averaged'' cosmological metric probed by radiation particles themselves. Taking their cosmological evolution into account, we derive the modified Friedmann-Robertson-Walker(FRW) equations which is a generalization of the solution presented by Magueijo and Smolin. Based on this phenomenological cosmological model we argue that the spacetime curvature has an upper bound such that the cosmological singularity is absent. These modified $FRW$ equations can be treated as effective equations in the semi-classical framework of quantum gravity and its analogy with the one recently proposed in loop quantum cosmology is also discussed.

Zöllner's Universe  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The idea that space is not Euclidean by necessity, and that there are other kinds of "curved" spaces, diffused slowly to the physical and astronomical sciences. Until Einstein's general theory of relativity, only a handful of astronomers contemplated a connection between non-Euclidean geometry and real space. One of them, the German astrophysicist Johann Carl Friedrich Zöllner (1834-1882), suggested in 1872 a remarkable cosmological model describing a finite universe in closed space. I examine Zöllner's little-known contribution to cosmology and also his even more unorthodox speculations of a four-dimensional space including both physical and spiritual phenomena. I provide an overview of Zöllner's scientific work, of his status in the German scientific community, and of the controversies caused by his polemical style of science. Zöllner's cosmology was effectively forgotten, but there is no reason why it should remain an unwritten chapter in the history of science.

Gender and climate change in the Indian Hindu-Kush Himalayas: global threats, local vulnerabilities  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Global climate change has numerous implications for members of mountain communities who feel the impacts in both physical and social dimensions. In the Western Himalayas of India, a majority of residents maintain a livelihood strategy that includes a combination of subsistence or small-scale agriculture, seasonal pastoral migration, male out-migration, and localized natural resource extraction. Particularly under conditions of heavy male outmigration, but throughout the region, mountain women play a key role in providing labor and knowledge related to the management of local natural resources, yet often lack authority in related political and economic decision-making processes. This gap has important implications for addressing the impacts of climate change: while warming temperatures, irregular patterns of precipitation and snowmelt, and changing biological systems present challenges to the viability of these traditional livelihood portfolios throughout the region, mountain women increasingly face new challenges in their roles as household managers that have not adequately been emphasized in larger scale planning for climate change adaptation and mitigation. These challenges are complex in nature, and are shaped not only by gender issues but also interacting factors such as class, caste, ethnicity, and age (among others). In this paper, we review the main arguments behind the discursive gender/climate change nexus, discuss the implications for gendered vulnerabilities and transformation of adaptive capacities in the region, and suggest ways that researchers and policymakers seeking to promote "climate justice" can benefit from the incorporation of gender-based perspectives and frameworks.

[Similarities between Indian Hindu god Dhanvantari and Yakushi Buddha (Buddha of healing)].  

PubMed

The authors compared statues and figures of Buddha of Healing (Yakushi Buddha) with those of Dhanvantari god and Varuna god in India. Statues and figures of Ayurvedic God, Dhanvantari, are respected by Indian medical doctors, pharmacists and patients. Dhanvantari has the medicinal pot containing the rejuvenating nectar (Amrta). Therefore, it is most probably the case that the Yakushi Buddha in Japan originated from the Dhanvantari God in Ayurveda. PMID:19579830

Microscale strain partitioning? Differential quartz lattice preferred orientation development in micaceous phyllite, Hindu Kush, northwestern Pakistan  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Spatially referenced quartz c axis fabrics demonstrate the preservation of multiple, distinct fabrics in a specimen collected from northwestern Pakistan. The overall fabric yielded by the specimen is dominated by a single population of quartz grains, while the fabric signatures of two other unique, spatially distinct populations are overwhelmed. It is these minor fabrics, however, that provide information on temperature of deformation (403 ± 50 °C), differential stress (8.6 + 2.6/-1.5 MPa to 15.0 +3.8/-2.5 MPa), strain rate (10-16 s-1 to 10-15 s-1), and strain partitioning recorded by the specimen. This work highlights the potential importance of using spatially referenced data when conducting lattice preferred orientation analyses.

Spiritual Concerns in Hindu Cancer Patients Undergoing Palliative Care: A Qualitative Study  

PubMed Central

Aims: Spiritual concerns are being identified as important components of palliative care. The aim of this study was to explore the nature of spiritual concerns in cancer patients undergoing palliative care in a hospice in India. Materials and Methods: The methodology used was a qualitative method: Interpretive phenomenological analysis. A semi-structured interview guide was used to collect data, based on Indian and western literature reports. Certain aspects like karma and pooja, relevant to Hindus, were included. Theme saturation was achieved on interviewing 10 participants. Results: The seven most common spiritual concerns reported were benefit of pooja, faith in God, concern about the future, concept of rebirth, acceptance of one's situation, belief in karma, and the question Why me? No participant expressed four of the concerns studied: Loneliness, need of seeking forgiveness from others, not being remembered later, and religious struggle. Conclusions: This study confirms that there are spiritual concerns reported by patients receiving palliative care. The qualitative descriptions give a good idea about these experiences, and how patients deal with them. The study indicates the need for adequate attention to spiritual aspects during palliative care. PMID:24049350

Attitudes toward children with clefts in rural Muslim and Hindu societies.  

PubMed

Many charitable organizations conduct overseas missions to correct cleft lip and palate where surgical care is hard to obtain. However, little is known about genetic backgrounds, cultural and societal attitudes regarding the cleft deformity. A questionnaire has been designed to elicit these attitudes. The questionnaire was administered to 50 families of children with cleft lip seeking care at Operation Smile missions in each of 2 disparate rural communities, one in the state of Gujarat in India and the other in the upper Nile valley in Egypt. Saliva and blood samples were collected from all patients to investigate MSX1, IRF6, PVRL1, MHC class I chain related (MICA), TP73L, MTHFR, TGF-beta3, and RAR alpha genes, within a proposed multinational genetic research project for cleft causation using micro-array and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods. All patients had been operated and experienced good results through the follow-up period, which was ranging from 3-24 months. Demographic data defined literacy and educational level; answers established the degree of social isolation, the impact on the family, and the expectations of what surgery would accomplish for the child. Beliefs concerning the causation of the cleft were explored in detail. Knowledge of these issues is important for the more complete care of children in an unfamiliar cultural environment.

Thus, entropy grows in the Universe, contrary to Standard Cosmology prediction.

Evolution of Universal Grammar  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Universal grammar specifies the mechanism of language acquisition. It determines the range of grammatical hypothesis that children entertain during language learning and the procedure they use for evaluating input sentences. How universal grammar arose is a major challenge for evolutionary biology. We present a mathematical framework for the evolutionary dynamics of grammar learning. The central result is a coherence threshold, which specifies the condition for a universal grammar to induce coherent communication within a population. We study selection of grammars within the same universal grammar and competition between different universal grammars. We calculate the condition under which natural selection favors the emergence of rule-based, generative grammars that underlie complex language.

Raisin Bread Universe  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

In this lesson, students examine the idea of inflation in the Universe using rising raisin bread dough as a model for universal expansion. Students will read the Cosmic Times 1993 edition and use two articles: Pancake or Oatmeal Universe - What's for Breakfast and Inflation in the Universe to help them make observations. The students will observe a bowl of oatmeal to explain the lumpiness and smoothness of the universe. Then the students will use raisin bread to describe how the universe went through a period of inflation to expand into its current form today. This lesson is part of the Cosmic Times teacher guide and is intended to be used in conjunction with the 1993 Cosmic Times Poster.

The electrically charged universe  

E-print Network

The paper discusses the possibility of a universe that is not electrically neutral but has a net positive charge. It is claimed that such a universe contains a homogeneous distribution of protons that are not bound to galaxies and fill up the intergalactic space. This proton `gas' charges macroscopic objects like stars and planets, but it does not generate electrostatic or magnetic fields that affect the motion of these bodies significantly. However, the proton gas may contribute significantly to the total dark matter of the universe and its electrostatic potential may contribute to the dark energy and to the expansion of the universe.

Digital University Photographs: University of Dayton  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

The University of Dayton has a wonderful digital collection of photographs of the university. Visitors can search by "popular subject terms" which, perhaps not surprisingly, include the typical college terms of "football", "sports", and "athletes". However, there are also more unconventional terms available including "ghetto", which yields photos of the South Student Neighborhood, popularly known as the "Ghetto". Visitors to the collection will also find fraternity, sorority, and large imposing houses featured in the photographs of the "Ghetto". Visitors shouldn't miss browsing the many aerial views of campus and surrounding neighborhoods from the 1920s. Simply click on "campus", and enjoy the many views. Fans of the actor Tyrone Power should check out the picture of him with the University of Dayton football team in Hollywood in 1939 at Twentieth Century-Fox Studios. Visitors can also browse the collection or use the advanced search option.

Making a Universe  

E-print Network

For understanding the origin of anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background, rules to construct a quantized universe is proposed based on the dynamical triangulation method of the simplicial quantum gravity. A $d$-dimensional universe having the topology $ D^d $ is created numerically in terms of a simplicial manifold with $d$-simplices as the building blocks. The space coordinates of a universe are identified on the boundary surface $ S^{d-1} $, and the time coordinate is defined along the direction perpendicular to $ S^{d-1} $. Numerical simulations are made mainly for 2-dimensional universes, and analyzed to examine appropriateness of the construction rules by comparing to analytic results of the matrix model and the Liouville theory. Furthermore, a simulation in 4-dimension is made, and the result suggests an ability to analyze the observations on anisotropies by comparing to the scalar curvature correlation of a $ S^2 $-surface formed as the last scattering surface in the $ S^3 $ universe.

Age of the universe  

SciTech Connect

The age of the universe is the time that has elapsed since the Big Bang. To calculate the age, the expansion rate of the universe and distance to the galaxies must be determined. Unfortunately, it appears that the expansion rate is not constant but is decelerating. In the 1920's and 30's, Edwin Hubble set out to estimate the age of universe based on the expansion rate and distance to the galaxies. His method is described along with its flaw. Since that time several others have estimated the age of the universe. Their methods as well as results vary. These are discussed in the article. The ages determined from the various methods range from 10 to 20 billion years. There are two independent ways to determine the age of the universe. What they actually do is determine the age of our galaxy which would give a lower limit to the age of the universe. The first method calculates age of globular clusters which yields as age range from 8 to 18 billion years. The second method involves observing the speed at which radioactive substances decay. This also yields and age greater than 10 billion years. It is clear that there is still a lot of work to do before the true age of the universe can be determied. (SC)

Entropic Accelerating Universe  

E-print Network

To accommodate the observed accelerated expansion of the universe, one popular idea is to invoke a driving term in the Friedmann-Lemaitre equation of dark energy which must then comprise 70% of the present cosmological energy density. We propose an alternative interpretation which takes into account the entropy and temperature intrinsic to the horizon of the universe due to the information holographically stored there. Dark energy is thereby obviated and the acceleration is due to an entropic force naturally arising from the information storage on the horizon surface screen. We consider an additional quantitative approach inspired by surface terms in general relativity and show that this leads to the entropic accelerating universe.

The Transient Universe  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

When one looks at the night sky, one usually gets the impression of a static and constant universe. Quite apart from appearances, the sky is teeming with violent, variable, and transient events that shape our universe. These capricious objects are not only penetrating probes into physical conditions too extreme for earthbound laboratories, but they are also useful tools to measure the universe. In this dissertation, I investigate the observational and theoretical properties of three classes of transient/variable objects: thermonuclear supernovae, Cepheid variable stars, and active galactic nuclei.

Relativistic Viscous Universe Models  

E-print Network

The research on relativistic universe models with viscous fluids is reviewed. Viscosity may have been of significance during the early inflationary era, and may also be of importance for the late time evolution of the Universe. Bulk viscosity and shear viscosity cause exponential decay of anisotropy, while nonlinear viscosity causes power-law decay of anisotropy. We consider also the influence from turbulence, in connection with future singularities of the universe (Big Rip and Little Rip). Finally, we review some recent developments of causal cosmology theories.

Type II universal spacetimes  

E-print Network

We study type II universal metrics of the Lorentzian signature. These metrics solve vacuum field equations of all theories of gravitation with the Lagrangian being a polynomial curvature invariant constructed from the metric, the Riemann tensor and its covariant derivatives of arbitrary order. We provide examples of type II universal metrics for all composite number dimensions. On the other hand, we have no examples for prime number dimensions and we prove non-existence of type II universal spacetimes in five dimensions. We also present type II vacuum solutions of selected classes of gravitational theories, such as Lovelock, quadratic and L(Riemann) gravities.

Universe: The Universe Beyond our Solar System  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

This Science Object is the fourth of five Science Objects in the Universe SciPack. It explores the more unknown parts of the universe beyond our solar system and provides an understanding of where and how we fit into the universe as a whole. Astronomers have carefully measured the changing positions of stars, leading them to believe that the Sun is located about half-way out from the center of a disk-shaped galaxy of stars, part of which can be seen as a glowing band of light that spans the sky on a very clear night. Although our Sun is a single star, most stars exist in systems of two or more stars orbiting around one another and are arranged in huge star clusters. Galaxies are isolated collections of billions of gravitationally bound stars and immense clouds of gas and dust. Galaxies are, in turn, grouped into galaxy clusters and super-clusters. The universe contains many billions of galaxies separated by immense distances of mostly empty space. Some of these distant galaxies are so far away that their light takes several billion years to reach Earth. This means that here on Earth we are seeing them as they were that long ago. Learning Outcomes:? Arrange various objects in order of size and distance, ranging from space probes and moons to galaxies and galactic clusters.? Catalogue, in simple terms, the objects within a galaxy.? Generally explain "what is within what" (planetary systems, star clusters, galaxies, etc.).? Describe the location of our solar system within the Milky Way galaxy.? Describe the limitations of using parallax, radar, and brightness to measure the distance of objects from Earth, and classify objects whose distance from Earth could be accurately measured using each type of measurement strategy.

SYNTESIS: The Big Bang starts from a black hole i.e. prior to Big Bang there was a black hole and there is expected a number of Big Bang in the universe going similar to our Big Bang and the whole process of the expansion and contraction of the Big Bang as described in the paper.

University/industry research  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The problems encountered in mixing industrial and university research goals can be major, but so can the benefits. The National Science Board (NSB) recently released a report on “University-Industry Research Relationships: Selected Studies” (U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC, 1983). It is an analysis of the much-discussed new trend toward increased industrial funding of university research projects.University laboratories cannot generally solve industry's R&D problems. Success for the corporation in sponsoring academic research is realized in the value of cooperative research programs as training exercises for future industrial scientists. An occasional patent arising from such a project is considered an added benefit, not a primary goal.

Constructing the Goedel universe

By a suitable transformation, we derive the rotating Goedel universe from a static one and we show, how rotation may be implemented geometrically. The rotation law turns out to be a differential one. By increasing distance from the rotation axis the velocity of a rotating point will exceed the velocity of light and the cosmos has a cut-off radius. Thus, closed time-like curves do not occur in the Goedel universe.

The Gravitational Universe  

E-print Network

The last century has seen enormous progress in our understanding of the Universe. We know the life cycles of stars, the structure of galaxies, the remnants of the big bang, and have a general understanding of how the Universe evolved. We have come remarkably far using electromagnetic radiation as our tool for observing the Universe. However, gravity is the engine behind many of the processes in the Universe, and much of its action is dark. Opening a gravitational window on the Universe will let us go further than any alternative. Gravity has its own messenger: Gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of spacetime. They travel essentially undisturbed and let us peer deep into the formation of the first seed black holes, exploring redshifts as large as z ~ 20, prior to the epoch of cosmic re-ionisation. Exquisite and unprecedented measurements of black hole masses and spins will make it possible to trace the history of black holes across all stages of galaxy evolution, and at the same time constrain any deviation from the Kerr metric of General Relativity. eLISA will be the first ever mission to study the entire Universe with gravitational waves. eLISA is an all-sky monitor and will offer a wide view of a dynamic cosmos using gravitational waves as new and unique messengers to unveil The Gravitational Universe. It provides the closest ever view of the early processes at TeV energies, has guaranteed sources in the form of verification binaries in the Milky Way, and can probe the entire Universe, from its smallest scales around singularities and black holes, all the way to cosmological dimensions.

The Endless Universe  

SciTech Connect

This talk will introduce the Cyclic Model of the Universe, a radical alternative to standard big bang/inflationary cosmology in which space and time exist indefinitely, high energy inflation is avoided, dark energy is given a prominent role, and the universe undergoes periodic epochs of expansion and cooling. The model, which is motivated by recent ideas in superstring theory, seems capable of reproducing all of the successes of the standard picture and leads to distinctive predictions.

Representation of Universal Algebra  

E-print Network

Theory of representations of universal algebra is a natural development of the theory of universal algebra. Morphism of the representation is the map that conserve the structure of the representation. Exploring of morphisms of the representation leads to the concepts of generating set and basis of representation. In the book I considered the notion of tower of representations of $F_i$-algebras, i=1 ..., n, as the set of coordinated representations of $F_i$-algebras.

Age of the Universe  

NSDL National Science Digital Library

Some scientists say the universe is 10 billion years old; others say it is 20 billion. The problem is that different methods of measuring give different answers. This radio broadcast considers 2 methods: determining the age of stars; and determining the speed and distance of stars. The conflict in the two methods points to possible problems in the theory of the expanding universe or the lifetime of stars. The clip is 2 minutes in length.

The Runaway Universe  

SciTech Connect

The Universe appears to be flat, accelerating and lightweight. In this talk, I will explain what these terms mean, how we developed this view and its implications. I will also discuss the connection between cosmology and particle physics experiments being conducted at accelerators and in underground laboratories. I will conclude with a description of some proposed telescopes that will help us understand much more about the geometry, expansion and contents of our Universe.

The Low Temperature Universe  

SciTech Connect

We are used to thinking of the universe as a hot place, full of bright stars, quasars, gamma ray bursts, and so on, emanating from a giant explosion - the Big Bang. However, the universe can also be a surprisingly cool place. It is permeated by a background radiation with a temperature close to that of liquid helium. This paper is based on a public lecture aimed at non-specialists.

Fisk University was chartered in 1866 to educate former slaves at the end of the civil war. The physics department was started in 1931 under the chairmanship of Dr. Elmer Imes, Fisk 1903, a research physicist in the field of infrared (IR) spectroscopy. After Imes' death in 1941, one of his early physics majors, James Lawson, became chair and soon obtained a research IR instrument from the University of Michigan. By the early 1950's Fisk's IR research findings began to be published in the scientific journals and Fisk graduate students began to read the results of their M.A. thesis at the meeting of the Southeastern Section of the American Physical Society (SESAPS). This active participation in SESAPS in the mid-1950's was the impetus which caused SESAPS to switch its meetings from segregated to unsegregated facilities. During the next four decades physics at Fisk University expanded to include the annual Fisk Infrared Institute (FIRI) and the formation of strong research collaborations with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Vanderbilt University, Bordeaux University (France), and NASA. Our presentation will expand on these issues and also include a discussion of the ``McCarthyite Problem'' of the mid-fifties as it impacted both Fisk University and the physics department.

SciTech Connect

The principal objectives of the Fossil Energy Program are to seek new ideas, new data, fundamental knowledge that will support the ongoing programs, and new processes to better utilize the nation's fossil energy resources with greater efficiency and environmental acceptability. Toward this end, the Department of Energy supports research projects conducted by universities and colleges to: Ensure a foundation for innovative technology through the use of the capabilities and talents in our academic institutions; provide an effective, two-way channel of communication between the Department of Energy and the academic community; and ensure that trained technical manpower is developed to carry out basic and applied research in support of DOE's mission. Fossil Energy's university activities emphasize the type of research that universities can do best - research to explore the potential of novel process concepts, develop innovative methods and materials for improving existing processes, and obtain fundamental information on the structure of coal and mechanisms of reactions of coal, shale oil, and other fossil energy sources. University programs are managed by different Fossil Energy technical groups; the individual projects are described in greater detail in this book. It is clear that a number of research areas related to the DOE Fossil Energy Program have been appropriate for university involvement, and that, with support from DOE, university scientific and technical expertise can be expected to continue to play a significant role in the advancement of fossil energy technology in the years to come.

Thermodynamics of Fractal Universe  

E-print Network

We investigate the thermodynamical properties of the apparent horizon in a fractal universe. We find that one can always rewrite the Friedmann equation of the fractal universe in the form of the entropy balance relation $ \\delta Q=T_h d{S_h}$, where $ \\delta Q $ and $ T_{h} $ are the energy flux and Unruh temperature seen by an accelerated observer just inside the apparent horizon. We find that the entropy $S_h$ consists two terms, the first one which obeys the usual area law and the second part which is the entropy production term due to nonequilibrium thermodynamics of fractal universe. This shows that in a fractal universe, a treatment with nonequilibrium thermodynamics of spacetime may be needed. We also study the generalized second law of thermodynamics in the framework of fractal universe. When the temperature of the apparent horizon and the matter fields inside the horizon are equal, i.e. $T=T_h$, the generalized second law of thermodynamics can be fulfilled provided the deceleration and the equation of state parameters ranges either as $-1 \\leq q universe by suitably choosing the fractal parameter $\\beta$.

Fisk University was started in 1866 for predominantly Black students at the end of the Civil War. Its Department of Physics was started in 1931, under the chairmanship of Dr. Elmer Imes, Fisk '03, a research physicist in the field of infrared spectroscopy. Imes set the stage for Fisk's development of an infrared spectroscopy research laboratory. After Imes' untimely death in 1942, one of his early physics majors, James Lawson, chaired the Fisk Physics Department and soon obtained a research type infrared instrument from the University of Michigan. By the early 50's, five Fisk graduate students in physics published with their faculty mentors, the results of their M.A. degree research in infrared spectroscopy and read papers at the meetings of SESAPS. This active participation in SESAPS of Fisk's Black physicists was the impetus which caused SESAPS in 1954 to switch its meetings from segregated to unsegregated facilities. SESAPS then accepted the invitation of Fisk University to hold its 1955 annual meeting on the Fisk campus. But there is lots more to tell of Physics at Fisk University: research in ion optics and the solid state (like growing crystals in ``zero gravity"); research collaboration with Oak Ridge, Vanderbilt and Bordeaux, France; diversification of the physics student population; the impact of Fisk's physicists on the University's financial ``ups and downs"; etc. We will touch on all this and more!

University teaching - where next?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A one-day workshop will take place on 23 April 1999 at the University of Edinburgh's Conference and Training Centre to consider the topic `The future of university teaching? Multimedia, web and new technologies'. The workshop is being organized by Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre and will be attended by experts in distance learning from various institutions including the Clyde Virtual University and the Open University, plus a speaker from the USA. They will present case studies of the opportunities new technologies provide for higher education, covering all aspects from development of electronic courses through delivery mechanisms to user feedback. There is certainly an increasing need for quality teaching materials and new ways of learning. The workshop will aim to discuss how those involved in university teaching can benefit from new developments such as multimedia, the Internet, as well as new computing and networking technologies. Participation is free, with lunch and refreshments provided. More information and registration details can be found at http://www.epcc.ed.ac.uk/epcc-tec/JTAP/workshop/ or by e-mail to epcc-tec@epcc.ed.ac.uk.

The Gravitational Universe  

E-print Network

The last century has seen enormous progress in our understanding of the Universe. We know the life cycles of stars, the structure of galaxies, the remnants of the big bang, and have a general understanding of how the Universe evolved. We have come remarkably far using electromagnetic radiation as our tool for observing the Universe. However, gravity is the engine behind many of the processes in the Universe, and much of its action is dark. Opening a gravitational window on the Universe will let us go further than any alternative. Gravity has its own messenger: Gravitational waves, ripples in the fabric of spacetime. They travel essentially undisturbed and let us peer deep into the formation of the first seed black holes, exploring redshifts as large as z ~ 20, prior to the epoch of cosmic re-ionisation. Exquisite and unprecedented measurements of black hole masses and spins will make it possible to trace the history of black holes across all stages of galaxy evolution, and at the same time constrain any devia...
