New Publication at the Open Journal of Astrophysics

The last couple of days have been very busy but at last I’ve got time to announce a new publication in the Open Journal of Astrophysics! This one is the 5th paper in Volume 5 (2022) and the 53rd in all. It was published on Thursday in fact but I’ve only just found time to mention it here.

The latest publication is entitled “Statistical Uncertainties of the NDW=1 QCD Axion Mass Window from Topological Defects” and is written by Sebastian Hoof & Jana Riess of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen in Germany and David Marsh of King’s College London.

This paper is in the Cosmology and Nongalactic Astrophysics folder (cross-listed on arXiv from High-Energy Physics).

Here is a screen grab of the overlay which includes the abstract:

P.S. We have quite a number of papers out there waiting for revised versions to be submitted. I get the feeling that everyone is very busy these days. Hopefully as we emerge from the pandemic things will improve.

    pedantry corner…. millieV or MegaeV? not my field, but 10^9 seems important

      lower case m is unambiguously milli-

      • Chris_C Says:

        Not unambiguous in newspapers and Government press releases – such as reports of 100 millitonne loads on motorways or £500m contracts!. Thanks for the clarification. I know it’s (a) been discussed before and (b) too late, but it would have been better for SI to use different letters for m and M. [and as an aside, my extensive research -i.e. a quick Google plus one old scientific textbook – indicates potential confusion in Russian, where the only difference between m and M is that the lower case letter is exactly the same shape as the upper but may be slightly smaller – and for micro they use MK. I assume there is potential for confusion between the Roman alphabet and any of the world’s other alphabets?]

        Such outlets are unlikely to use eV anyway as nobody outside physics understands what they are…
