8 Mattis, Daniel C.A contribution to the many-fermion problemIn this work we reexamine the many-fermion problem in arbitrary dimensions. It is shown that in two dimensions or higher, the Hamiltonian of interacting fermions can be separated into individual nonintersecting sectors labeled by the wave-vector q. Within each sector the Hamiltonian maps onto a gene...2012-01-01
9 Gondolo, PaoloAGAPE, a microlensing search in the direction of M31: status reportThe M31 galaxy in Andromeda is the nearest large galaxy after the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds. It is a giant galaxy, roughly 2 times as large as our Milky Way, and has its own halo. As pointed by some of us [1, 2] and independantly by A.

10 Gondolo, PaoloAGAPE: a search for dark matter in M31 by microlensing effects on unresolved starsM 31 is a very tempting target for a microlensing search of compact objects in galactic haloes. It is the nearest large galaxy, it probably has its own dark halo, and its tilted position with respect to the line of sight provides an unmistakable signature of microlensing. However most stars of M 31...M31; AGAPE; Pixel method; Galaxy; Halo; Cosmology; Gravitational lensing1997

12 Gondolo, PaoloAGAPEROS: searching for microlensing in the LMC with the pixel method. I. Data treatment and pixel light curves productionRecent surveys monitoring millions of light curves of resolved stars in the LMC have discovered several microlensing events. Unresolved stars could however signi _x000C_cantly contribute to the microlensing rate towards the LMC.
