Spokes cluster: The search for the quiescent gas
Jaime E Pineda,Paula S. Teixeira
Physics , 2013, DOI: 10.1051/0004-6361/201220861
Abstract: Context. Understanding the role of fragmentation is one of the most important current questions of star formation. To better understand the process of star and cluster formation, we need to study in detail the physical structure and properties of the parental molecular cloud. The Spokes cluster, or NGC 2264 D, is a rich protostellar cluster where previous N2H+(1-0) observations of its dense cores presented linewidths consistent with supersonic turbulence. However, the fragmentation of the most massive of these cores appears to have a scale length consistent with that of the thermal Jeans length, suggesting that turbulence was not dominant. Aims. These two results probe different density regimes. Our aim is to determine if there is subsonic or less-turbulent gas (than previously reported) in the Spokes cluster at higher densities. Methods. We present APEX N2H+(3-2) and N2D+(3-2) observations of the NGC2264-D region to measure the linewidths and the deuteration fraction of the higher density gas. The critical densities of the selected transitions are more than an order of magnitude higher than that of N2H+(1-0). Results. We find that the N2H+(3-2) and N2D+(3-2) emission present significantly narrower linewidths than the emission from N2H+(1-0) for most cores. In two of the spectra, the nonthermal component is close (within 1-sigma) to the sound speed. In addition, we find that the three spatially segregated cores, for which no protostar had been confirmed show the highest levels of deuteration. Conclusions. These results show that the higher density gas, probed with N2H+ and N2D+(3-2), reveals more quiescent gas in the Spokes cluster than previously reported. More high-angular resolution interferometric observations using high-density tracers are needed to truly assess the kinematics and substructure within NGC2264-D. (Abridged)

Abstract: We present 5 to 15 micron Spitzer Infrared Spectrograph (IRS) low resolution spectral data of a candidate debris disk around an M4.5 star identified as a likely member of the ~40 Myr old cluster NGC2547. The IRS spectrum shows a silicate emission feature, indicating the presence of warm, small, (sub)micron-sized dust grains in the disk. Of the fifteen previously known candidate debris disks around M-type stars, the one we discuss in this paper is the first to have an observed mid-infrared spectrum and is also the first to have measured silicate emission. We combined the IRS data with ancillary data (optical, JHKs, and Spitzer InfraRed Array Camera and 24 micron data) to build the spectral energy distribution (SED) of the source. Monte Carlo radiation transfer modeling of the SED characterized the dust disk as being very flat (h100=2AU) and extending inward within at least 0.13AU of the central star. Our analysis shows that the disk is collisionally dominated and is likely a debris disk.

Abstract: We present a high angular resolution map of 850 um continuum emission of the Orion Molecular Cloud-3 (OMC 3) obtained with the Submillimeter Array (SMA); the map is a mosaic of 85 pointings covering an approximate area of 6'.5 x 2'.0 (0.88 x 0.27 pc). We detect 12 spatially resolved continuum sources, each with an H_2 mass between 0.3-5.7 Mo and a projected source size between 1400-8200 AU. All the detected sources are on the filamentary main ridge n_H2>10^6 cm^-3), and analysis based on the Jeans theorem suggests that they are most likely gravitationally unstable. Comparison of multi-wavelength data sets indicates that of the continuum sources, 6/12 (50 %) are associated with molecular outflows, 8/12 (67 %) are associated with infrared sources, and 3/12 (25 %) are associated with ionized jets. The evolutionary status of these sources ranges from prestellar cores to protostar phase, confirming that OMC-3 is an active region with ongoing embedded star-formation. We detect quasi-periodical separations between the OMC-3 sources of ~17"/0.035 pc. This spatial distribution is part of a large hierarchical structure, that also includes fragmentation scales of GMC (~35 pc), large-scale clumps (~1.3 pc), and small-scale clumps (~0.3 pc), suggesting that hierarchical fragmentation operates within the Orion A molecular cloud. The fragmentation spacings are roughly consistent with the thermal fragmentation length in large-scale clumps, while for small-scale cores it is smaller than the local fragmentation length. These smaller spacings observed with the SMA can be explained by either a helical magnetic field, cloud rotation, or/and global filament collapse. Finally, possible evidence for sequential fragmentation is suggested in the northern part of the OMC-3 filament.

Abstract: A Realidade Aumentada (RA) apresenta a vantagem de permitir o uso de a es tangíveis e de opera es multimodais, envolvendo voz, gestos, tato, etc. Devido a sua variedade de interfaces é notavelmente maior a complexidade em projetá-las e usá-las. Logo, os projetistas desses sistemas precisam desenvolver um projeto centrado no usuário, se n o vários problemas de usabilidade poder o surgir. Para solucionar esse problema, os projetistas de ambientes em RA precisam de orienta es, guias e diretrizes para auxiliá-los na constru o do projeto. Até a data, guias de projeto para RA que podem ser encontrados na literatura s o sugest es bastante estreitas, derivadas de problemas específicos dos pesquisadores. Este trabalho tem o objetivo de apresentar uma investiga o que resultou em uma Estratégia de Análise de Requisitos para constru o de ambientes com RA. Como resultado dessa estratégia, est o disponíveis para os projetistas guias, atividades da análise do domínio e formulários que o auxiliam na análise de requisitos e na tomada de decis es de como proceder na implementa o do sistema. A eficácia da estratégia é verificada com a sua aplica o a um meta-modelo de especifica o de requisitos para a constru o de um sistema para o auxílio do tratamento da Aracnofobia.

Abstract: primary uterine angiosarcoma is a malignant tumor of the vascular endothelium that occurs predominately in peri and postmenopausal women with uterine bleeding and anemia. we present a case of a 66-year-old woman with uterine angiosarcoma who underwent abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, showing the importance of immunohistochemical staining in making the ?nal diagnose. histologically, the tumor has anastomosing vascular channels lined by highly atypical endothelial cells. immunohistochemical staining was positive for endothelial markers cd31 and vimentin, supporting the diagnosis of uterine angiosarcoma. primary uterine angiosarcoma tend to demonstrate a highly malignant behavior. the major prognostic factors seems to be the size of the tumor at diagnosis and the presence of extra pelvic disease. no consensus exist for best possible therapy given the few cases from which to draw conclusions.
