      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      In this work, four methods are introduced to analyse the unevenly sampled data. The four methods are power spectral density, autocorrelation function, structure function and Jurkevich method. Some interesting mathematical links are derived amongst the four methods. These links show that the four methods have the same performance. For the Jurkevich method, the effect of the width of bins is apparent. If the width is half the time scale, the method has better performance.

    • Constraint on Parameters of Inverse Compton Scattering Model for PSR B2319+60

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Using the multifrequency radio profiles of pulsar PSR B2319+60, two parameters of inverse Compton scattering model, the initial Lorentz factor and the factor of energy loss of relativistic particles are constrained.

      Astronomy is a very interesting subject for undergraduate students studying physics. In this paper, we report astronomy education for undergraduate students in the Physics Department of Guangzhou University, and how we are teaching astronomy to the students. Astrophysics has been rapidly developing since 1994, when the center for astrophysics was founded. Now, astrophysics has become a key subject in Guangdong Province, and the Astronomy Science and Technology Research Laboratory one of the key laboratories of the Department of Education of the Guangdong Province. Many undergraduate students, working under the tutorship of faculty members completed their thesis at the Center for Astrophysics in Guangzhou.

    • Phase-Resolved Spectra of PSR B0525+21 and PSR B2020+28

      J. L. Chen H. G. Wang N. Wang

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Using the published data of multi-frequency time-aligned pulse profiles from Kuzmin et al. (1998), we calculate the phase-resolved spectra of PSRs B0525+21 and B2020+28. The results reveal that conaldouble pulsars have common `M’-shaped phase-resolved spectra.

    • Possible Lognormal Distribution of Fermi-LAT Data of OJ 287

      G. G. Deng Y. Liu J. H. Fan H. G. Wang

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      OJ 287 is a BL Lac object at redshift 𝑧 = 0.306 that has shown double-peaked bursts at regular intervals of 12 yr during the last 40 yr according to previous research. Some of the AGN 𝛾 ray power density shows a white noise process, while some others shows a red noise process. Some AGN flux presents normal or log-normal distribution. The two processes have an intrinsic relationship with centre black hole emission mechanism. We present the results of the analysis of the Fermi-LAT data. We review some problems concerning the random process.

    • Astronomy Education Project for Guangdong High Schools

      More Details Abstract Fulltext PDF

      Guangdong province is an active area in China for astronomy education and popularization. The current status and problems of astronomy education in high schools are reviewed. To tackle these problems, an astronomy education project for high school teachers and students was initiated by Guangzhou University in 2013. The purpose and key points of the projects are introduced in this paper.

    • Continuous Article Publication

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
