  1. The objective of this case study was to obtain some first-hand information about the functional consequences of a cosmetic tongue split operation for speech and tongue motility. One male patient who had performed the operation on himself was…
  2. We review current understanding of star formation, outlining an overall theoretical framework and the observations that motivate it. A conception of star formation has emerged in which turbulence plays a dual role, both creating overdensities to…
  3. ABSTRACT We study the torque on low-mass planets embedded in protoplanetary discs in the two-dimensional approximation, incorporating non-isothermal effects. We couple linear estimates of the Lindblad (or wave) torque to a simple, but non-linear,…
  4. The main asteroid belt, which inhabits a relatively narrow annulus approximately 2.1-3.3 au from the Sun, contains a surprising diversity of objects ranging from primitive ice-rock mixtures to igneous rocks. The standard model used to explain this…
  5. The irregular satellites of the outer planets, whose population now numbers over 100, are likely to have been captured from heliocentric orbit during the early period of solar system history. They may thus constitute an intact sample of the…
  6. Models of the evolution of Neptune's migration and the dynamical processes at work during the formation of the outer solar system can be constrained by measuring the orbital distribution of the remnant planetesimals in the Kuiper belt. Determining…
  7. The origins of the irregular satellites of the giant planets are an important piece of the huge puzzle' that is the theory of Solar system formation. They are not in situ formation objects, around the planet, as one believes the regular satellites…
