Iterated Riesz Commutators: A Simple Proof of Boundedness
Line counts of strong H-like and He-like ions and Fe xxi lines were measured with the CORA single-purpose line fitting tool by Ness & Wichmann (2002).
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
The CORA program measures line counts from the raw spectrum, i.e., the instrumental background is not subtracted and the background spectrum is instead added to the iterated model spectrum.
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
For Capella and AB Dor we measured RGS line counts with both CORA and XSPEC (convolving a δ -function profile with the line spread function) and we found consistent results within the 1σ errors.
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
We tested the effects arising from different treatments of the instrumental line profiles by exporting the line profiles used for the XSPEC fits into CORA and found similar results compared to what we obtained using the analytical Lorentzian profile function, without any systematic trend.
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
Obviously the Lorentzian used by CORA is an adequate representation for the RGS line profiles for our purposes.
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
We prefer to measure line counts with a program developed specifically for this task named named CORA (Ness & Wichmann 2002).
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
In the CORA program the continuum is assumed to be constant in sufficiently small wavelength regions, which is justified for individual line fitting with nearby lines.
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
The wings of the RGS line profile are wider and contribute to the continuum value obtained with the median function and CORA will therefore return an overestimated continuum and thus underestimated line counts.
On the sizes of stellar X-ray coronae
Some groups use an approach with N-body/SPH simulations combined with semi-analytical models that include detailed yields from type Ia and II supernovae (Valdarnini 2003, Tornatore et al. 2004, Scannapieco et al. 2005, Cora 2006, Romeo et al.

The first network is the Cora citation network , a popular dataset for collective classification comprising of 2708 nodes representing scientific papers and 5429 links representing the citations between them.
Supervised Blockmodelling
For the Cora and David networks it can be seen that the SBM model performs well and that there is no real advantage to using one of the other models.
Supervised Blockmodelling
The Cora network is highly assortative and the David network is highly disassortative, however, even though the networks are very different in structure they both contain homogeneous classes and so each class can be modelled with a single network role.
