Cosmological parameters from Galaxy Clusters: an Introduction
The evolution of the XLF is still debated: there is a hint of evolution at the very bright end, but for the typical L∗ clusters and less luminous ones, there is no evolution almost up to z ∼ 1 (see discussion in the review by Rosati, Borgani & Norman 2002).
Cosmological parameters from Galaxy Clusters: an Introduction
In this way we solved the problem from the point of view of the thermodynamics (see, e.g., Tozzi & Norman 2001).

Overview and Charge -- Snowmass Workshop 2005
The numerical code employed in this paper is based on the modified version of the ZEUS2D (Stone & Norman 1992) for the applications to the supernova studies (Kotake et al. 2003), in which the tabulated realistic equation of state (EOS) based on the relativistic mean field theory (Shen et al. 1998) was implemented.
Gravitational Radiation from Standing Accretion Shock Instability in Core-Collapse Supernovae
Some of them could be the possible progenitors of core-collapse supernovae and γ -ray bursts, especially in a low metallicity environment (e.g., Hirschi et al. 2005; Petrovic et al. 2005; Yoon & Langer 2005; Langer & Norman 2006; Woosley & Heger 2006; Fruchter et al. 2006).

Escape of ionizing radiation from star forming regions in young galaxies
Therefore, the energy is not deposited primarily at the outskirts, as assumed by spherical accretion (“onion-skin”) models (Tozzi & Norman, 2001; Voit et al., 2003) but rather the cluster is heated from the inside-out.
Entropy generation in merging galaxy clusters
Comparing our spectral code with a ZEUS-type finite difference code (Stone & Norman 1992), similar results are obtained with a finite difference resolution two to three times higher than the spectral resolution.
