Dotti et al discuss the EM signals or binary BH mergers detectable by LISA.

Maschenko et al. show that random bulk gas motions in primordial galaxies act to flatten the central dark matter cusps and hence solve the discrepancy between the predicted sharp cusps and observed flattened distributions.

Juett et al. present absorption edge results for Ne and Fe using HETG observations of X-ray binaries. They measure the Fe depletion onto dust grains and the Ne ionization structure of the ISM.

Kewley et al. analyze 85224 emission-line galaxies from the SDSS and derive a classification scheme which cleanly separates star-forming galaxies, AGN-HII composites, Seyferts and LINERs.

Cornish & Porter used annealed MCMC to extract the parameters for a SMBH binary embedded in a simulated LISA datastream.

Fregeau et al. discuss the detection probabilities with LISA and LIGO for IMBH binary mergers.

Dai et al. stack RASS data for over 4000 clusters selected from the 2MASS catalog and conclude that the relationships between mass, X-ray temperature, and X-ray luminosity are consistent with those for X-ray selected clusters.

McClintock et al. place a lower limit on the dimensional spin parameter for the BH in GRS1915 of 0.98 by modelling the X-ray continuum.

Schurch & Done model the soft X-ray emission from AGN as a failed disk wind where material is blown off the inner regions of the disk and falls back down onto the outer regions.

Rephaeli et al. analyze > 500 ksec of RXTE data on A2163 and derive a model where ~25 of the 3-50 keV emission is from a non-thermal component.

Sun et al. present a survey of the X-ray coronae of galaxies in nearby clusters.
