HEAD meeting 2004

Just got back from New Orleans, where I attended the eighth High-Energy Astrophysics Divisional meeting. The highlight was almost certainly the detection of 45 Hz burst oscillations in EXO 0748-676 (see also astro-ph/0409384), a much lower frequency than the previous minimum of 270 Hz (for 4U 1916-053). There was lots of other fun stuff going on, as usual. I presented two posters (links to PS files):
Thermonuclear bursts observed by RXTE: The MIT catalog
Thermonuclear bursts from millisecond X-ray pulsars
