Our paper on the non-linear power spectra from general relativity was accepted to be published in the Part I of ApJ! Here, I said power spectra as we also included the calculation of the velocity power spectrum for this version.

Hmm..the sad news is that the editor of PRL disagree with us for the importance of this result. They suggest to submit the paper to other journals. Do you agree with them? You can check out the paper from [arXiv:1010.3489]. Anyway, this sets two records of mine: 1) first rejection 2) shortest time from submission to rejection (11h56m). I thank PRL editors for their prompt action. -.-;

We have just submitted a short paper on the general relativistic non-linear effect on matter power spectrum to PRL. The result of this paper has to replace [arXiv:0902.4285] (another paper of mine). Yes, it is embarrassing to publish yet another paper on the exactly same subject, especially when the new paper says that the old one is wrong. But, I think the result is very important and deserves to be published! We show that the non-linear effect from GR is negligibly small on all scales and it is okay to use Newtonian perturbation theory for studying the non-linear evolution of the cosmic matter field!!
