Title: Optical variability in the young Palomar Transit Factory in Orion project
July 6th, 2016 • MR LCR
I will present a detailed analysis of the infrared-radio correlation (IRRC) of star-forming galaxies using data from the COSMOS VLA 3GHz Large Project. This is a ~400 hour radio continuum survey of the COSMOS field with the recently upgraded Very Large Array telescope. It is the most sensitive available radio continuum survey with a cosmologically-significant sky coverage, allowing us to explore galaxy...

Abstract: We measure the clustering of over 92,000 quasars at redshifts 2.2 < z < 3.4 drawn from the final sample of the Baryonic Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) which is by far the largest sample ever used to study quasar clustering at "intermediate" redshifts. We ameliorate the effect of observational systematics on our clustering analyses by weighting our control catalogues of random points by...

Measuring the star formation rate (SFR), defined as the mass of gas converted to stars per year, is taking the pulse of a galaxy. The SFR is a fundamental parameter in theoretical models of galaxy evolution and governs the observed properties of galaxies. The most widely-used empirical measurements of the SFR in both the Milky Way and external galaxies rely on indirect observational tracers sensitive to only...

The Infrared Processing and Analysis Center (IPAC) and the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI), in coordination with the WFIRST Study Office at GSFC and JPL, are pleased to announce that registration is now open for "Community Astrophysics with WFIRST: Guest Observer and Archival Science" - an international meeting to be held in Pasadena from 29 February through 2 March 2016. Detailed information and...

From Pebbles to Planets: There have been many long standing mysteries regarding the formation of our Solar System: How did the cores of the giant planets form in the relatively short timescale available? Why is Mars so small compared to the Earth and Venus? How did the initial planetesimal building blocks of the planets form in the first place? In recent years, theories surrounding the formation of...

Thousands of exoplanets have been discovered, spanning orders of magnitude in planet mass and orbital separation from their host stars, with orbits both excited and dynamically cold. Additionally, a large fraction of this diverse group are part of multi-planet systems. These observations largely represent the planet population at a single stage in their lifetimes; to use them to constrain the planet...
