Detailed structural decomposition of galaxy images
We present a two-dimensional fitting algorithm (GALFIT) designed to extract structural components from galaxy images, with emphasis on closely modeling light profiles of spatially well-resolved,
DETAILED DECOMPOSITION OF GALAXY IMAGES. II. BEYOND AXISYMMETRIC MODELS
We present a two-dimensional (2D) fitting algorithm (GALFIT, ver. 3) with new capabilities to study the structural components of galaxies and other astronomical objects in digital images. Our
The Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS): Overview*
The Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) is designed to probe the correlated evolution of galaxies, star formation, active galactic nuclei (AGNs), and dark matter (DM) with large-scale structure (LSS)
The First Release COSMOS Optical and Near-IR Data and Catalog
TLDR
Panchromatic number counts are constructed which confirm that both the geometry of the universe and the galaxy population are evolving and that both Stellar and galaxy colors and counts agree well with the expected values.
The Chandra COSMOS Survey. I. Overview and Point Source Catalog
The Chandra COSMOS Survey (C-COSMOS) is a large, 1.8 Ms, Chandra program that has imaged the central 0.5 deg^2 of the COSMOS field (centered at 10 ^h , +02 ^o ) with an effective exposure of ~160 ks,
Probing the Coevolution of Supermassive Black Holes and Galaxies Using Gravitationally Lensed Quasar Hosts
In the present-day universe, supermassive black hole masses (MBH) appear to be strongly correlated with their galaxy’s bulge luminosity, among other properties. In this study, we explore the
Identifying Luminous Active Galactic Nuclei in Deep Surveys: Revised IRAC Selection Criteria
Spitzer/IRAC selection is a powerful tool for identifying luminous active galactic nuclei (AGNs). For deep IRAC data, however, the AGN selection wedges currently in use are heavily contaminated by
The VLA-COSMOS Survey. II. Source Catalog of the Large Project
The VLA-COSMOS Large Project is described and its scientific objective is discussed. We present a catalog of ~3600 radio sources found in the 2 deg^2 COSMOS field at 1.4 GHz. The observations in the
THE FIRST BRIGHT QUASAR SURVEY. II. 60 NIGHTS AND 1200 SPECTRA LATER
We have used the Very Large Array (VLA) FIRST survey and the Automated Plate Measuring Facility (APM) catalog of the Palomar Observatory Sky Survey I (POSS-I) plates as the basis for constructing a
