GADGET: a code for collisionless and gasdynamical cosmological simulations
Abstract We describe the newly written code GADGET which is suitable both for cosmological simulations of structure formation and for the simulation of interacting galaxies. GADGET evolves
Star Formation in AEGIS Field Galaxies since z = 1.1: The Dominance of Gradually Declining Star Formation, and the Main Sequence of Star-forming Galaxies
We analyze star formation (SF) as a function of stellar mass (M☉) and redshift z in the All-Wavelength Extended Groth Strip International Survey. For 2905 field galaxies, complete to 10^10(10^10.8 )M
Mid-Infrared Selection of Active Galaxies
Mid-infrared photometry provides a robust technique for identifying active galaxies. While the ultraviolet to mid-infrared (λ 5 μm) continuum of stellar populations is dominated by the composite
A Direct Empirical Proof of the Existence of Dark Matter
We present new weak lensing observations of 1E0657-558 (z = 0.296), a unique cluster merger, that enable a direct detection of dark matter, independent of assumptions regarding the nature of the
The distance to the Orion Nebula
We have used the Very Long Baseline Array to measure the trigonometric parallax of several member stars of the Orion Nebula Cluster showing non-thermal radio emission. We have determined the distance
We report the discovery of a galaxy cluster at z = 1.62 located in the Spitzer Wide-Area Infrared Extragalactic survey XMM-LSS field. This structure was selected solely as an overdensity of galaxies
Properties of Globular Cluster Systems in Nearby Early-Type Galaxies
We present a study of globular clusters (GCs) in 17 relatively nearby early-type galaxies, based on deep F555W and F814W images from the Wide Field Planetary Camera 2, on board the Hubble Space
Probing the Evolutionary Status of Starless Cores through N2H+ and N2D+ Observations
We have undertaken a survey of N2H+ and N2D+ toward 31 low-mass starless cores using the IRAM 30 m telescope. Our main objective has been to determine the abundance ratio of N2D+ and N2H+ toward the
Systematic Molecular Differentiation in Starless Cores
We present evidence that low-mass starless cores, the simplest units of star formation, are systematically differentiated in their chemical composition. Some molecules, including CO and CS, almost
Mergers and bulge formation in ΛCDM: Which mergers matter?
We use a suite of semi-empirical models to predict the galaxy-galaxy merger rate and relative contributions to bulge growth as a function of mass (both halo and stellar), redshift, and mass ratio.
