Flash: An adaptive mesh hydrodynamics code for modeling astrophysical thermonuclear flashes
We report on the completion of the first version of a new-generation simulation code, FLASH. The FLASH code solves the fully compressible, reactive hydrodynamic equations and allows for the use ofExpand

Sloan digital sky survey: Early data release
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) is an imaging and spectroscopic survey that will eventually cover approximately one-quarter of the celestial sphere and collect spectra of ≈106 galaxies, 100,000Expand

THE THREE-DIMENSIONAL POWER SPECTRUM OF GALAXIES FROM THE SLOAN DIGITAL SKY SURVEY
We measure the large-scale real-space power spectrum P(k) by using a sample of 205,443 galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, covering 2417 effective square degrees with mean redshift z ≈ 0.1.Expand

The Ensemble Photometric Variability of ~25,000 Quasars in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
Using a sample of over 25,000 spectroscopically confirmed quasars from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey, we show how quasar variability in the rest-frame optical/UV regime depends on rest-frame time lag,Expand

Early-Type Galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. I. The Sample
A sample of nearly 9000 early-type galaxies, in the redshift range 0.01 ≤ z ≤ 0.3, was selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) using morphological and spectral criteria. This paperExpand

Galaxy clustering in early sloan digital sky survey redshift data
We present the first measurements of clustering in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) galaxy redshift survey. Our sample consists of 29,300 galaxies with redshifts 5700 km s-1 ≤ cz ≤ 39,000 km s-1,Expand

The C4 clustering algorithm: clusters of galaxies in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We present the C4 Cluster Catalog, a new sample of 748 clusters of galaxies identified in the spectroscopic sample of the Second Data Release (DR2) of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). The C4Expand

Gamma-Ray Bursts as a Probe of the Very High Redshift Universe
There is increasingly strong evidence that gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are associated with star-forming galaxies and occur near or in the star-forming regions of these galaxies. These associationsExpand

An independent method for determining the age of the universe
An age of 9.3 + or - 2.0 Gyr is derived for the Galactic disk on the basis of comparisons between the sudden drop in the observed luminosity distribution and theoretical evolutionary white dwarfExpand

GLOBAL CHARACTERISTICS OF X-RAY FLASHES AND X-RAY-RICH GAMMA-RAY BURSTS OBSERVED BY HETE-2
We describe and discuss the global properties of 45 gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) observed by HETE-2 during the first 3 years of its mission, focusing on the properties of X-ray flashes (XRFs) andExpand
