An eclipsing-binary distance to the Large Magellanic Cloud accurate to two per cent
Determinations of the distances to eight long-period, late-type eclipsing systems in the Large Magellanic Cloud, composed of cool, giant stars, provide a firm base for a 3-per-cent determination of the Hubble constant. Expand
The MACHO Project: Microlensing Results from 5.7 Years of Large Magellanic Cloud Observations
We report on our search for microlensing toward the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Analysis of 5.7 yr of photometry on 11.9 million stars in the LMC reveals 13-17 microlensing events. A detailedExpand
The metal content of bulge field stars from FLAMES-GIRAFFE spectra - I. Stellar parameters and iron abundances
Aims. We determine the iron distribution function (IDF) for bulge field stars, in three different fields along the Galactic minor axis and at latitudes b = −4 ◦ , b = −6 ◦ ,a ndb = −12 ◦ . A fourthExpand
LSST Science Book, Version 2.0
A survey that can cover the sky in optical bands over wide fields to faint magnitudes with a fast cadence will enable many of the exciting science opportunities of the next decade. The Large SynopticExpand
The N2K Consortium. II. A Transiting Hot Saturn around HD 149026 with a Large Dense Core
Doppler measurements from Subaru and Keck have revealed radial velocity variations in the V = 8.15, G0 IV star HD 149026 consistent with a Saturn-mass planet in a 2.8766 day orbit. PhotometricExpand
The Fourteenth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: First Spectroscopic data from the extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey and from the second phase of the Apache Point
The fourth generation of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-IV) has been in operation since 2014 July. This paper describes the second data release from this phase, and the 14th from SDSS overallExpand
The MACHO Project: Microlensing Optical Depth Toward the Galactic Bulge from Difference Image Analysis
We present the microlensing optical depth toward the Galactic bulge based on the detection of 99 events found in our Difference Image Analysis (DIA) survey. This analysis encompasses 3 yr of data,Expand
Oxygen, Sodium, Magnesium and Aluminium as tracers of the Galactic Bulge Formation
Aims. This paper investigates the peculiar behaviour of the light even (alpha-elements) and odd atomic number elements in red giants in the galactic bulge, both in terms of the chemical evolution ofExpand
Reddening and metallicity maps of the Milky Way bulge from VVV and 2MASS II. The complete high resolution extinction map and implications for Galactic bulge studies
Context. The Milky Way bulge is the nearest galactic bulge and the most readily accessible laboratory for studies of stellar populations in spheroids based on individual stellar abundances andExpand
