LSST: From Science Drivers to Reference Design and Anticipated Data Products
TLDR
The LSST design is driven by four main science themes: probing dark energy and dark matter, taking an inventory of the solar system, exploring the transient optical sky, and mapping the Milky Way. Expand
The Size Distribution of Trans-Neptunian Bodies*
We search 0.02 deg 2 of the invariable plane for trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) 25 AU or more distant using the Advanced Camera for Surveys (ACS) aboard the Hubble Space Telescope. With 22 ks perExpand
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
Debris disk evolution around a stars
We report 24 and/or 70 μm measurements of ~160 A-type main-sequence stars using the Multiband Imaging Photometer for Spitzer (MIPS). Their ages range from 5 to 850 Myr, based on estimates from theExpand
Decay of Planetary Debris Disks
We report new Spitzer 24 � m photometry of 76 main-sequence A-type stars. We combine these results with previously reportedSpitzer24 � m data and 24 and 25 � m photometry from theInfrared SpaceExpand
Debris Disks around Sun-like Stars
We have observed nearly 200 FGK stars at 24 and 70 ?m with the Spitzer Space Telescope. We identify excess infrared emission, including a number of cases where the observed flux is more than 10 timesExpand
The Deep Ecliptic Survey: A Search for Kuiper Belt Objects and Centaurs. II. Dynamical Classification, the Kuiper Belt Plane, and the Core Population
The Deep Ecliptic Survey (DES)?a search optimized for the discovery of Kuiper belt objects (KBOs) with the Blanco and Mayall 4 m telescopes at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory and KittExpand
THE SUBSTELLAR MASS FUNCTION: A BAYESIAN APPROACH
We report our efforts to constrain the form of the low-mass star and brown dwarf mass function via Bayesian inference. Recent surveys of M, L, and T dwarfs in the local solar neighborhood are anExpand
Frequency of Debris Disks around Solar-Type Stars: First Results from a Spitzer MIPS Survey
We have searched for infrared excesses around a well-defined sample of 69 FGK main-sequence field stars. These starswereselectedwithoutregardto theirage,metallicity,oranypreviousdetectionof IRexcess;Expand
Orbital evolution and migration of giant planets: modeling extrasolar planets
Giant planets in circumstellar disks can migrate inward from their initial (formation) positions. Radial migration is caused by inward torques between the planet and the disk, by outward torquesExpand
