The optical and near-infrared properties of galaxies. I. Luminosity and stellar mass functions
We use a large sample of galaxies from the Two Micron All Sky Survey(2MASS) and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) to calculate galaxy luminosity and stellar mass functions in the local Universe. We
Estimating Star Formation Rates from Infrared and Radio Luminosities: The Origin of the Radio-Infrared Correlation
I have assembled a diverse sample of galaxies from the literature with far-ultraviolet (FUV), optical, infrared (IR), and radio luminosities to explore the calibration of radio-derived and IR-derived
Nearly 5000 Distant Early-Type Galaxies in COMBO-17: A Red Sequence and Its Evolution since z ~ 1
We present the rest-frame colors and luminosities of ~25,000 mR 24 galaxies in the redshift range 0.2 < z ≤ 1.1 drawn from 0.78 deg2 of the COMBO-17 survey (Classifying Objects by Medium-Band
Spectroscopic+photometric redshifts, stellar mass estimates, and rest-frame colors from the 3D-HST survey are combined with structural parameter measurements from CANDELS imaging to determine the
The Milky Way’s Circular Velocity Curve to 60 kpc and an Estimate of the Dark Matter Halo Mass from the Kinematics of ~2400 SDSS Blue Horizontal-Branch Stars
We derive new constraints on the mass of the Milky Way's dark matter halo, based on 2401 rigorously selected blue horizontal-branch halo stars from SDSS DR6. This sample enables construction of the
The Pan-STARRS1 Surveys
Pan-STARRS1 has carried out a set of distinct synoptic imaging sky surveys including the $3\pi$ Steradian Survey and the Medium Deep Survey in 5 bands ($grizy_{P1}$). The mean 5$\sigma$ point source
CANDELS: The Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey
The Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey (CANDELS) is designed to document the first third of galactic evolution, over the approximate redshift (z) range 8-1.5. It will
Toward an Understanding of the Rapid Decline of the Cosmic Star Formation Rate
We present a first analysis of deep 24 μm observations with the Spitzer Space Telescope of a sample of nearly 1500 galaxies in a thin redshift slice, 0.65 ≤ z < 0.75. We combine the infrared data
A catalogue of the Chandra Deep Field South with multi-colour classification and photometric redshifts from COMBO-17
We present the COMBO-17 object catalogue of the Chandra Deep Field South for public use, covering a field which is $31\farcm5$ $\times$ $30\arcmin$ in size. This catalogue lists astrometry,
Candels: The cosmic assembly near-infrared deep extragalactic legacy survey - The hubble space telescope observations, imaging data products, and mosaics
This paper describes the Hubble Space Telescope imaging data products and data reduction procedures for the Cosmic Assembly Near-infrared Deep Extragalactic Legacy Survey (CANDELS). This survey is
