We present a two-dimensional (2D) fitting algorithm (GALFIT, ver. 3) with new capabilities to study the structural components of galaxies and other astronomical objects in digital images. Our
The eleventh and twelfth data releases of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: final data from SDSS-III
The third generation of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS-III) took data from 2008 to 2014 using the original SDSS wide-field imager, the original and an upgraded multi-object fiber-fed optical
MAMBO Mapping Of Spitzer c2d Small Clouds And Cores
Aims. To study the structure of nearby (<500 pc) dense starless and star-forming cores with the particular goal to identify and understand evolutionary trends in core properties, and to explore the
The statistics of lambda CDM Halo Concentrations
We use the Millennium Simulation (MS) to study the statistics of Λ cold dark matter (ΛCDM) halo concentrations at z= 0. Our results confirm that the average halo concentration declines monotonically
A Method of Correcting Near‐Infrared Spectra for Telluric Absorption*
We present a method for correcting near-infrared medium-resolution spectra for telluric absorption. The method makes use of a spectrum of an A0 V star, observed near in time and close in air mass to
PMAS : The potsdam multi-aperture spectrophotometer. I. Design, manufacture, and performance
We describe the design, manufacture, commissioning, and performance of PMAS, the Potsdam Multi-Aperture Spectrophotometer. PMAS is a dedicated integral field spectrophotometer optimized to cover the
alpha-, r-, and s-process element trends in the Galactic thin and thick disks
From a detailed elemental abundance analysis of 102 F and G dwarf starswe present abundance trends in the Galactic thin and thick disks for 14elements (O, Na, Mg, Al, Si, Ca, Ti, Cr, Fe, Ni, Zn, Y,
The structural and scaling properties of nearby galaxy clusters. II. The M-T relation
Using a sample of ten nearby ($z\lesssim 0.15$), relaxed galaxy clusters in the temperature range [2–9]$~\rm keV$, we have investigated the scaling relation between the mass at various density
Offline Handwriting Recognition with Multidimensional Recurrent Neural Networks
This paper introduces a globally trained offline handwriting recogniser that takes raw pixel data as input and does not require any alphabet specific preprocessing, and can therefore be used unchanged for any language.
Discovery of Luminous Pulsed Hard X-Ray Emission from Anomalous X-Ray Pulsars 1RXS J1708–4009, 4U 0142+61, and 1E 2259+586 by INTEGRAL and RXTE
We investigated the time-averaged high-energy spectral characteristics of the persistent anomalous X-ray pulsars (AXPs) 1RXS J1708-4009, 4U 0142+61, 1E 2259+586, and 1E 1048.1-5937, using RXTE PCA
