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 monotonicallyExpand

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 toExpand

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 densityExpand

Systematic Molecular Differentiation in Starless Cores
We present evidence that low-mass starless cores, the simplest units of star formation, are systematically differentiated in their chemical composition. Some molecules, including CO and CS, almostExpand
