CHEMICAL CARTOGRAPHY with APOGEE: METALLICITY DISTRIBUTION FUNCTIONS and the CHEMICAL STRUCTURE of the MILKY WAY DISK
Using a sample of 69,919 red giants from the SDSS-III/APOGEE Data Release 12, we measure the distribution of stars in the [/Fe] versus [Fe/H] plane and the metallicity distribution functions (MDFs)Expand

Chemodynamical evolution of the Milky Way disk - I. The solar vicinity
[Abridged] In this first paper of this series, we present a new approach for studying the chemo-dynamical evolution in disk galaxies, which consists of fusing disk chemical evolution models withExpand

The Wobbly Galaxy : kinematics north and south with RAVE red-clump giants
The RAdial Velocity Experiment survey, combined with proper motions and distance estimates, can be used to study in detail stellar kinematics in the extended solar neighbourhood (solar suburb). UsingExpand

Vertical density waves in the Milky Way disc induced by the Sagittarius dwarf galaxy
Recently, Widrow and collaborators announced the discovery of vertical density waves in the Milky Way disk. Here we investigate a scenario where these waves were induced by the Sagittarius dwarfExpand

Chemodynamical evolution of the Milky Way disk II: Variations with Galactic radius and height above the disk plane
the date of receipt and acceptance should be inserted later Abstract. In the first paper of this series (paper I) we presented a new approach for studying the chemodynamical evolution in diskExpand

Chemodynamics of the Milky Way - I. The first year of APOGEE data
We investigate the chemo-kinematic properties of the Milky Way disc by exploring the first year of data from the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE), and compare ourExpand

The Gaia-ESO Public Spectroscopic Survey
The Gaia-ESO Public Spectroscopic Survey has begun and will obtain high quality spectroscopy of some 100000 Milky Way stars, in the field and in open clusters, down to magnitude 19, systematically ...

A NEW MECHANISM FOR RADIAL MIGRATION IN GALACTIC DISKS: SPIRAL-BAR RESONANCE OVERLAP
While it has long been known that a large number of short-lived transient spirals can cause stellar migration, here we report that another mechanism is also effective at mixing disks of barredExpand

Evolution of galactic discs: multiple patterns, radial migration, and disc outskirts
We investigate the evolution of galactic disks in N-body Tree-SPH simulations. We find that disks, initially truncated a t three scalelengths, can triple their radial extent, solely driven by seExpand

Tracing chemical evolution over the extent of the Milky Way's Disk with APOGEE Red Clump Stars
We employ the first two years of data from the near-infrared, high-resolution SDSS-III/APOGEE spectroscopic survey to investigate the distribution of metallicity and alpha-element abundances of starsExpand
