Local kinematics and the local standard of rest
TLDR
We re-examine the stellar kinematics of the solar neighbourhood in terms of the velocity υ� of the Sun with respect to the local standard of rest. Expand

Chemical evolution with radial mixing
Models of the chemical evolution of our Galaxy are extended to include radial migration of stars and flow of gas through the disc. The models track the production of both iron and α-elements. A modelExpand

Understanding the kinematics of Galactic Centre gas
A coherent picture is constructed on the Galaxy's H I, CO and CS emissions in the region |l| ≤ 10°, |b| ≤ 0.5°. The flow of gas at the Galactic Centre is dominated by a bar that has corotation at r =Expand

The photometric structure of the inner Galaxy
The light distribution in the inner few kiloparsecs of the Milky Way is recovered non­ parametrically from a dust-corrected near-infrared COBEIDIRBE surface brightness map of the inner Galaxy. TheExpand

GALAXIA: A CODE TO GENERATE A SYNTHETIC SURVEY OF THE MILKY WAY
TLDR
We present here a fast code for creating a synthetic survey of the Milky Way. Expand

Origin and structure of the Galactic disc(s)
We examine the chemical and dynamical structure in the solar neighbourhood of a model Galaxy that is the endpoint of a simulation of the chemical evolution of the Milky Way in the presence of radialExpand
