The 2dF galaxy redshift survey: near-infrared galaxy luminosity functions
We combine the Two Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS) Extended Source Catalogue and the 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey to produce an infrared selected galaxy catalogue with 17 173 measured redshifts. We use
The Galaxy in Context: Structural, Kinematic, and Integrated Properties
Our Galaxy, the Milky Way, is a benchmark for understanding disk galaxies. It is the only galaxy whose formation history can be studied using the full distribution of stars from faint dwarfs to
Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA): stellar mass estimates
This paper describes the first catalogue of photometrically derived stellar mass estimates for intermediate-redshift (z < 0.65; median z= 0.2) galaxies in the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA)
Galaxy ecology: groups and low-density environments in the SDSS and 2dFGRS
We analyse the observed correlation between galaxy environment and Halpha emission-line strength, using volume-limited samples and group catalogues of 24 968 galaxies at 0.05 < z < 0.095, drawn from
The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: The environmental dependence of galaxy star formation rates near clusters
We have measured the equivalent width of the Hα emission line for 11 006 galaxies brighter than M_b-=-−19 (Ω_Λ = 0.7, Ω_m = 0.3, H_0 = 70 km s^(−1) Mpc^(−1)) at 0.05 < z < 0.1 in the 2dF Galaxy
The New Galaxy: Signatures of Its Formation
▪ Abstract The formation and evolution of galaxies is one of the great outstanding problems of astrophysics. Within the broad context of hierachical structure formation, we have only a crude picture
The Sydney-AAO Multi-object Integral field spectrograph
We demonstrate a novel technology that combines the power of the multi-object spectrograph with the spatial multiplex advantage of an integral field spectrograph (IFS). The SydneyAAO (Australian
The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: the power spectrum and the matter content of the Universe
The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey has now measured in excess of 160 000 galaxy redshifts. This paper presents the power spectrum of the galaxy distribution, calculated using a direct Fourier transform
The 2dF-SDSS LRG and QSO (2SLAQ) survey: the z < 2.1 quasar luminosity function from 5645 quasars to g=21.85
We have used the Two-Degree Field (2dF) instrument on the Anglo-Australian Telescope (AAT) to obtain redshifts of a sample of z 21 deep surveys for quasars. The 2SLAQ data exhibit no well-defined
A scheme that disperses the stars spawned by an N-body particle, in such a way that the phase-space density of the spawned stars is consistent with that of the N- body particles.
