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 opticalExpand

Structure and Kinematics of the Stellar Halos and Thick Disks of the Milky Way Based on Calibration Stars from Sloan Digital Sky Survey DR7
The structure and kinematics of the recognized stellar components of the Milky Way are explored, based on well-determined atmospheric parameters and kinematic quantities for 32360 "calibration stars"Expand

Stellar and Total Baryon Mass Fractions in Groups and Clusters Since Redshift 1
We investigate if the discrepancy between estimates of the total baryon mass fraction obtained from observations of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) and of galaxy groups/clusters persists when aExpand

Bar-driven Transport of Molecular Gas to Galactic Centers and Its Consequences
We study the characteristics of molecular gas in the central regions of spiral galaxies on the basis of our CO(J = 1-0) imaging survey of 20 nearby spiral galaxies using the NRO and OVRO millimeterExpand

THE MAGELLANIC MOPRA ASSESSMENT (MAGMA). I. THE MOLECULAR CLOUD POPULATION OF THE LARGE MAGELLANIC CLOUD
We present the properties of an extensive sample of molecular clouds in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) mapped at 11?pc resolution in the CO(1-0) line. Targets were chosen based on a limiting COExpand

A natural explanation for periodic X-ray outbursts in Be/X-ray binaries
When applied to Be/X-ray binaries, the viscous decretion disc model, which can successfully account for most properties of Be stars, naturally predicts the truncation of the circumstellar disc. TheExpand

Temperature and Entropy Profiles of Nearby Cooling Flow Clusters Observed with XMM-Newton and the Effervescent Heating Model
We investigate temperature and entropy profiles of 13 nearby cooling flow clusters observed with the EPIC cameras of XMM-Newton. When normalized and scaled by the virial radius the temperatureExpand

SPITZER SPACE TELESCOPE INFRARED IMAGING AND SPECTROSCOPY OF THE CRAB NEBULA
We present 3.6, 4.5, 5.8, 8.0, 24, and 70 μm images of the Crab Nebula obtained with the Spitzer Space Telescope IRAC and MIPS cameras, low- and high-resolution Spitzer IRS spectra of selectedExpand

Complex organic molecules in protoplanetary disks
Context. Protoplanetary disks are vital objects in star and planet formation, possessing all the material, gas and dust, which may form a planetary system orbiting the new star. Small, simpleExpand

The first appearance of the red sequence of galaxies in proto-clusters at 2 <~ z <~ 3
We explore the evolved galaxy population in the proto-clusters around four high-z radio galaxies at 2 ≤ z ≤ 3 based on wide-field near-infrared (NIR) imaging. Three of the four fields are knownExpand
