The Center for Adaptive Optics Treasury Survey (CATS) aims to combine deep HST images in the optical with deep Keck adaptive optics (AO) data in the near-infrared (NIR) to study distant galaxies, AGN, and supernovae. We recently achieved an important new milestone by securing the first Keck laser guide star AO image of faint galaxies. Six galaxies with(More)
In this the first of a series of Letters, we present a panchromatic data set in the Extended Groth Strip region of the sky. Our survey, the All-Wavelength Extended Groth Strip International Survey (AEGIS), aims to study the physical properties and evolutionary processes of galaxies at . It includes the following deep, wide-field imaging data sets: z ∼ 1(More)
The mechanics of the intervertebral disc (IVD) under cyclic loading are investigated via a one-dimensional poroelastic model and experiment. The poroelastic model, based on that of Biot (J. Appl. Phys. 12 (1941) 155; J. Appl. Mech. 23 (1956) 91), includes a power-law relation between porosity and permeability, and a linear relation between the osmotic(More)
Galactic winds are a prime suspect for the metal enrichment of the intergalactic medium and may have a strong influence on the chemical evolution of galaxies and the nature of QSO absorption line systems. We use a sample of 1406 galaxy spectra at z ∼ 1.4 from the DEEP2 redshift survey to show that blueshifted Mg ii λλ 2796, 2803Å absorption is ubiquitous in(More)
The specific globular cluster frequencies (S N) for 24 dwarf elliptical (dE) galaxies in the Virgo and Fornax Clusters and the Leo Group imaged with the Hubble Space Telescope are presented. Combining all available data, we find that for nucleated dEs — which are spatially distributed like giant ellipticals in galaxy clusters — ¯ S N (dE, N) = 6.5 ± 1.2 and(More)
We use morphological information of X-ray selected AGN hosts to set limits on the fraction of the accretion density of the Universe at z ≈ 1 that is not likely to be associated with major mergers. Deep X-ray observations are combined with high resolution optical data from the Hubble Space Telescope in the AEGIS, GOODS North and GOODS South fields to explore(More)
The reaction γp → pπ 0 η has been studied with the CBELSA detector at the tagged photon beam of the Bonn electron stretcher facility. The reaction shows contributions from ∆ + (1232)η, N (1535) + π 0 and pa0(980) as intermediate states. A partial wave analysis suggests that the reaction proceeds via formation of six for which pole positions and decay(More)
Testing theories of hierarchical structure formation requires estimating the distribution of galaxy morphologies and its change with redshift. One aspect of this investigation involves identifying galaxies with disturbed morphologies (e.g. merging galaxies). This is often done by summarizing galaxy images using, e.g. the concentration, asymmetry and(More)
Abstract The goal of the present research was to identify the genes that are differentially expressed between two lineages of Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei displaying different susceptibilities to Taura syndrome virus (TSV) and to understand the molecular pathways involved in resistance to the disease. An oligonucleotide microarray was(More)
