STAR FORMATION IN GALAXIES ALONG THE HUBBLE SEQUENCE
Observations of star formation rates (SFRs) in galaxies provide vital clues to the physical nature of the Hubble sequence and are key probes of the evolutionary histories of galaxies. The focus ofExpand

Final Results from the Hubble Space Telescope Key Project to Measure the Hubble Constant
We present here the final results of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Key Project to measure the Hubble constant. We summarize our method, the results, and the uncertainties, tabulate our revisedExpand

The mid-infrared spectrum of star-forming galaxies: Global properties of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon emission
We present a sample of low-resolution 5-38 μm Spitzer IRS spectra of the inner few square kiloparsecs of 59 nearby galaxies spanning a large range of star formation properties. A robust method forExpand

THINGS:THE HI NEARBY GALAXY SURVEY
We present The H I Nearby Galaxy Survey (THINGS), a high spectral (≤5.2 km s–1) and spatial (~6'') resolution survey of H I emission in 34 nearby galaxies obtained using the NRAO Very Large ArrayExpand

SINGS: The SIRTF Nearby Galaxies Survey
The SIRTF Nearby Galaxy Survey is a comprehensive infrared imaging and spectroscopic survey of 75 nearby galaxies. Its primary goal is to characterize the infrared emission of galaxies and theirExpand

DUST-CORRECTED STAR FORMATION RATES OF GALAXIES. II. COMBINATIONS OF ULTRAVIOLET AND INFRARED TRACERS
We present new calibrations of far-ultraviolet (FUV) attenuation as derived from the total infrared to FUV luminosity ratio (IRX) and the FUV-near-UV(NUV) color. We find that the IRX-corrected FUVExpand

OPTICAL SPECTROSCOPY AND NEBULAR OXYGEN ABUNDANCES OF THE SPITZER/SINGS GALAXIES
We present intermediate-resolution optical spectrophotometry of 65 galaxies obtained in support of the Spitzer Infrared Nearby Galaxies Survey (SINGS). For each galaxy we obtain a nuclear,Expand

Dust-corrected Star Formation Rates of Galaxies. I. Combinations of Hα and Infrared Tracers
We combine Halpha emission-line and infrared (IR) continuum measurements of two samples of nearby galaxies to derive dust attenuation-corrected star formation rates (SFRs). We use a simple energyExpand

Star Formation Thresholds in Galactic Disks
We report the first results of a detailed study of the star formation law in a sample of 32 nearby spiral galaxies with well-measured rotation curves, H I and H_2 (as traced by CO) surface densityExpand

Brane dynamics from the Born-Infeld action
Abstract We use the abelian Born-Infeld action for the world-volume gauge field and transverse displacement scalars to explore new aspects of D-brane structure and dynamics. We study several classicExpand
