The MACHO Project: Microlensing Results from 5.7 Years of Large Magellanic Cloud Observations
We report on our search for microlensing toward the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC). Analysis of 5.7 yr of photometry on 11.9 million stars in the LMC reveals 13-17 microlensing events. A detailedExpand
The MACHO Project Large Magellanic Cloud Microlensing Results from the First Two Years and the Nature of the Galactic Dark Halo
The MACHO Project is a search for dark matter in the form of massive compact halo objects (MACHOs). Photometric monitoring of millions of stars in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), Small MagellanicExpand
The ACS Nearby Galaxy Survey Treasury
The ACS Nearby Galaxy Survey Treasury (ANGST) is a systematic survey to establish a legacy of uniform multi-color photometry of resolved stars for a volume-limited sample of nearby galaxies (D 14Expand
ARGOS - III. Stellar populations in the Galactic bulge of the Milky Way
We present the metallicity results from the ARGOS spectroscopic survey of the Galactic bulge. Our aim is to understand the formation of the Galactic bulge: did it form via mergers, as expected fromExpand
An H I Aperture Synthesis Mosaic of the Large Magellanic Cloud
We present the results of an H I aperture synthesis mosaic of the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), made by combining data from 1344 separate pointing centers using the Australia Telescope Compact ArrayExpand
The radial velocity dispersion profile of the Galactic halo : constraining the density profile of the dark halo of the Milky Way
We have compiled a new sample of 240 halo objects with accurate distance and radial velocity measurements, including globular clusters, satellite galaxies, field blue horizontal branch (FHB) starsExpand
The Structure of Young Star Clusters in the Large Magellanic Cloud
The surface brightness profiles presented for 10 rich star clusters in the LMC extend over 8-10 mag in surface brightness, and to radii of 4 arcmin. The crossing times are shorter than the ages ofExpand
The Macho Project: 45 Candidate Microlensing Events from the First Year Galactic Bulge Data
We report the detection of 45 candidate microlensing events in fields toward the Galactic bulge. These come from the analysis of 24 fields containing 12.6 million stars observed for 190 days in 1993.Expand
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 pictureExpand
