Refined Neutron Star Mass Determinations for Six Eclipsing X-Ray Pulsar Binaries
We present an improved method for determining the mass of neutron stars in eclipsing X-ray pulsar binaries and apply the method to six systems, namely, Vela X-1, 4U 1538-52, SMC X-1, LMC X-4, CenExpand
Testing the asteroseismic scaling relations for Red Giants with Eclipsing Binaries Observed by Kepler
Given the potential of ensemble asteroseismology for understanding fundamental properties of large numbers of stars, it is critical to determine the accuracy of the scaling relations on which theseExpand
Red Giants in Eclipsing Binary and Multiple-star Systems: Modeling and Asteroseismic Analysis of 70 Candidates from Kepler Data
Red giant stars are proving to be an incredible source of information for testing models of stellar evolution, as asteroseismology has opened up a window into their interiors. Such insights are aExpand
KIC 9246715: The Double Red Giant Eclipsing Binary With Odd Oscillations
We combine Kepler photometry with ground-based spectra to present a comprehensive dynamical model of the double red giant eclipsing binary KIC 9246715. While the two stars are very similar in massExpand
Mitigation of LEO Satellite Brightness and Trail Effects on the Rubin Observatory LSST
We report studies on mitigation of optical effects of bright Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) satellites on Vera C. Rubin Observatory and its Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST). These include options forExpand
The Astropy Problem
The Astropy Project (this http URL) is, in its own words, "a community effort to develop a single core package for Astronomy in Python and foster interoperability between Python astronomy packages." For five years this project has been managed, written, and operated as a grassroots, self-organized, almost entirely volunteer effort. Expand
An Overview of the LSST Image Processing Pipelines
This paper provides an overview of the pipelines and algorithms responsible for generating those data products, including high-level, “science-ready” catalogs. Expand
