The eleventh and twelfth data releases of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: final data from SDSS-III
- S. Alam, F. D. Albareti, +725 authors Key Laboratory of Optical Astronomy
- Physics, Geology
- 5 January 2015
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 optical… Expand
Current Status and Future Prospects of the SNO+ Experiment
SNO+is a large liquid scintillator-based experiment located 2 km underground at SNOLAB, Sudbury,Canada. It reuses the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory detector, consisting of a 12m diameter acrylic… Expand
An accurate tool for the fast generation of dark matter halo catalogues.
We present a new parallel implementation of the PINpointing Orbit Crossing-Collapsed HIerarchical Objects (PINOCCHIO) algorithm, a quick tool, based on Lagrangian Perturbation Theory, for the… Expand
Astrophysical tests of gravity: a screening map of the nearby universe
Astrophysical tests of modified gravity theories in the nearby universe have been emphasized recently by Hui 2009 and Jain 2011. A key element of such tests is the screening mechanism whereby general… Expand
Detection of an ultrabright submillimetre galaxy in the Subaru/XMM-Newton Deep Field using AzTEC/ASTE
We report on the detection of an extremely bright (∼37 mJy at 1100 μm and ∼91 mJy at 880 μm) submillimetre galaxy (SMG), AzTEC-ASTE-SXDF1100.001 (hereafter referred to as SXDF1100.001 or Orochi),… Expand
Poisson-Bracket Approach to the Dynamics of Nematic Liquid Crystals. The Role of Spin Angular Momentum
Nematic liquid crystals are well modeled as a fluid of rigid rods. Starting from this model, we use a Poisson-bracket formalism to derive the equations governing the dynamics of nematic liquid… Expand
A simultaneous search for High-$z$ LAEs and LBGs in the SHARDS survey
We have undertaken a comprehensive search for both Lyman Alpha Emitters (LAEs) and Lyman Break Galaxies (LBGs) in the SHARDS Survey of the GOODS-N field. SHARDS is a deep imaging survey, made with… Expand
Multiple light scattering in anisotropic random media
- H. Stark, Tom C. Lubensky University of Stuttgart, Germany., U. O. Pennsylvania, Philadelphia
- 19 December 1996
In the last decade Diffusing Wave Spectroscopy (DWS) has emerged as a powerful tool to study turbid media. In this article we develop the formalism to describe light diffusion in general anisotropic… Expand
Dark Energy Survey Year 3 Results: Photometric Data Set for Cosmology.
We describe the Dark Energy Survey (DES) photometric data set assembled from the first three years of science operations to support DES Year 3 cosmology analyses, and provide usage notes aimed at the… Expand
