The Milky Way's circular velocity curve between 4 and 14 kpc from APOGEE data
We measure the Milky Way's rotation curve over the Galactocentric range 4 kpc R 14 kpc from the first year of data from the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment. We model theExpand

CHEMICAL CARTOGRAPHY with APOGEE: METALLICITY DISTRIBUTION FUNCTIONS and the CHEMICAL STRUCTURE of the MILKY WAY DISK
Using a sample of 69,919 red giants from the SDSS-III/APOGEE Data Release 12, we measure the distribution of stars in the [/Fe] versus [Fe/H] plane and the metallicity distribution functions (MDFs)Expand
