LSST: From Science Drivers to Reference Design and Anticipated Data Products
The LSST design is driven by four main science themes: probing dark energy and dark matter, taking an inventory of the solar system, exploring the transient optical sky, and mapping the Milky Way.
On searches for pulsed emission with application to four globular cluster X-ray sources - NGC 1851, 6441, 6624, and 6712
We present the results of searches for periodic pulsations in the X-ray emission from four globular cluster sources, NGC 1851, NGC 6441, NGC 6624, and NGC 6712. The data were obtained by the Monitor
The X-Ray Observatory Suzaku
High-sensitivity wide-band X-ray spectroscopy is the key feature of the Suzaku X-ray observatory, launched on 2005 July 10. This paper summarizes the spacecraft, in-orbit performance, operations, and
LSST Science Book, Version 2.0
A survey that can cover the sky in optical bands over wide fields to faint magnitudes with a fast cadence will enable many of the exciting science opportunities of the next decade. The Large Synoptic
X-ray spectroscopic constraints on cooling-flow models for clusters of galaxies
We present high-resolution X-ray spectra of 14 putative cooling-flow clusters of galaxies obtained with the Reflection Grating Spectrometer on XMM-Newton. The clusters in the sample span a large
XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer Observations of Discrete Soft-X-ray Emission Features from NGC 1068
We present the first high-resolution, soft X-ray spectrum of the prototypical Seyfert 2 galaxy, NGC 1068. This spectrum was obtained with the XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer (RGS).
The sloan digital sky survey-II supernova survey: technical summary
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey-II (SDSS-II) has embarked on a multi-year project to identify and measure light curves for intermediate-redshift (0.05 < z < 0.35) Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) using
Laboratory Measurements and Modeling of the Fe XVII X-Ray Spectrum
Detailed measurements, line identifications, and modeling calculations of the Fe XVII L-shell emission spectrum between 9.8 and 17.5 A are presented. The measurements were carried out on an electron
High Resolution Observations of the Elliptical Galaxy NGC 4636 with the Reflection Grating Spectrometer On-Board XMM-Newton
We present the first high spectral resolution X-ray observation of the giant elliptical galaxy NGC 4636, obtained with the Reflection Grating Spectrometer on-board the XMM-Newton Observatory. The
