A Practical Relativistic Model for Microarcsecond Astrometry in Space
We develop a practical model for relativistic reduction of positional observations with an accuracy of 1 μas, which is expected to be attained in future space astrometry missions. All relativisticExpand

Gaia Data Release 1 - Reference frame and optical properties of ICRF sources
Context. As part of the data processing for Gaia Data Release 1 (Gaia DR1) a special astrometric solution was computed, the so-called auxiliary quasar solution. This gives positions for selectedExpand

THE IAU 2000 RESOLUTIONS FOR ASTROMETRY CELESTIAL MECHANICS AND METROLOGY IN THE RELATIVISTIC FRAMEWORK: EXPLANATORY SUPPLEMENT
We discuss the IAU resolutions B1.3, B1.4, B1.5, and B1.9 that were adopted during the 24th General Assembly in Manchester, 2000, and provides details on and explanations for these resolutions. It isExpand

Microarcsecond Astrometry in Space: Relativistic Effects and Reduction of Observations
The framework of General Relativity is applied to the problem of reduction of high-precision astrometric observations of the order of 1 μarcsec. Such precision is expected to be attained in the notExpand

Gaia Data Release 2: Observational Hertzsprung-Russell diagrams
Context. Gaia Data Release 2 provides high-precision astrometry and three-band photometry for about 1.3 billion sources over the full sky. The precision, accuracy, and homogeneity of both astrometryExpand

Analysis of astrometric catalogues with vector spherical harmonics
Aims. We compare stellar catalogues with position and proper motion components using a decomposition on a set of orthogonal vector spherical harmonics. We aim to show the theoretical and practicalExpand

Gaia Data Release 2. The celestial reference frame (Gaia-CRF2)
Context. The second release of Gaia data (Gaia DR2) contains the astrometric parameters for more than half a million quasars. This set defines a kinematically non-rotating reference frame in theExpand

Light propagation in the gravitational field of moving bodies by means of Lorentz transformation: I. Mass monopoles moving with constant velocities
We show how to derive the equations of light propagation in the gravitational field of uniformly moving mass monopoles without formulating and integrating the differential equations of lightExpand
