ON THE MAXIMUM LUMINOSITY OF GALAXIES AND THEIR CENTRAL BLACK HOLES: FEEDBACK FROM MOMENTUM-DRIVEN WINDS
We investigate large-scale galactic winds driven by momentum deposition. Momentum injection is provided by (1) radiation pressure produced by the continuum absorption and scattering of photons onExpand

Radiation Pressure-supported Starburst Disks and Active Galactic Nucleus Fueling
We consider the structure of marginally Toomre-stable starburst disks under the assumption that radiation pressure on dust grains provides the dominant vertical support against gravity. ThisExpand

Six months of multiwavelength follow-up of the tidal disruption candidate asassn-14li and implied tde rates from asas-sn
We present ground-based and Swift photometric and spectroscopic observations of the candidate tidal disruption event (TDE) ASASSN-14li, found at the center of PGC043234 (d ' 90 Mpc) by the All-SkyExpand

Magnetic Fields in Starburst Galaxies and the Origin of the FIR-Radio Correlation
We estimate minimum energy magnetic fields (Bmin) for a sample of galaxies with measured gas surface densities, spanning more than four orders of magnitude in surface density, from normal spirals toExpand

The Relationship between Molecular Gas Tracers and Kennicutt-Schmidt Laws
We provide a model for how Kennicutt-Schmidt (KS) laws, which describe the correlation between star formation rate and gas surface or volume density, depend on the molecular line chosen to trace theExpand

The Cosmic Core-collapse Supernova Rate does not match the Massive-Star Formation Rate
We identify a "supernova rate problem": the measured cosmic core-collapse supernova rate is a factor of ~ 2 smaller (with significance ~ 2 sigma) than that predicted from the measured cosmicExpand

A 4,700-Year Record of Lake Level and Isostasy for Lake Michigan
Abstract Four relative lake-level curves (RLLCs), produced from five sites bordering Lake Michigan, show similar timings of high and low lake-levels during the late Holocene. However, glacialExpand

The Physics of Proto-Neutron Star Winds: Implications for r-Process Nucleosynthesis
We solve the general-relativistic steady-state eigenvalue problem of neutrino-driven proto-neutron star winds, which immediately follow core-collapse supernova explosions. We provide velocity,Expand

Discovery of the Dust-Enshrouded Progenitor of SN 2008S with Spitzer
We report the discovery of the progenitor of the recent Type IIn SN 2008S in the nearby galaxy NGC 6946. Surprisingly, it was not found in deep, preexplosion optical images of its host galaxy takenExpand

The PdBI Arcsecond Whirlpool Survey (PAWS): Environmental Dependence of Giant Molecular Cloud Properties in M51
Using data from the PdBI Arcsecond Whirlpool Survey (PAWS), we have generated the largest extragalactic giant molecular cloud (GMC) catalog to date, containing 1507 individual objects. GMCs in theExpand
