First year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) observations: Preliminary maps and basic results
We present full-sky microwave maps in five frequency bands (23-94 GHz) from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) first-year sky survey. Calibration errors are less than 0.5%, and the low
The eleventh and twelfth data releases of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: final data from SDSS-III
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
The Sloan Digital Sky Survey View of the Palomar-Green Bright Quasar Survey
We investigate the extent to which the Palomar-Green (PG) Bright Quasar Survey (BQS) is complete and representative of the general quasar population by comparing it with imaging and spectroscopy from
Nucleosynthesis in massive stars with improved nuclear and stellar physics
We present the first calculations to follow the evolution of all stable nuclei and their radioactive progeni- tors in stellar models computed from the onset of central hydrogen burning through
FIRST-YEAR WILKINSON MICROWAVE ANISOTROPY PROBE (WMAP) 1 OBSERVATIONS: TEMPERATURE-POLARIZATION CORRELATION
The Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) has mapped the full sky in Stokes I, Q, and U parameters at frequencies of 23, 33, 41, 61, and 94 GHz. We detect correlations between the temperature
Testing X-ray Measurements of Galaxy Clusters with Cosmological Simulations
X-ray observations of galaxy clusters potentially provide powerful cosmological probes if systematics due to our incomplete knowledge of the ICM physics is understood and controlled. In this paper we
Determining the Cosmic Distance Scale from Interferometric Measurements of the Sunyaev-Zeldovich Effect
We determine the distances to 18 galaxy clusters with redshifts ranging from z ~ 0.14 to 0.78 from a maximum likelihood joint analysis of 30 GHz interferometric Sunyaev-Zeldovich effect (SZE) and
First year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) observations: The Angular power spectrum
We present the angular power spectrum derived from the first-year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) sky maps. We study a variety of power spectrum estimation methods and data combinations
First-Year Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) Observations: Parameter Estimation Methodology
We describe our methodology for comparing the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) measurements of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) and other complementary data sets to theoretical
PROBING THE INTERGALACTIC MEDIUM/GALAXY CONNECTION. V. ON THE ORIGIN OF Lyα AND O VI ABSORPTION AT z < 0.2
We analyze the association of galaxies with Lyα and O VI absorption, the most commonly detected transitions of the low-z intergalactic medium (IGM), in the fields of 14 quasars with z em = 0.06-0.57.
