Mass-loss predictions for O and B stars as a function of metallicity
We have calculated a grid of massive star wind models and mass-loss rates for a wide range of metal abundances between 1=100 Z=Z 10. The calculation of this grid completes the Vink et al. (2000)
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
This is a summary of the 2013 release of the plasma simulation code Cloudy. Cloudy models the ionization, chemical, and thermal state of material that may be exposed to an external radiation field or
Surface brightness profiles and structural parameters for 53 rich stellar clusters in the Large Magellanic Cloud
We have compiled a pseudo-snapshot data set of two-colour observations from the Hubble Space Telescope archive for a sample of 53 rich LMC clusters with ages of 106–1010 yr. We present surface
Bulge n and B/T in High Mass Galaxies: Constraints on the Origin of Bulges in Hierarchical Models
We use the bulge Sersic index n and bulge-to-total mass ratio (B/T) to explore the fundamental question of how bulges form. We perform two-dimensional bulge-disk-bar decomposition on H-band images of
In hot pursuit of the hidden companion of Carinae: An X-ray determination of the wind parameters
We present X-ray spectral ts to a recently obtained Chandra grating spectrum of Carinae, one of the most massive and powerful stars in the Galaxy and which is strongly suspected to be a colliding
We present the Red MSX Source survey, the largest statistically selected catalog of young massive protostars and H II regions to date. We outline the construction of the catalog using mid- and

The mass of the neutron star in Vela X-1 and tidally induced non-radial oscillations in GP Vel
We report new radial velocity observations of GP Vel / HD 77581, the optical companion to the eclipsing X-ray pulsar Vela X-1. Using data spanning more than two complete orbits of the system, we
Empirical calibration of the near-infrared Ca ii triplet — I. The stellar library and index definition
A new stellar library at the near-IR spectral region developed for the empirical calibration of the Ca II triplet and stellar population synthesis modelling is presented. The library covers the range
