THE FIRST SYSTEMATIC STUDY OF TYPE Ibc SUPERNOVA MULTI-BAND LIGHT CURVES
We present detailed optical photometry for 25 Type Ibc supernovae (SNe Ibc) within d 150 Mpc obtained with the robotic Palomar 60 inch telescope in 2004-2007. This study represents the first uniform,Expand

The mass assembly history of field galaxies: detection of an evolving mass limit for star forming galaxies
We characterize the mass-dependent evolution of more than 8000 galaxies using spectroscopic redshifts from the DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey in the range 0.4 < z < 1.4 and stellar masses calculatedExpand

Efficiencies of Low-Mass Star and Star Cluster Formation
Using a quantitative model for bipolar outflows driven by hydromagnetic protostellar winds, we calculate the efficiency of star formation assuming that available gas is either converted into stars orExpand

Very Low Mass Stars and Brown Dwarfs in Taurus-Auriga
We present high-resolution optical spectra obtained with the HIRES spectrograph on the W. M. Keck I Telescope of seven low-mass T Tauri stars (LMTTs) and brown dwarfs in Taurus-Auriga. The observedExpand

The ACS Virgo Cluster Survey. XV. The Formation Efficiencies of Globular Clusters in Early-Type Galaxies: The Effects of Mass and Environment*
The fraction of stellar mass contained in globular clusters (GCs), also measured by number as the specific frequency, is a fundamental quantity that reflects both a galaxy's early star formation andExpand

THE IMPACT OF COLD GAS ACCRETION ABOVE A MASS FLOOR ON GALAXY SCALING RELATIONS
Using the cosmological baryonic accretion rate and normal star formation (SF) efficiencies, we present a very simple model for star-forming galaxies that accounts for the mass and redshiftExpand

MEASURED METALLICITIES AT THE SITES OF NEARBY BROAD-LINED TYPE Ic SUPERNOVAE AND IMPLICATIONS FOR THE SUPERNOVAE GAMMA-RAY BURST CONNECTION*
We compare the chemical abundances at the sites of 12 nearby (z < 0.14) Type Ic supernovae (SN Ic) that showed broad lines, but had no observed gamma-ray burst (GRB), with the chemical abundances inExpand

The Stellar Mass Tully-Fisher Relation to z=1.2
We combine newly measured rotation velocities, velocity dispersions, and stellar masses to construct stellar mass Tully-Fisher relations (M*TFRs) for 544 galaxies with strong emission lines at 0.1 <Expand

Dynamical Formation of Close Binary Systems in Globular Clusters
We know from observations that globular clusters are very efficient catalysts in forming unusual short-period binary systems or their offspring, such as low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs; neutron starsExpand

Exploring the Optical Transient Sky with the Palomar Transient Factory
The Palomar Transient Factory (PTF) is a wide-field experiment designed to investigate the optical transient and variable sky on time scales from minutes to years. PTF uses the CFH12k mosaic camera,Expand
