The Origin of Cold Fronts in the Cores of Relaxed Galaxy Clusters
Chandra X-ray observations revealed the presence of cold fronts (sharp contact discontinuities between gas regions with different temperatures and densities) in the centers of many, if not most,
Star formation along the Hubble sequence: Radial structure of the star formation of CALIFA galaxies
The aim of this paper is to characterize the radial structure of the star formation rate (SFR) in galaxies in the nearby Universe as represented by the CALIFA survey. The sample under study contains
On the physical origin of dark matter density profiles
The radial mass distribution of dark matter haloes is investigated within the framework of the spherical infall model. We present a new formulation of spherical collapse including non-radial motions,
Haloes gone MAD: The Halo-Finder Comparison Project
We present a detailed comparison of fundamental dark matter halo properties retrieved by a substantial number of different halo finders. These codes span a wide range of techniques including
Shape of the oxygen abundance profiles in CALIFA face-on spiral galaxies
We measured the gas abundance profiles in a sample of 122 face-on spiral galaxies observed by the CALIFA survey and included all spaxels whose line emission was consistent with star formation. This
Localized starbursts in dwarf galaxies produced by impact of low metallicity cosmic gas clouds
Models of galaxy formation predict that gas accretion from the cosmic web is a primary driver of star formation over cosmic history. Except in very dense environments where galaxy mergers are also
The radial structure of galaxy groups and clusters
ABSTRACT Simple self-consistent models of galaxy groups and clusters are tested against the re-sults of high-resolutionadiabatic gasdynamicalsimulations. We investigate two modelsbased on the
We present PIPE3D, an analysis pipeline based on the FIT3D fitting tool, developed to explore the properties of the stellar populations and ionized gas of integral field spectroscopy (IFS) data.
Adiabatic scaling relations of galaxy clusters
The aim of this work is to show that, contrary to popular belief, galaxy clusters are not expected to be self-similar, even when the only energy sources available are gravity and shock-wave heating.
Numerical estimation of densities
We present a novel technique, dubbed FiEstAS, to estimate the underlying density field from a discrete set of sample points in an arbitrary multidimensional space. FiEstAS assigns a volume to each
