THE STRUCTURE AND STELLAR CONTENT OF THE OUTER DISKS OF GALAXIES: A NEW VIEW FROM THE Pan-STARRS1 MEDIUM DEEP SURVEY
We present the results of an analysis of Pan-STARRS1 Medium Deep Survey multi-band (grizy) images of a sample of 698 low-redshift disk galaxies that span broad ranges in stellar mass, star-formation
The optical morphologies of galaxies in the IllustrisTNG simulation: a comparison to Pan-STARRS observations
We have generated synthetic images of $\sim$27,000 galaxies from the IllustrisTNG and the original Illustris hydrodynamic cosmological simulations, designed to match Pan-STARRS observations of

Crowdware: A Framework for GPU-Based Public-Resource Computing with Energy-Aware Incentive Mechanism
TLDR
Crowdware is presented, a framework for enabling sustainable GPU-based public-resource computing with a realistic financial incentive mechanism that designs an auction-based resource allocation algorithm and a profit- based resource participation algorithm, explicitly considering the electricity cost of participating resources.
Delivering SKA Science
TLDR
This chapter examines the data flow, storage and processing requirements of a number of key SKA survey science projects to be executed on the baseline SKA1 configuration and proposes that it is time for the SKA project and community to consider the effort and process needed to design and implement a distributed SKA science data system.
omniClassifier: a desktop grid computing system for big data prediction modeling
TLDR
OmniClassifier is a multi-purpose prediction modeling application that provides researchers with a tool for conducting machine learning research within the guidelines of recommended best-practices and is implemented as a desktop grid computing system using the Berkeley Open Infrastructure for Network Computing (BOINC) middleware.

ANATOMY OF A POST-STARBURST MINOR MERGER: A MULTI-WAVELENGTH WFC3 STUDY OF NGC 4150
We present a spatially resolved near-UV/optical study, using the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) on board the Hubble Space Telescope, of NGC 4150, a sub-L*, early-type galaxy (ETG) of around 6 × 109 M☉,
The Galaxy Evolution Explorer: A Space Ultraviolet Survey Mission
We give an overview of the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX), a NASA Explorer Mission launched on 2003 April 28. GALEX is performing the first space UV sky survey, including imaging and grism surveys
Resolved optical–infrared spectral energy distributions of galaxies: universal relations and their break‐down on local scales
A large body of evidence have demonstrated that the global rest-frame optical and infrared colours of galaxies correlate well with each other [i.e. (u−g), with (r− 8 μ m)], as well as with other
Star formation and figure rotation in the early-type galaxy NGC 2974
We present Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX) far-ultraviolet (FUV) and near-ultraviolet (NUV) imaging of the nearby early-type galaxy NGC 2974, along with complementary ground-based optical imaging.
The Pan-STARRS wide-field optical/NIR imaging survey
Pan-STARRS is a highly cost-effective, modular and scalable approach to wide-field optical/NIR imaging. It uses 1.8m telescopes with very large (7 square degree) field of view and revolutionary1.4
Stellar population synthesis at the resolution of 2003
We present a new model for computing the spectral evolution of stellar populations at ages between 1 x 10 5 and 2 x 10 1 0 yr at a resolution of 3 A across the whole wavelength range from 3200 to

The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) will provide the data to support detailed investigations of the distribution of luminous and nonluminous matter in the universe: a photometrically and
A simple model to interpret the ultraviolet, optical and infrared emission from galaxies
We present a simple, largely empirical but physically motivated model to interpret the mid- and far-infrared spectral energy distributions of galaxies consistently with the emission at ultraviolet,
A New Nonparametric Approach to Galaxy Morphological Classification
We present two new nonparametric methods for quantifying galaxy morphology: the relative distribution of the galaxy pixel flux values (the Gini coefficient or G) and the second-order moment of the
A Simple Model for the Absorption of Starlight by Dust in Galaxies
We present a new model for computing the effects of dust on the integrated spectral properties of galaxies, based on an idealized description of the main features of the interstellar medium (ISM).
