The total mass of the Large Magellanic Cloud from its perturbation on the Orphan stream
In a companion paper by Koposov et al., RR Lyrae from Gaia Data Release 2 are used to demonstrate that stars in the Orphan stream have velocity vectors significantly misaligned with the stream track,
The Magellanic Inter-Cloud Project (MAGIC) III: first spectroscopic evidence of a dwarf stripping a dwarf
The Magellanic Bridge (MB) is a gaseous stream that links the Large (LMC) and Small (SMC) Magellanic Clouds. Current simulations suggest that the MB forms from a recent interaction between the
Discovery of a thin stellar stream in the SLAMS survey
We report the discovery of a thin stellar stream - which we name the Jet stream - cross- ing the constellations of Hydra and Pyxis. The discovery was made in data from the SLAMS survey, which
Cosmic-Ray-driven Outflows from the Large Magellanic Cloud: Contributions to the LMC Filament
In this paper, we build from previous work (Bustard et al. 2018) and present simulations of recent (within the past Gyr), magnetized, cosmic ray driven outflows from the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC),
Low Surface Brightness Imaging of the Magellanic System: Imprints of Tidal Interactions between the Clouds in the Stellar Periphery
We present deep optical images of the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds (LMC and SMC) using a low cost telephoto lens with a wide field of view to explore stellar substructure in the outskirts of the
A Magellanic origin of the DES dwarfs
We establish the connection between the Magellanic Clouds (MCs) and the dwarf galaxy candidates discovered in the Dark Energy Survey (DES) by building a dynamical model of the MC satellite
The frequency of dwarf galaxy multiples at low redshift in SDSS versus cosmological expectations
We quantify the frequency of companions of low-redshift (0.013 55 arcsec, projected separations r_p 1:4) steadily increases with decreasing Primary stellar mass, whereas the cosmological “Major
The influence of Sagittarius and the Large Magellanic Cloud on the stellar disc of the Milky Way Galaxy
We present N-body simulations of a Sagittarius-like dwarf spheroidal galaxy (Sgr) that follow its orbit about the Milky Way (MW) since its first crossing of the Galaxy's virial radius to the present
