Luminous objects associated with the 7.06\arcsec\ separation double quasar Q2345+007 have, until now, escaped detection. In this letter we present the results of the deepest known imaging of the region surrounding the quasar. The total exposure times were 47600 seconds in B$_j$ (101 frames) and 32160 seconds in R (82 frames). The frames came from CFHT, CTIO, and KPNO. We detect a B$_j$ = 25.0 mag galaxy (B$_j$ -- R = 0.5 mag) in close proximity to the fainter QSO image, possibly at $z = 1.49… Expand
Chandra Observations of the QSO Pair Q2345+007: Binary or Massive Dark Lens?
The components of the wide (73) separation quasar pair Q2345+007A,B (z = 2.15) have the most strikingly similar optical spectra seen to date (Steidel & Sargent) yet no detected lensing mass, makingExpand
Weak Lensing Analysis of Cl 1358+62 Using Hubble Space Telescope Observations*
We report on the detection of weak gravitational lensing of faint, distant background objects by Cl 1358+62, a rich cluster of galaxies at a redshift of z = 0.33. The observations consist of a large,Expand
Hubble Space Telescope weak-lensing study of the z=0.83 cluster MS 1054-03
We have measured the weak gravitational lensing of faint, distant background galaxies by MS 1054-03, a rich and X-ray luminous cluster of galaxies at a redshift of z = 0.83, using a two-color mosaicExpand
Binary Quasars in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: Evidence for Excess Clustering on Small Scales
We present a sample of 221 new quasar pairs with proper transverse separations Rprop < 1 h-1 Mpc over the redshift range 0.5 < z < 3.0, discovered from an extensive follow-up campaign to findExpand
A comparison of weak-lensing masses and X-ray properties of galaxy clusters
We present measurements of the masses of 20 X-ray luminous clusters of galaxies at intermediate redshifts, determined from a weak-lensing analysis of deep archival R-band data obtained using theExpand
Cluster Cores, Gravitational Lensing, and Cosmology
Many multiply imaged quasars have been found over the years, but none so far with image separation in excess of 8''. The absence of such large splittings has been used as a test of cosmologicalExpand
Probing Ly$\alpha$ absorbers with double lines of sight
Study of Lyα absorption lines in the spectra of double line-of-sight (DLOS) quasars holds the promise of diagnosing the nature of the structures that give rise to Lyα absorption. Based on simulationsExpand
A metal enriched dark cluster of galaxies at z=1; Dark lens searches
Looking for and studying very distant galaxy clusters, clusters at z>1, are one of the prime subjects of the modern observational cosmology. If the metallicity of the hot intra-cluster medium in veryExpand
Curvature of the Universe and Observed Gravitational Lens Image Separations versus Redshift
In a flat, k = 0, cosmology with galaxies that approximate singular isothermal spheres, gravitational lens image separations should be uncorrelated with source redshift. But in an open, k = -1,Expand
Detection of Weak Lensing by a Cluster of Galaxies at z = 0.83
We report the detection of weak gravitational lensing of faint, distant background galaxies by the rich, X-ray luminous cluster of galaxies MS 1054-03 at z = 0.83. This is the first measurement ofExpand

Density Estimation for Statistics and Data Analysis.
TLDR
The two main aims of the book are to explain how to estimate a density from a given data set and to explore how density estimates can be used, both in their own right and as an ingredient of other statistical procedures. Expand
