This paper presents a detailed kinematic and chemical analysis of 16 members of the Kapteyn moving group. The group does not appear to be chemically homogenous. However, the kinematics and the chemical abundance patterns seen in 14 of the stars in this group are similar to those observed in the well-studied cluster, ω Centauri (ω Cen). Some members of this moving group may be remnants of the tidal debris of ω Cen, left in the Galactic disk during the merger event that deposited ω Cen into the… 
The Aquarius comoving group is not a disrupted classical globular cluster
We present a detailed analysis of high-resolution, high S/N spectra for 5 Aquarius stream stars observed with the MIKE spectrograph on the Magellan Clay telescope. Our sample represents one third of
Discovery of new retrograde substructures: the shards of ω Centauri?
We use the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS)– Gaia catalogue to search for substructure in the stellar halo. The sample comprises 62 133 halo stars with full phase space coordinates and extends out to
Through thick and thin: kinematic and chemical components in the solar neighbourhood
We search for chemically distinct stellar components in the solar neighbourhood using a compilation of published data. Extending earlier work, we show that when the abundances of Fe, α elements and
Searching for tidal tails around ω Centauri using RR Lyrae stars
We present a survey for RR Lyrae stars in an area of 50 deg$^2$ around the globular cluster $\omega$ Centauri, aimed to detect debris material from the alleged progenitor galaxy of the cluster. We
M54 + SAGITTARIUS = ω CENTAURI
We derive homogeneous abundances of Fe, O, Na, and α-elements from high-resolution FLAMES spectra for 76 red giant stars in NGC 6715 (M54) and for 25 red giants in the surrounding nucleus of the
Asymmetric metallicity patterns in the stellar velocity space with RAVE
Context. The chemical abundances of stars encode information on their place and time of origin. Stars formed together in e.g. a cluster, should present chemical homogeneity. Also disk stars
Formation of multiple populations in globular clusters: another possible scenario
Aims. While chemical composition spreads are now believed to be a universal characteristic of globular clusters (GCs), not al l of them present multiple populations in their color-magnitude diagrams
A New Formation Model for ω Centauri: A Complex Interplay of Astrophysical Processes
We investigate the formation processes of the Galactic globular cluster (GC) ω Cen with multiple stellar populations based on our original hydrodynamical simulations with chemical enrichment by Type
Radial velocities of K–M dwarfs and local stellar kinematics
Aims. The goal of this paper is to present complete radial-velocity data for the spectroscopically selected McCormick sample of nearby K–M dwarfs and, based on these and supplementary data, to
