We present mock catalogs created to support the interpretation of the CANDELS survey. We extract halos along past lightcones from the Bolshoi Planck dissipationless N-body simulations and populate these halos with galaxies using two different independently developed semi-analytic models of galaxy formation and the empirical model UniverseMachine. Our mock catalogs have geometries that encompass the footprints of observations associated with the five CANDELS fields. In order to allow field-to… 


Galactic Dynamics
Two of the world’s leading astrophysicists, James Binney and Scott Tremaine, here present a comprehensive review of the theory of galactic dynamics at a level suitable for both graduate students and
EAZY: A Fast, Public Photometric Redshift Code
A redshift quality parameter, -->Qz, is introduced, which provides a robust estimate of the reliability of the photometric redshift estimate, and is provided for the FIRES, MUSYC, and FIREWORKS surveys.
