Warm-hot gas in X-ray bright galaxy clusters and the H I-deficient circumgalactic medium in dense environments
We analyze the intracluster medium (ICM) and circumgalactic medium (CGM) in 7 X-ray detected galaxy clusters using spectra of background QSOs (HST-COS/STIS), optical spectroscopy of the clusterExpand
Statistical Detection of the HeII Transverse Proximity Effect: Evidence for Sustained Quasar Activity for $>$25 Million Years
The HeII transverse proximity effect -- enhanced HeII Ly$\alpha$~transmission in a background sightline caused by the ionizing radiation of a foreground quasar -- offers a unique opportunity to probeExpand
76 T dwarfs from the UKIDSS LAS : benchmarks, kinematics and an updated space density
We report the discovery of 76 new T dwarfs from the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS) Large Area Survey (LAS). Near-infrared broad- and narrow-band photometry and spectroscopy are presented forExpand
Optical Discovery of Probable Stellar Tidal Disruption Flares
Using archival Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) multi-epoch imaging data (Stripe 82), we have searched for the tidal disruption of stars by supermassive black holes in non-active galaxies. TwoExpand
Isophotal Shapes of Elliptical/S0 Galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey
We revisit the shapes of isophotes for elliptical (E) and lenticular (S0) galaxies by studying 847 nearby early-type galaxies selected from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Data Release 4 with velocityExpand
A Search for Nitrogen-Enriched Quasars in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Early Data Release
A search for nitrogen-rich quasars in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Early Data Release (SDSS EDR) catalog has yielded 16 candidates, including five with very prominent emission, but no cases withExpand
The subdwarf luminosity function
Using data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Early Data Release and SuperCOSMOS Sky Survey scans of POSS-I plates we identify a sample of �2600 subdwarfs using reduced proper motion methods andExpand
Correlation between galaxies and QSO in the SDSS:na signal from gravitational lensing magnification?
We report a detection of galaxy-QSO cross-correlation w_GQ in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) Early Data Release (EDR) over 0.2-30 arc-minute scales. We cross-correlate galaxy samples ofExpand
Fundamental differences in the radio properties of red and blue quasars: evolution strongly favoured over orientation
A minority of the optically selected quasar population are red at optical wavelengths due to the presence of dust along the line-of-sight. A key focus of many red quasar studies is to understandExpand
Clustering von großen hochdimensionalen und unsicheren Datensätzen in der Astronomie
Ein standiges Wachstum der Datenmengen ist in vielen IT-affinen Bereichen gegeben. Wissenschaftliche und insbesondere astronomische Datensatze weisen komplexe Eigenschaften wie Unsicherheiten, eineExpand
