Context. The HR 1614 is an overdensity in velocity space and has for a long time been known as an old (∼2 Gyr) and metal-rich ([Fe/H] ≈ +0.2) nearby moving group that has a dissolving open cluster origin. The existence of such old and metal-rich groups in the solar vicinity is quite unexpected since the vast majority of nearby moving groups are known to be young. Aims. In the light of new and significantly larger data sets than ever before (astrometric, photometric, and spectroscopic), we aim… 
Trimodal structure of Hercules stream explained by originating from bar resonances
Gaia Data Release 2 revealed detailed structures of nearby stars in phase space. These include the Hercules stream, whose origin is still debated. Most of the previous numerical studies conjectured
Diagonal Ridge Pattern of Different Age Populations Found in Gaia-DR2 with LAMOST Main-sequence Turnoff and OB-type Stars
We revisit the diagonal ridge feature (diagonal distributions in the R, vϕ plane) found in Gaia and present a timing analysis for it between Galactocentric distances of R = 7.5 and 12 kpc, using
Tracing the Origin of Moving Groups. III. Detecting Moving Groups in LAMOST DR7
We revisit the moving groups (MGs) in the solar neighborhood with a sample of 91,969 nearby stars constructed from LAMOST DR7. Using the wavelet technique and Monte Carlo simulations, five MGs
Tree-ring structure of Galactic bar resonance
Galaxy models have long predicted that galactic bars slow down by losing angular momentum to their postulated dark haloes. When the bar slows down, resonance sweeps radially outwards through the
Dynamically produced moving groups in interacting simulations
We show that Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) simulations of dwarf galaxies interacting with a Milky Way-like disk produce moving groups in the simulated stellar disk. We compare the observed


We present abundances for a sample of F, G, and K dwarfs of the HR 1614 moving group based on high-resolution, high signal-to-noise ratio spectra from the Anglo-Australian Telescope UCLES instrument.
Kinematics and Metallicity of Stars in the Solar Region
Several samples of nearby stars with the most accurate astrometric and photometric parameters are searched for clues to their evolutionary history. The main samples are (1) the main-sequence stars
Riding the kinematic waves in the Milky Way disk with Gaia
Context. Gaia DR2 has delivered full-sky six-dimensional measurements for millions of stars, and the quest to understand the dynamics of our Galaxy has entered a new phase. Aims. Our aim is to reveal
Over 100 trigonometric parallaxes and proper motions for masers associated with young, high-mass stars have been measured with the Bar and Spiral Structure Legacy Survey, a Very Long Baseline Array
Is the Milky Way ringing? The hunt for high‐velocity streams
We perform numerical simulations of a stellar galactic disk with initial conditions chosen to represent an unrelaxed population which might have been left following a merger. Stars are unevenly
Revisiting the Tale of Hercules: How Stars Orbiting the Lagrange Points Visit the Sun
We propose a novel explanation for the Hercules stream consistent with recent measurements of the extent and pattern speed of the Galactic bar. We have adapted a made-to-measure dynamical model
Gaia Data Release 2
Context. The second Gaia data release (Gaia DR2) contains high-precision positions, parallaxes, and proper motions for 1.3 billion sources as well as line-of-sight velocities for 7.2 million stars
The structure of the Milky Way's bar outside the bulge
While it is incontrovertible that the inner Galaxy contains a bar, its structure near the Galactic plane has remained uncertain, where extinction from intervening dust is greatest. We investigate
Gaia Data Release 2
Context. Gaia Data Release 2 provides high-precision astrometry and three-band photometry for about 1.3 billion sources over the full sky. The precision, accuracy, and homogeneity of both astrometry
Spatial variations in the Milky Way disc metallicity–age relation
Stellar ages are a crucial component to studying the evolution of the Milky Way. Using Gaia DR2 distance estimates, it is now possible to estimate stellar ages for a larger volume of evolved stars
