Over the last few years, rapid progress has been made in distance measurements for nearby galaxies based on the magnitude of the tip of red giant branch stars. Current CCD surveys with HST and large ground- based telescopes bring ∼ 10%-accurate distances for roughly a hundred galaxies within 5 Mpc. The new data on distances to galaxies situated in (and around) the nearest groups: the Local Group, M81 group, CenA/M83 group, IC342/Maffei group, Sculptor filament, and Canes Venatici cloud allowed us… 

Local Group Analogues

The abundance of satellite galaxies is a critical small-scale test of the standard cosmological model. From comparing the predictions of structure formation in simulations with observations of Local

The Extragalactic Distance Database: The Color–Magnitude Diagrams/Tip of the Red Giant Branch Distance Catalog

The Extragalactic Distance Database (EDD) was created as a repository for high-quality, redshift-independent distances. A key component of EDD is the Color–Magnitude Diagrams/Tip of the Red Giant

The Effects of Dark Energy on Gravitation

Dark energy is thought to be very homogenous, not very dense and it is not known to interact through any of the fundamental forces other than gravity. In this research work, we use analytical method

Detection of multiple stellar populations in extragalactic massive clusters with JWST

The discovery of multiple stellar populations (multiple in the sense of inhomogeneous chemical abundances, with specific patterns of variations of a few light elements) in Galactic globular clusters

A method to constrain the characteristic angular size of the brightest cosmic-ray sources observed above 57 × 10 18 eV

We introduce a method to constrain the charac- teristic angular size of the brightest cosmic-ray sources ob- served above 57◊ 10 18 eV. By angular size of a source, we mean the effective angular

A repeating fast radio burst source in a globular cluster.

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are flashes of unknown physical origin1. The majority of FRBs have been seen only once, although some are known to generate multiple flashes2,3. Many models invoke

Tracing the local volume galaxy halo‐to‐stellar mass ratio with satellite kinematics

Funding Information Russian Scientific Foundation, 19– 02–00145. Rapid advance has been made recently in accurate distance measurements for nearby (D < 11 Mpc) galaxies based on the magnitude of the

On the Influence of Angular Momentum and Dynamical Friction on Structure Formation. II. Turn-Around and Structure Mass

In this paper, we use the solution of the collapse model presented in a previous paper by Del Popolo to obtain more precise estimates on the turn-around radius (TAR) (namely the radius at which the

On the Influence of Angular Momentum and Dynamical Friction on Structure Formation

In this paper we extended the spherical collapse model to take account of angular momentum and dynamical friction and studied how the accreted mass, the threshold of collapse, the virial overdensity,
