Aims. The eROSITA Final Equatorial-Depth Survey has been carried out during the performance verification phase of the SpectrumRoentgen-Gamma/eROSITA telescope and was completed in November 2019. This survey is designed to provide the first eROSITAselected sample of clusters and groups and to test the predictions for the all-sky survey in the context of cosmological studies with clusters of galaxies. Methods. In the area of ∼140 square degrees covered by eFEDS, 542 candidate clusters and groups… 

Testing Galaxy Feedback Models with Resolved X-Ray Profiles of the Hot Circumgalactic Medium

The hot (>106 K) phase of the circumgalactic medium (CGM) contains a large fraction of baryons in galaxies. It also retains signatures of the processes that shaped the galaxies, such as feedback from

Discovery of a Cool, Metal-rich Gas Reservoir in the Outskirts of z ≈ 0.5 Clusters

We built the first-ever statistically significant sample of ≈80,000 background quasar–foreground cluster pairs to study the cool, metal-rich gas in the outskirts (>R 500) of z ≈ 0.5 clusters with a

Combining Planck and SPT Cluster Catalogs: Cosmological Analysis and Impact on the Planck Scaling Relation Calibration

We provide the first combined cosmological analysis of the South Pole Telescope (SPT) and Planck cluster catalogs. The aim is to provide an independent calibration for Planck scaling relations,

Surveys of the Cosmic X-ray Background

We provide a highly concise overview of what X-ray surveys and their multiwavelength follow-up have revealed about the nature of the cosmic X-ray background (CXRB) and its constituent sources. We

SRG/eROSITA status and operations during the first four all-sky surveys

eROSITA (extended ROentgen Survey with an Imaging Telescope Array) is the soft X-ray scientific payload on board the SRG (Spektrum-Roentgen-Gamma) mission. It was successfully launched from Baikonur



Gaussian Processes for Machine Learning

The treatment is comprehensive and self-contained, targeted at researchers and students in machine learning and applied statistics, and deals with the supervised learning problem for both regression and classification.
