eROSITA is the primary instrument on the Russian SRG mission. In the first four years of scientific operation after its launch, foreseen for 2014, it will perform a deep survey of the entire X-ray sky. In the soft X-ray band (0.5-2 keV), this will be about 20 times more sensitive than the ROSAT all sky survey, while in the hard band (2-10 keV) it will provide the first ever true imaging survey of the sky at those energies. Such a sensitive all-sky survey will revolutionize our view of the high…

Full-sky photon simulation of clusters and active galactic nuclei in the soft X-rays for eROSITA
The eROSITA X-ray telescope on board the Spectrum-Roentgen-Gamma (SRG) mission will measure the position and properties of about 100,000 clusters of galaxies and 3 million active galactic nuclei over
SRG/eROSITA prospects for the detection of stellar tidal disruption flares
We discuss the potential of the eROSITA telescope on board the Spectrum-RoentgenGamma (SRG) observatory to detect stellar tidal disruption events (TDE ) during its 4-year all-sky survey. These events
SDSS-V: Pioneering Panoptic Spectroscopy
SDSS-V will be an all-sky, multi-epoch spectroscopic survey of over six million objects. It is designed to decode the history of the Milky Way, trace the emergence of the chemical elements, reveal

(Abridged) The Maunakea Spectroscopic Explorer (MSE) is an end-to-end science platform for the design, execution and scientific exploitation of spectroscopic surveys. It will unveil the composition
Constraining the X-ray AGN halo occupation distribution: implications for eROSITA
The X-ray emission from active galactic nucleus (AGN) is a major component of extragalactic X-ray sky. In this paper, we use the X-ray luminosity function (XLF) and halo occupation distribution (HOD)
Exploiting the IRT-THESEUS Capability to Observe Lensed Quasars
THESEUS is an ESA space based project, which aims to explore the early universe by unveiling a complete census of Gamma-ray Burst (GRB) population in the first billion years. This goal is expected to
