• The M-Sigma And M-L Relations In Galactic Bulges, And Determinations Of Their Intrinsic Scatter 

    Gultekin, Kayhan; Richstone, Douglas O.; Gebhardt, Karl; Lauer, Tod R.; Tremaine, Scott; Aller, Monique C.; Bender, Ralf; Dressler, Alan; Faber, S. M.; Filippenko, Alexei V.; Green, Richard; Ho, Luis C.; Kormendy, John; Magorrian, John; Pinkney, Jason; Siopis, Christos
    We derive improved versions of the relations between supermassive black hole mass (MBH) and host-galaxy bulge velocity dispersion (sigma) and luminosity (L; the M-sigma and M-L relations), based on 49 M-BH measurements and ...

    We study Milky Way kinematics using a sample of 18.8 million main-sequence stars with r < 20 and proper-motion measurements derived from Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and POSS astrometry, including similar to 170,000 ...
  • The Multiwavelength Survey By Yale-Chile (MUSYC) Wide K-Band Imaging, Photometric Catalogs, Clustering, And Physical Properties Of Galaxies At Z Similar To 2 

    Blanc, Guillermo A.; Lira, Paulina; Barrientos, L. Felipe; Aguirre, Paula; Francke, Harod; Taylor, Edward N.; Quadri, Ryan; Marchesini, Danilo; Infante, Leopoldo; Gawiser, Eric; Hall, Patrick B.; Willis, Jon P.; Herrera, David; Maza, Jose
    We present K-band imaging of two similar to 30' x 30' fields covered by the Multiwavelength Survey by Yale-Chile (MUSYC) Wide NIR Survey. The SDSS 1030+05 and Cast 1255 fields were imaged with the Infrared Side Port Imager ...

  • Turbulence-Induced Relative Velocity Of Dust Particles. III. The Probability Distribution 

    Pan, Lubin B.; Padoan, Paolo; Scalo, John
    Motivated by its important role in the collisional growth of dust particles in protoplanetary disks, we investigate the probability distribution function (PDF) of the relative velocity of inertial particles suspended in ...
