A new class of pulsating binary stars was recently discovered, whose pulsation amplitudes are strongly modulated with orbital phase. Stars in close binaries are tidally distorted, so we examine how a star’s tidally induced asphericity affects its oscillation mode frequencies and eigenfunctions. We explain the pulsation amplitude modulation via tidal mode coupling such that the pulsations are effectively

Cosmic variance is the intrinsic scatter in the number density of galaxies due to fluctuations in the large-scale dark matter density field. In this work, we present a simple analytic model of cosmic variance in the high redshift Universe (z ∼ 5–15). We assume that galaxies grow according to the evolution of the halo mass function, which we allow to vary with large-scale environment. Our model produces

We present an end-to-end methodology to measure the effects of weak lensing on individual galaxy-galaxy systems exploiting their kinematic information. Using this methodology, we have measured a shear signal from the velocity fields of 18 weakly-lensed galaxies. We selected a sample of systems based only on the properties of the sources, requiring them to be bright (apparent i-band magnitude <17.4)

With the observations of an unprecedented number of oscillating subgiant stars expected from NASA’s TESS mission, the asteroseismic characterization of subgiant stars will be a vital task for stellar population studies and for testing our theories of stellar evolution. To determine the fundamental properties of a large sample of subgiant stars efficiently, we developed a deep learning method that estimates

The Epoch of Reionization (EoR) depends on the complex astrophysics governing the birth and evolution of the first galaxies and structures in the intergalactic medium. EoR models rely on cosmic microwave background (CMB) observations, and in particular the large-scale E-mode polarization power spectra (EE PS), to help constrain their highly uncertain parameters. However, rather than directly forward-modelling

We present the discovery of two new hot Jupiters identified from the WASP survey, WASP-186b and WASP-187b (TOI-1494.01 and TOI-1493.01). Their planetary nature was established from SOPHIE spectroscopic observations, and additional photometry was obtained from TESS. Stellar parameters for the host stars are derived from spectral line, IRFM, and isochrone placement analyses. These parameters are combined

In this work we describe 59 galaxies discovered in the talk-forum of the Milky Way Project (MWP) by volunteers of the project. The MWP is based on infrared images by the Spitzer Space Telescope and primarily probes the Zone of Avoidance for star-forming regions located in the Milky Way. The list of galaxies found here include 35 galaxies previously not described, a possible galaxy cluster and two galaxies

Inspection of archival IUE spectra of the bright rapidly oscillating Ap star α Cir A reveal large flux variations from 1600 to 2000 Å over the 4.4790 day rotational period. At 1965 Å, where the flux reaches a maximum, the flux more than doubles between phases of maximum and minimum flux. These large flux variations are most likely caused by the passage of spots or belts of overabundant elements in

High-cadence Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) observations are promising for studies of short-term pulsational variability in magnetic O stars, which usually have long rotation periods of the order of months or years. The Of?p star NGC 1624-2 is of special interest as it possesses the strongest magnetic field measured among O stars, together with a giant magnetosphere. We detect three significant

SNe Ia are likely the thermonuclear explosions of carbon–oxygen white-dwarf stars, but their progenitor systems remain elusive. A few theoretical scenarios for the progenitor systems have been suggested, which have been shown to agree with some observational properties of SNe Ia. However, several computational challenges prohibit a robust comparison to the observations. We focus on the observed ##IMG##

There continues to be good reason to believe that dark matter particles, which only “feel” the gravitational force, influence the local and distant Universe, despite drawing a complete blank in the search for such a particle. The expansion rate of the Universe is defined by the Hubble constant h . Measurements of the Hubble constant at different wavelengths produce different results, differing well

Type Ia Supernovae (SNe Ia) are widely used as standard candles to probe the Universe. However, how these fierce explosions are produced itself is still a highly debated issue. There are mainly two popular models for SNe Ia: the double-degenerate scenario and the single-degenerate scenario. The double-degenerate scenario suggests that SNe Ia are produced by the coalescence of two degenerate white dwarfs
