Self-gravity calculations for 3D are expensive in terms of computational time. Several methods exist for this computation, for example multigrid and spectral methods. Unfortunately, these approaches require the imposition of boundary conditions, which can be either numerically expensive (direct Newtonian sums), artificial (periodicity assumptions), or potentially imprecise (multipolar expansions).

This fast, automatic, and reliable software was developed for the Pan-STARRS

The Pan-STARRS1 (PS1) Science Consortium has carried out a set of imaging surveys using the 1.4 gigapixel GPC1 camera on the PS1 telescope. As this camera is composed of many individual electronic readouts and covers a very large field of view, great care was taken to ensure that the many instrumental effects were corrected to produce the most uniform detector response possible. We present the image-detrending

We present a new, ambitious survey performed with the Chandra X-ray Observatory of the 9.3 deg 2 Boötes field of the NOAO Deep Wide-Field Survey. The wide field probes a statistically representative volume of the universe at high redshift.

The Deep Space Network (DSN) enables NASA to communicate with its spacecraft in deep space. By virtue of its large antennas, the DSN can also be used as a powerful instrument for radio astronomy. Specifically, the Deep Space Station (DSS)-43, the 70 m antenna at the Canberra Deep Space Communications Complex (CDSCC), has a K -band radio astronomy system covering a 10 GHz bandwidth at 17–27 GHz.

This paper describes the database of optical spectra of BL Lacertae (BLL) objects (Z BLL objects) available at https://web.oapd.inaf.it/zbllac/ [https://web.oapd.inaf.it/zbllac/] . At present, it contains calibrated spectra for 295 BLL. For about 35% of them, we report a firm measure of redshift z , while for 35 sources we set a lower limit on z based on the detection of intervening absorption systems

The XMM-RM project was designed to provide X-ray coverage of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey Reverberation Mapping (SDSS-RM) field. Forty-one XMM-Newton exposures, placed surrounding the Chandra AEGIS field, were taken, covering an area of 6.13 deg 2 and reaching a nominal exposure depth of ∼15 ks. We present an X-ray catalog of 3553 sources detected in these data, using a PSF-fitting algorithm and a

Compressive plasma turbulence is investigated at sub-ion scales in the solar wind using both the Fast Plasma Investigation (FPI) instrument on the Magnetospheric MultiScale mission (MMS), as well as using calibrated spacecraft potential data from the Spin Plane Double Probe (SDP) instrument.

PHOEBE 2 is a Python package for modeling the observables of eclipsing star systems, but until now it has focused entirely on the forward model—that is, generating a synthetic model given fixed values of a large number of parameters describing the system and the observations. The inverse problem, obtaining orbital and stellar parameters given observational data, is more complicated and computationally

We present an evolutionary population synthesis model of the surface brightness fluctuation (SBF) for normal and He-enriched simple stellar populations (SSPs). While our SBF model for the normal He population agrees with other existing models, the He-rich population, containing hotter horizontal branch stars and brighter red clump stars than the normal He population, entails a substantial change in

Earth-sized planets in the habitable zones of M dwarfs are good candidates for the study of habitability and detection of biosignatures. To search for these planets, we analyze all available radial velocity data and apply four signal detection criteria to select the optimal candidates. We find 10 strong candidates satisfying these criteria and three weak candidates showing inconsistency over time due

The cosmic neutrino background is an important component of the universe that is difficult to include in cosmological simulations due to the extremely large velocity dispersion of neutrino particles. We develop a new approach to simulate cosmic neutrinos that decomposes the Fermi–Dirac phase space into shells of constant speed and then evolves those shells using hydrodynamic equations. These collisionless

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) obtains spatial resolutions of 15 to 5 mas at 275–950 GHz (0.87–0.32 mm) with 16 km baselines. Calibration at higher frequencies is challenging as ALMA sensitivity and quasar density decrease. The band-to-band (B2B) technique observes a detectable quasar at a lower frequency that is closer to the target, compared to one at the target high frequency
