We use a large N -body simulation to study the relation of the structural properties of dark matter halos to their assembly history and environment. The complexity of individual halo assembly histories can be well described by a small number of principal components (PCs), which, compared to formation times, provide a more complete description of halo assembly histories and have a stronger correlation

Keck near-infrared observations reveal a hidden broad-line region, allowing for the rare case where strong constraints can be placed on both the BH mass and bulge component.

Star formation in the universe’s most massive galaxies proceeds furiously early in time but then nearly ceases. Plenty of hot gas remains available but does not cool and condense into star-forming clouds. Active galactic nuclei (AGNs) release enough energy to inhibit cooling of the hot gas, but energetic arguments alone do not explain why quenching of star formation is most effective in high-mass galaxies

For the kinematical procedure, the astrometric data from the Gaia DR2 were used.

Starrett Thanks to their continuous cooling and relative simplicity, white dwarf stars are routinely used to measure the ages of stellar populations. The usefulness of white dwarfs as cosmochronometers depends on the availability of accurate cooling models. A key ingredient of those models is conductive opacities, which largely govern the cooling rate. In this work, we present improved conductive opacities 更新日期：2020-08-11 • Astrophys. J.

In active galactic nuclei (AGNs), binaries form and evolve efficiently by dynamical interactions and gaseous dissipation.
