  • Cosmology with photometrically classified type IA supernovae from the SDSS-II supernova survey 

    Campbell, Heather; D’Andrea, Chris B.; Nichol, Robert C.; Sako, Masao; Smith, Mathew (The American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    We present the cosmological analysis of 752 photometrically–classified Type Ia Supernovae (SNe Ia) obtained from the full Sloan Digital Sky Survey II (SDSS-II) Supernova (SN) Survey, supplemented with host–galaxy ...
  • Evolution of star formation in the UKIDSS ultra deep survey field - I. Luminosity functions and cosmic star formation rate out of z = 1.6 

    Drake, Alyssa B.; Simpson, Chris; Collins, Chris A.; Jarvis, Matt (OUP, 2013)
    We present new results on the cosmic star formation history in the SXDS-UDS field out to z = 1.6. We compile narrow-band data from the Subaru Telescope and the Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) ...
  • H-Atlas: The cosmic abundance of dust from the far-infrared background power spectrum 

    Thacker, Cameron; Cooray, Asantha; Jarvis, Matt (IOP Science, 2013)
    We present a measurement of the angular power spectrum of the cosmic far-infrared background (CFIRB) anisotropies in one of the extragalactic fields of the Herschel Astrophysical Terahertz Large Area Survey (H-ATLAS) at ...
  • Physical properties of spectroscopically confirmed galaxies at Z ≥ 6. I. Basic characteristics of the rest-frame UV continuum and lyman-alpha emission 

    Jiang, Linhua; Egami, Eiichi; Mechtley, Matthew; Fan, Xiaohui; Cohen, Seth H.; Windhorst, Rogier A.; Dave, Romeel; Finlator, Kristian; Kashikawa, Nobunari; Ouchi, Masami; Shimasaku, Kazuhiro (American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    We present deep HST near-IR and Spitzer mid-IR observations of a large sample of spectroscopically- confirmed galaxies at z ≥ 6. The sample consists of 51 Ly-alpha emitters (LAEs) at z ≃ 5.7, 6.5, and 7.0, and 16 Lyman-break ...
  • Physical properties of spectroscopically-confirmed galaxies at z >= 6. II. Morphology of the rest-frame UV continuum and Lyman-alpha emission 

    Jiang, Linhua; Egami, Eiichi; Fan, Xiaohui; Dave, Romeel (IOP Science, 2013)
    We present a detailed structural and morphological study of a large sample of spectroscopicallyconfirmed galaxies at z ≥ 6, using deep HST near-IR broad-band images and Subaru optical narrowband images. The galaxy sample ...
  • Properties of submillimeter galaxies in the CANDELS GOODS-south field 

    Wilklind, Tommy; Conselice, Christopher J.; Dave, Romeel (American Physical Society, 2014)
    We derive physical properties of 10 submillimeter galaxies located in the CANDELS coverage of the GOODS-S field. The galaxies were first identified as submillimeter sources with the LABOCA bolometer and subsequently targeted ...

    Biscoff, C.; Brizius, A.; Zwart, J.; Buder, I.; Chinone, Y.; Cleary, K.; Dumoulin, R.N.; Kusaka, A.; Monsalve, R.; Naess, S.K.; Newburgh, L.B.; Nixon, G.; Reeves, R.; Smith, K.M.; Vanderlinde, K.; Wehus, I.K.; Bogdan, M.; Bustos, R.; Church, S.E.; Davis, Robert; Dickenson, C.; Eriksen, H.K.; Gaier, T.; Gundersen, J.O.; Hasegawa, M.; Hazumi, M.; Holler, C.; Huffenberger, K.M.; Imbriale, W.A.; Ishidoshiro, K.; Jones, M.E.; Kangaslahti, P.; Kapner, D.J.; Lawrence, C.R.; Leitch, E.M.; Limon, M.; McMahon, J.J.; Miller, A.D.; Nagai, M.; Nguyen, H.; Pearson, T.J.; Piccirillo, L.; Radford, S.J.E.; Readhead, A.C.S.; Richards, J.L.; Samtleben, D.; Seiffert, M.; Shepherd, M.C.; Staggs, S.T.; Tajima, O.; Thompson, K.L.; Williamson, R.; Winstein, B.; Wollack, E.J. (The American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    The Q/U Imaging ExperimenT (QUIET) is designed to measure polarization in the cosmic microwave background, targeting the imprint of inflationary gravitational waves at large angular scales(∼1◦). Between 2008 October and ...
  • SN Ia host galaxy properties from Sloan Digital Sky Survey-II spectroscopy 

    Johansson, Jonas; Thomas, Daniel; Smith, Mathew; Pforr, Janine; Maraston, Claudia; Nichol, Robert C.; Lampeitl, Hubert; Beifiori, Alessandra; Gupta, Ravi R.; Schneider, Donald P. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
    We study the stellar populations of Type Ia supernova (SN Ia) host galaxies using Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS)-II spectroscopy. The main focus is on the relationships of SN Ia properties with stellar velocity dispersion ...
  • Testing gravity using large-scale redshift-space distortions 

    Raccanelli, Alvise; Bertacca, Daniele; Pietrobon, Davide; Schmidt, Fabian; Samushia, Lado; Bartolo, Nicola; Doré, Olivier; Matarrese, Sabino; Percival, Will J. (Oxford University Press, 2013)
    We use luminous red galaxies from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) II to test the cosmological structure growth in two alternatives to the standard cold dark matter ( CDM)+general relativity (GR) cosmological model. ...
