Modelling the rotation period distribution of M dwarfs in the Kepler field
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
McQuillan et al. (Mon. Not. R. Astron. Soc.432:1203, 2013) presented 1570 periods P of M dwarf stars in the field of view of the Kepler telescope. It is expected that most of these reflect rotation periods, due to starspots. ...
The Galactic halo pulsar population
(Oxford University Press, 2018)
Most population studies of pulsars have hitherto focused on the disc of the Galaxy, the Galactic centre, globular clusters, and nearby galaxies. It is expected that pulsars, by virtue of their natal kicks, are also to ...
Calibrating the James Webb Space telescope filters as star formation rate indicators
(American Astronomical Society, 2018)
We have calibrated the 6.5m James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) mid-infrared (MIR) filters as star formation rate (SFR) indicators, using JWST photometry synthesized from Spitzer spectra of 49 low-redshift galaxies, which ...
