  • Anomalous gas in ESO 149-G003: A MeerKAT-16 view 

    Jozsa, G.I.G; Thorat, K; Serylak, M (Oxford University Press, 2021)
    ESO 149-G003 is a close-by, isolated dwarf irregular galaxy. Previous observations with the ATCA indicated the presence of anomalous neutral hydrogen (H I) deviating from the kinematics of a regularly rotating disc. We ...
  • Anti-lensing: the bright side of voids 

    Bolejko, Krzysztof; Clarkson, Chris; Maartens, Roy; Bacon, David; Meures, Nikolai; Beynon, Emma (American Physical Society, 2013)
    More than half of the volume of our Universe is occupied by cosmic voids. The lensing magni ca- tion e ect from those under-dense regions is generally thought to give a small dimming contribution: objects on the far side ...
  • Assessing non-linear models for galaxy clustering – II. Model validation and forecasts for Stage IV surveys 

    Pourtsidou, Alkistis; Bose, Benjamin; Markovic, Katarina (Oxford University Press, 2020)
    Accurate modelling of non-linear scales in galaxy clustering will be crucial for data analysis of Stage IV galaxy surveys. A selection of competing non-linear models must be made based on validation studies. We provide a ...
  • Augmenting machine learning photometric redshifts with Gaussian mixture models 

    Jarvis, M; Hatfield, P; Almosallam, I (Oxford University Press, 2020-09-11)
    Wide-area imaging surveys are one of the key ways of advancing our understanding of cosmology, galaxy formation physics, and the large-scale structure of the Universe in the coming years. These surveys typically require ...
  • The baryonic Tully–Fisher relation in the SIMBA simulation

  • Black hole - galaxy correlations without self-regulation 

    Angles-Alcazar, Daniel; Ozel, Feryal; Dave, Romeel (American Astronomical Society, 2013)
    Recent models of black hole growth in a cosmological context have forwarded a paradigm in which the growth is self-regulated by feedback from the black hole itself. Here we use cosmological zoom simulations of galaxy formation ...
