Numerical simulations of stochastic inflation using importance sampling

jacks0nj/pyfpt 22 Jun 2022

We show how importance sampling can be used to reconstruct the statistics of rare cosmological fluctuations in stochastic inflation.

Primordial non-Gaussianity and non-Gaussian Covariance

tsfloss/pyng 21 Jun 2022

We then consider these effects on the hydrogen bispectrum as observed from a PUMA-like 21-cm intensity mapping survey at redshifts $2<z<6$ and show that not including off-diagonal covariance over-predicts the constraining power on $f_{\rm NL}$ by up to a factor of $5$.

Exoplanet atmosphere retrievals in 3D using phase curve data with ARCiS: application to WASP-43b

michielmin/diffusebeta 20 Jun 2022

For the free chemistry retrievals, we retrieve abundances of H2O, CH4, CO, CO2, AlO, and NH3 as a function of phase, with many more species considered for the equilibrium chemistry retrievals.

The BlueTides Mock Image Catalogue: Simulated observations of high-redshift galaxies and predictions for JWST imaging surveys

madelinemarshall/bluetidesmockimagecatalogue 17 Jun 2022

We predict that the COSMOS-Web survey will detect ~1000 MUV<-20. 1 mag galaxies at 6. 5<z<7. 5, by virtue of its large survey area.

Rotational Variation Allows for Narrow Age Spread in the Extended Main Sequence Turnoff of Massive Cluster NGC 1846

mlipatov/calc_cluster 16 Jun 2022

In this paper, we compute continuous probability densities in three-dimensional color, magnitude, and vsini space for individual stars in a cluster's eMSTO, based on a rotating stellar evolution model.

CMB lensing from Planck PR4 maps

carronj/planck_pr4_lensing 15 Jun 2022

We reconstruct the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) lensing potential on the latest Planck CMB PR4 (NPIPE) maps, which include slightly more data than the 2018 PR3 release, and implement quadratic estimators using more optimal filtering.
