Strong gravitational lenses from the Vera C. Rubin Observatory

ajshajib/dark_energy_forecast_rubin_strong_lensing 13 Jun 2024

Like many areas of astrophysics and cosmology, the Vera C. Rubin Observatory will be transformational for almost all the applications of strong lensing, thanks to the dramatic increase in the number of known strong lenses by two orders of magnitude or more and the readily available time-domain data for the lenses with transient sources.

On the age distribution of Classical Cepheids in the Galaxy

fjaellet/cepheids_age_distribution 10 Jun 2024

We show that the observed age vs. Galactocentric radius distribution in the Milky Way is a direct consequence of the disc's negative radial metallicity gradient (and, depending on the set of stellar models used, a metallicity dependence of the instability strip).

Multi-Generational Black Hole Population Analysis with an Astrophysically Informed Mass Function

multipass-black-holes/multipass 10 Jun 2024

We analyze the population statistics of black holes in the LIGO/Virgo/KAGRA GWTC-3 catalog using a parametric mass function derived from simulations of massive stars experiencing pulsational pair-instability supernovae (PPISN).

The Dark Energy Survey Supernova Program: Light curves and 5-Year data release

des-science/des-sn5yr 7 Jun 2024

We present $griz$ photometric light curves for the full 5 years of the Dark Energy Survey Supernova program (DES-SN), obtained with both forced Point Spread Function (PSF) photometry on Difference Images (DIFFIMG) performed during survey operations, and Scene Modelling Photometry (SMP) on search images processed after the survey.

How much do we know the halo mass function? Predictions beyond resolution

weiguangcui/hmkhmf 6 Jun 2024

As a common gravitation virialized object in the standard $\Lambda$CDM cosmology, dark matter halo connects from the large-scale structure all the way down to galaxy and star formation.

Modeling Time-Variable Elemental Abundances in Coronal Loop Simulations

jwreep/ebtel_abundances 6 Jun 2024

This suggests heating rates in quiescent AR loops no larger than $\approx 0. 1$ erg s$^{-1}$ cm$^{-3}$ to be consistent with recent measurements of abundance factors $f \gtrsim 2$.
