Where's Swimmy?: Mining unique color features buried in galaxies by deep anomaly detection using Subaru Hyper Suprime-Cam data

no code yet • 11 Oct 2021

We present the Swimmy (Subaru WIde-field Machine-learning anoMalY) survey program, a deep-learning-based search for unique sources using multicolored ($grizy$) imaging data from the Hyper Suprime-Cam Subaru Strategic Program (HSC-SSP).

A Unified Model for the Fan Region and the North Polar Spur: A bundle of filaments in the Local Galaxy

no code yet • 29 Sep 2021

We present a simple, unified model that can explain two of the brightest, large-scale, diffuse, polarized radio features in the sky, the North Polar Spur (NPS) and the Fan Region, along with several other prominent loops.

EuCAPT White Paper: Opportunities and Challenges for Theoretical Astroparticle Physics in the Next Decade

no code yet • 19 Oct 2021

Astroparticle physics is undergoing a profound transformation, due to a series of extraordinary new results, such as the discovery of high-energy cosmic neutrinos with IceCube, the direct detection of gravitational waves with LIGO and Virgo, and many others.

Metrics of research impact in astronomy: Predicting later impact from metrics measured 10-15 years after the PhD

no code yet • 27 Oct 2021

This paper calibrates how metrics derivable from the SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System can be used to estimate the future impact of astronomy research careers and thereby to inform decisions on resource allocation such as job hires and tenure decisions.

The Synchrony of Production & Escape: Half the Bright Ly$α$ Emitters at $z\approx2$ have Lyman Continuum Escape Fractions $\approx50\%$

no code yet • 22 Oct 2021

We select leakers ($f_{\rm{esc}}>20$%) and non-leakers ($f_{\rm{esc}}<5$%) from a representative sample of $>0. 2 L^{*}$ LyA emitters (LAEs).

(Re)Solving Reionization with Lyα: How Bright Lyα Emitters account for the $z\approx2-8$ Cosmic Ionizing Background

no code yet • 22 Oct 2021

Here we introduce an emissivity framework based on Ly$\alpha$ emitters (LAEs), which naturally hones in on the subset of galaxies responsible for the ionizing background due to the intimate connection between the production and escape of Ly$\alpha$ and LyC photons.

Mapping the pressure-dependent day-night temperature contrast of a strongly irradiated atmosphere with HST spectroscopic phase curve

no code yet • 19 Oct 2021

We discuss the difference in the spectral features of SDSS1411-B and hot Jupiter WASP-43b, and the lower-than-predicted day-night temperature contrast of J4111-BD.
