Sample, Spectroscopy, and Characteristics of the z~0.5 MgII-Absorbing Circumgalactic MediumNov 23 2017Spectroscopy of background QSO sightlines passing close to foreground galaxies is a potent technique for studying the circumgalactic medium (CGM). QSOs are effectively point sources, however, limiting their potential to constrain the size of circumgalactic ... More
PRIMUS: One- and Two-Halo Galactic Conformity at $0.2 < z < 1$Aug 17 2016We test for galactic conformity at $0.2<z<1.0$ to a projected distance of 5 Mpc using spectroscopic redshifts from the PRism MUlti-object Survey (PRIMUS). Our sample consists of $\sim60,000$ galaxies in five separate fields covering a total of $\sim5.5$ ... More
The Co-Formation of Spheroids and Quasars Traced in their ClusteringNov 26 2006Jun 18 2007We compare observed clustering of quasars and galaxies as a function of redshift, mass, luminosity, & color/morphology, to constrain models of quasar fueling and spheroid-BH co-evolution. High redshift quasars are shown to be drawn from progenitors of ... More
PRIMUS: One- and Two-Halo Galactic Conformity at $0.2 < z < 1$Aug 17 2016Nov 04 2016We test for galactic conformity at $0.2<z<1.0$ to a projected distance of 5 Mpc using spectroscopic redshifts from the PRism MUlti-object Survey (PRIMUS). Our sample consists of $\sim60,000$ galaxies in five separate fields covering a total of $\sim5.5$ ... More
Ultraviolet Perspectives on Diffuse Gas in the Largest Cosmic StructuresMar 14 2019The past decade has seen an explosion of discoveries and new insights into the diffuse gas within galaxies, galaxy clusters, and the filaments composing the Cosmic Web. A new decade will bring fresh opportunities to further this progress towards developing ... More
Improved Mock Galaxy Catalogs for the DEEP2 Galaxy Redshift Survey from Subhalo Abundance and Environment MatchingJul 10 2012Jun 23 2013We develop empirical methods for modeling the galaxy population and populating cosmological N-body simulations with mock galaxies according to the observed properties of galaxies in survey data. We use these techniques to produce a new set of mock catalogs ... More
Molecular Tracers of the Central 12 pc of the Galactic CenterNov 17 2000We have used the BIMA array to image the Galactic Center with a 19-pointing mosaic in HCN(1-0), HCO+(1-0), and H 42-alpha emission with 5 km/s velocity resolution and 13'' x 4'' angular resolution. The 5' field includes the circumnuclear ring (CND) and ... More
A Wide-field Hubble Space Telescope Survey of the Cluster Cl 0024+16 at z=0.4. III: Spectroscopic Signatures of Environmental Evolution in Early Type GalaxiesAug 02 2005We report results from a panoramic spectroscopic survey of 955 objects in the field of the rich cluster Cl 0024+1654 (z~0.4), complementing the HST imaging presented in the first paper in this series. Our new spectroscopic sample includes over 200 high ... More
Galaxies Probing Galaxies in PRIMUS - II. The Coherence Scale of the Cool Circumgalactic MediumJun 22 2018Sep 21 2018The circumgalactic medium (CGM) close to ~L* star-forming galaxies hosts strong MgII 2796 absorption (with equivalent width W_2796>0.1 Ang) with a near-unity covering fraction. To characterize the spatial coherence of this absorption, we analyze the W_2796 ... More
X-rays across the galaxy population I: tracing the main sequence of star formationNov 10 2016We use deep Chandra imaging to measure the distribution of X-ray luminosities (L_X) for samples of star-forming galaxies as a function of stellar mass and redshift, using a Bayesian method to push below the nominal X-ray detection limits. Our luminosity ... More
Mass Transfer in Binary Stars using SPH. II. Eccentric BinariesNov 09 2010Despite numerous efforts to better understand binary star evolution, some aspects of it remain poorly constrained. In particular, the evolution of eccentric binaries has remained elusive mainly because the Roche lobe formalism derived for circular binaries ... More
Wave damping by MHD turbulence and its effect upon cosmic ray propagation in the ISMNov 17 2003Cosmic rays scatter off magnetic irregularities (Alfven waves) with which they are resonant, that is waves of wavelength comparable to their gyroradii. These waves may be generated either by the cosmic rays themselves, if they stream faster than the Alfven ... More
The Structural Effects of Rotation in Low Mass StarsMar 08 1999We present theoretical models of rotating low mass stars (0.1 - 1.0 \Msun) to demonstrate the effect of rotation on the effective temperature and luminosity of stars. The range of rotation rates in our models corresponds to the observed rotation rates ... More
