Ranked Document Retrieval in (Almost) No SpaceJul 23 2012Ranked document retrieval is a fundamental task in search engines. Such queries are solved with inverted indexes that require additional 45%-80% of the compressed text space, and take tens to hundreds of microseconds per query. In this paper we show how ... More

Pathways to quiescence: SHARDS view on the Star Formation Histories of massive quiescent galaxies at 1.0 < z < 1.5Jul 28 2015Jan 21 2016We present Star Formation Histories (SFHs) for a sample of 104 massive (stellar mass M > 10$^{10}$ M$_{\odot}$) quiescent galaxies (MQGs) at $z$=1.0-1.5 from the analysis of spectro-photometric data from the SHARDS and HST/WFC3 G102 and G141 surveys of ...

Interacting LAEs at z = 5.1. Episodic star formation in a group of LAEs at z= 5.07Jun 28 2014We are undertaking a search for high-redshift low luminosity Lyman Alpha sources in the SHARDS survey. Among the pre-selected Lyman Alpha sources 2 candidates were spotted, located 3.19 arcsec apart, and tentatively at the same redshift. Here we report ... More

X-ray absorption, nuclear infrared emission and dust covering factors of AGN: testing Unification SchemesJan 18 2016Jan 22 2016We present the distributions of geometrical covering factors of active galactic nuclei (AGNs) dusty tori (f2) using an X-ray selected complete sample of 227 AGN drawn from the Bright Ultra-hard XMM-Newton Survey. The AGN have z from 0.05 to 1.7, 2-10 ... More

CARMENES input catalogue of M dwarfs II. High-resolution imaging with FastCamAug 29 2016Aims: We search for low-mass companions of M dwarfs and characterize their multiplicity fraction with the purpose of helping in the selection of the most appropriate targets for the CARMENES exoplanet survey. Methods: We obtained high-resolution images ... More

Optically faint massive Balmer Break Galaxies at z>3 in the CANDELS/GOODS fieldsJun 11 2018We present a sample of 33 Balmer Break Galaxies (BBGs) selected as dropouts in the deepest HST/F160W images of the two CANDELS/GOODS fields (i.e., $H\gtrsim27.3$ mag) but relatively bright in Spitzer/IRAC ($[3.6],[4.5]<24.5$ mag). Half of these BBGs are ... More

A probabilistic atlas of the human thalamic nuclei combining ex vivo MRI and histologyJun 22 2018The human thalamus is a brain structure that comprises numerous, highly specific nuclei. Since these nuclei are known to have different functions and to be connected to different areas of the cerebral cortex, it is of great interest for the neuroimaging ... More
