Using the Value of Information (VoI) Metric to Improve Sensemaking

Kavli Affiliate: John Richardson | First 5 Authors: Mark Mittrick, John Richardson, Derrik E. Asher, Alex James, Timothy Hanratty | Summary: Sensemaking is the cognitive process of extracting information, creating schemata from knowledge, making decisions from those schemata, and inferring conclusions. Human analysts are essential to exploring and quantifying this process, but they are limited […]

The Inner Solar System’s Habitability Through Time

Kavli Affiliate: Laura Schaefer | First 5 Authors: Anthony D. Del Genio, David Brain, Lena Noack, Laura Schaefer, | Summary: Earth, Mars, and Venus, irradiated by an evolving Sun, have had fascinating but diverging histories of habitability. Although only Earth’s surface is considered to be habitable today, all three planets might have simultaneously been habitable […]

Film dynamics and lubricant depletion by droplets moving on lubricated surfaces

Kavli Affiliate: Joanna Aizenberg | First 5 Authors: Michael J. Kreder, Dan Daniel, Adam Tetreault, Zhenle Cao, Baptiste Lemaire | Summary: Lubricated surfaces have shown promise in numerous applications where impinging foreign droplets must be removed easily; however, before they can be widely adopted, the problem of lubricant depletion, which eventually leads to decreased performance, […]

Spectral Analysis of Jet Substructure with Neural Networks: Boosted Higgs Case

Kavli Affiliate: Mihoko M. Nojiri | First 5 Authors: Sung Hak Lim, Mihoko M. Nojiri, , , | Summary: Jets from boosted heavy particles have a typical angular scale which can be used to distinguish them from QCD jets. We introduce a machine learning strategy for jet substructure analysis using a spectral function on the […]

X-ray Properties of SPT Selected Galaxy Clusters at 0.2<z<1.5 Observed with XMM-Newton

Kavli Affiliate: Eric D. Miller | First 5 Authors: Esra Bulbul, I-Non Chiu, Joseph J. Mohr, Michael McDonald, Bradford Benson | Summary: We present measurements of the X-ray observables of the intra-cluster medium (ICM), including luminosity $L_X$, ICM mass $M_{ICM}$, emission-weighted mean temperature $T_X$, and integrated pressure $Y_X$, that are derived from XMM-Newton X-ray observations […]

Inferred Evidence For Dark Matter Kinematic Substructure with SDSS-Gaia

Kavli Affiliate: Lina Necib | First 5 Authors: Lina Necib, Mariangela Lisanti, Vasily Belokurov, , | Summary: We use the distribution of accreted stars in SDSS-Gaia DR2 to demonstrate that a non-trivial fraction of the dark matter halo within Galactocentric radii of 7.5-10 kpc and $|z| > 2.5$ kpc is in substructure, and thus may […]
