Dark Energy Survey Year 1 Results: Constraining Baryonic Physics in the Universe

Kavli Affiliate: Aaron Roodman | First 5 Authors: Hung-Jin Huang, Tim Eifler, Rachel Mandelbaum, Gary M. Bernstein, Anqi Chen | Summary: Measurements of large-scale structure are interpreted using theoretical predictions for the matter distribution, including potential impacts of baryonic physics. We constrain the feedback strength of baryons jointly with cosmology using weak lensing and galaxy […]

Designing angle-independent structural colors using Monte Carlo simulations of multiple scattering

Kavli Affiliate: Vinothan N. Manoharan | First 5 Authors: Victoria Hwang, Anna B. Stephenson, Solomon Barkley, Soeren Brandt, Ming Xiao | Summary: Disordered nanostructures with correlations on the scale of visible wavelengths can show angle-independent structural colors. These materials could replace dyes in some applications because the color is tunable and resists photobleaching. However, designing […]

Amplify-and-Forward Relaying for Hierarchical Over-the-Air Computation

Kavli Affiliate: Feng Wang | First 5 Authors: Feng Wang, Jie Xu, Vincent K. N. Lau, Shuguang Cui, | Summary: This paper studies a hierarchical over-the-air computation (AirComp) network over a large area, in which multiple relays are exploited to facilitate data aggregation from massive WDs. We present a two-phase amplify-and-forward (AF) relaying protocol. In […]

The thermal-radiative wind in the neutron star low mass X-ray binary GX 13+1

Kavli Affiliate: Tadayuki Takahashi | First 5 Authors: Ryota Tomaru, Chris Done, Ken Ohsuga, Hirokazu Odaka, Tadayuki Takahashi | Summary: We fit the observed high ionisation X-ray absorption lines in the neutron star binary GX13+1 with a full simulation of a thermal-radiative wind. This uses a radiation hydrodynamic code coupled to Monte Carlo radiation transfer […]
