Distant Relatives: The Chemical Homogeneity of Comoving Pairs Identified in Gaia

Kavli Affiliate: Alexander Ji | First 5 Authors: Tyler Nelson, Yuan-Sen Ting, Keith Hawkins, Alexander Ji, Harshil Kamdar | Summary: Comoving pairs, even at the separations of $mathcal{O}(10^6),$AU, are a predicted reservoir of conatal stars. We present detailed chemical abundances of 62 stars in 31 comoving pairs with separations of $10^2 – 10^7,$AU and 3D […]

From haloes to galaxies. III. The gas cycle of local galaxy populations

Kavli Affiliate: Yingjie Peng | First 5 Authors: Jing Dou, Yingjie Peng, Alvio Renzini, Luis C. Ho, Filippo Mannucci | Summary: In Dou et al. (2021), we introduced the Fundamental Formation Relation (FFR), a tight relation between specific SFR (sSFR), H$_2$ star formation efficiency (SFE$_{rm H_2}$), and the ratio of H$_2$ to stellar mass. Here […]

Via Machinae: Searching for Stellar Streams using Unsupervised Machine Learning

Kavli Affiliate: Lina Necib | First 5 Authors: David Shih, Matthew R. Buckley, Lina Necib, John Tamanas, | Summary: We develop a new machine learning algorithm, Via Machinae, to identify cold stellar streams in data from the Gaia telescope. Via Machinae is based on ANODE, a general method that uses conditional density estimation and sideband […]

Search for $B^{+}to K^{+}νbarν$ decays using an inclusive tagging method at Belle II

Kavli Affiliate: T. Higuchi | First 5 Authors: Belle II Collaboration, F. Abudinén, I. Adachi, K. Adamczyk, P. Ahlburg | Summary: A search for the flavor-changing neutral-current decay $B^{+}to K^{+}nubar{nu}$ is performed at the Belle II experiment at the SuperKEKB asymmetric energy electron-positron collider. The results are based on a data sample corresponding to an […]

Neutral vs Ion Linewidths in Barnard 5: Evidence for Penetration by MHD Waves

Kavli Affiliate: Sarah E. Church | First 5 Authors: Jaime E. Pineda, Anika Schmiedeke, Paola Caselli, Steven W. Stahler, David T. Frayer | Summary: Dense cores are the final place where turbulence is dissipated. It has been proposed from theoretical arguments that the non-thermal velocity dispersion should be narrower both for molecular ions (compared to […]
