The Significance of Void Shape: Neutrino Mass from Voronoi Void-Halos?

Kavli Affiliate: Jia Liu | First 5 Authors: Adrian E. Bayer, Jia Liu, Christina D. Kreisch, Alice Pisani, | Summary: Massive neutrinos suppress the growth of cosmic structure on nonlinear scales, motivating the use of information beyond the power spectrum to tighten constraints on the neutrino mass, for example by considering cosmic voids. It was […]

The Milky Way Atlas for Linear Filaments

Kavli Affiliate: Ke Wang | First 5 Authors: Ke Wang, Yifei Ge, Tapas Baug, , | Summary: Filamentary structure is important for the ISM and star formation. Galactic distribution of filaments may regulate the star formation rate in the Milky Way. However, interstellar filaments are intrinsically complex, making it difficult to study quantitatively. Here, we […]
