Number density profiles of galaxy groups and clusters in the SDSS
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, 2008-04-20)
We use projected number density profiles of galaxy groups to investigate the relationship between galaxy group structure and dark matter structure within halos. We primarily study a specific model of how galaxies populate ...
Structure function analysis of blazars AP Librae and 3c279
(Vanderbilt University. Dept. of Physics & Astronomy, 2008-04-27)
Blazars AP Librae and 3c279 are analyzed for microvariability using a technique known as structure function analysis. AP Librae was observed in April of 2005 and 3c279 was observed in April of 2007. The data for AP Librae ...
