Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/326414
Description: We investigate the kinematic parameters of the Milky Way disk using the Radial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) and Geneva-Copenhagen Survey (GCS) stellar surveys. We do this by fitting a kinematic model to ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/145351
Description: We identify a new, nearby (0.5 kpc ≲ d ≲ 10 kpc) stream in data from the RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE). As the majority of stars in the stream lie in the constellation of Aquarius, we name it the ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/133204
Description: Very metal-poor stars are of obvious importance for many problems in chemical evolution, star formation, and galaxy evolution. Finding complete samples of such stars which are also bright enough to al ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/71961
Description: Context. Dwarf spheroidal (dSph) galaxies are the least luminous, least massive galaxies known. Recently, the number of observed galaxies in this class has greatly increased thanks to large surveys. D ... More
