Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/355379
Description: Using the RAdial Velocity Experiment fourth data release (RAVE DR4), and a new metallicity calibration that will be also taken into account in the future RAVE DR5, we investigate the existence and the ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/306635
Description: The velocity dispersions of stars near the Sun are known to increase with stellar age, but age can be difficult to determine, so a proxy like the abundance of α elements (e.g., Mg) with respect to iro ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/304801
Description: Non-axisymmetries in the Galactic potential (spiral arms and bar) induce kinematic groups such as the Hercules stream. Assuming that Hercules is caused by the effects of the outer Lindblad resonance o ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/197616
Description: We analyse the kinematics of disc stars observed by the RAdial Velocity Experiment (RAVE) survey in and beyond the solar neighbourhood. We detect significant overdensities in the velocity distribution ... More
