  • A Modified Kwee─Van Woerden Method for Eclipse Minimum Timing with Reliable Error Estimates

    The Kwee - van Woerden (KvW) method for the determination of eclipse minimum times has been a staple in eclipsing binary research for decades, due its simplicity and independence of external input parameters, which makes it also well suited to obtain timings of exoplanet transits. However, its estimates of the timing error have been known to be of

  • 2D kinematics of massive stars near the Galactic Centre

    The presence of massive stars (MSs) in the region close to the Galactic Centre (GC) poses several questions about their origin. The harsh environment of the GC favours specific formation scenarios, each of which should imprint characteristic kinematic features on the MSs. We present a 2D kinematic analysis of MSs in a GC region surrounding Sgr A*

  • An enhanced slope in the transmission spectrum of the hot Jupiter WASP-104b

    We present the optical transmission spectrum of the hot Jupiter WASP-104b based on one transit observed by the blue and red channels of the Double Spectrograph (DBSP) at the Palomar 200-inch telescope and 14 transits observed by the MuSCAT2 four-channel imager at the 1.52-m Telescopio Carlos Sánchez. We also analyse 45 additional K2 transits, after

  • Atmospheric Rossiter-McLaughlin effect and transmission spectroscopy of WASP-121b with ESPRESSO

    Context. Ultra-hot Jupiters are excellent laboratories for the study of exoplanetary atmospheres. WASP-121b is one of the most studied; many recent analyses of its atmosphere report interesting features at different wavelength ranges. Aims: In this paper we analyze one transit of WASP-121b acquired with the high-resolution spectrograph ESPRESSO at

  • BIRTH of the COSMOS field: primordial and evolved density reconstructions during cosmic high noon

    This work presents the first comprehensive study of structure formation at the peak epoch of cosmic star formation over 1.4 ≤ z ≤ 3.6 in the Cosmic Evolution Survey (COSMOS) field, including the most massive high-redshift galaxy proto-clusters at that era. We apply the extended COSMIC BIRTH algorithm to account for a multitracer and multisurvey

  • Coronal-line forest active galactic nuclei - I. Physical properties of the emission-line regions

    Coronal-line forest (CLiF) active galactic nuclei (AGNs) are characterized by strong high-ionization lines, which contrasts with what is found in most AGNs. Here, we carry out a multiwavelength analysis aimed at understanding the physical processes in the narrow-line region (NLR) of these objects, and at discovering whether they are indeed a
