Abstract:AbstractThe detailed study of the Galactic stellar halo may hold the key to unlocking the assembly history of the Milky Way. Here, we present a machine learning model for selecting metal poor stars from the TGAS catalogue using 5 dimensional phase-space information, coupled with optical and near-IR photometry. We characterise the degree of substructure in our halo sample in the Solar neighbourhood by measuring the velocity correlation function.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
