    • Exploring the variable sky with linear. II. Halo structure and substructure traced by RR Lyrae Stars to 30 kpc 

      Sesar, Branimir; Ivezic, Zeljko; Stuart, J. Scott; Morgan, Dylan M.; Becker, Andrew C.; Sharma, Sanjib; Palaversa, Lovro; Juric, Mario; Wozniak, Przemyslaw; Oluseyi, Hakeem M. (2013-08)
      We present a sample of ∼5000 RR Lyrae stars selected from the recalibrated LINEAR data set and detected at heliocentric distances between 5 kpc and 30 kpc over ∼8000 deg2 of sky. The coordinates and light curve properties, ...
    • Simulated LSST survey of RR lyrae stars throughout the local group 

      Becker, Andrew C.; Culliton, Christopher; Furqan, Muhammad; Hoadley, Keri L.; Regencia, Paul; Wells, Akeem J.; Ivezic, Zeljko; Jones, R. Lynne; Krughoff, K. Simon; Oluseyi, Hakeem M. (2012-07)
      We report on a study to determine the efficiency of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) to recover the periods, brightnesses, and shapes of RR Lyrae stars’ light curves in the volume extending to heliocentric distances ...
