[ArXiv] 1st week, Oct. 2007

This week, instead of only filtering AstroStatistics related papers from arxiv, I chose additional arxiv/astro-ph papers related to CHASC folks’ astrophysical projects. Some of papers you see from this week do not have sophisticated statistical analysis but contain data from specific satellites and possibly relevant information related to CHASC projects. Due to the CHACS’ long history (we are celebrating the 10th birthday this year) and my being a newbie to CHASC, I may not pick up all papers related to the projects of current, former, and future CHASC members and dedicated slog readers. For creating a satisfying posting every week, your inputs are welcome to improve my adaptive filter. For the list of this week, click the following.

[ArXiv] A Lecture Note, June 17, 2007

From arxiv/astro-ph:0706.1988,
Lectures on Astronomy, Astrophysics, and Cosmology looks helpful to statisticians who like to know astronomy, astrophysics, and cosmology. The lecture note starts from introducing fundamentals of astronomy, UNITS!!!, and its history. It also explains astronomical measures such as distances and their units, luminosity, and temperature; HR diagram (astronomers’ summary diagram); stellar evolution; and relevant topics in cosmology. At least, a third of the article will be useful to grasp a rough idea of astronomy as a scientific subject beyond colorful pictures. Statisticians who are keen to cosmology are recommended to read beyond.

This is not a high energy lecture note; therefore, statisticians interested in high energy are encouraged to visit Astro Jargon for Statisticians and CHASC.

Statistics Jargon for Astronomers

The Statistics Jargon for Astronomers has revived (Jan. 2007) but now, it is barely breathing. Effortlessly search engines and Internet encyclopedia provide details on statistical terminologies for astronomers, which cast the largest difficulty on this jargon website. We urge both astronomers and statisticians’ contributions for compiling this lexicon and their discussions on both subjects.
