Strong Lensing is a powerful probe of the matter distribution in galaxies and clusters and a relevant tool for cosmography. Analyses of strong gravitational lenses with Deep Learning have become a popular approach due to these astronomical objects' rarity and image complexity. Next-generation surveys will provide more opportunities to derive scienc...

In this paper we will list a few important goals that need to be addressed in the next decade, also taking into account the current discordances between the different cosmological probes, such as the disagreement in the value of the Hubble constant $H_0$, the $\sigma_8$--$S_8$ tension, and other less statistically significant anomalies. While these...

The Southern Photometric Local Universe Survey (S-PLUS) is an ongoing survey of ∼9300 deg2 in the southern sky in a 12-band photometric system. This paper presents the second data release (DR2) of S-PLUS, consisting of 514 tiles covering an area of 950 deg2. The data has been fully calibrated using a new photometric calibration technique suitable f...

Searches for counterparts to multimessenger events with optical imagers use difference imaging to detect new transient sources. However, even with existing artifact-detection algorithms, this process simultaneously returns several classes of false positives: false detections from poor-quality image subtractions, false detections from low signal-to-...
Article
In this paper, we describe a new method to select globular cluster (GC) candidates, including galaxy subtraction with unsharp masking, template fitting techniques and the inclusion of Gaia’s proper motions. We report the use of the 12-band photometric system of S-PLUS to determine radial velocities and stellar populations of GCs around nearby galax...

We present optical follow-up imaging obtained with the Katzman Automatic Imaging Telescope, Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network, Nickel Telescope, Swope Telescope, and Thacher Telescope of the LIGO/Virgo gravitational wave (GW) signal from the neutron star–black hole (NSBH) merger GW190814. We searched the GW190814 localization region...

We present a new constraint on the Hubble constant $H_0$ using a sample of well-localized gravitational wave (GW) events detected during the first three LIGO/Virgo observing runs as dark standard sirens. In the case of dark standard sirens, a unique host galaxy is not identified, and the redshift information comes from the distribution of potential...

Borehole acoustic image logs present meaningful information about some petrophysical properties of a reservoir. The identification of these features, in addition to several supplementary data are very important to achieve a valid characterization of the reservoir itself. Among the different patterns that image logs could show, it can be mentioned f...

The non-homogeneity in the critical temperature $T_{c}$ of an Microwave Kinetic Inductance Detector (MKID) could be caused by non-uniformity in the deposition process of the thin superconducting film. This produces low percent yield and frequency collision in the readout of the MKIDs. Here, we show the homogeneity that offers Atomic Layer Depositio...

Searches and analyses of strong gravitational lenses are challenging due to the rarity and image complexity of these astronomical objects. Next-generation surveys (both ground- and space-based) will provide more opportunities to derive science from these objects, but only if they can be analyzed on realistic time-scales. Currently, these analyses a...

Article
Field characterization in oil industry is a challenging task which aims to determine or estimate some of the petrophysical properties of a reservoir. These properties are expected to be later used in a non-deterministic workflow (which might depend on subjective interpretations carried out by each petrophysicist) whose aim is to answer questions su...

Rock permeability and porosity are some of the most important features to be determined during the exploitation of a certain hydrocarbon reservoir, as these physical properties help petrophysicists understand the most likely distribution and/or presence of oil/gas reservoirs, as well as decide whether that certain field might be exploitable or not....

Formation permeability plays a crucial role in oil/gas industry as it helps geologists understand how the soil was formed and the most likely location of a certain reservoir. It also aids engineers and analysts to know whether that reservoir is exploitable or not. However, these measurements are very costly and difficult to obtain. In the past deca...

Recently it has been claimed that the Wheeler-DeWitt quantization of gravity is unable to avoid cosmological singularities. However, in order to make this assertion, one must specify the underlying interpretation of quantum mechanics which has been adopted. For instance, several nonsingular models were obtained in Wheeler-DeWitt quantum cosmology i...

Simple models of gravitational arcs are crucial to simulate large samples of these objects with full control of the input parameters. These models also provide crude and automated estimates of the shape and structure of the arcs, which are necessary when trying to detect and characterize these objects on massive wide area imaging surveys. We here p...
