DTU Researchers have traced the consequences of eruptions on the Sun that screen the Earth from some of the cosmic rays - the energetic particles raining down on our planet from exploded stars."The Sun makes fantastic natural experiments that allow us to test our ideas about its effects on the climate," lead author of a report newly published in Geophysical Research Letters Prof.
Topics include the cosmic microwave background, including the halo mass function in the dark ages, cosmic microwave background challenges to the standard model, and the role of the local void; those on cosmic dawn include redshift quasars and the Subaru telescope; those on large scale structure consider redshift-space distortions and dark energy; a number of papers describe galaxy formation and evolution, including those on age-dating the red sequence in low-redshift clusters; those on AGN evolution include the connection between black hole mass and dark matter halo mass; those on feedback and environment include constraining feedback in galaxy formation and mass and the morphology-density relation; and those on galaxy evolution and the environment include a survey.
