We present a catalog of 536 fast radio bursts (FRBs) detected by the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment Fast Radio Burst (CHIME/FRB) Project between 400 and 800 MHz from 2018 July 25 to 2019 July 1, including 62 bursts from 18 previously reported repeating sources. The catalog represents the first large sample, including bursts from repeaters and nonrepeaters, observed in a single survey with uniform selection effects. This facilitates comparative and absolute studies of the FRB population. We show that repeaters and apparent nonrepeaters have sky locations and dispersion measures (DMs) that are consistent with being drawn from the same distribution. However, bursts from repeating sources differ from apparent nonrepeaters in intrinsic temporal width and spectral bandwidth. Through injection of simulated events into our detection pipeline, we perform an absolute calibration of selection effects to account for systematic biases. We find evidence for a population of FRBs—composing a large fraction of the overall population—with a scattering time at 600 MHz in excess of 10 ms, of which only a small fraction are observed by CHIME/FRB. We infer a powerlaw index for the cumulative fluence distribution of
Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are brief, energetic, typically extragalactic flashes of radio emission whose progenitors are largely unknown. Although studying the FRB population is essential for understanding how these astrophysical phenomena occur, such studies have been difficult to conduct without large numbers of FRBs and characterizable observational biases. Using the recently released catalog of 536 FRBs published by the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment/Fast Radio Burst (CHIME/FRB) collaboration, we present a study of the FRB population that also calibrates for selection effects. Assuming a Schechter function, we infer a characteristic energy cutoff of

Abstract We present a multiwavelength analysis of the galaxy cluster SPTCL J06074448 (SPT0607), which is one of the most distant clusters discovered by the South Pole Telescope at
z = 1.4010 ± 0.0028. The highredshift cluster shows clear signs of being relaxed with wellregulated feedback from the active galactic nucleus (AGN) in the brightest cluster galaxy (BCG). Using Chandra Xray data, we construct thermodynamic profiles and determine the properties of the intracluster medium. The coolcore nature of the cluster is supported by a centrally peaked density profile and low central entropy ( keV cm^{2}), which we estimate assuming an isothermal temperature profile due to the limited spectral information given the distance to the cluster. Using the density profile and gas cooling time inferred from the Xray data, we find a masscooling rate ${K}_{0}={18}_{9}^{+11}$ yr^{−1}. From optical spectroscopy and photometry around the [O ${\stackrel{\u0307}{M}}_{\mathrm{cool}}={100}_{60}^{+90}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{M}_{\odot}$ii ] emission line, we estimate that the BCG star formation rate is yr^{−1}, roughly two orders of magnitude lower than the predicted masscooling rate. In addition, using ATCA radio data at 2.1 GHz, we measure a radio jet power ${\mathrm{SFR}}_{[\mathrm{O}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{II}]}={1.7}_{0.6}^{+1.0}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{M}_{\odot}$ erg s^{−1}, which is consistent withmore » ${P}_{\mathrm{cav}}={3.2}_{1.3}^{+2.1}\times {10}^{44}$ 
Abstract We present a chemodynamical study of the Grus I ultrafaint dwarf galaxy (UFD) from mediumresolution (
R ∼ 11,000) Magellan/IMACS spectra of its individual member stars. We identify eight confirmed members of Grus I, based on their low metallicities and coherent radial velocities, and four candidate members for which only velocities are derived. In contrast to previous work, we find that Grus I has a very low mean metallicity of 〈[Fe/H]〉 = −2.62 ± 0.11 dex, making it one of the most metalpoor UFDs. Grus I has a systemic radial velocity of −143.5 ± 1.2 km s^{−1}and a velocity dispersion of km s^{−1}, which results in a dynamical mass of ${\sigma}_{\mathrm{rv}}={2.5}_{0.8}^{+1.3}$ ${M}_{1/2}({r}_{h})={8}_{4}^{+12}\times {10}^{5}$M _{⊙}and a masstolight ratio ofM/L _{V}= ${440}_{250}^{+650}$M _{⊙}/L _{⊙}. Under the assumption of dynamical equilibrium, our analysis confirms that Grus I is a darkmatterdominated UFD (M/L > 80M _{⊙}/L _{⊙}). However, we do not resolve a metallicity dispersion (σ _{[Fe/H]}< 0.44 dex). Our results indicate that Grus I is a fairly typical UFD with parameters that agree with mass–metallicity and metallicityluminosity trends for faint galaxies. This agreement suggests that Grus I has not lost an especially significant amount of mass from tidal encounters with the Milky Way, in linemore » 
Abstract We present a detection of 21 cm emission from largescale structure (LSS) between redshift 0.78 and 1.43 made with the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment. Radio observations acquired over 102 nights are used to construct maps that are foreground filtered and stacked on the angular and spectral locations of luminous red galaxies (LRGs), emissionline galaxies (ELGs), and quasars (QSOs) from the eBOSS clustering catalogs. We find decisive evidence for a detection when stacking on all three tracers of LSS, with the logarithm of the Bayes factor equal to 18.9 (LRG), 10.8 (ELG), and 56.3 (QSO). An alternative frequentist interpretation, based on the likelihood ratio test, yields a detection significance of 7.1
σ (LRG), 5.7σ (ELG), and 11.1σ (QSO). These are the first 21 cm intensity mapping measurements made with an interferometer.

Abstract The genericity of Arnold diffusion in the analytic category is an open problem. In this paper, we study this problem in the following
a priori unstable Hamiltonian system with a timeperiodic perturbation where ${\mathcal{H}}_{\epsilon}(p,q,I,\phi ,t)=h(I)+\sum _{i=1}^{n}\pm \left(\frac{1}{2}{p}_{i}^{2}+{V}_{i}({q}_{i})\right)+\epsilon {H}_{1}(p,q,I,\phi ,t),$ , $(p,q)\in {\mathbb{R}}^{n}\times {\mathbb{T}}^{n}$ with $(I,\phi )\in {\mathbb{R}}^{d}\times {\mathbb{T}}^{d}$n ,d ⩾ 1,V _{i}are Morse potentials, andɛ is a small nonzero parameter. The unperturbed Hamiltonian is not necessarily convex, and the induced inner dynamics does not need to satisfy a twist condition. Using geometric methods we prove that Arnold diffusion occurs for generic analytic perturbationsH _{1}. Indeed, the set of admissibleH _{1}isC ^{ω}dense andC ^{3}open (a fortiori ,C ^{ω}open). Our perturbative technique for the genericity is valid in theC ^{k}topology for allk ∈ [3, ∞) ∪ {∞,ω }.
