The cluster mass–richness relation (MRR) is an observationally efficient and potentially powerful cosmological tool for constraining the matter density Ω_{m}and the amplitude of fluctuations
We analyze clustering measurements of BOSS galaxies using a simulationbased emulator of twopoint statistics. We focus on the monopole and quadrupole of the redshiftspace correlation function, and the projected correlation function, at scales of 0.1 ∼ 60

Abstract σ _{8}using the cluster abundance technique. We derive the MRR relation usingGalWCat19 , a publicly available galaxy cluster catalog we created from the Sloan Digital Sky SurveyDR13 spectroscopic data set. In the MRR, cluster mass scales with richness as . We find that the MRR we derive is consistent with both the IllustrisTNG and miniUchuu cosmological numerical simulations, with a slope of $\mathrm{log}{M}_{200}=\alpha +\beta \mathrm{log}{N}_{200}$β ≈ 1. We use the MRR we derived to estimate cluster masses from theGalWCat19 catalog, which we then use to set constraints on Ω_{m}andσ _{8}. Utilizing the allmember MRR, we obtain constraints of Ω_{m}= and ${0.31}_{0.03}^{+0.04}$σ _{8}= , and utilizing the red member MRR only, we obtain Ω_{m}= ${0.82}_{0.04}^{+0.05}$ and ${0.31}_{0.03}^{+0.04}$σ _{8}= . Our constraints on Ω_{m}and ${0.81}_{0.04}^{+0.05}$σ _{8}are consistent and very competitive with the Planck 2018 results. 
Abstract We present cosmological constraints from a gravitational lensing mass map covering 9400 deg^{2}reconstructed from measurements of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) made by the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) from 2017 to 2021. In combination with measurements of baryon acoustic oscillations and big bang nucleosynthesis, we obtain the clustering amplitude
σ _{8}= 0.819 ± 0.015 at 1.8% precision, , and the Hubble constant ${S}_{8}\equiv {\sigma}_{8}{({\mathrm{\Omega}}_{\mathrm{m}}/0.3)}^{0.5}=0.840\pm 0.028$H _{0}= (68.3 ± 1.1) km s^{−1}Mpc^{−1}at 1.6% precision. A joint constraint with Planck CMB lensing yieldsσ _{8}= 0.812 ± 0.013, , and ${S}_{8}\equiv {\sigma}_{8}{({\mathrm{\Omega}}_{\mathrm{m}}/0.3)}^{0.5}=0.831\pm 0.023$H _{0}= (68.1 ± 1.0) km s^{−1}Mpc^{−1}. These measurements agree with ΛCDM extrapolations from the CMB anisotropies measured by Planck. We revisit constraints from the KiDS, DES, and HSC galaxy surveys with a uniform set of assumptions and find thatS _{8}from all three are lower than that from ACT+Planck lensing by levels ranging from 1.7σ to 2.1σ . This motivates further measurements and comparison, not just between the CMB anisotropies and galaxy lensing but also between CMB lensing probingz ∼ 0.5–5 on mostly linear scales and galaxy lensing atz ∼ 0.5 on smaller scales. We combine with CMB anisotropies to constrain extensions of ΛCDM, limiting neutrino masses to ∑m _{ν}< 0.13 eV (95% c.l.), for example. We describe the mass map and related data products that will enable a wide array of crosscorrelation science. Our results provide independent confirmation that the universe is spatially flat, conforms with general relativity, and is described remarkably well by the ΛCDM model, while paving a promising path for neutrino physics with lensing from upcoming groundbased CMB surveys. 
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. We constrain the effective clustering amplitude of neutral hydrogen (Hi ), defined as , where Ω_{Hi}is the cosmic abundance of H ${\mathit{\ue22d}}_{\mathrm{H}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{I}}\equiv {10}^{3}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{\mathrm{\Omega}}_{\mathrm{H}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{I}}\left({b}_{\mathrm{H}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{I}}+\u3008\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}f{\mu}^{2}\u3009\right)$i ,b _{Hi}is the linear bias of Hi , and 〈f μ ^{2}〉 = 0.552 encodes the effect of redshiftspace distortions at linear order. We find for LRGs ( ${\mathit{\ue22d}}_{\mathrm{H}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{I}}={1.51}_{0.97}^{+3.60}$z = 0.84), for ELGs ( ${\mathit{\ue22d}}_{\mathrm{H}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{I}}={6.76}_{3.79}^{+9.04}$z = 0.96), and for QSOs ( ${\mathit{\ue22d}}_{\mathrm{H}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{I}}={1.68}_{0.67}^{+1.10}$z = 1.20), with constraints limited by modeling uncertainties at nonlinear scales. We are also sensitive to bias in the spectroscopic redshifts of each tracer, and we find a nonzero bias Δv = − 66 ± 20 km s^{−1}for the QSOs. We split the QSO catalog into three redshift bins and have a decisive detection in each, with the upper bin atz = 1.30 producing the highestredshift 21 cm intensity mapping measurement thus far. 
Abstract We analyze four epochs of Hubble Space Telescope imaging over 18 yr for the Draco dwarf spheroidal galaxy. We measure precise proper motions for hundreds of stars and combine these with existing lineofsight (LOS) velocities. This provides the first radially resolved 3D velocity dispersion profiles for any dwarf galaxy. These constrain the intrinsic velocity anisotropy and resolve the mass–anisotropy degeneracy. We solve the Jeans equations in oblate axisymmetric geometry to infer the mass profile. We find the velocity dispersion to be radially anisotropic along the symmetry axis and tangentially anisotropic in the equatorial plane, with a globally averaged value
, (where 1 – $\overline{{\beta}_{\mathrm{B}}}={0.20}_{0.53}^{+0.28}$ in 3D). The logarithmic dark matter (DM) density slope over the observed radial range, Γ_{dark}, is ${\beta}_{\mathrm{B}}\equiv \u3008{v}_{\mathrm{tan}}^{2}\u3009/\u3008{v}_{\mathrm{rad}}^{2}\u3009$ , consistent with the inner cusp predicted in ΛCDM cosmology. As expected given Draco’s low mass and ancient star formation history, it does not appear to have been dissolved by baryonic processes. We rule out cores larger than 487, 717, and 942 pc at 1 ${0.83}_{0.37}^{+0.32}$σ , 2σ , and 3σ confidence, respectively, thus imposing important constraints on the selfinteracting DM cross section. Spherical models yield biased estimates for both the velocity anisotropy and the inferred slope. The circular velocity at our outermost data point (900 pc) is . We infer a dynamical distance of ${24.19}_{2.97}^{+6.31}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}\mathrm{km}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}{\mathrm{s}}^{1}$ kpc and show that Draco has a modest LOS rotation, with ${75.37}_{4.00}^{+4.73}$ . Our results provide a new stringent test of the socalled “cusp–core” problem that can be readily extended to other dwarfs. $\u3008v/\sigma \u3009=0.22\pm 0.09$ 
Abstract We compare 500 pc scale, resolved observations of ionized and molecular gas for the
z ∼ 0.02 starbursting disk galaxy IRAS08339+6517, using measurements from KCWI and NOEMA. We explore the relationship of the starformationdriven ionized gas outflows with colocated galaxy properties. We find a roughly linear relationship between the outflow mass flux ( ) and star formation rate surface density (Σ_{SFR}), ${\stackrel{\u0307}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}}_{\mathrm{out}}$ , and a strong correlation between ${\stackrel{\u0307}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}}_{\mathrm{out}}\propto {\mathrm{\Sigma}}_{\mathrm{SFR}}^{1.06\pm 0.10}$ and the gas depletion time, such that ${\stackrel{\u0307}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}}_{\mathrm{out}}$ . Moreover, we find these outflows are socalled ${\stackrel{\u0307}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}}_{\mathrm{out}}\propto {t}_{\mathrm{dep}}^{1.1\pm 0.06}$breakout outflows, according to the relationship between the gas fraction and disk kinematics. Assuming that ionized outflow mass scales with total outflow mass, our observations suggest that the regions of highest Σ_{SFR}in IRAS08 are removing more gas via the outflow than through the conversion of gas into stars. Our results are consistent with a picture in which the outflow limits the ability of a region of a disk to maintain short depletion times. Our results underline the need for resolved observations of outflows in more galaxies.
