Abstract β _{p}= 0.25) collisionless ion–electron shocks with mass ratiom _{i}/m _{e}= 200, fast Mach number –4, and upstream magnetic field angle ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{ms}}=1$θ _{Bn}= 55°–85° from the shock normal . It is known that shock electron heating is described by an ambipolar, $\stackrel{\u02c6}{\mathit{n}}$ parallel electric potential jump, ΔB ϕ _{∥}, that scales roughly linearly with the electron temperature jump. Our simulations have –0.2 in units of the preshock ions’ bulk kinetic energy, in agreement with prior measurements and simulations. Different ways to measure $\mathrm{\Delta}{\varphi}_{\parallel}/(0.5{m}_{\mathrm{i}}{{u}_{\mathrm{sh}}}^{2})\sim 0.1$ϕ _{∥}, including the use of de Hoffmann–Teller frame fields, agree to tensofpercent accuracy. Neglecting offdiagonal electron pressure tensor terms can lead to a systematic underestimate ofϕ _{∥}in our lowβ _{p}shocks. We further focus on twoθ _{Bn}= 65° shocks: a ( ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{s}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}4$ ) case with a long, 30 ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{A}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}1.8$d _{i}precursor of whistler waves along , and a $\stackrel{\u02c6}{\mathit{n}}$ ( ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{s}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}7$ ) case with a shorter, 5 ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{A}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}3.2$d _{i}precursor of whistlers oblique to both and $\stackrel{\u02c6}{\mathit{n}}$ ;B d _{i}is the ion skin depth. Within the precursors,ϕ _{∥}has a secular rise toward the shock along multiple whistler wavelengths and also has localized spikes within magnetic troughs. In a 1D simulation of the , ${\mathcal{M}}_{\mathrm{s}}\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}=\phantom{\rule{0.25em}{0ex}}4$θ _{Bn}= 65° case,ϕ _{∥}shows a weak dependence on the electron plasmatocyclotron frequency ratioω _{pe}/Ω_{ce}, andϕ _{∥}decreases by a factor of 2 asm _{i}/m _{e}is raised to the true proton–electron value of 1836. 
Abstract We combine our dynamical modeling blackhole mass measurements from the Lick AGN Monitoring Project 2016 sample with measured crosscorrelation time lags and line widths to recover individual scale factors,
f , used in traditional reverberationmapping analyses. We extend our sample by including prior results from Code for AGN Reverberation and Modeling of Emission Lines (caramel ) studies that have utilized our methods. Aiming to improve the precision of blackhole mass estimates, as well as uncover any regularities in the behavior of the broadline region (BLR), we search for correlations betweenf and other AGN/BLR parameters. We find (i) evidence for a correlation between the virial coefficient and blackhole mass, (ii) marginal evidence for a similar correlation between ${\mathrm{log}}_{10}({f}_{\mathrm{mean},\sigma})$ and blackhole mass, (iii) marginal evidence for an anticorrelation of BLR disk thickness with ${\mathrm{log}}_{10}({f}_{\mathrm{rms},\sigma})$ and ${\mathrm{log}}_{10}({f}_{\mathrm{mean},\mathrm{FWHM}})$ , and (iv) marginal evidence for an anticorrelation of inclination angle with ${\mathrm{log}}_{10}({f}_{\mathrm{rms},\mathrm{FWHM}})$ , ${\mathrm{log}}_{10}({f}_{\mathrm{mean},\mathrm{FWHM}})$ , and ${\mathrm{log}}_{10}({f}_{\mathrm{rms},\sigma})$ . Last, we find marginal evidence for a correlation between lineprofile shape, when using the rootmeansquare spectrum, ${\mathrm{log}}_{10}({f}_{\mathrm{mean},\sigma})$ , and the virial coefficient, ${\mathrm{log}}_{10}{(\mathrm{FWHM}/\sigma )}_{\mathrm{rms}}$ , and investigate how BLR properties might be related to lineprofile shape using ${\mathrm{log}}_{10}({f}_{\mathrm{rms},\sigma})$caramel models. 
Abstract A test of lepton flavor universality in
and ${\text{B}}^{\pm}\to {\text{K}}^{\pm}{\mu}^{+}{\mu}^{}$ decays, as well as a measurement of differential and integrated branching fractions of a nonresonant ${\text{B}}^{\pm}\to {\text{K}}^{\pm}{\text{e}}^{+}{\text{e}}^{}$ decay are presented. The analysis is made possible by a dedicated data set of protonproton collisions at ${\text{B}}^{\pm}\to {\text{K}}^{\pm}{\mu}^{+}{\mu}^{}$ recorded in 2018, by the CMS experiment at the LHC, using a special highrate data stream designed for collecting about 10 billion unbiased b hadron decays. The ratio of the branching fractions $\sqrt{s}=13{\textstyle}\text{TeV}$ to $B({\text{B}}^{\pm}\to {\text{K}}^{\pm}{\mu}^{+}{\mu}^{})$ is determined from the measured double ratio $B({\text{B}}^{\pm}\to {\text{K}}^{\pm}{\text{e}}^{+}{\text{e}}^{})$ of these decays to the respective branching fractions of the $R(\text{K})$ with ${\text{B}}^{\pm}\to \text{J}/\text{\psi}{\text{K}}^{\pm}$ and $\text{J}/\text{\psi}\to {\mu}^{+}{\mu}^{}$ decays, which allow for significant cancellation of systematic uncertainties. The ratio ${\text{e}}^{+}{\text{e}}^{}$ is measured in the range $R(\text{K})$ , where $1.1<{q}^{2}<6.0{\textstyle}{\text{GeV}}^{2}$q is the invariant mass of the lepton pair, and is found to be , in agreement with the standard model expectation $R(\text{K})={0.78}_{0.23}^{+0.47}$ . This measurement is limited by the statistical precision of the electron channel. The integrated branching fraction in the same $R(\text{K})\approx 1$q ^{2}range, , is consistent with the present worldaverage value and has a comparable precision. $B({\text{B}}^{\pm}\to {\text{K}}^{\pm}{\mu}^{+}{\mu}^{})=(12.42\pm 0.68)\times {10}^{8}$ 
Abstract Polyatomic molecules have been identified as sensitive probes of chargeparity violating and parity violating physics beyond the Standard Model (BSM). For example, many linear triatomic molecules are both lasercoolable and have parity doublets in the ground electronic
state arising from the bending vibration, both features that can greatly aid BSM searches. Understanding the $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ state is a crucial prerequisite to precision measurements with linear polyatomic molecules. Here, we characterize the fundamental bending vibration of $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ YbOH using highresolution optical spectroscopy on the nominally forbidden ${}^{174}$ $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ transition at 588 nm. We assign 39 transitions originating from the lowest rotational levels of the $\to \tilde{A}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Pi}}_{1/2}(000)$ state, and accurately model the state’s structure with an effective Hamiltonian using bestfit parameters. Additionally, we perform Stark and Zeeman spectroscopy on the $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ state and fit the moleculeframe dipole moment to $\tilde{X}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Sigma}}^{+}(010)$ ${D}_{\mathrm{m}\mathrm{o}\mathrm{l}}=2.16(1)$D and the effective electrong factor to . Further, we use an empirical model to explain observed anomalous line intensities in terms of interference from spin–orbit and vibronic perturbations in the excited ${g}_{S}=2.07(2)$ state. Our work is an essential step toward searches for BSM physics in YbOH and other linear polyatomic molecules. $\tilde{A}{}^{2}{\mathrm{\Pi}}_{1/2}(000)$ 
Abstract We derive the central stellar velocity dispersion function (VDF) for quiescent galaxies in 280 massive clusters with
in IllustrisTNG300. The VDF is an independent tracer of the dark matter mass distribution of subhalos in galaxy clusters. Based on the IllustrisTNG cluster catalog, we select quiescent member subhalos with a specific star formation rate <2 × 10^{−11}yr^{−1}and stellar mass $\mathrm{log}({M}_{200}/{M}_{\odot})>14$ . We then simulate fiber spectroscopy to measure the stellar velocity dispersion of the simulated galaxies; we compute the lineofsight velocity dispersions of star particles within a cylindrical volume that penetrates the core of each subhalo. We construct the VDFs for quiescent subhalos within $\mathrm{log}({M}_{*}/{M}_{\odot})>9$R _{200}. The simulated cluster VDF exceeds the simulated field VDF for , indicating the preferential formation of large velocity dispersion galaxies in dense environments. The excess is similar in simulations and in the observations. We also compare the simulated VDF for the three most massive clusters with $\mathrm{log}{\sigma}_{*}>2.2$ with the observed VDF for the two most massive clusters in the local Universe, Coma and A2029. Intriguingly, the simulated VDFs are significantly lower for $\mathrm{log}({M}_{200}/{M}_{\odot})>15$ . This discrepancy results from (1) a smaller number of subhalos with $\mathrm{log}{\sigma}_{*}>2.0$ in TNG300 compared to the observed clusters, and (2) a significant offset between the observed and simulated $\mathrm{log}({M}_{*}/{M}_{\odot})>10$M _{*}–σ _{*}relations. The consistency in the overall shape of the observed and simulated VDFs offers a unique window into galaxy and structure formation in simulations.
