Are there any nicely structured preference profiles nearby? [article]

Robert Bredereck, Jiehua Chen, Gerhard J. Woeginger
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We investigate the problem of deciding whether a given preference profile is close to having a certain nice structure, as for instance single-peaked, single-caved, single-crossing, value-restricted, best-restricted  ...  We measure this distance by the number of voters or alternatives that have to be deleted to make the profile a nicely structured one.  ...  There are cases where the computational tractability of voting problems on nicely structured profiles transfers to nearly nicely structured profiles and cases where the vulnerability disappears even if  ...

Are there any nicely structured preference profiles nearby?

Robert Bredereck, Jiehua Chen, Gerhard J. Woeginger
2016 Mathematical Social Sciences  
We investigate the problem of deciding whether a given preference profile is close to a nicely structured preference profile of a certain type, as for instance single-peaked, single-caved, singlecrossing  ...  We measure this distance by the number of voters or alternatives that have to be deleted so as to reach a nicely structured profile.  ...  A third line of research is to investigate whether and in which way properties of nicely structured preference profiles transfer to profiles that are only close to being nicely structured.  ...

Exploring Everyday Self-Regulation in Nearby Nature: Determinants, Patterns, and a Framework of Nearby Outdoor Recreation Behavior

Barbara Degenhardt, Matthias Buchecker
2012 Leisure Sciences  
I would personally have preferred to ride up to Zueriberg [mountain] because to go there, I wouldn't have to ride across and through the city, the many cars, the bad cycle paths that there are here.  ...  RW noted, "I prefer to go to the lake and sit there and watch the lake. That gives me a bit of peace. And the hecticness goes away a bit."  ...

The host galaxy/AGN connection in nearby early-type galaxies

A. Capetti, B. Balmaverde
2005 Astronomy and Astrophysics  
Our sample of AGN candidates is indistinguishable, when their brightness profiles are concerned, from galaxies of similar optical luminosity but hosting weaker (or no) radio-sources.  ...  However, below this threshold in radio-luminosity core and power-law galaxies coexist and they do not show any apparent difference in their radio-properties.  ...  Prominent dust features are often present and they are masked before fitting; in the radial range corresponding to dust structures, we usually preferred to fix the isophotes center, position angle and  ...

Radii of Young Star Clusters in Nearby Galaxies [article]

Gillen Brown, Oleg Y. Gnedin
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We also find that most clusters in LEGUS are gravitationally bound, especially at older ages or higher masses.  ...  We present simple toy models to interpret these age trends, finding that high-mass clusters are more likely to be not tidally limited and expand.  ...  The catalogs include properties such as mass and age that are originally from the LEGUS catalogs, which are found at https://archive.stsci. edu/prepds/legus/dataproducts-public.html.  ...

Surface Photometry of Nearby Field Galaxies: The Data

Rolf A. Jansen, Marijn Franx, Daniel Fabricant, Nelson Caldwell
2000 Astrophysical Journal Supplement Series  
We present an atlas of images, radial surface brightness profiles and color profiles, as well as tables of derived parameters.  ...  We have obtained integrated spectra and multi-filter photometry for a repre- sentative sample of ~200 nearby galaxies.  ...  Panel d identifies these systems as being physically smaller than average, while panel a shows that there is no preference towards morphological type.  ...

Implications of Halo Inside‐Out Growth for the X‐Ray Properties of Nearby Galaxy Systems within the Preheating Scenario

J. M. Solanes, A. Manrique, G. Gonzalez‐Casado, E. Salvador‐Sole
2005 Astrophysical Journal  
We find that our preferred solution to the equilibrium equations produces scaling relations in excellent agreement with observations, while simultaneously accounting for the typical structural characteristics  ...  This model is used to explain, within a standard ΛCDM cosmogony, the observed X-ray properties of nearby relaxed, non-cooling flow groups and clusters of galaxies.  ...  We are interested in confronting the predictions of this halo growth process with both the observed global and structural X-ray properties of nearby groups and clusters of galaxies and, in particular,  ...

The host galaxy/AGN connection in nearby early-type galaxies

A. Capetti, B. Balmaverde
2006 Astronomy and Astrophysics  
Thus the radio-loudness of AGN hosted by early-type galaxies appears to be univocally related to the host's brightness profile: radio-loud AGN are only hosted by core galaxies, while radio-quiet AGN are  ...  [ABRIDGED] This is the third in a series of three papers exploring the connection between the multiwavelength properties of AGN in nearby early-type galaxies and the characteristics of their hosts.  ...  This fits nicely with our finding that radio-quiet nuclei are associated with galaxies with a power-law brightness profile and suggests an extension of this link also to spiral hosts.  ...

Deprojection of light distributions of nearby systems: perspective effect and non-uniqueness

HongSheng Zhao
2000 Monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society  
The physical ranges for γ and the major axis angles are constrained analytically by requiring a positive volume density everywhere.  ...  The case for nearby dust-free systems is studied, taking into account the extra constraints from the perspective effect. It is shown analytically that a new form of non-uniqueness exists.  ...  These models have also the nice property that the PS density falls off steeper than the spherical term G(r), meaning that the models are always nearly spherical with a positive, Gaussian profile at large  ...

These loads are analyzed and summed up. As expected, the change of the turbulence intensity due to the wake effect has an impact on the internal loading of a wind turbine inside a wind farm.  ...  The resulting wind fields are used to determine the loads through a multibody simulation of an imaginary wind turbine located at FINO-1, representing a closely placed wind turbine at the outer edge of  ...  Firstly, WT 4 is spaced closer than any other turbine.
