Radio spectral properties at 150-5000MHz of star-forming galaxies in the ELAIS-N1 field

Distribution of radio spectral index at observed 150–610 MHz

By combining high-sensitivity LOFAR 150 MHz, uGMRT 400 MHz, GMRT 610 MHz, and JVLA 5 GHz data in the ELAIS-N1 field, we study the radio spectral properties of radio-detected star-forming galaxies (SFGs) at observer-frame frequencies of 150-5000 MHz. We select ~ 3,500 SFGs that have both LOFAR 150 MHz and GMRT 610 MHz detections by …

Invertible mapping between fields in CAMELS

We build a bijective mapping between different physical fields from hydrodynamic CAMELS simulations. We train a CycleGAN on three different setups: translating dark matter to neutral hydrogen (Mcdm-HI), mapping between dark matter and magnetic fields magnitude (Mcdm-B), and finally predicting magnetic fields magnitude from neutral hydrogen (HI-B). We assess the performance of the models using …

MIGHTEE-HI: Possible interactions with the galaxy NGC~895

The transformation and evolution of a galaxy is strongly influenced by interactions with its environment. Neutral hydrogen (HI) is an excellent way to trace these interactions. Here, we present HI observations of the spiral galaxy NGC~895, which was previously thought to be isolated. High-sensitivity HI observations from the MeerKAT large survey project MIGHTEE reveal possible …

An HI story of galaxies in Abell 2626 and beyond

Context: To study the effects of environment on galaxies we use HI observations of galaxies in and around the cluster A2626. The cluster can effectively be divided in three different environments: the cluster itself, a group environment in the periphery of the cluster (we call it the Swarm) and substructure in the cluster itself. We …
