What's in a name?

Hello! Just to say that the page that display a single article has been modified to show the name of the person (eventually) who submitted the paper to the database.
See http://gclusters.altervista.org/article.php?idart=522 for a working example.

Tycho-Gaia Astrometric Solution parallaxes and proper motions for 5 GGCs

We perform a systematic search for Galactic globular cluster (GC) stars in the Tycho-Gaia Astrometric Solution (TGAS) catalogue that formed part of Gaia Data Release 1 (DR1), and identify 5 members of NGC104 (47 Tucanae), 1 member of NGC5272 (M3), 5 members of NGC6121 (M4), 7 members of NGC6397, and 2 members of NGC6656 (M22). By taking a weighted average of the member stars, fully accounting for the correlations between parameter estimates, we estimate the parallax (and, hence, distance) and proper motion (PM) of the GCs.

APOGEE Chemical Abundances of GC Giants in the Inner Galaxy

We report chemical abundances obtained by SDSS-III/APOGEE for giant stars in five globular clusters located within 2.2 kpc of the Galactic centre. We detect the presence of multiple stellar populations in four of those clusters (NGC 6553, NGC 6528, Terzan 5, and Palomar 6) and find strong evidence for their presence in NGC 6522...

Discovery of a new accreting millisecond X-ray pulsar in the globular cluster NGC 2808

We report on the discovery of coherent pulsations at a period of 2.9 ms from the X-ray transient MAXI J0911-655 in the globular cluster NGC 2808. We observed X-ray pulsations at a frequency of ∼339.97 Hz in three different observations of the source performed with XMM-Newton and NuSTAR during the source outburst...

A new catalog of homogenised absorption line

We perform integrated spectroscopy of 24 Galactic globular clusters. Spectra are observed from one core radius for each cluster with a high wavelength resolution of ~2.0 A FWHM. In combination with two existing data sets from Puzia et al. (2002) and Schiavon et al. (2005), we construct a large database of Lick spectral indices for a total of 53 Galactic globular clusters with a wide range of metallicities, -2.4 < [Fe/H] < 0.1, and various horizontal-branch morphologies.
