The goal of today’s paper is to study using an advanced machine learning method known as neural nets to improve our ability to automatically analyze data taken straight from the telescope.
There are some papers that present relations that are important enough to get their own names. This astrobite presents three relations that have a remarkable similar shape, namely the Faber-Jackson, Tully-Fisher and M-sigma relations.
