Selected on Tuesday, 28 May 2019 from a total of 764 papers published last month in ApJ, AJ, MNRAS and A&A.
We meet every Monday at 2pm at the McGill Space Institute to discuss 5 random astrophysics papers.
The goal of Random Papers is to gain a broad view of current astrophysics research. Each week we run a script to choose 5 random papers published in the last month in refereed astrophysics journals. This gives a different slice of the literature than the typical astro-ph discussion, with papers from outside our own research areas or those that might not otherwise be chosen for discussion.
Rather than reading each paper in depth, the goal is to focus on the big picture, with questions such as: How would we summarize the paper in a few sentences? What are the key figures in the paper? What analysis methods are used? Why is this paper being written, and Why now?
