Welcome to the St Andrews Research Repository
This is the official institutional research repository for the University of St Andrews. The repository contains electronic theses and research publications including articles, conference proceedings, working papers and some research monographs. It also contains material and publications affiliated to the University and arising from specific projects. Full text content is provided for all research publications in the repository, and wherever possible (following embargoes) for electronic theses.
The University requires submission of an electronic version of theses. For help with electronic thesis deposit see Library webpages on how to submit your electronic copy or contact Digital-Repository@st-andrews.ac.uk.

(2016-07-01) - Journal articleWe study the stellar-to-halo mass relation of central galaxies in the range 9.7 < log 10(M*/h− 2 M⊙) < 11.7 and z < 0.4, obtained from a combined analysis of the Kilo Degree Survey (KiDS) and the Galaxy And Mass Assembly ...
(2017-10-26) - Journal article
(2016-12) - Journal articleWe report on a search for new low-surface-brightness galaxies (LSBGs) using Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) data within the Galaxy And Mass Assembly (GAMA) equatorial fields. The search method consisted of masking objects ...
Galaxy and Mass Assembly (GAMA) : formation and growth of elliptical galaxies in the group environment (2017-06) - Journal articleThere are many proposed mechanisms driving the morphological transformation of disc galaxies to elliptical galaxies. In this paper, we determine if the observed transformation in low-mass groups can be explained by the ...
(2017-04) - Journal articleWe present ProFit, a new code for Bayesian two-dimensional photometric galaxy profile modelling. ProFit consists of a low-level c++ library (libprofit), accessible via a command-line interface and documented API, along ...
