Technical & Science Documents

white paper introduces the next generation Very Large Array (ngVLA) concept and summarizes the initial design and priority science goals.

Over the past year, the astronomical community has been considering a range of compelling science goals that can only be enabled by a ngVLA. These science goals are described in a series of white papers published in the ngVLA memo series:

  • Andrea Isella (Rice) et al., 2015, Cradle of Life
  • Eric Murphy (Caltech) et al., 2015, Galaxy Ecosystems
  • Caitlin Casey (UC Irvine) et al., 2015, Galaxy Assembly Through Cosmic Time
  • Geoffrey Bower (ASIAA) et al., 2015, Time Domain, Cosmology, Physics

These white papers will be expanded with new ideas & more detailed analyses as the project progresses.
