    • n co A prefix of Latin origin, the usual form, before a vowel or h, of com- (the m in Latin being weak), meaning ‘together’ or ‘with.’ See com-. It is now freely used in English in composition with words of any origin, being preferred to com- or con- in combination with words of non-Latin origin, or with words of Latin origin in common use, words in co- being thus sometimes parallel to words in com- (con-, cor-, etc.) of the same ultimate elements, but the prefix, in the latter case, being attached in Latin, as in co-act, co-active (different from coact, coactive), co-agent, co-exist, co-laborer, co-respondent (distinct from cor-respondent), etc., or, with words of purely English origin, as in co-mate, co-worker, etc.

In science:

Further indication of the orientation of the shock front comes from CO (J = 3 − 2) observations by Frail & Mitchell (1998) which show a ridge of shocked CO emission parallel to the line of masers.
OH Zeeman Magnetic Field Detections Toward Five Supernova Remnants Using the VLA
Now, as our prototype is the theory Th(Q, <), it is natural to look at cofinality, this is dual-cf( ¯b, A), measuring the cofinality of approaching ¯b from above (here ¯b is always indiscernible sequences with no lat member).
Classification theory for theories with NIP - a modest beginning
Because of the difficulty of a direct measure, the amount of molecular gas (H2 ) is often inferred from easier measurement of CO emission lines, assumed an H2/CO conversion.
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
The gas mass is usually estimated from mm-wave CO line emission and from mm continuum observations of dust emission (assuming suitable conversion factors for H2/CO and dust/gas).
High-Redshift Galaxies: The Far-Infrared and Sub-Millimeter View
CO emission has been detected in NGC 1275, the central galaxy of the Perseus cluster (Lazareff et al. 1989); however, this is the only CO detection in a cooling flow, and the relationship of the ∼ 1010M⊙ of molecular gas to the cooling flow is not understood.
A Moderate Cluster Cooling Flow Model
Both the eight QSOs detected in CO and the four QSOs with non-detections have high infrared-to-CO luminosity ratios, LIR/L′ CO , relative to most infrared luminous galaxies of the same LIR .
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
If the observed high values of LIR/L′ CO are primarily due to dust heating by QSOs, a significant fraction of CO may also contain buried AGN.
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
Conservative upper limits to the CO luminosity and molecular gas mass were then calculated from the 3σ upper limits to the CO flux density.
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
An interesting issue is whether or not the CO luminosities of these sources, and perhaps the CO luminosities of other PG QSOs as well, could have been predicted apriori.
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
Consider the plot of CO flux versus the 100µm flux density of the PG QSO sample, in addition to a comparative sample of z < 0.3 warm and cool ULIGs observed in CO to date (Figure 3).
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
Solomon et al. (1997) use the tightness of this correlation, in combination with the small sizes of the CO emitting regions in ULIGs, to argue that the dust emission at 100µm and the CO(1→0) emission is optically thick (see their Figure 4).
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
The 4′′ resolution of the present CO dataset is insufficient to determine how compact the CO emitting regions in these PG QSOs are (e.g., 4′′ corresponds to ∼ 6 kpc at z ∼ 0.1).
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
Figure 5a shows that the quantity LIR increases as L′ CO increases, and for any given CO luminosity bin, the QSOs are in the upper half of the distribution.
Molecular Gas in Infrared-Excess, Optically-Selected QSOs and the Connection with Infrared Luminous Galaxies
Figure 6 is a plot of the CO luminosity of the eight PG QSOs detected in CO to date, as well as all of the moderate (0.3 < z ∼< 2) and high-redshift CO luminous QSOs, versus the redshift.
