    Princeton University/Institute for Advanced Study Galread [Galactic/Extragalactic Reading Group]
    “Testing the Large-Scale Environments of Cool-core and Non-cool-core Clusters with Clustering Bias”

    Location: Princeton University, Peyton Hall, Grand Central
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Discussion Leader Elinor Medezinski

    Description: Each week, we hold a relatively informal seminar/discussion series in Peyton Hall with an emphasis on extra-galactic and large-scale structure astrophysics. During Galread a leader/visitor presents a recent paper to the discussion group. The PDF of the paper is projected onto a large screen, and a guest explains the paper, section by section, in greater detail than may be explained within the text of the article. To aid with discussion, only the article PDF is presented -- no powerpoint-style slides. Galread discussions are very friendly and interactive. If you would like to present at Galread, please contact Andy Goulding (goulding[at]astro.princeton.edu) or Jenny Greene (jgreene[at]astro.princeton.edu).

    University of Pennsylvania Physics & Astronomy Seminar
    “The Twisted Universe: The Cosmic Quest to Reveal Which End is Up”

    Location: David Rittenhouse Laboratory (209 South 33rd Street), Room A8
    Time: 2:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Brian Keating, University of California, San Diego
    Note: Location is A4.

    Description: The cosmic microwave background (CMB) has spectacularly advanced our understanding of the origin, composition, and evolution of our universe. Yet there is still much to glean from this, the oldest light in the universe. Powerful telescopes are plying the skies in a quest to discover new physics. This talk concentrates on measurements by cutting-edge CMB telescopes which offer a glimpse into an exhilarating, and largely unexplored branch of astrophysics: the search for unique signatures in the polarization of the CMB.

    Institute for Advanced Study Informal Astrophysics Seminar
    “New Information in Ancient Photons: Novel Approaches to CMB Foregrounds and Secondary Anisotropies”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall, Astrophysics Library
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Colin Hill, Institute for Advanced Study

    Description: Studies of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) radiation have driven the current era of precision cosmology.  The tightest cosmological constraints to date have been derived from the primary CMB anisotropies, which predominantly probe the universe in its infancy.  However, CMB experiments have recently entered a new regime in which constraints derived from the secondary anisotropies -- sourced by effects between our vantage point and the surface of last scattering -- substantially improve upon those derived from the primary anisotropies alone.  Moreover, the secondary anisotropies contain valuable astrophysical information about the distribution and thermodynamic properties of baryons and dark matter at late times.  I will describe new approaches to extract information from these signals, highlighting recent results related to the thermal (tSZ) and kinematic Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (kSZ) effects, which refer to the Compton-scattering of CMB photons off ionized gas with high temperature or non-zero bulk momentum, respectively.  In particular, I will show how the kSZ effect probes the abundance of ionized gas in and around modern-day galaxies, which I have used to resolve the long-standing "missing baryon problem".  I will then discuss new methods for combining multi-frequency CMB data to extract these signals in the presence of large (and correlated) foregrounds, with additional applications to CMB polarization data.  I will conclude with a look ahead to such measurements with the Simons Observatory (SO), focusing on methods to determine the optimal frequency coverage of the large-aperture SO telescope for secondary anisotropy science, including CMB lensing.

    Rutgers University Astrophysics Seminar
    “Insights into Dark Matter from the Stellar Halos of Galaxies”

    Location: Serin Hall, Room 401
    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Robyn Sanderson, California Institute of Technology
    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: Cosmological simulations can now make specific and detailed predictions for the shapes, masses, and substructure fractions in galactic dark matter halos that depend on the dark matter model assumed. Comparing these predictions to the observed mass distributions of galaxies should in principle lead to constraints on the nature of dark matter, but observable dynamical tracers can be scarce in regions where the dark matter distribution is best able to discriminate between models. One such region is the distant outskirts of galaxies, where the influence of baryonic matter on the dark matter halo is limited and the effect of dark substructures most prominent. New surveys of Milky Way stars like Gaia, alongside next-generation instruments and giant telescopes, are for the first time providing accurate positions, velocities, and abundances for large numbers of stars in faint tidal streams: remnants of tidally-disrupted satellite galaxies that trace out the mass distribution in the distant reaches of galaxy halos. I will show how state-of-the-art simulations play a crucial role in interpreting and analyzing this wealth of new information about stellar halos, and how stellar halo observations over the next decade will characterize the dark matter distribution in galaxies, test theories of the nature of dark matter, and illuminate the role of dark matter in galaxy formation.

    Princeton University Astroplasmas Seminar
    “Generalized, Energy-Conserving Numerical Integration of Geodesics in General Relativity”

    Location: Princeton University, Peyton Hall, Dome Room, Room 201
    Time: 12:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Fabio Bacchini and Bart Ripperda, University of Leuven

    Description: The numerical integration of particle trajectories in curved spacetimes is fundamental for obtaining realistic models of the particle dynamics around massive compact objects such as black holes and neutron stars. Generalized algorithms capable of handling generic metrics are required for studies of both standard spacetimes Schwarzschild and Kerr metrics) and non-standard spacetimes (e.g. Schwarzschild metric plus non-classical perturbations or multiple black hole metrics). The most commonly employed explicit numerical schemes (e.g. Runge-Kutta) are incapable of producing highly accurate results at critical points, e.g. in the regions close to the event horizon where gravity causes extreme curvature of the spacetime, at an acceptable computational cost. Here, we describe a generalized algorithm for the numerical integration of time-like (massive particles) and null (photons) geodesics in any given 3+1 split spacetime. We introduce a new, exactly energy-conserving implicit integration scheme based on the preservation of the underlying Hamiltonian, and we compare its properties with a standard fourth-order Runge-Kutta explicit scheme and an implicit midpoint scheme. We test the numerical performance of the three schemes against analytical solutions of test particle and photon orbits in Schwarzschild and Kerr spacetimes. We also prove the versatility of our framework in handling more exotic metrics such as Morris-Thorne wormholes and quantum-perturbed Schwarzschild black holes. The generalized approach is also discussed in the perspective of future extensions to more complex particle dynamics, e.g. the addition of the Lorentz force acting on charged particles.

    “Measuring Dark Energy With Supernovae and Kilonovae”

    Location: Serin Hall, Room 401
    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Daniel Scolnic, University of Chicago
    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: The next decade will be the golden age of cosmology with transients. In this talk, I will present new analyses of Type Ia Supernovae that mark the most precise measurement of dark energy to date. I will go over how this analysis ties together with the analysis of the local value of the Hubble constant, for which tension persists with the inferred value from the CMB - an exciting hint at possible departures from the standard cosmological model. I will then discuss the first measurements of the Hubble constant with kilonovae and gravitational waves. I will review the large amount of overlap between the issues that must be tackled for future progress using supernovae and kilonovae to measure cosmological parameters. Finally, I will discuss the roles that surveys like LSST and WFIRST will play and how we can harness the millions of transients discovered to make generation-defining cosmological measurements.

    Location: Disque Hall 919, 32 South 32nd Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104
    Time: 3:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Bharat Ratra, Kansas State University

    Description: Experiments and observations over the last two decades have provided strong support for a "standard" model of cosmology that describes the evolution of the universe from an early epoch of inflation to the complex hierarchy of structure seen today. I review the basic physics, astronomy, and history of ideas on which this model is based. I describe the data which persuade cosmologists that (as yet undetected) dark energy and dark matter are by far the main components of the energy budget of the universe. I conclude with a list of open cosmological questions.

    “The New Horizons Exploration of Pluto”

    Location: Princeton University, Peyton Hall Auditorium, Room 145
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Tod Lauer, National Optical Astronomy Observatory
    Note: Coffee and refreshments are available from 10:15 am in Peyton Hall Common Room.

    Description: The NASA New Horizons spacecraft provided the first close look at Pluto, its moons, and environment during its close flyby in 2015. Pluto was shown to be a complex active planet with a variegated surface exhibiting heterogeneous geological processes. Over all, Pluto is a differentiated body with a rocky core, an extensive mantle of water-ice, and a significant atmosphere. On Pluto water-ice serves the structural role that silicate minerals serve on earth, supporting a surprisingly rugged topography of mountains, valleys, and rifts. Nitrogen, in contrast plays the role of water-ice on the earth, forming glaciers, and filling an ocean-sized basin. Internal radiogenic heat drives slow convection in the nitrogen sea and likely supports a global sub-surface water ocean. Variation in insolation over the Plutonian year interacts with the atmosphere to transport cryogenic ices over large distances. The atmosphere, itself is hazy, due to complex organic compounds formed by solar UV acting on nitrogen and methane. In contrast, Pluto’s large moon Charon lacks volatiles and signs of present activity, but does show fossil evidence of a now-frozen sub-surface ocean. The talk will explore these topics and more with extensive use of New Horizons imagery and 3D-topographic maps derived from the images (anaglyph glasses will be provided).

I will show how I have used this effect to probe the abundance of ionized gas in and around modern-day galaxies and thereby resolve the long-standing "missing baryon . I will conclude with a look ahead to such measurements with the Advanced Atacama Cosmology Telescope and Simons Observatory, which will measure CMB anisotropies secondary - and search for primordial waves gravitational - with unprecedented sensitivity.

    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: One of the single most important questions in astrophysics is how planets and planetary systems are born out of their parent protoplanetary disks. With parallel advances in computational astrophysics and observational capabilities, now is the quintessential time for unraveling the mysteries of planet formation. In this talk, I will present my vision for combining observational and theoretical tools to determine how planetary systems form. I will begin by describing how a new generation of simulations of protoplanetary disk dynamics has led to a paradigm shift in disk evolution and how we are using observations with ALMA to test and refine this paradigm. I will then discuss theoretical work on the formation of planetesimals within the gas disk environment implied by observations and how the predicted properties of these planetesimals compare with those observed in the asteroid and Kuiper Belt populations. I will conclude with an outlook for protoplanetary disk and planet formation studies, including future efforts to use dynamical models of planet formation to explain the wide variety of exoplanet systems that we observe.

    “Forging the Heaviest Elements”

    Location: Serin Hall, Room 401
    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Rebecca Surman, University of Notre Dame
    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: The origin of the heaviest elements has long been one of the greatest mysteries of nuclear astrophysics. The only known means to synthesize nuclei up to uranium and thorium is rapid neutron capture, or r-process, nucleosynthesis, and exactly where and how the r-process occurs has remained uncertain for decades. Recently disparate lines of evidence---from astronomical observations, modeling of galactic chemical evolution and individual astrophysical events, neutrino and nuclear experiment and theory, and gravitational wave detections---appear to be converging on a preferred site of production: neutron star mergers. Here we will review the available evidence and discuss the role nuclear physics can play in a definitive resolution to this mystery.
