3 Talks: Black Hole, Neutron Star and Star formation (Drs. Shuo Zhang, Rana Ezzeddine, Moritz Guenther, MKI)

Learn about supermassive black hole, R process of neutron star and star formation! The Glorious Past of Our Monster Black Hole Dr. Shuo Zhang, 1:00 – 1:30pm in 37-252 The…

Researchers identify one of the earliest stars in the universe

As the Big Bang’s name suggests, the universe burst into formation from an immense explosion, creating a vast soup of particles. Gigantic clouds of primordial soup, made mainly…

The Star-Forming Properties of an Ultra-Hard X-ray Selected Sample of AGN (speaker: Taro Shimizu, University of Maryland)

properties of AGN hosts both in the star formation rate (SFR) and the location of the star formation. While the observed scaling relations between galaxies and the supermassive black holes…

Structure across the star formation sequence over the last 11 billion years (Speaker: Kate Whitaker, GSFC)

Abstract: A wealth of data from deep extragalactic surveys have revealed a picture where star-forming galaxies follow a relatively tight relation between star formation rate and stellar mass. This observed…

The Role of Stellar Feedback in Star Cluster Formation (Speaker: Mike Grudic, CalTech)

Abstract:Most star formation in the local Universe occurs in a clustered configuration, however the fraction of stars that remain in long-lived, gravitationally bound clusters appears to vary with galactic environment….

Self-regulated Star Formation: From Radiation-Dominated Clouds to Supernova-dominated Galaxies (Speaker: Eve Ostriker, Princeton)

…gravitational collapse primarily by turbulence. Losses from turbulent dissipation and radiation must be constantly replenished to prevent runaway star formation. Yet, star formation itself is crucial to maintaining the ISM’s…

Two Talks! Speakers: Anna Rosen (UCSC) and Andrew Battisti (UMass)

…onto massive stars and limit star formation in massive star clusters (MSCs), which can host thousands of massive stars. For stellar winds, I discuss how we can use observations to…

Why isn’t the universe as bright as it should be?

…of galaxies may regulate star formation. They describe their framework this week in the journal Nature. When intracluster gas cools rapidly, it condenses, then collapses to form new stars. Scientists…

Fuelling mechanisms and star formation in low redshift AGN (Sara Ellison, University of Victoria)

…merger sample. Finally, I will discuss the levels star formation in AGN hosts – another controversial topic in recent years. Using artificial neural networks to predict the IR luminosity of…

Tracing the Cosmic Shutdown of Star Formation in Massive Galaxies (speaker: Kate Whitaker, UMass Amherst and University of Connecticut)

…forming stars. The physical mechanisms responsible for shutting down star formation and the subsequent buildup of this quiescent population at such early times is one of the most outstanding questions…
