Institute for Advanced Study Astrophysics Seminar

Stellar Basins
Ken Van Tilburg
11:00am|Bloomberg Lecture Hall and Zoom

I will describe the phenomenology of stellar basins: volumetric stellar emission into gravitationally bound orbits of weakly coupled particles such as axions, moduli, hidden photons, and fermions. While only a tiny fraction of the instantaneous...

Joint IAS/Princeton University Number Theory Seminar

Branching laws: homological aspects
4:30pm|Simonyi 101 and Remote Access

This lecture will partly survey branching laws for real and p-adic groups which often is related to period integrals of automorphic representations, discuss some of the more recent developments, focusing attention on homological aspects and the...

Joint Princeton University Gravity Group/Gravity Initiative Seminar

Gravitational Wave Astronomy: Where we are at, and What’s next
Neil Cornish
12:00pm|Princeton University, Jadwin Hall, Princeton Gravity Initiative, 4th Floor, & Zoom

Abstract: Following the first detection of a binary black hole merger in 2015, the number of gravitational wave events has grown to almost one hundred, including binary neutron star mergers and mixed black hole, neutron star mergers. Going forward...
