Institute for Advanced Study Astrophysics Seminar

Probing magnetic field direction and strength in interstellar medium, galactic center and clusters of galaxies
Alex Lazarian
11:00am|Bloomberg Lecture Hall and Zoom

Understanding of the role magnetic field in astrophysical environments is essential for many brunches of astrophysical research. The knowledge of magnetic field and polarized radiation that this field induces is important for the ongoing search for...

Rutgers University Astrophysics Seminar

Simulating Structure and Galaxy Formation
Mark Vogelsberger
1:30pm|Virtual Meeting

Cosmological simulations of galaxy formation have evolved significantly over the last decade. In my talk I will describe recent efforts to model the large-scale distribution of galaxies with cosmological hydrodynamical simulations. After...

Joint IAS/Princeton/Montreal/Paris/Tel-Aviv Symplectic Geometry Zoominar

Big fiber theorems and ideal-valued measures in symplectic topology
Yaniv Ganor
9:15am|Remote Access

In various areas of mathematics there exist "big fiber theorems", these are theorems of the following type: "For any map in a certain class, there exists a 'big' fiber", where the class of maps and the notion of size changes from case to case.

We...

Princeton University Astroplasmas Seminar

Topic 1: Relativistic shock wave hydrodynamics and breakout Topic 2: Accretion onto spinning supermassive binary black holes approaching merger
Tamar Faran and Luciano Combi
12:30pm|Dome Room, Peyton Hall or Zoom

Abstract 1: Observations show evidence for the existence of relativistic shock waves in various extreme astrophysical environments, such as gamma-ray bursts and the outflows of binary neutron star mergers. Detailed theoretical models for shock wave...
