Princeton University Astroplasmas Seminar

December 10, 2021 | 12:30pm - 2:00pm

Relativistic plasmas are central to the study of black hole accretion, jet physics, neutron star mergers, and compact object magnetospheres. Going beyond common approaches used in the literature, I will describe a fully relativistic covariant 14...

Princeton University Thunch Talk

December 09, 2021 | 12:15pm - 1:15pm

I will present a review of how deep learning is used in astrophysics, and how this use is often misguided. I will introduce the term “scientific debt,” and argue that, though deep learning can quickly solve a complex problem, its success does not...

Institute for Advanced Study Astrophysics Seminar

December 09, 2021 | 11:00am - 12:00pm

In this talk, I will briefly discuss our work on understanding the 3D morphology of magnetic fields associated with molecular clouds. To study the 3D magnetic fields, we first proposed and demonstrated a new technique to determine the line-of-sight...
