Astrophysics Calendar

The calendar is a collection of events hosted by The Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton University, and other local institutions and groups focused on Astrophysics and Astronomy. Emails are sent out every Friday with the calendar for the upcoming week and daily emails are sent with each days events. If you are interested in being added to the calendar distribution list, please contact Amanda Cenker, Academic Assistant at IAS.

Princeton University Star Formation/ISM Rendezvous (SFIR)

Understanding the Schmidt-Kennicutt relation: the crucial role of large-scale turbulent driving
Noe Brucy
11:00am|Virtual Meeting

What regulates star formation and how to explain the Schmidt-Kennicutt relation is a longstanding issue. In this talk, I’ll present simulations of a kiloparsec cube section of a galaxy that show that stellar feedback is sufficient to explain...

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...

Princeton University Astrophysics Special Seminar

5 Principles of Physics-based Machine Learning
Peter Melchior
3:00pm|145 Peyton Hall or Zoom

Astrophysics and several other scientific disciplines currently experience the confluence of three separate developments: large observational programs provide more data than ever; massive simulations probe ever more complex phenomena; and rapid...

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...

Princeton University Galread [Galactic/Extragalactic Reading Group]

TBA
Claire Ye
11:00am|Virtual Meeting

Each week, we hold a relatively informal seminar/discussion series 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...
