Princeton University Galread [Galactic/Extragalactic Reading Group]

The mass profiles of dwarf galaxies from Dark Energy Survey lensing
Joseph Thornton
11:00am|Zoom and Peyton Hall, Grand Central

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...

Princeton University Gravity Initiative Seminar Series

Learning more from Teukolsky’s radial equation for quasi-normal modes
Lionel London
12:30pm|Princeton University, Jadwin Hall, Princeton Gravity Initiative, 4th Floor

Abstract:  Although solutions to Teukolsky’s radial equation play a key role in black hole perturbation theory, there are limitations in our understanding that obscure our practical use of e.g. quasi-normal mode overtone solutions. Towards...

Institute for Advanced Study / Princeton University Joint Astrophysics Colloquium

A Golden Age of Asteroseismology with Kepler and TESS
Tim Bedding
11:00am|Peyton Hall Auditorium

Asteroseismology uses the natural oscillation modes of stars to study their interiors. The wonderfully precise measurements by NASA's Kepler and TESS missions are ideal data sources for the technique. These space telescopes have been monitoring the...

Institute for Advanced Study Astrophysics Seminar

Micromirror confinement of sub-TeV cosmic rays in galaxy clusters
Patrick Reichherzer
11:00am|Bloomberg Lecture Hall

Recent observations reveal that cosmic rays (CRs) are more tightly confined in various astrophysical systems (e.g. radio bubbles) than current theories predict. I show that microscale magnetic fluctuations, particularly from the mirror instability...

Princeton University Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Seminar Series

2030STEM: A Project to Accelerate a More Diverse STEM Workforce
Jackie Faherty
2:00pm|Jadwin Hall, PCTS 407 seminar room (4th floor)

The 2030STEM project was created in 2020 as a response to the call to action which happened surrounding the death of George Floyd. With an award from the Alfred P Sloan Foundation as well as the Heising Simons Foundation, our team of co-founders...
