    Princeton University Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS) Workshop - Day 2
    “Open Questions in String Cosmology and Inflation”

    Location: Jadwin Hall, 4th Floor, PCTS Seminar Room, Rm. 407
    Time: 9:00 AM
    Speaker(s): See website for program.
    Note: PCTS programs do not have a registration fee, unless otherwise noted, however, online registration for participation is required.

    Description: The workshop will bring together string theorists and cosmologists to discuss central outstanding challenges in our understanding of Big Bang cosmology and the connection between CMB observations and fundamental theory. Potential future discoveries, such as the detection of B mode polarization of CMB anisotropies, would provide a direct experimental window into physics close to the Planck scale, and thereby put powerful constraints on attempts to realize inflation in string theory. Any model which can account for a detectable signal of primordial gravitational waves will not be able to parametrically isolate stringy effects from inflation, so it will have to rely on innovative dynamical mechanisms for theoretical control. We believe the time is right for a serious top-down look at this problem. Besides a small number of overview talks, the workshop will consist of organized discussion sessions on a number of key questions. Workshop organizers: Daniel Harlow and Herman Verlinde.

    Princeton University/Institute for Advanced Study Early Universe/Cosmology Lunch Discussion
    “Cosmological Simulations of Galaxy Cluster Outskirts”

    Location: Institute for Advanced Study, West Building, West Seminar Room
    Time: 12:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Camille Avestruz, Yale University

    Description: ABSTRACT: "The observational study of galaxy cluster outskirts is a new territory to probe the thermodynamic and chemical structure of the X-ray emitting intracluster medium (ICM). Cluster outskirts are particularly important for modeling the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect, which is sensitive to hot electrons at all radii and has been used to detect hundreds of galaxy clusters with recent microwave cluster surveys. In cluster-based cosmology, measurements of cluster outskirts are an important avenue for estimating the cluster mass, as the outskirts are less sensitive to baryonic processes that dominate the cluster core. However, recent observations of cluster outskirts deviate from theoretical expectations, indicating that cluster outskirts are more complicated than previously thought. Computational modeling of cluster outskirts is necessary to interpret these observations. I will present cosmological simulations of galaxy cluster formation that follow the thermodynamic and chemical structures in the virialization regions of the ICM and transition to the IGM. Specifically, I will discuss how observational signatures of galaxy clusters are affected by gas flows, inhomogeneities in the ICM, and non-equilibrium physics." Organizers are David Spergel, Princeton University, and Matias Zaldarriaga, Institute for Advanced Study. The lunch will be held at either Princeton University or the Institute for Advanced Study. Check the calendar for the meeting location. This week's meeting is at the Institute for Advanced Study. Attendees can bring their own lunch or stop at the IAS Dining Hall. The West Seminar room is in a building which is a short walk from the main dining area.

  • Tuesday, October 28, 2014
    Institute for Advanced Study/Princeton University Joint Astrophysics Colloquium
    “Intrinsic Galaxy Alignments and the Cosmic Web”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall Lecture Hall
    Time: 10:45 AM
    Speaker(s): Rachel Mandelbaum, Carnegie Mellon University
    Note: Coffee and refreshments are available from 10:15 am in the Bloomberg Hall Commons Room.

    Description: Intrinsic alignments of galaxy shapes with cosmological large-scale structure include a great deal of information about galaxy formation and evolution in a cosmological context, while also serving as a contaminant to weak gravitational lensing measurements (which assume that all coherent galaxy alignments are due to gravitational lensing).  In this talk, I will discuss recent progress in our understanding of galaxy intrinsic alignments on both the observational side and the computational side, using SDSS-III BOSS data and SPH simulations, respectively.  Recent work using massive BOSS galaxies has permitted a study of how galaxy intrinsic alignments vary from small scales (within massive halos) to cosmological scales, and how the level of the alignments scales with the galaxy environment (for brightest group galaxies, satellites in groups, and field galaxies).  Among these new observational results is the fact that the level of small-scale alignments (<1 Mpc/h) correlates more tightly with the large-scale galaxy bias (from >10 Mpc/h) than with the galaxy luminosity.  On the computational side, high-resolution SPH simulations with 100 Mpc/h box sizes are able to make predictions for how galaxy intrinsic alignments scale with galaxy properties, as well as to make verifiable predictions for the intrinsic alignment 2-point correlation functions of massive galaxies that are observed by existing galaxy redshift surveys.  I will discuss challenges for using and interpreting simulated intrinsic alignment signals, and the latest results for their comparison with observations, as well as the implications for future weak lensing surveys.

    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Naoko Kurahashi Neilson, Drexel University
    Note: Start time is 1:30 pm.

    Description: The IceCube Neutrino Observatory has recently discovered a diffuse flux of astrophysical neutrinos, neutrinos from beyond the solar system. But how does one collect neutrinos at the South Pole? Why study neutrinos for astronomy? In this talk, I will try to answer such questions and show nice pictures from Antarctica. I will also discuss the multiple diffuse flux analyses in IceCube that observe the astrophysical flux, and what each can tell us. Spatial analyses that aim to identify the sources of such astrophysical neutrinos will also be discussed, followed by an attempt to reconcile all results, to draw a coherent picture that is the state of neutrino astronomy.

    Speaker(s): Moshe Gai, University of Connecticut
    Note: Tea served at 4:30 pm

    Description: The Hoyle state, without which we will not exist, has been used (in the anthropic view of the universe) to constrain the light quark mass and the strength of the electromagnetic interaction within the frame of effective field theory calculation on the lattice. But what is the structure of the Hoyle state? After a short tutorial in elementary nuclear physics and elementary astrophysics we will recall even more elementary symmetry principles that will allow us to tackle this question. Major progress has been achieved by challenging experiments, but we await results of crucial measurements.

    “Shedding Light on Planet-Disk Interactions”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall, Astrophysics Library
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Dave Tsang, McGill University

    Description: The new era of exoplanetary discovery has begun to allow a statistical understanding of planetary distributions to inform our knowledge of planet formation and migration. These data now allow us to start inferring the relative importance of various dynamical processes. I will discuss a few features of these emerging statistical distributions, and possible mechanisms to produce such features, focussing particularly on disk-planet interactions. I will discuss how wave resonance may affect the distribution of close-in planets, as well as how the "Eccentricity Valley" in the exoplanet distribution around metal-poor stars may be a signature of an eccentricity excitation process related to stellar insolation of giant planets.

    Princeton University Thunch Talk
    “Coupling Growing Black Holes to Their Host Galaxies and Dark Matter Halos”

    Location: Peyton Hall, Room 33 (basement)
    Time: 12:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Andy Goulding, Princeton University

    Description: It is now well established that rapidly accreting supermassive black holes, in the form of active galactic nuclei (AGN), are capable of releasing enormous quantities of energy, often comparable to the binding energy of a massive galaxy. Indeed, the feedback processes that couple the growth of black holes and their host galaxies are now necessary ingredients in galaxy evolution models, not only to regulate the growth of the black hole, but also influence the host galaxy and the wider environment. However, little is still known about what drives the growth of black holes and how, where and when the interactions between an AGN and their small and large-scale environment occur. An outstanding observational problem is that the majority of black holes are hidden from our line of sight by obscuring gas and dust. This often requires information from across the electromagnetic spectrum in order to disentangle the galaxy and AGN properties. In this talk, I will discuss recent efforts, combining vast quantities of multiwavelength data, to provide new constraints on the demographics of hidden AGN near and far, the nature of the obscuring media, and further unveil the symbiosis of growing black holes with their host galaxies and dark matter halos.

    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Feryal Ozel, University of Arizona
    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: There has been tremendous progress in the past few years on the measurements of masses of neutron stars and black holes in our Galaxy. In this talk, I will discuss how applying statistical techniques on the new data reveals the evolution of these compact objects and the dividing line between them, while raising questions about our understanding of the supernova mechanism. I will then present our recent measurements of the radii of neutron stars and a new formalism by which these measurements can be used to study the neutron star interior. I will finally show how the combination of the tightly constrained radii and the discovery of a two solar mass pulsar has allowed for the first astrophysical inference of the pressure of cold matter above nuclear saturation density.

    “Diffusive Shock Acceleration of Cosmic-ray Protons and Electrons in Non-relativistic Strong Shocks”

    Location: Peyton Hall, Dome Room
    Time: 12:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Jaehong Park, Princeton University

    Description: Diffusive shock acceleration (DSA) for both cosmic-ray protons and electrons is studied in non-relativistic high Mach number quasi-parallel collisionless shocks using 1D particle-in-cell simulations. Both species are found to develop power-law distributions with spectral index -4 in the momentum space, in agreement to the prediction of DSA. The right-handed circularly polarized waves excited by the non-resonant hybrid instability (Bell instability) are observed in the upstream. Protons get injected into DSA after a few gyro-cycles of shock drift acceleration (SDA), while electrons are energized via SDA first, re-energized via ``multiple SDA cycles" mediated by the interaction with upstream Bell waves, and eventually injected into DSA. Finally, the cosmic-ray electron-to-proton ratio is calculated for the first time in kinetic simulations of non-relativistic strong shocks.

    Institute for Advanced Study/Princeton University Joint Astrophysics Colloquium
    “Think Globally, Act Locally: Physical Models of Galaxy Formation in a Cosmological Framework”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall Lecture Hall
    Time: 10:45 AM
    Speaker(s): Rachel Somerville, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
    Note: Coffee and refreshments are available from 10:15 am in the Bloomberg Hall Commons Room.

    Description: Galaxies mark the nexus between the "micro" scales of individual stars and black holes, and the "macro" scales of the "cosmic web", the large scale structure in which galaxies are embedded. Modeling the physics of galaxy formation is therefore one of the greatest challenges in astrophysics today because of the enormous range of scales involved and the diversity of physical processes that are important. However, models have made enormous progress in the past few years towards explaining a variety of observations and identifying a set of essential physical processes that shape the observable properties of galaxies. I will review the successes and some of the failures of state-of-the-art cosmological models of galaxy formation when confronted with an array of observations and discuss what we have learned from these results about the physics that drive galaxy evolution. I will focus on understanding the link between the structural and morphological properties of galaxies and their formation histories.

    “Exotic Atomic Nuclei: Probing Many-body Physics and the Origin of the Elements”

    Location: Physics Lecture Hall
    Time: 4:45 PM
    Speaker(s): Alexandra Gade, Michigan State University
    Note: Tea served at 4:30 pm

    Description: One goal of nuclear physics is a comprehensive understanding of the properties of nuclei from the interactions of the constituent protons and neutrons. This is of critical importance to address two fundamental challenges: Which combinations of protons and neutrons exist as bound systems and how are the elements synthesized in stars and their explosions? This quest for a reliable model of the atomic nucleus is at the brink of a revolution. The limits of nuclear existence can be mapped progressively with measurements of high sensitivity afforded by advances in accelerator and detector technology. An ever increasing range of short-lived nuclei (rare isotopes) becomes available for experiments that isolate specific features of the nuclear many-body problem. This is, for example, critical for astrophysical modeling. First, the models used to predict the properties and reactions of rare isotopes on the various nucleosynthesis paths finally become reliable; second, more and more of the short-lived astrophysical key nuclei and their reactions are in reach for measurements in the laboratory. This presentation will show how experiments today measure complementary observables that advance our understanding of nuclear science and what enormous opportunities will be opened up once the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) comes online at Michigan State University.

While challenging to distinguish from the overwhelming number of nearby dwarf stars, when identified, M giants are powerful tracers of the structural and kinematic properties of the Milky Way's halo. Using optical and near-infrared photometry from the SDSS and UKIDSS surveys, we have collected a sample of candidate M giants with estimated distances ranging from 30 to well over 200 kpc. I will report on our group's findings to date, which include the two most distant stars ever found in our Galaxy.

    Institute for Advanced Study/Princeton University Joint Astrophysics Colloquium
    “The Compositions of Small Planets”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall Lecture Hall
    Time: 10:45 AM
    Speaker(s): Dave Charbonneau, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
    Note: Coffee and refreshments are available from 10:15 am in the Bloomberg Hall Commons Room.

    Description: The NASA Kepler Mission has demonstrated that planets with radii larger than Earth yet smaller than Neptune are common around Sun-like stars. Although Kepler has determined the physical sizes of hundreds of such planets, we know virtually nothing about their masses and, by inference, their compositions. HARPS-N is an ultra-stable fiber-fed high-resolution spectrograph optimized for the measurement of very precise radial velocities. Using HARPS-N we have measured to high precision the masses of several of these so-called super-Earths. I will report on the resulting constraints on the planetary compositions, and address the transition from rocky planets, composed of rock and iron, and Neptune-like worlds, which have accreted and retained an envelope of primordial H/He gas. I will then explain the future role of the NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), scheduled for launch in 2017.

    Location: Serin Hall, Room 401
    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Andrew Hearin, Yale University
    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: In this talk, I review the basic physical picture of galaxy formation offered by empirical models connecting galaxies to the dark matter halos they live in. I show that many of the well-established trends in galaxy evolution can be understood through quite simple models of the galaxy-halo connection. I will give examples of how these simple models can be employed to constrain cosmological parameters, as well as how they inform more complex semi-analytical models of galaxy formation and state-of-the-art hydrodynamical simulations. However, recent observational and theoretical developments have revealed that the traditional approach to the galaxy-halo connection is too simplistic to reliably model observed trends in star-formation and quenching at low redshift. This inadequacy presents a new challenge both to the theory of large-scale structure, and to the precision cosmology program. I conclude by outlining a plan for the path towards a new generation of galaxy-halo models, so that we may reap the benefits of deep and wide-field galaxy surveys to robustly constrain cosmological parameters with measurements of large-scale structure, and to develop a more complete picture of galaxy evolution.

    Description: Recently reactor neutrino experiments have made important contributions to the neutrino oscillation.

The concept of the experiment, the detector construction and data analysis will be described. The next generation reactor neutrino experiment, JUNO, is about to start the construction in China. This experiment can determine the neutrino mass hierarchy and improve the precision of neutrino mixing parameters by one order of magnitude. It is also sensitive to supernova neutrinos, geoneutrinos and many others. I will also describe a new idea of neutrino beam for CP phase determination.

    “Incorporating Post-Newtonian Effects in N-body Dynamics”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall Lecture Hall
    Time: 10:45 AM
    Speaker(s): Clifford Will, University of Florida
    Note: Coffee and refreshments are available from 10:15 am in the Bloomberg Hall Commons Room.

    Description: The increasing role of general relativity in the dynamics of stellar systems with central massive black holes, in the generation of extreme mass-ratio inspirals, and in the evolution of hierarchical triple systems inspires a close examination of how post-Newtonian effects are incorporated into N-body dynamics.  Most approaches incorporate relativity by adding to the Newtonian N-body equations the standard two-body post-Newtonian terms for a given star around the black hole or for the close binary in a triple system.   We argue that, for calculating the evolution of such systems over timescales comparable to the relativistic pericenter advance timescale, it is essential to include ``cross terms'' in the equations of motion.  These are post-Newtonian terms that represent a coupling between the potential of the central black hole or the inner binary system and the potential due to the other star(s) in the system.  Over pericenter precession timescales, the effects of such terms can actually be ``boosted'' to amplitudes of Newtonian order.   We display the post-Newtonian N-body equations of motion including a central black hole in a truncated form that includes all the relevant cross terms, in a format ready to use for numerical implementation.   For hierarchical triple systems, we show explicitly the effects of cross terms on the orbit-averaged equations for the orbit elements of the inner binary for the special case where the third body is on a circular orbit, and present the results of numerical integrations of those equations.

We discuss recent papers from astro-ph and hear from the occasional exoplanet visitor. Graduate students are particularly encouraged to attend. The format will be informal and inclusive, spanning at a minimum exoplanets, the solar system, and astrobiology. Moreover, we plan on discussing multiple topics each time we meet, and not to tether a lunch to one organized presentation each sitting. The purpose is to foster wide-ranging and cross-fertilizing interaction and to keep the local community up to date on developments across the spectrum of associated activities. Joel Hartman and Tim Morton are the organizers.
