    Drexel University Physics Colloquium - 19th Annual Kaczmarczik Lecture
    “Click: The 3D Universe”

    Location: Main Building Auditorium (32nd and Chestnut Streets), Philadelphia, PA 19104) - NOTE LOCATION
    Time: 2:00 PM
    Speaker(s): Margaret J. Geller, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
    Note: Online registration is requested at their website.

    Description: We live in the first time when it is possible to map the universe. We now know that galaxies like our own Milky Way trace the largest patterns in nature. These patterns, first seen in a slice of the universe in 1986, extend for hundreds of millions of light years. Now with large telescopes, we can trace the evolution of these patterns and compare them with some of the world's largest computer simulations. A new survey, HectoMAP shows us the patterns in the universe nearly 7 billion years ago. A HectoMAP movie takes us through the data. Comparison of HectoMAP observations with simulations provides new direct tests of our understanding of the evolution of structure in the universe. OPEN HOUSE: Preceding the Lecture, the Department of Physics will hold an Open House consisting of exciting science demonstrations and exhibits with brief presentations on biophysics, astrophysics, computational physics, condensed matter physics, among others. You will have the opportunity to tour some labs and refreshments will be served. All events are free and open to the public.

    Rutgers University Physics/Astronomy Colloquium
    “Precision Measurements with Spin-polarized Gases”

    Location: Physics Lecture Hall
    Time: 4:45 PM
    Speaker(s): Michael Romalis, Princeton University
    Note: Tea served at 4:30 pm

    Description: Spin-polarized gases provide a powerful tool for precision measurements because they typically contain a large number of atoms with a long spin coherence time. They are used for sensitive measurements of magnetic fields as well as other types of interactions that couple to particle spin. I will describe recent advances in the precision of these measurements that allow us to detect very small magnetic fields and enable new applications, for example recording of magnetic fields generated by the brain. Spin-polarized ensembles are also sensitive to several types of interactions beyond the Standard Model, for example, long-range spin-dependent forces and spatial anisotropy due to violation of local Lorentz invariance. To search for such effects, we have installed a sensitive spin sensor at the South Pole, which is a preferred location for such experiments due to alignment of the Earth's rotation direction and the gravity direction.

    Institute for Advanced Study Informal Astrophysics Seminar
    “The POLARBEAR Experiment: First Season Results on Sub-degree Scales and Future Plans”

    Location: Bloomberg Hall, Astrophysics Library
    Time: 11:00 AM
    Speaker(s): Zigmund Kermish, Princeton University

    Description: POLARBEAR is a millimeter wave polarimeter operating from 5,200 meters in the Atacama Desert of northern Chile. The instrument's 3.5 arcminute beam enables measurements of the polarized cosmic microwave background (CMB) lensing signal. After briefly reviewing the instrument, I present results from our first season of observations, including the first measurements of the B-mode polarization power spectrum. I conclude by outlining future plans for the POLARBEAR experiment and the next generation POLARBEAR-2 and Simons Array experiments.

    Rutgers University Astrophysics Seminar
    “The Effect of Feedback on Galaxy Growth, Disc Formation, and R-process Enrichment in Cosmological Simulations”

    Location: Serin Hall, Room 401
    Time: 1:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Freeke van de Voort, University of California, Berkeley
    Note: Refreshments to follow in room 332W.

    Description: Galaxies grow through gas accretion of diffuse and filamentary gas and through mergers with various mass ratios. This growth is regulated by feedback from massive stars and black holes. I will discuss the gas accretion rate onto haloes and their central galaxies computed in cosmological, hydrodynamical simulations. Accretion rates onto galaxies are determined by radiative cooling and by outflows as well as by their halo mass. In massive galaxies, AGN feedback lowers the galaxy's gas accretion rate, which reduces the star formation rate. This results in quenched galaxies that acquire most of their stellar mass through mergers rather than through in situ star formation below z=1, consistent with the inside-out growth found by observations. Galactic winds are necessary to reduce the star formation rate in Milky Way-like galaxies. However, these can be so violent that it becomes hard to maintain a gas disc, from which to form a stellar disc, for a sufficiently long time. I will show preliminary results from a zoom-in simulation of a Milky-Way mass galaxy with efficient feedback, which does form a stellar disc at low redshift. Additionally, I will show results for the metal enrichment of this galaxy. Specifically, the gas is enriched with iron by supernovae and with rapid neutron capture (r-process) elements by binary neutron star (NS) mergers. Simple calculations without structure formation and galactic winds 'proved' that NS mergers could not be the source of r-process elements. However, we predict there is a wide range of stellar r-process abundance ratios, with both supersolar and subsolar abundances. I will show that the abundances are reasonably consistent with observations and show that NS mergers could be the source of most of the r-process nuclei in the Universe.

    Location: Main Building Auditorium (32nd and Chestnut Streets), Philadelphia, PA 19104) - NOTE LOCATION
    Time: 3:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Scott Kenyon, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

    Description: In the last decade, observations with the Hubble Space telescope have revealed 4 small satellites orbiting the binary planet Pluto-Charon. After describing the basic system architecture, I will discuss a plausible path from the giant impact which produced Pluto-Charon to the formation of small satellites orbiting the binary. This path leads to several clear predictions for the system which the New Horizons mission will test during its 2015 flyby. To conclude, I will describe how Pluto-Charon provides a nearby laboratory for investigating the formation of planets around binary stars.

    Princeton University Princeton Center for Theoretical Science (PCTS) Workshop - Day 1
    “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.

    “Gamma-ray Bursts as Probes: From Relativistic Shocks to the High-redshift Universe”

    Location: Peyton Hall, Dome Room
    Time: 12:30 PM
    Speaker(s): Tanmoy Laskar, Harvard University

    Description: Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the most energetic explosions since the Big Bang, thus providing a unique opportunity to study the most extreme conditions in the Universe. At the same time, the large luminosities resulting from the interaction of the ejecta with their environment also makes these events premier probes of star-formation in galaxies out to the highest redshifts. I will highlight the versatility of GRBs through three related studies: i) using GRBs to measure the first galaxy mass-metallicity relation at 36 through afterglow observations and modelling, and iii) probing GRB shock physics through the first multi-wavelength detection and characterisation of the reverse shock. I will conclude with a discussion of future directions in the study of the GRB progenitors and their use as probes in the ALMA and JWST era.

    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.

    Speaker(s): Naoko Kurahashi Neilson, Drexel University

    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.

    Note: Tea served at 4:30 pm

    Description: Our recent measurements of new states in $^{12}$C allow the study the Rotation-Vibration spectrum of $^{12}$C from which evidence for a new (${\cal D}_{3h}$) geometrical symmetry emerges within the Algebraic Cluster Model (ACM). The data fit very well to the predicted (ground state) rotational band of an oblate equilateral triangular spinning top with a ${\cal D}_{3h}$ symmetry characterized by the sequence of states: $0^+, 2^+, 3^-, 4^\pm, 5^-$ with almost degenerate $4^+$ and $4^-$ (parity doublet) states. The ACM appears to open a new chapter in cluster physics of light nuclei and it presents an opportunity for further experimental investigation of light nuclei.

    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.

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.

    “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.

    Description: M giant stars offer our best opportunity to explore the outer reaches of the Galactic halo with today's modern wide-field surveys. 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.

    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. I will introduce the Daya Bay experiment which observed for the first time the neutrino mixing angle θ13 with a statistical significance of 5.2 σ. 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.

    Institute for Advanced Study/Princeton University Joint Astrophysics Colloquium
    “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.
