Multiwavelength Probes of Galactic Atmospheres
25 Jan 2021 - 28 Jan 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The circumgalactic medium (CGM) can be viewed as an atmosphere that surrounds a galaxy and sustains star formation within it. Much of what we know about the CGM has come from absorption-line spectroscopy, mainly in the UV band, of gas at temperatures below the galaxy's virial temperature. A comparable amount of hotter gas, closer to the virial temperature, may also be present but has been harder to detect. If it is there, then the properties of the cooler clouds and the hotter ambient medium are likely to be complementary, deeply interwoven, and physically complex. It follows that the physics of cosmic rays, magnetic fields, turbulent mixing layers, conductive interfaces, and shocks may then play a leading role in setting the fate of the multiphase CGM. This conference will examine the evidence for a virial-temperature component along with the observations capable of revealing its properties and its relationship to the cooler components. Probes that complement UV absorption-line observations will be emphasized, including X-ray emission and absorption, UV and optical emission, Sunyaev-Zel'dovich probes, Fast Radio Bursts, and signposts of non-thermal particle acceleration.

Astrostatistics in Canada and Beyond
28 Feb 2021 - 05 Mar 2021 • Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS)
Abstract:
What could be a bigger source of "big data" than the entire Universe? Researchers in statistics and computer science are developing new methods to analyse the "big data" that companies and governments want to understand. To test out these methods they need big datasets that everyone can share - and new astronomical telescopes just happen to be gearing up to generate observations of billions of stars and galaxies that fit the bill. Insights from statistics will help astrophysicists to get the most out of these observations. The Astrostatistics 2021 workshop will bring together statisticians and astrophysicists to learn the technical languages of the two fields and identify how to work together to combine the excitement of space with big data.

White Dwarfs from Physics to Astrophysics
29 Mar 2021 - 01 Apr 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Astrometric, photometric and spectroscopic all-sky surveys provide the first complete, unbiased view of the Galactic population of the most abundant type of stellar remnants: white dwarfs. This wealth of observational data provides an array of opportunities to use white dwarfs as probes of a wide range of astrophysics, including the formation and evolution of stars and planets, the star formation rate of the Galaxy, and the populations of low-frequency gravitational wave sources and progenitors of thermonuclear supernovae. These applications require improved models of these electron-degenerate stars, which in turn rely on developments in the relevant input physics, including equations of state and opacities. This conference will provide a joint platform for experts in the observational and theoretical study of white dwarfs, scientists working on the underlying fundamental physics, and astronomers using white dwarfs as diagnostic tools to gain a panoramic overview of the state-of-the-art, to identify remaining limitations of the current models, and to explore novel scientific opportunities arising from the new data.

White Dwarfs as Cosmic Laboratories
10 Apr 2021 • online, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The vast majority of stars in our galaxy will eventually stop burning nuclear fuel and slowly cool as very dense spheres of gas, with radii of only ~7000 km (similar to Earth's radius). These “white dwarfs” (WDs) are the most common endpoint of stellar evolution. They play a central role in many areas of astrophysics, ranging from the study of exoplanets to thermonuclear supernovae, the type of explosions used to measure the expansion rate of our Universe. Recent observational probes by the Gaia, Kepler, and TESS satellites have gifted the astrophysics community with an incredibly rich dataset that is propelling our understanding of these objects. Old questions have been answered and new puzzles have emerged. How do these objects cool? Are their interiors liquid or solid? What happens when two WDs merge? Which planets survive the metamorphosis of their host stars into WDs? In this conference, we will answer some of these questions and explore ways to bring this exciting new astrophysics to the classroom.

AwRI2021 — Astronomy with Radioactive Isotopes
31 May 2021 - 03 Jun 2021 • Budapest, Hungary
Organizer:
Konkoly Observatory
Abstract:
Radioactive nuclei play a significant role in many current astrophysical pursuits, from the origin of the elements to the driving of emissions from supernovae (56Ni) and kilonovae (r-process radioactivity). Radioactive nuclei are crucial for direct studies of galactic enrichment (7Be, 26Al, 44Ti, 60Fe, 99Tc, 244Pu) and stellar explosions (56Ni, 44Ti). Stars and their explosions, galaxies and their evolving interstellar medium, and the origin of the solar system are among the targeted astrophysical objects. Stardust, meteorites, ocean floor deposits, cosmic-rays, and gamma-ray spectroscopy provide a rich variety of astronomy to exploit the inherent power of radioactivity. Investigation tools range from numerical models, astronomical instrumentation, and laboratory experiments to derive material compositions and nuclear reaction rates. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from all these different fields to promote interaction through the common ground of radioactivity.

Star Formation: From Clouds to Discs. A Tribute to the Career of Lee Hartmann
16 Aug 2021 - 19 Aug 2021 • Malahide, Ireland
Organizer:
Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies, Ireland
Abstract:
This conference will celebrate the career of Lee Hartmann, who has made enormous contributions to our field during his productive life. For over 3 decades Lee has been a leading pioneer in characterizing the physics of molecular clouds, stars and planet formation. His scientific breadth and impact can be seen in his studies on molecular cloud formation and cloud lifetimes. This has led to a change in our paradigm of star formation towards more rapid evolution. He has been among the first to recognize the importance of accretion and magnetic fields in the phenomena observed in young stars, and has led ground-breaking efforts characterizing these effects. As a tribute to Lee, but also recognizing that we stand on the threshold of a new era with the arrival of JWST, E-ELT and SKA, it is appropriate to take stock of the most fascinating developments in our field, emphasizing those areas where Lee has made significant contributions.

Building Bridges: Towards a Unified Picture of Stellar and Black Hole Binary Accretion and Evolution
14 Mar 2022 - 17 Mar 2022 • Santa Barbara, United States
Organizer:
UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
Binary systems are ubiquitous in nature, from stars to the supermassive black holes expected to reside in galactic nuclei. In many circumstances, the binary system is enveloped by circumbinary gas. How does circumbinary gas evolve and influence the embedded binary? What observational signatures of this gas are most informative? What novel numerical techniques must we deploy to better model these systems? This conference will bring together two distinct communities: those working on massive black hole binaries with those working on stellar binaries. Because recent years have seen remarkable progress in observations of stellar binaries, and numerical modeling of both stars and black holes, now is the ideal time to bring together these two groups. The conference will highlight the remarkable similarities of problems at such varied astrophysical scales, and shed light on the crucial next steps for pushing the boundaries of our knowledge.

UC Santa Barbara, Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Abstract:
The detection of gravitational waves by Advanced LIGO/Virgo has opened a new frontier in physics, with impact on areas ranging from field theory through stellar evolution and cosmology. It has also seeded new connections between theoretical communities, especially between field theorists and classical relativists. An even brighter future lies ahead, with more sensitive ground-based detectors and, eventually, a space-based observatory. Current and future experiments demand precision modelling of gravitational-wave signals in order to interpret the strongest gravitational-wave events and to enable sensitive searches for new physics which may be embedded in these signals. The conference will bring together experts from three communities: classical relativity, effective field theory, and scattering amplitudes. Building on the current state of the art, we will discuss the needs of the next generation of gravitational-wave experiments; identify which challenges theory must overcome; highlight recent advances in gravitational wave modelling for more detailed study; and uncover the most promising emerging tools and techniques from classical and quantum field theory for further development.
