The 35th Annual New Mexico Symposium
21 fév 2020 • Socorro, NM, États-Unis
Organisateur:
National Radio Astronomy Observatory
Résumé:
Dark skies and remote sites have attracted world-class astronomical facilities to the Southwest and supported a wide range of research since the mid-1900s. Regional achievements span areas in both science and technology including optical and radio interferometry, as well as new understanding of solar physics, planetary science, star and galaxy formation and evolution, and the creation and evolution of our universe. To support the network of scientific research in the Southwest and encourage interdisciplinary discussions, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) and New Mexico Tech are sponsoring the 35th Annual New Mexico Symposium on Friday, 21 February 2020, at the NRAO Science Operations Center (SOC) in Socorro, NM.

Accurate Flux Calibration for 21st Century Astrophysics
17 mar 2020 - 19 mar 2020 • Baltimore, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)
Résumé:
Whenever an observation of an astrophysical source must be converted from instrumental values to physical units, we use flux calibration. As new questions are formulated and new capabilities become available, the requirements on the precision and accuracy of flux calibration increase. Once upon a time, 10% was considered good enough, but today, 1% is demanded, which advances in technology and computation power now enable. This workshop addresses current issues in flux calibration for the new generation of telescopes and for multi-wavelength science. In addition, the workshop honors Ralph Bohlin's seminal contributions over 40 years, particularly the development of CALSPEC, the database of spectrophotometric standards used by much of the astronomical research community.

Uncovering the Physics of Formation of Globular Clusters and their Host Galaxies
11 mai 2020 - 14 mai 2020 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Résumé:
This conference will synthesize recent observational discoveries of massive star clusters in nearby galaxies and the high-redshift universe. It will connect the observations to theoretical modeling of galaxy formation on large scales and star formation on small scales. The topics for discussion will include the efficiency of star cluster formation as a function of environment, and the origins of the cluster age and metallicity distributions. The meeting will aim to highlight the similarities and differences in star formation in low-redshift and high-redshift galaxies.

Taking the Temperature: Statistical Nuclear Physics for Astrophysics and Applications
13 jul 2020 - 16 jul 2020 • Athens, Ohio, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Ohio University in Athens
Résumé:
Statistical estimates of nuclear reaction rates are essential ingredients for astrophysical model calculations, e.g. r-process nucleosynthesis in neutron star mergers, and nuclear applications, e.g. next generation nuclear reactor performance. Rate calculations require experimental or theoretical constraints for nuclear properties such as level densities (temperature), gamma-strength functions, particle optical potentials, and level spin distributions. Recently major advances have been made experimentally constraining the statistical properties of nuclei, particularly off the valley of beta-stability, while systematic studies have identified critical data needs for astrophysics and applications. As such, the time is ripe to “take the temperature” of the field of statistical nuclear physics to share recent advances and promising opportunities.

Multiwavelength Probes of Galactic Atmospheres
25 jan 2021 - 28 jan 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Résumé:
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.

White Dwarfs from Physics to Astrophysics
29 mar 2021 - 01 avr 2021 • UC Santa Barbara, États-Unis
Organisateur:
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics (KITP)
Résumé:
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.
