Gravitational probes of dark matter

December 7, 2018
From 10:30 until 12:00

Aurel Schneider (ETH Zurich)   I will discuss the most promising gravitational probes to constrain non-cold or collisional dark matter scenarios. This includes dwarf galaxy statistics, weak...[more]

The Galactic Disk in Action Space as seen by Gaia

November 30, 2018
From 10:30 until 12:00

Wilma Trick MPA Garching   The second Gaia data release from April 2018 has revealed an astounding amount of non-axisymmetric stellar substructure in the Milky Way. In this talk, I will present...[more]

November 23, 2018
From 10:30 until 12:00

Max Gronke UC Santa Barbara   Galactic winds are large-scale, multiphase outflows from galaxies and crucial for the galactic ecosystem. They are, thus, a potent probe for the underlying feedback...[more]

Galactic archaeology: Unravelling drivers of galaxy evolution with the Milky Way

October 19, 2018
From 10:30 until 12:00

Payel Das Oxford   Galaxy evolution seeks to understand how the featureless groups of stars in the early Universe metamorphosed into the diverse range of morphologies that can be observed today....[more]

X-raying nearby supernova remnants

October 12, 2018
From 10:30 until 12:00
