ABOUT THE CALENDAR
Colloquium | March 10 | 4:15-5:30 p.m. | LeConte Hall, Room #1
Mark Raizen, Professor of Physics, University of Texas, Austin
We are developing new approaches to the control of atomic motion based on magnetic stopping of supersonic beams, and cooling with a one-way wall for atoms. I will discuss the impact of this work on other areas of science and technology.
Seminar: Cosmology Seminars | March 11 | 1:10 p.m. | B1 Hearst Field Annex
Andrey Kravtsov, Chicago
Galaxy formation is a complex, hierarchical, highly non-linear process, which involves gravitational collapse of dark matter and baryons, supersonic, highly compressible and turbulent flows of gas, cooling and heating of gas, star formation, and stellar feedback. Nevertheless, despite the apparent complexity of these processes, galaxies exhibit a number of striking regularities, such as tight... More >
