14.FM5 at IAU GA 2015 — The Legacy of Planck
 Start date11 Aug 2015
[ID=682453] Go to top of page
 LocationHonolulu, United States
 Abstract ESA's Planck satellite was launched in May 2009 and has surveyed the whole sky in intensity and polarization uninterruptedly between August 2009 and October 2013, over a range of frequencies spanning the radio (30 GHz) to the submillimetre (857 GHz). Planck was designed to image the anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) over the whole sky, with unprecedented sensitivity and angular resolution. Planck is now widely considered as the flagship CMB experiment.

 Abstract ESA's Planck satellite was launched in May 2009 and has surveyed the whole sky in intensity and polarization uninterruptedly between August 2009 and October 2013, over a range of frequencies spanning the radio (30 GHz) to the submillimetre (857 GHz). Planck was designed to image the anisotropies of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) over the whole sky, with unprecedented sensitivity and angular resolution. In addition to the main cosmological goals of the mission, the Planck sky surveys are being used to study in detail the very sources of emission which "contaminate" the CMB signal, and results in a wealth of information on the properties of extragalactic sources, and on the dust and gas in our own galaxy.

 Dates 11 Aug 2015 → 13 Aug 2015
[ID=695263] Go to top of page
 LocationHonolulu, Hawaii, United States
 Abstract The explosion of massive stars as GRBs and SNe are among the most powerful and luminous events in the Universe. Their progenitors require special conditions to form and upon their explosive death they release energy and heavy elements back into their environment and a new cycle of star-formation begins with different initial conditions. Those stellar explosions play an important role in the general evolution of galaxies across the entire history of the Universe. In this Focus Meeting we want to foster the interaction between the different communities working on massive stellar explosions, star-forming galaxies and galaxy evolution, observational as well as theoretical, to improve the knowledge of the scientific community on their mutual influences.

 Dates 17 Aug 2015 → 18 Aug 2015
[ID=717083] Go to top of page
 LocationHonolulu, United States
 Abstract Dramatically improved data from observatories like the Kepler spacecraft have recently enabled nonlinear time series analysis and phenomenological modeling of variable stars, including the search for strange (aka fractal) or chaotic dynamics. For example, Kepler data suggests that the spectral scaling of some golden stars — whose luminosities vary quasiperiodically with two frequencies nearly in the golden ratio -- resembles the spatial scaling of the rugged Norwegian coast, a signature of strange nonchaotic dynamics. Do all golden stars exhibit Norwegian scaling? More generally, does variable star dynamics exhibit universal or peculiar features? The CATS conference will forge a synergy between variable star astronomers and nonlinear dynamicists to advance our understanding of variable star dynamics.

 Organizer Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics
 Abstract The goal of this program is to understand the role of molecules, heavy elements and dust for star formation, and how these species affect the properties and evolution of early galaxies. Possible approaches to answer these questions will be discussed by a diverse group of astrophysicists working on star formation, galaxy formation and evolution, star bursts in extreme environments, both locally and at the highest redshifts. The timeliness of the topic is evidenced by the unprecedented millimeter/submillimeter data that is constraining key physical processes governing star formation and metal and dust enrichment in the first billion years of cosmic history. Observations of local and distant starburst galaxies indicate the existence of a tight connection between the star formation rate and molecular gas fraction, which is primarily controlled by the abundance of dust and by the intensity of interstellar far-ultraviolet radiation field. We are thus likely to witness a major breakthrough in this field during the next couple of years, as the sensitivity of the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) will provide an unrivaled probe of the first stars and galaxies emerging from the cosmic Dark Ages.
