Past Astro Seminars



Astronomy seminar: "Merging Supermassive Black Hole Binaries"

Zoltan Haiman (Columbia University)
-

Supermassive black hole (SMBH) binaries are inevitably produced during galaxy formation, but observational evidence for them remains elusive.  I will discuss the coupled dynamics of a SMBH binary…



Astronomy seminar: "Kinematic distortions within the MaNGA galaxy survey: frequency, impacts, and origins"

David Stark (Haverford College)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

The rise of large Integral-Field-Unit (IFU) galaxy surveys has greatly enhanced our ability to conduct statistical analyses on the internal motions of galaxies.  I will first illustrate a new…



Astronomy seminar: "Constraining Supernova Explosions with Kepler's High-Cadence Lightcurves"

Armin Rest (STSCI)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Despite the expanding set of SNe discovered in recent surveys like PS1, ZTF, ATLAS, and ASAS-SN, several fundamental questions remain of the…



Astronomy seminar: "High-redshift astrophysics using every photon"

Patick Breysse (CITA)
- David Rittenhouse Laboratory, A6

Large galaxy surveys have dramatically improved our understanding of astrophysics and cosmology in the high-redshift universe, but they are fundamentally limited by the need to integrate…
