Upcoming Events

The Physics of Crushing and Smashing: Cascades and Cataclysmic Changes
Shmuel Rubinstein, Harvard University
Event Type: Physics Dept Colloquium

Date: Thursday, November 15, 2018

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: Many of the big problems we are facing involve far from equilibrium systems that entail a cataclysmic change. Climate, turbulence and earthquakes, developmental biology, aging death, and even evolution. These phenomena are rare (sometimes occurring only once) and are entirely irreversible. While understanding the physics of such irreversible processes is of both fundamental and practical importance, these problems also pose unique challenges. These challenges, as they manifest in turbulence, were beautifully portrayed by Richardson: “Big whirls have little whirls that feed on their velocity, and little whirls have lesser whirls and so on to viscosity” Lewis Fry Richardson (1922) In his short verse, Richardson captures the essence of the turbulent cascade—the conveyance of kinetic energy across scales that underlies the universal dynamics of turbulent flows. Indeed, such conveyance of important physical quantities (energy, stress, frustration and even information) down and up a vast range of scales underlines the dynamics of many systems. The same applies to how a multi-contact frictional interface will form and break or how correlated defect structures determine the strength of a space-rocket, how an intricate network of creases will form when we crumple a thin sheet or when soda can is smashed. The challenge in understanding these systems is in capturing the events as they occur, keeping up with the dynamics on all scales and at all times. Here, I will review our work on several key irreversible system and introduce the new tools we developed to address their unique evolution and discuss the interesting physics we learned. Specifically, I will discuss: turbulence in the collision of vortex rings, buckling, and failure.
From the Table-Top to the Cosmos: Searching High and Low for Dark Matter
Hongwan Liu, MIT
Event Type: Informal HEP Talk

Date: Friday, November 16, 2018

Time: 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 902, Lg Conf

Description: In this talk, I will explore two recent developments in the search for dark matter. First, I will discuss how the 21-cm global signal measurement constrains the potential impact of dark matter annihilation/decay on the thermal history of the universe. I will also explain how to accurately compute such modifications to the baryon temperature in the early universe using a soon-to-be-released public code called DarkHistory. Second, I will discuss the Axion Detection with Birefringent Cavities (ADBC) experiment, which aims to observe rotations induced by axion dark matter in the polarization of light using optical interferometry techniques

New views on the Galaxy and its satellites from the Gaia space mission
Amina Helmi, Kapteyn Institute, Groningen
Event Type: Big Apple Colloquium

Date: Friday, November 16, 2018

Time: 3:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Location: AMNH, TBA

Description: The recent 2nd data release of the Gaia mission is revolutionizing our understanding of the Milky Way and its constituents. In this talk, I will highlight a few of the first results stemming from the analysis of this truly spectacular dataset. In particular, I will focus on what we have learned about the dynamics and assembly of the Milky Way and its satellites thus far. Talk will be followed by a 3D fly-thu of the full GAIA data set using the hi-res projection system of the Hayden Theater. ************* LOCATION: Rose Center for Earth and Space, American Museum of Natural History Planetarium Entrance: 81st Street drive, between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue Alert Security Guards that you are here to attend the Big Apple Colloquium Reception and they will direct you downstairs.

Shedding light on the invisible universe
Andrea Maccio, NYU-AD
Event Type: Special Colloquium

Date: Friday, November 30, 2018

Time: 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

Location: 726 Broadway, 940, CCPP Seminar

Description: We live in a dark universe, a place where the matter we know, made of electrons, protons and neutrons amounts to just few percent of total energy budget. The remnant electromagnetically silent majority is made by two unknown fluids dubbed Dark Matter and Dark Energy. Understanding their nature is the biggest puzzle in modern physics. I will present our efforts towards numerically model structure (galaxy) formation and evolution in such a dark Universe, and I will show how simulations of galaxy formation are a key tool to test and validate our current Cosmological model. I will also show how a firm understanding of the formation of the visible side of the Universe can be used to put constraints on the nature of its elusive dark components.
