Triples are Here and There, Triples are Everywhere (Triples inPlanets, Stars, and Balck holes)

Abstract: Many observed triple systems in our Universe are in a hierarchical configuration: two objects orbit each other in a relatively tight inner binary while the third object is on a much wider orbit. In this case, the secular approximation (i.e., phase-averaged, long-term evolution) can be applied, where the interactions between two non-resonant orbits are equivalent to treating the two orbits as massive wires. Thus, the orbits may change shape and orientation, on timescales longer than the orbital periods, but the semi-major axes are constant. This approximation has been proven to be very useful in many astrophysical contexts, from planetary to triple-star systems and even black holes. I will discuss recent developments in that field and will show that hierarchical triple systems are richer and far more exciting than considered of before. In particular, the tight orbit can reach extremely high eccentricities and undergo chaotic flips of its orientation. This behavior has important implications for the evolution of many systems, and I will present some seminal examples, such as retrograde hot Jupiters, blue stragglers, and black-hole binaries.

Measuring the Small-Scale Matter Power Spectrum with Ultra-High-Resolution CMB Lensing

I will show how ultra-high-resolution measurements of the gravitational lensing of the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) can be used to measure the small-scale matter power spectrum. A robust measurement of structure on scales below 10 kiloparsecs today (M < 10^9 solar masses) with lensing of the CMB requires a telescope with roughly 20 arcsecond resolution or better, and would provide a firm anchor against which to match models of dark matter particle properties and the baryonic influence on the dark matter distribution. For example, a CMB survey at 90 GHz covering 4,000 square degrees of sky, with an instrumental sensitivity of 0.1 microKelvin-arcmin at 10 arcsecond resolution, could distinguish between cold dark matter and an alternative such as 1 keV warm dark matter or 10^−22 eV fuzzy dark matter with about 30-sigma significance, in the absence of baryonic effects; it may also allow one to distinguish between the impact of baryons and the particle nature of dark matter, since each potentially affects the shape of the lensing power spectrum differently. In addition, such a high-resolution, low-noise CMB Dark Matter Survey would also push the boundaries of our knowledge about the early Universe, dark energy, reionization, and galaxy evolution.
