The "N" in "N-body"

Tuesday, September 25, 2018 - 4:00pm
Dr. Andrew Benson (Carnegie)

N-body simulations are now the standard approach to studying non- linear structure formation. With ~trillion particle simulations now possible, containing many billions of dark matter halos, measures of key quantities (such as the halo mass function) can be made at extremely high precision.

MagNIFIES/GMTNIRS - the power and promise of a new generation of near-infrared high resolution spectroscopy

Tuesday, November 6, 2018 - 4:00pm
Dr. Alycia Weinberger (DTM) and Prof. Daniel Jaffe (UT Austin)

MagNIFIES is the Magellans' Near-Infrared Five-band Immersion grating Efficient Spectrograph, a project to bring the GMT instrument GMTNIRS to Magellan before GMT needs it.
