This is a talk held during the regular colloquium series (usually Tuesdays at 4pm).

Constraining the Timescales of Galaxy Evolution using Observations and Simulations

Tuesday, April 6, 2021 - 11:00am
Dr. Kartheik Iyer (University of Toronto)

A diverse range of physical processes are responsible for regulating star formation across galaxies. Understanding their relative contributions to galaxy growth and quenching at different epochs is one of the key questions in galaxy evolution today.

The Statistic of One

Tuesday, April 27, 2021 - 11:00am
Prof. David Kipping (Columbia University)

It’s often said that one data point teaches you nothing. In fact, zero data points teaches you nothing, and no magical transition happens from one to two data points.

Evolving from nearby-observations of feedback to a time theory dependent star-formation

Tuesday, February 2, 2021 - 11:00am
Dr. Eric Pellegrini (Heidelberg)

Historically models of star forming regions in the forms of HII regions and PDRs  face a fundemental limitation of reproducing present day conditions independent of cloud evolution which limits our understand of feedback to instantaneous physics.

Neutron Star and Black Hole Formation in Binary Stars

Tuesday, January 19, 2021 - 11:00am
Dr. Fabian Schneider (University of Heidelberg)

The majority of massive stars are born in binary and higher-order multiple systems, which leads to two interesting consequences. First, most massive stars will exchange mass with a binary companion at some point in their life and, secondly, most supernovae are actually from such stars.
