This is a talk given at lunch time, usually in the conference room at noon.
Research summaries by our visiting summer graduate students
I will briefly describe the Palomar Transient Factory and some results concerning supernovae shock breakout.
Come hear about the great research done by our Pomona College summer students!
The first phase of stellar evolution in the history of the Universe may be Dark Stars (DS), powered by dark matter heating rather than by nuclear fusion.
Low Ionization Nuclear Emission-line Regions (LINERs) are characterized by low ionization AGN optical emission lines from the center of their host galaxies.
I will present evidence that the incidence of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), when defined in terms of Eddington ratio, is independent of the stellar mass of the host galaxy.
