5/30 Toward a better understanding of galaxy formation in ΛCDM: part II

Time: 1:20pm~3:10pm, May 30 (Thursday)
Title: Toward a better understanding of galaxy formation in ΛCDM: part II
Speaker: Dr. Yen-Ting Lin (Research Fellow)
(Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics, Academia Sinica)
Place: Science Building III SC157
Abstract:
I will continue my unfinished talk from last year(!) and provide a general overview of our current understanding of how galaxies form in the framework of the standard model of cosmology. I will review the success and potential problems ΛCDM faces in producing the galaxy population we observe, and finish with our recent validation of ΛCDM using the most massive galaxies in the universe.

Title: Hopes and challenges in modern planet formation and evolution

Abstract: With the discovery of over 5000 extra-solar planets to date, the formation and evolution of planets and planetary systems are among the most rapidly developing fields of astrophysics. In the standard ‘bottom-up’ scenario, planets form from planetesimals — km or larger-sized bodies. Planetesimals form from small, mm-cm size pebbles, which themselves form from micro-sized dust grains immersed in gaseous protoplanetary disks around young stars. I will describe several obstacles, but also new possibilities, on the road from dust to planets from recent theoretical modeling of planetesimal formation and evolution in modern models of protoplanetary disks.
