Title: New Insights on the Origin of Cosmic Rays

Speaker: Damiano Caprioli, University of Chicago

Abstract: The origin of extraterrestrial energetic particles (usually referred to as “cosmic rays”) has puzzled scientists since the pioneering discovery by Victor Hess in 1912. In the last decade, however, modern supercomputers have opened a new window on the processes regulating space and astrophysical plasmas, allowing the study of particle acceleration via first-principles kinetic simulations. I present state-of-the-art particle-in-cells simulations of non-relativistic shocks, in which ion and electron acceleration efficiency and magnetic field amplification are studied in detail as a function of the environmental parameters. I then discuss the theoretical and observational counterparts of such findings, comparing them with in-situ measurements at shocks in the heliosphere (especially the Earth’s bow shock) and with multi-wavelength observations of astrophysical objects such as supernova remnants and galaxy clusters. Finally, I present an original mechanism for the acceleration of the highest energy cosmic rays, up to 10^20eV, in the ultra-relativistic jets of powerful blazars, outlining how it naturally reproduces the latest results of the Pierre Auger Observatory.

Title: Searches for New Physics at the Edge of Absolute Zero

Speaker: Jonathan Ouellette, MIT
 

Abstract: 

• Why is there something in the universe instead of nothing?

• What is the nature of the so-called Dark Matter that constitutes some 85% of the matter content of the universe?

These are two questions that each bring together physics on the largest of observable scales with the behavior of particles on the smallest of scales. Why matter formed and what caused it to cluster and form the galaxies and stars that we see in the universe are among the most fundamental open questions in physics today. And the answers may lie in understanding the breakdowns of the Standard Model. In this talk I will discuss the search for Neutrinoless Double Beta Decay — a lepton number violating decay that may shed light on the matter-antimatter asymmetry of the Universe — and describe the CUORE experiment, which searches for this decay. I will also discuss the search for Axion Dark Matter, and a new experiment that we are building at MIT to discover it, called ABRACADABRA.

Planet Nine from Outer Space: Status Update

Over the course of the past two decades, observational surveys have un-veiled the intricate orbital structure of the Kuiper Belt, a field of icy bodies orbiting the Sun beyond Neptune. In addition to a host of readily-predictable orbital behavior, the emerging census of trans-Neptunian objects displays dy- namical phenomena that cannot be explained by interactions with the known eight-planet Solar System alone. Specifically, the observed physical cluster-ing of orbits with semi-major axes in excess of ~250 AU, the detachment of perihelia of select Kuiper belt objects from Neptune, as well as the dynamical origin of highly inclined/retrograde long-period orbits remain elusive within the context of the classical view of the Solar System. This newly outlined dynamical architecture of the distant solar system points to the existence of planet with mass M9 ~ 10M⊕ on a moderately inclined orbit with semi-major axis a9 ~ 400-800 AU and eccentricity e9 ~ 0.4-0.6. In this talk, I will review the observational motivation, dynamical constraints, and prospects for detection of this proposed object known as Planet Nine.


Title: Primordial Non-Gaussianities and the Distribution of Galaxies on Large Scales

Speaker: Mark Wise, Caltech

Abstract: The inflationary cosmology predicts a primordial two point spatial correlation of the dark matter mass density that is almost scale invariant. This is in agreement with measurements of the microwave background anisotropy. The fluctuations in the dark matter mass density generated during the inflationary era may not be Gaussian. I discuss how such primordial non-Gaussianities can dramatically alter our expectations for the spatial correlations of the number density of galaxies on large length scales (~ greater than 100 Mpc/h). I discuss this phenomena in the context of a very simple inflationary model. It is possible that these dramatic effects will be observed in upcoming large scale surveys like LSST.

Yue Zhang: Top-philic Z-prime Forces at the LHC

January 29, 2018, 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Title: Top-philic Z-prime Forces at the LHC

Speaker: Yue Zhang, Northwestern University
 

Abstract: Despite extensive searches for an additional neutral massive gauge boson at the LHC, a Z′ at the weak scale could still be present if its couplings to the first two generations of quarks are suppressed, in which case the production in hadron colliders relies on tree-level processes in association with heavy flavors or one-loop processes in association with a jet. We consider the low-energy effective theory of a top-philic Z′ and present possible UV completions. We clarify theoretical subtleties in evaluating the production of a top-philic Z′ at the LHC and examine carefully the treatment of an anomalous Z′ current in the low-energy effective theory. Recipes for properly computing the production rate in the Z′+j channel are given. We discuss constraints from colliders and low-energy probes of new physics. As an application, we apply these considerations to models that use a weak-scale Z′ to explain possible violations of lepton universality in B meson decays, and show that the future running of a high luminosity LHC can potentially cover much of the remaining parameter space favored by this particular interpretation of the B physics anomaly.

Title: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Eclipsing Binaries

Speaker: Maxwell Moe, University of Arizona

Host: Diego Munoz

Abstract: Wide-field photometric surveys have discovered hundreds of thousands of eclipsing binaries (EBs), and Gaia, TESS, and LSST will soon discover millions more. EBs provide the fundamental stellar relations and the most accurate distances to local group galaxies, and we are continuously finding new ways to utilize EBs as precise astrophysical tools. For example, collaborators and I developed a novel method for measuring the ages, masses, eccentricities, and dust extinctions of EBs based solely on their photometric light curves. By age-dating large samples of EBs, we have measured the acceleration of H II regions due to stellar feedback, calibrated the anti-correlation between dust extinction and age, found empirical evidence for an important tidal dissipation mechanism, and discovered a new class of nascent EBs with extreme mass ratios. I will discuss how the statistics of EBs provide stringent tests for models of protobinary fragmentation, accretion, and orbital migration. In addition, the updated multiplicity statistics serve as reliable initial conditions for binary population synthesis studies, revealing new insights into the progenitors of Type Ia supernovae, X-ray binaries, and sources of gravitational waves. I will end by highlighting the VARiability Survey of the TriAngulum GAlaxy (VARSTAGA), the first simultaneously deep and high-cadence survey of a local group galaxy specifically designed to discover unique classes of EBs, variables, and transients.

Title: Imaging Black Holes now and in the future

Speaker: Heino Falcke, Radboud University Nijmegen

Host: Rocco Coppejans

Abstract: One of the most fundamental predictions of general relativity are black holes. Their defining feature is the event horizon, the surface that even light cannot escape. So far, we have never seen the event horizon, but this is about to change. Advanced computer simulations make clear predictions of how the shadow of black holes should look like and global interferometric radio observations with the Event Horizon Telescope are now trying to image the supermassive black hole in the center of our own Milky Way and the radio galaxy M87 for the very first time. To improve the imaging quality further more telescopes should be added to the array, in particular in Africa. The more distant future will belong to higher frequencies and space-based interferometry. The talk will give an overview of the ongoing research to image and simulate black holes, as well as of plans for future expansions.

Speaker: Duncan Lorimer,  West Virginia University

Host: Deanne Coppejans

Abstract: Fast Radio Bursts are millisecond-duration pulses of unknown origin that were discovered by pulsar astronomers in 2007. A decade on from the discovery, with only 20 further bursts currently known, fast radio bursts remain enigmatic sources which parallel the early days of gamma-ray burst astronomy in the early 1970s. I will tell the story of their discovery, summarize what we know about them so far, describe the science opportunities these bursts present, and make predictions for what we will learn in the next decade.

Title: Proton puzzles at the precision frontier

Speaker: Jan Bernauer
 

Abstract: 

The nucleon and its structure are the focus of intense study on all
energy scales, in both current and upcoming experiments. It is one of
the simplest systems in non-perturbative QCD and the accurate
description of its properties are a touchstone for theoretical
calculations.

However, many properties of the proton, for example mass and spin, are
still puzzling. Recent precision experiments have highlighted two areas
where we do not understand how nature works: the proton radius and the
form factor ratio discrepancy. The former, still unsolved, may have opened
the door to the discovery of physics beyond the Standard Model. While a
solution for the latter seems in reach, the precision results of OLYMPUS
prove theoretical calculations to be incomplete.

In this talk, I will discuss the Mainz high precision form factor
measurement and global form factor analysis, which are corner stones of
the radius puzzle, and the results of the OLYMPUS experiment, set up to
study the form factor ratio discrepancy.

I will close with a short description of ongoing and future precision-frontier
experiments like MUSE and DarkLight.
