Buchi neri, ‘portali’ verso altri universi

Due scienziati, Rodolfo Gambini dell’University of the Republic in Montevideo, Uruguay, e Jorge Pullin della Louisiana State University, hanno applicato la teoria della Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG) al caso di un buco nero di Schwarzschild. Nel loro articolo pubblicato su Physical Review Letters, i due scienziati non trovano una singolarità nel suo centro bensì una sorta di…

Warm Dark Matter Galaxies In Agreement With Observations

Warm Dark Matter Galaxies In Agreement With Observations

Purpose of the workshop: 1. A Turning Point operated recently in the Dark Matter research: Warm Dark Matter (WDM) emerged impressively over Cold Dark Matter (CDM) as the leading Dark Matter candidate. WDM solves naturally the problems of CDM and agrees with the observations at small as well as large and cosmological scales. This workshop…

SKA Science Workshop in East-Asia 2013

SKA Science Workshop in East-Asia 2013

The SKA (Square Kilometer Array) is a next-generation radio telescope consisting of 3000 antennas, planned by an international organization. The SKA has an unprecedentedly wide field, wide frequency coverage, high sensitivity, and high angular resolution simultaneously at 100 MHz-10GHz. It will allow us to probe the Universe at a level of sensitivity and completeness orders…

IAU Symposium 299: Exploring the Formation and Evolution of Planetary Systems

IAU Symposium 299: Exploring the Formation and Evolution of Planetary Systems

This symposium will bring together experts on the growth of planetary systems in protoplanetary discs through their early evolution to the final systems we observe around main-sequence stars today. Our goal is to enhance the interaction between those who study the formation of planets and those who study evolved exoplanets—two communities who do not typically interact strongly…
