Second UK-Ukraine meeting on Solar Physics and Space Science

Second UK-Ukraine meeting on Solar Physics and Space Science

The meeting will cover a broad range of aspects of solar physics, space science and solar-terrestrial relations. We aim to include every side of solar and space research, including observations, theory, and numerical modelling. The main idea behind the meeting is to treat the entire solar-terrestrial domain as one system, rather than each region independently.…

Synergistic Science with Euclid and the Square Kilometre Array

Synergistic Science with Euclid and the Square Kilometre Array

The next decade will see the beginning of operations of two of the largest survey telescopes that will revolutionize our understanding of the Universe. Euclid aims to map the Universe at optical and near-infrared wavelengths from space, and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) has similar scientific aims utilizing radio wavelength observations from two sites centred…

Stellar dynamics and growth of massive black holes

Stellar dynamics and growth of massive black holes

The study of galactic nuclei has advanced rapidly during the past few years.  Observations carried out with space-borne telescopes, such as the Hubble Space Telescope, or from the ground, using adaptive optics, have allowed us to study the kinematics of stars and gas in regions reaching down to sub-parsec scales for external galaxies, and to…

5th INPE Advanced Course – An Overview of Cosmology in the era of Large Telescopes

The questioning about the Universe we inhabit is one of the main characteristics of the human species. Since dawn of human civilization, men wonder what the Universe is and why it is what it is. Cosmology, as a science of the Universe, in the last few decades has provided an important physical description of the…
