Latest News from the Universe: LambdaWDM, CMB,Warm Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Neutrinos and Sterile Neutrinos

The new concordance model in agreement with observations: ΛWDM (Lambda-dark energy- Warm Dark Matter). Recently, Warm (keV scale) Dark Matter emerged impressively over CDM (Cold Dark Matter) as the leading Dark Matter candidate. Astronomical evidence that Cold Dark Matter (LambdaCDM) and its proposed tailored baryonic cures do not work at galactic and small scales is staggering.…

IAU 311: Galaxy Masses as Constraints of Formation Models

IAU 311: Galaxy Masses as Constraints of Formation Models

In the era of precision cosmology, we think we can accurately predict the distribution of dark matter in the Universe. However the impact of baryonic physics is still largely unknown and our understanding of galaxy formation must rely on observations. A key advance in recent years has been the ability to enrich studies of the…

Sagan Summer Workshop 2014

Sagan Summer Workshop 2014

The 2014 Sagan Summer Workshop will be held on the campus of Caltech from July 21-25, 2014. The workshop will explore current techniques and technology used to detect and image exoplanets and debris disks, as well as the underlying science driving the modeling of exoplanetary atmospheres and disk structure. A number of ground-based surveys are…

Alpine Cosmology Workshop 2014

Alpine Cosmology Workshop 2014

The concept of the workshop is to combine a scientific part, in which each participant delivers a review on their topic with a group activity in which every participant is engaged. To this end we have selected to conduct the workshop at several huts located in the Alps, connected by hiking trails. Each day has…
