Quando gli astronomi la datarono inizialmente, essa si rivelò un mistero cosmico: l'oggetto sembrava molto vecchio e venne subito soprannominato "la stella di Matusalemme". (altro…)

The Early Life of Stellar Clusters

The goal of the workshop is to bridge the artificial divide between the fields of star formation and stellar dynamics. Star formation provides the initial conditions for the long term evolution of stellar clusters, while the dynamics of stars in clusters after star formation has ceased can inform on the conditions that have prevailed in…

Cosmology and Structure Formation

Our understanding of the cosmos has been making rapid progress thanks to an interplay of recent precision cosmological observations of the CMB and LSS, and advancement in theoretical understanding. The aim of this 6th KIAS workshop is to review the recent progress in the observational results and our current state of understanding of them from a…
