The following events of interest to the group are coming up in the next week:

21/11/2019
  • Cosmology Journal Club

    Time: 21/11/201911:00 - 12:00

    Location: C4.278, Science Park 904, Amsterdam

    Description: Weekly cosmology journal club. Papers can be posted here.

  • GW/BH Lecture I: Vitor Cardoso

    Time: 21/11/201915:00 - 17:00

    Location: D1.110, Science Park 904, Amsterdam

    Title: Some Thoughts on Black Holes

    Abstract: Black holes are the simplest macroscopic objects one can conceive of and ideal tools to test new physics or even some of the remarkable predictions of General Relativity. In these two lectures, we will discuss well-established black hole physics and outline some of the unexplored aspects, perhaps of relevance to gravitational-wave astronomy or to the strengthening of the black hole paradigm.

25/11/2019
  • GRAPPA Colloquium: Dan Scolnic

    Time: 25/11/201911:00 - 12:00

    Location: C4.174, Science Park 904, Amsterdam

    Title: New Excitement In Measurements of Dark Energy and The Hubble Constant

    Abstract: In this talk, I will present the latest measurements of the expansion rate of the universe as well as its acceleration. I will focus on the use of Type-Ia Supernovae, which continue to be an extremely powerful probe of the local universe. I will dive into the Hubble constant tension, now called a ‘crisis’, and give updates about all of the most recent results as well as what to expect within the next six months. I will also go over recent claims attempting to disprove the confirmation of the accelerating universe. I will then discuss the next generation of telescopes and the supernova revolution we should be expecting in the next decade.
