The lithium-rich giant star puzzle

acasey

Dr. Andy Casey, Postdoctoral Fellow Monash University Email: andrew.casey@monash.edu All theoretical models of stellar evolution predict that most of the lithium inside a star is destroyed as the star becomes a red giant. However, observations reveal that about 1% of red giants are peculiarly rich in lithium, often exceeding the amount in the interstellar medium or predicted from the Big Bang. With only 151 lithium-rich giants discovered in the past four decades, and no distinguishable properties other than lithium enhancement, the origin…

Astrocamp 2018

$50

Stars, a borderline mythical sky object to us city dwellers. Beautiful objects apparently littered throughout our night sky forming beautiful nebula and galaxies which can supposedly be seen with our naked eye. The only way for us to see this amazing nighttime spectacle is to leave the confines of the city lights and go somewhere darker. Come and join PAIN over the mid year break for the 20th Anniversary special edition of Astrocamp. We venture out of the city to…

The Julia Scientific Computing Language – And a Statistics Book

June 5 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Julia scientific programming language is making a positive impression on numerical analysts, data-scientists and even statisticians. This high level language aims to break the “2 language problem” by allowing development that is almost as easy as with Matlab, R or Python and execution running at speeds comparable to C or Fortran. There is no introductory statistics book for this language, so together with Hayden Klok, we embarked on the fun adventure of writing one. We are now at the…

Non-Euclidean virtual reality

June 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
illustration

Sabetta Matsumoto Georgia Institute of Technology, School of Physics The properties of euclidean space seem natural and obvious to us, to the point that it took mathematicians over two thousand years to see an alternative to Euclid’s parallel postulate. The eventual discovery of hyperbolic geometry in the 19th century shook our assumptions, revealing just how strongly our native experience of the world blinded us from consistent alternatives, even in a field that many see as purely theoretical. Non-euclidean spaces are…

Glitch – Investigating the densest matter in the universe: The 2016 glitch of the Vela pulsar

June 7 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Glitch

Public lecture by Jim Palfreyman, School of Natural Sciences, University of Tasmania. Pulsars are neutron stars that are the remnants of supernova explosions. They are highly dense and rotate rapidly, some with accuracy better than atomic clocks. The Vela pulsar famously “glitches” or speeds up in rotation roughly every three years. No glitch has ever been observed in-action with a radio telescope large enough to see individual pulses, until now. Some remarkable events occurred and these will be covered in…

Hitchin Systems in Mathematics and Beyond – Steven Rayan (University of Saskatchewan)

June 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

The Hitchin system, discovered in 1987, is a moduli space arising from the geometric study of the Yang-Mills equations on Riemann surfaces. Over the past 30 years it has become both a unifying structure and an important tool for probing many questions at the interface of complex algebraic geometry, representation theory, and integrable systems. A strong case can be made for the claim that all roads lead to the Hitchin system, at least so far as these subjects are concerned.…

Quantum Design of Topological Matter

June 12 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

From the discovery of topological insulators to the search for Majorana fermions - topological states of matter have revolutionised condensed matter research. In order to fulfil the promise of topology-based technology in the future, it will be essential to engineer such systems. In particular, I will show how to create topological superconductivity by depositing magnetic atoms on the surface of a conventional superconducting substrate. Such a topological superconductor can host Majorana fermions, exotic quasi-particles which are believed to be useful…

An entropy-based measure for comparing distributions

June 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In this talk, I will develop an entropy-based measure called case-based entropy which can be used to compare the diversity of distributions. The measure is based on computing the support of a Shannon-equivalent equi-probable distribution. It also has the capacity to compare whole or parts of distribution in a scale-free manner. I will develop the main idea from scratch and will keep the talk accessible to graduate students and researchers alike. The utility of the measure is still being explored,…

21 June 2018 Professor Mats Benner from Lund University will discuss aspects and intentions of societal engagement coducted by universities, and why confronting and combatting societal challenges is integral to higher education's objectives. OVERVIEW ‘Engagement’ in higher education: How does it affect the missions of education and research? Universities today are expected to contribute to a wide variety of goals: not only providing excellent education and research (goals that in themselves are laden with contested meanings) but also to engage…
