SITP Seminar: The Hubble Hunter’s Guide

-
Location

Campus, Varian 355

 

 

Speaker
Lloyd Knox (UC Davis)

There appears to be a significant discrepancy between Lambda CDM predictions of the Hubble constant and measurements of the Hubble constant. I will review the evidence that this discrepancy arises due to a faliure of LCDM, and discuss the challenges to resolving the discrepancy with various LCDM extensions.

 

SLACmass: VRO after LSST

-
Location

Speaker
Aaron Roodman

Dear all,

 

we'll kick off a series of discussions of topics relevant to SLACmass this Friday. For this we use the Stanford Survey Synergy Seminar slot

 

FPD Theory Seminar: The Magic of Red Galaxies: Tracing Structure Formation With Galaxy Clusters and More

-
Location

SLAC, Building 048, Madrone Conf. Room, Room 224

Speaker
Eli Rykoff (KIPAC/SLAC)

Galaxy clusters, as the largest peaks in the cosmic density field, play an important role in astrophysics and cosmology.  As the most dramatic features of large-scale structure, the abundance of clusters provides a key opportunity to test our understanding of structure formation and cosmic expansion history.  In recent years, observational astrophysics has been revolutionized by large surveys, yielding large optical cluster catalogs allowing for precision tracking of the growth of structure.
