Cosmological Seed Magnetic Field from Inflation by Bharat Ratra

Sep 18, 2017, 2:00 PM-3:00 PM

202 Physics Bldg.

Host: Prof. Scott Watson / Contact: Yudaisy Salomón Sargentón, 315-443-5960

A cosmological magnetic field of nG strength on Mpc length scales could be the seed magnetic field needed
to explain observed few microG large-scale galactic magnetic fields. I first briefly review the observational
and theoretical motivations for such a seed field, two galactic magnetic field amplification models, and some
non-inflationary seed field generation scenarios. I then discuss an inflation magnetic field generation model.
I conclude by mentioning possible extensions of this model as well as potentially observable consequences.

The Kameshwar C. Wali Lecture in the Sciences and Humanities: "Mapping the Heavens: how radical ideas have transformed our cosmic view" by Dr. Priyamvada Natarajan

Oct 26, 2017, 4:00 PM-6:00 PM

Shemin Auditorium, Shaffer Art Building

Host: Simon Catterall/ Contact: Yudaisy Salomón Sargentón, 315-443-5960

From time immemorial humans have been charting the night sky and trying to make sense of it and contemplating their place in the cosmos. I will recount the evolution of celestial map-making and show how maps literally track our ever evolving cosmic view. Tracing our understanding of the universe, its contents and its evolution - in this Wali lecture, I will talk about recent developments in our understanding of two invisible entities: dark matter and black holes.
