ICCUB THESIS – Coupling Fluid-dynamics and Non-thermal Processes to Study Sources of High-Energy Emission
Sala de Graus Eduard Fontseré. Facultat de Física
By Víctor Moreno de la Cita (Dept. Física Quàntica i Astrofísica) Director: Valentí Bosch Ramon, Dmitry Khangulyan In this thesis we have developed a tool for the computation of non-thermal emission in astrophysical sources. The code reads the hydrodynamic data coming from relativistic hydrodynamic simulations and compute the injection, evolution and radiation of non-thermal particles.

Proxima b: small planets around red dwarfs and the search for life beyond the Solar system
Aula Magna Enric Casassas
The existence of Proxima b -a possibly terrestrial planet in the habitable zone of the nearest star to the Sun- is a lucky concidence but not an event of cosmic fortune. Red dwarf stars that cannot be seen via naked eye are the most common stars in the Galaxy (about 70% of them) and detecting small, rocky, temperate and potentially habitable planets is way easier than around more massive stars like our Sun.
