The effects of strong magnetic fields on neutron-star thermal radiation
Bellaterra (C5/020)
Strong magnetic fields (B >> 10^9 G) profoundly affect many thermodynamic and kinetic characteristics of matter in neutron star envelopes, including thermal conductivity tensor in the crust and the equation of state and radiative opacities in the atmosphere, which are major ingredients of the cooling theory and spectral atmosphere models.

Interpreting seismic signals associated with a superbolide recorded over Catalonia on May 12th, 2011 (SPMN120511)
Torre C5, Fac. Ciències UAB (Bellaterra)
A huge superbolide was recorded by several video stations of the Spanish Meteor Network (SPMN) on May 12th, 2011 at 01h30m40.7+-0.1s UTC. The superbolide overflew an area with several seismic stations of the Seismic Catalonian Network (IGC).
00/00/0000 - 30/11/2012
Amalgamating Galaxy Cluster Detection and Analysis Techniques with Current and Future Cosmological Survey Data
C5/020 (C5/020, Bellaterra)
Abstract: Ongoing surveys of large scale structure and those being planned for the future will produce copious quantities of data that can be used for the detection and analysis of clusters of galaxies, which in turn can provide powerful constraints on cosmological parameters.
00/00/0000 - 29/11/2012
Discovering Longer-Period Transiting Exoplanets
Bellaterra (C5/030)
Scores of transiting exoplanets have been discovered by ground-based surveys such as WASP, HAT, XO, TrES, MEarth, KELT, and others. Hundreds of transiting exoplanet candidates, scores of which are confirmed planets, have been discovered by the CoRot and Kepler space missions.
00/00/0000 - 29/11/2012
Transmission spectroscopy of exoplanets XO-1 b and XO-2 b observed with HST NICMOS
Bellaterra (C5/030)
The characterization of atmospheres is one of the greatest challenges in the field of exoplanets. A very powerful tool is spectroscopy during planetary transits.
00/00/0000 - 28/11/2012
Science, pseudoscience, and education
TBD (Facultat de Ciències, Campus UAB)
In this seminar I will discuss a paradox of our time. Collectively, we know much more on the Universe, the life, and other research fields that Aristotle or Archimedes knew about a couple of millenia ago, and more than Newton or Darwin few centuries ago.
00/00/0000 - 23/11/2012
Magneto-Thermal Evolution of Isolated Neutron Stars: Towards the Grand Unification
Torre C5-020 (Torre C5-020)
Thanks to the last decades of X-ray observations, the picture of an apparently heterogeneous zoo of isolated neutron stars is emerging.

00/00/0000 - 15/11/2012
Cosmology with the Lyman alpha Forest: First results from the BOSS survey
Bellaterra (TBA)
The Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey (BOSS) uses the SDSS telescope to obtain spectra of 1.5 million galaxies to get a very accurate measurements of the BAO scale at redshift z ~0.5.
00/00/0000 - 14/11/2012
Black Holes in Ultra-Luminous X-ray sources: X-ray Timing versus Spectroscopy
Bellaterra (C5-020)
Ultra-luminous X-ray sources are accreting black holes that might represent strong evidence of the Inter-Mediate Mass Black Holes (IMBH), proposed to exist by theoretical studies but with no firm detection (as a class) so far.

Encabint l’univers dins d’un ordinador [NOT TRANSLATED]
Agrupació Astronòmica de Sabadell (Sabadell)
Els cosmòlegs no tenen prou amb voler entendre com és tot l'Univers sinó que, a més, intenten reproduirlo
