Neutron Stars and Fundamental Physics
Speaker(s): Vicky Kaspi
Abstract: Neutron stars are collapsed remnants of massive stars. One form of neutron star, pulsars, produce clock-like radio pulses, a result of their rotation combined with a misalignment of their rotation and magnetic axes. These pulses can be used in a variety of experiments in fundamental physics, includi... read more

Determination of Total C18O Column Density in Orion KL
Speaker(s): Aida Ahmadi
Abstract: The large number of high-energy rotational lines of C18O, available via the Herschel Space Observatory, provides an unprecedented ability to model the total C18O column density in hot cores. Using the emission from all the observed lines (up to J=16-15) we use an automated algorithm to model all tra... read more

PIRSA:11070051  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Searching for Neutron Stars in Disguise with NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory
Speaker(s): Alina Chen He
Abstract: Neutron stars are the collapsed cores of massive stars that went under supernova explosions. They are found with high surface magnetic fields, rapid but steady rotation and high density comparable to that inside an atomic nucleus. In the past 20 years, many different classes of neutron stars have be... read more

PIRSA:11070052  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Detection of Magnetic Fields in Cool Supergiants
Speaker(s): Nikta Javanfar
Abstract: Magnetic fields of stars can provide insight on their structure and evolution. These magnetic fields can be detected by exploiting the Zeeman effect. The theory behind detection and the method of Lease Squares Deconvolution will be described and preliminary results will be presented.

PIRSA:11070053  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Exploring Dark Matter in a Leptophilic Two-Higgs-Doublet Model
Speaker(s): Miriam Diamond
Abstract: A recent analysis of gamma rays from the centre of our galaxy has provided possible evidence for a dark matter annihilation signal, with the dark matter taking the form of low-mass WIMPs annihilating predominantly to taus. We study an extended Higgs model proposed to yield such a dark matter candida... read more

Gamma Ray Bursts and the Principle of Relative Locality
Speaker(s): Anna McCoy
Abstract: TBA

PIRSA:11070055  ( MP4 Medium Res , MP3 , PDF ) Which Format?
Deformations of Lifshitz Holography in Higher Dimensions
Speaker(s): Miok Park
Abstract: (n+1)-dimensional Lifshitz spacetime is deformed by logarithmic expansions in the way to admit a marginally relevant mode in which z is restricted by n=z+1. According to the holographic principle, the deformed spacetime is assumed to be dual for quantum critical theories, and then thermodynamics of ... read more

Radiation Instability for a Matter Bounce
Speaker(s): Johanna Karouby
Abstract: In this talk I will discuss an alternative to infation models, namely non singular bouncing models.Their advantage is to supress both the transplanckian problem and the big bang singularity. It also gives a scale invariant power spectrum in the case of amatter bounce.First we will study a toy model,... read more
