Structure formation with hot particles
Speaker(s): Neal Dalal
Abstract: I will describe a novel method for simulating nonlinear structure formation in cosmologies that have hot or warm collisionless species. After introducing the method, I will show results of our simulations for universes with massive neutrinos, and warm dark matter simulations.

Probing cosmic flows through the kinematic Sunyaev Zel'dovich effect
Speaker(s): Emmanuel Schaan
Abstract: Beyond its primary fluctuations, the cosmic microwave background (CMB) contains a wealth of information on the large-scale structure of the universe, which it illuminates as a backlight. The baryon momentum field is thus imprinted on the CMB through the kinematic Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (kSZ) effect. Cur... read more

Precision reconstruction of the cold dark matter-neutrino relative velocity.
Speaker(s): Derek Inman
Abstract: Neutrinos occur in great number throughout the Universe, yet remain poorly understood due to their weak interactions with other matter. In particular, individual neutrino masses remain an elusive property for particle physicists and cosmologists abound. Recently, it has been proposed that individual... read more

CMB Anomalies and Non-Gaussianity
Speaker(s): Sarah Shandera
Abstract: When the primordial fluctuations are non-Gaussian and inflation lasts longer than the minimum number of e-folds, the likelihood that we observe mild deviations from isotropy increases. I will present a single framework that encompasses many of the most promising scenarios for generating a hemispheri... read more

Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Convergence.
Speaker(s): Hume Feldman
Abstract: Modeling the cosmic velocity field, and especially estimating its lowest order moment, the bulk flow, has been a popular pursuit among aficionados in the cosmological community for three decades now. Other than estimating the magnitude and direction of the flow, one of the main difficulties has been... read more

Fine Tuning May Not Be Enough
Speaker(s): Richard Woodard
Abstract: This talk is based on arXiv:1506.07306, with Shun-Pei Miao. We argue that the fine tuning problems of scalar-driven inflation may be worse than is commonly believed. The reason is that reheating requires the inflaton to be coupled to other matter fields whose vacuum fluctuations alter the inflaton p... read more
