The first ten lines of each message are reported, if more than ten lines were submitted the additional text is displayed by selecting the "Show More" link.

Sometimes users submit messages for dates which disagree with the real date of the event. Unfortunately the program generating these lists only knows about the reported date (shown at the top of each listing), not the real date (you may have to follow a Show More link to check it).

-------------------------------------------------- SPECIAL: Astronomy Colloquium Friday, November 17th, 2017 2:00 - 3:00 pm Sears Library Bldg. room 552 Phil Hopkins (Caltech) Stars Re-Shaping Galaxies The most fundamental unsolved problems in galaxy formation revolve around "feedback" from massive stars and black holes. I'll present new results from the FIRE simulations which combine new numerical methods and physics in an attempt to realistically model the diverse physics of the interstellar medium, star formation, and feedback from stellar radiation pressure, supernovae, stellar winds, and photo-ionization. These mechanisms lead to 'self-regulated' galaxy and star formation, in which global correlations such as the Schmidt-Kennicutt law and the global inefficiency of star formation - the stellar mass function - emerge naturally. Within galaxies, feedback regulates the structure of the interstellar medium, but more radically drives outflows which can actually change the dynamics, morphologies, and sizes of galaxies, in addition to transforming cusps into cores and suppressing star formation. We are actually reaching the point where different stellar feedback and stellar types can produce observable differences on extra-galactic scales. Finally, I'll discuss where stellar feedback fails, and additional feedback, perhaps from AGN, is really needed to explain observations. -------------------------------------------------- -- The Physics Email Robot Email with help as the Subject of your message to learn more about Physbot.
