R. G. Herb Condensed Matter Seminar
Physical Review B: An inside look
Time: 10:00 am
Place: Chamberlin 5310
Speaker: Victor Vakaryuk, APS Physical Review B
Abstract: PRB is the largest journal in all of physics and the second largest in all of science. It receives around 10,000 submissions annually which are handled by a team of 10 in-house editors. Being one of them I will give an overview of the journal and its editorial policies and practices in a way it could be useful for the audience of both authors and referees. I will also spend some time talking about other members of Physical Review family such as PRL and recently launched open-access journal PRX.

Astronomy Colloquium
Ejective Feedback and the Gas Around Galaxies
Time: 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Place: 4421 Sterling Hall, Talk starts at 3:45 PM
Speaker: Aleks Diamond-Stanic, UW Astronomy Grainger postdoctoral Fellow
Abstract: Our understanding of galaxy evolution centers around questions of how gas gets into galaxies, how it participates in star formation and black hole growth, and how it is returned to its galactic surroundings via feedback. On a global scale, measurements of the baryon density and the stellar mass function indicate that only 5% of baryons have formed stars by the present day, and this suggests that feedback from massive stars and supermassive black holes must prevent gas from forming stars in both low-mass and high-mass dark matter halos. I will present observational results on the geometry and kinematics of outflowing and inflowing gas around galaxies, including measurements of ejective feedback that is capable of quenching star formation by removing the cold gas supply. These results have broader implications for how gas is consumed and expelled at the centers of massive galaxies and for the limits of feedback from stellar radiation and
supernovae. I will also discuss prospects for characterizing the physical properties of gas in and around galaxies using multi-wavelength spectroscopy with existing and future facilities.

Careers for Physicists
Physical Review B
Time: 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Place: 5280 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Victor Vakaryuk , Editor at the Physical Review B
Abstract: Victor is an Editor at the Physical Review B. Students will have an opportunity to learn about alternative career paths within American Physical Society. Students will also have an opportunity to learn in the informal way about editorial policies and practices that could be important for future publications.
