Dark matter, under different angles
Date: Thursday, October 7th
Time: 4:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin Hall
Speaker: Alberto Vallinoto, Fermilab
Abstract: Most often, the dark matter puzzle is analyzed along a single perspective, thus trying to answer a single question. Either "what is the dark matter?", focusing on its microscopic nature, or "how is dark matter distributed?" and "how does it cluster?" focusing on the large scale structure of the universe, or still "how does it
affect what we observe in the sky?", focusing on gravitational lensing. Both my scientific interests and some random fluctuations at the beginning of my career have conspired so that I would take on projects in all these fields. Leaving aside the ambition -- and the impossible task -- to be comprehensive, I will review some interesting aspects of these fields and some of my contributions.
Host: Peter Timbie
