Astronomy Colloquium
"Heavy element synthesis in the Universe"
Date: Thursday, April 30th
Time: 3:45 pm
Place: 4421 Sterling Hall
Speaker: Enrico Ramirez-Ruiz, UCO Lick
Abstract: The source of about half of the heaviest elements in the Universe has been a mystery for a long time. Although the general picture of element formation is well understood, many questions about the nuclear physics processes and particularly the astrophysical details remain to be answered. Here I focus on advances in our understanding of the origin of the heaviest and rarest elements in the Universe.

Host: Professor Elena D'onghia
