POSTPONED KITP public conference – “Stars: The Ultimate Laboratory for Modern Physics” with professor Pascale Garaud
Tuesday October 26 from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been postponed.
The stars have long fascinated humans, but our understanding of their true nature is only about 100 years old. Beginning in the 1920s, the stars have become a wonderful laboratory for modern physics, providing scientists with insight into nuclear physics, quantum mechanics, particle physics and, more recently, turbulence – a field often described as the last unsolved problem in classical physics. In this talk, Professor Garaud will present a selection of what scientists have learned from stars to date, and what they hope to learn in the future from new advances in stellar seismology and high performance computing.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER
PASCALE GARAUD is professor in the department of Applied mathematics to Baskin School of Engineering To UC Santa Cruz. She completed her graduate studies and two postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Cambridge (UK) before moving to the USA. His research focuses on fluid dynamics and magnetohydrodynamics applied to astrophysics. His work involves a range of applied mathematical tools ranging from numerical experimentation using high performance computing to analytical derivations on paper and pen. She became a member of the American Physical Society in 2019.
