NW3 meeting

De Jager (SRON)

De Jager


Sorbonnelaan 2 Utrecht
At the meeting we will have (short) talks about recent results as well as a discussion about the future of our network in the next decade. For that we have been asked by the NOVA board to define brief road maps for ~3 themes.

Programme outline
10:00 coffee/tea
 10:30-10:45 David Berge "Supernova remnant observations and implications with H.E.S.S."
10:45-11:00 Abigail Stevens "Spectral-Timing of Black Hole X-ray Binaries"
11:00-11:15 Chiara Ceccobello "Coupling jet dynamics and emission: a new approach to investigate black hole jets"
11:15-11:30 Riley Connors "Exploiting mass-scaling physics in black holes"
11:30-11:45 M. Giustini "Witnessing matter accreting onto the central SMBH of NGC 2617"
11:45-12:00 C.V.Silva "Timing the warm absorber in NGC4051 "
12:00-12:15 Patrick Crumley "TBD"

12:15:13:15 lunch
13:15-13:30 Daniele Michilli "First Batch of Discoveries from the LOFAR High-Time-Resolution LOTAAS Survey"
13:30-13:45 Chris Elenbaas "The impulsive phase of magnetar giant flares: assessing linear ßtearing as the trigger mechanism"
13:45-14:00 Andrei Igoshev "From parallax to distance: not easy"
14:00-14:15 Francesca Onori "TBD"

14:15-14:30 Overview future facilities
14:30-15:00 Theme "Accretion, ejection and particle acceleration on all scales"
15:00-15:30 Theme "Extreme physics with compact objects and in their mergers"
15:30-16:00 coffee/tea

16:00-16:30 Theme "Formation and evolution of BHs, NSs and WDs in diverse environments"
16:30-17:00 Overall discussion (what do we miss?), wrap up and tasks

Proposed themes: 
  • Accretion, ejection and particle acceleration on all scales [interacting binaries, jets, AGN, supernova remnants, cosmic rays] -
  • Extreme physics with compact objects and in their mergers [probing gravity, dense matter, tides, r-process and explosive nucleosynthesis with BHs/NS/WD, pulsar (timing), gravitational waves, NS/BH mergers and type Ia supernovae] -
  • Formation and evolution of BHs, NSs and WDs in diverse environments  [stellar evolution, supernovae, formation and evolution of (interacting) WD/NS/pulsar/BH binaries, both in the field and in dense environments]
