Lecture Time Speaker Lecture subject
14:00-14:15 Gideon Yoffe Inferring masses of small exoplanets using transit timing variations
In a star-planet system, Kepler's third law determines that both the planet and its host star orbit the system's center...
14:15-14:30 Lev Tal-Or The planet detected around Barnard's Star
A low-amplitude periodic signal in the radial-velocity (RV) time-series of Barnard’s Star was recently attributed to a p...
14:30-14:45 Evgeni Grishin Planet seeding through gas-assisted capture of interstellar objects
Planet formation begins with collisional-growth of small planetesimals accumulating into larger-ones.
14:45-15:00 Kenny Chun Yu Ng The Surpringing Gamma Ray emission from the Sun
I will discuss recent results on gamma-ray observations of the Sun with Fermi, which revealed many interesting and surpr...
15:00-15:15 Sagiv Shiber Envelope Removal by Jets in the Grazing Envelope Evolution
I conduct three-dimensional hydrodynamical simulations, and show that when a secondary star launches jets while interact...
15:15-15:30 Kartick Sarkar A star formation driven wind model for the Fermi Bubbles
Fermi Bubbles are two large (~10 kpc) gamma ray emitting bubbles observed in the sky towards the Galactic centre.
