Physics Seminar by Dr. Shantanu Desai

Event Date: 
Thursday, March 23, 2023 -

Dear All,

The Department of Physics, School of Natural Sciences, invites you to a Seminar as per the following schedule:

Title:         Fundamental Physics from Cosmology and  galaxy clusters

Speaker :    Dr. Shantanu Desai

                    Indian Institute of Technology, Hyderabad

Date/ Day:   23rd March/ Thursday

Time:          12 Noon to 1 PM

Mode:          D-217

Abstract:  Astrophysical observations in the last three decades have told us that we live in a preposterous universe described by the standard LCDM model consisting of  70% dark energy, 25% cold dark matter and 5% ordinary baryons. We then discuss  how galaxy clusters  can help us understand the Physics of the above dark sector.  We then provide a survey of  telescopes and surveys which are designed to shed more light on these matters. We also discuss some recent anomalies which have been seen within the standard LCDM model:  Radial Acceleration relation and observations of constant dark matter surface density and how galaxy cluster observations can shed light on whether these observations can be explained within the standard LCDM model.

All are cordially invited
