ICCUB/DAM seminar: “Planck and Herschel studies of Galactic star formation”
DAM seminar room, 7th floor (Facultat de Física, UB)
I will discuss studies where Planck and Herschel data are used to investigate dense interstellar clouds. The Planck Catalogue of Galactic Cold Clumps (PGCC) was made public earlier this year.

ICCUB Christmas Meeting
DAM's seminar room, 7th floor (724)
The second edition of the ICCUB Christmas Meeting will cover recent work in the research areas of our Institute: Astrophysics, Particle Physics, Cosmology, Gravitation and Nuclear Physics.

Direct detection of dark matter in the Milky Way
Aula Magna Enric Casassas (Facultat de Física, UB)
Cosmological observations and the dynamics of the Milky Way provide strong evidence for an invisible and dominant mass component, that so far reveals its presence only by its gravitational interaction.

Understanding the Atomic Nucleus: Recent Dramatic Advances and Remaining Challenges
Aula Magna Enric Casassas (Facultat de Física)
For about 80 years, physicists have worked on understanding the atomic nucleus in fundamental terms, but only the past decade has brought about a dramatic breakthrough towards achieving this goal.

New Results from the Planck satellite
DAM seminar room in the 7th floor
The Planck satellite has completed its mission to map the entire microwave sky at nine separate frequencies. A new data release was made in February 2015, based on the full mission, and including some polarization data for the first time.

Measuring CMB Polarization with POLARBEAR and the Simons Array: Towards New Constraints on Neutrino Masses and Inflation
DAM Seminar
Measurements of the polarization of the cosmic microwave background (CMB) are rapidly becoming an important tool to test the standard model of cosmology.

“Heart of darkness: General Relativity @ 100?
Aula 103 (Facultat Química)
In November 1915 Einstein finally arrived at the definitive formulation of General Relativity. Before the end of that same year, Schwarzschild found its most important solution.

“Two important milestones in the history of the Universe: The surface of the last scattering and the black body photosphere. The inevitable spectral distortions of the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation”
Aula Magna Enric Casassas (Facultat de Física)
Our Universe is filled by Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation with black body spectrum having a temperature of 2.7K.

“Towards precision Cosmology with HII galaxies”
Barcelona, Seminari DAM (Fac. Física, pl.7)
Present cosmological data (eg., supernovae type Ia, CMB temperature fluctuations, galaxy clustering, high-z clusters of galaxies, etc.) strongly suggests that we live in a flat and accelerating universe, which contains at least some sort of cold dark matter and an extra component which acts as having a negative pressure, as for example the energy of the vacuum (or in a more general setting the so called dark energy), to explain the observed accelerated cosmic expansion.

Quantum Simulations
Barcelona, Aula 103 Facultat Física/Química, Barcelona University
Many-body quantum systems are very hard to describe and simulate in general, since the dimension of the state space grows exponentially with the number of particles, volume, etc. This problem arise in many branches of science, including nuclear, atomic, molecular, and condensed matter physics.

Brilliant Blunders
Facultat de Física, Universitat de Barcelona
Even the greatest scientists have made some serious blunders, "Brilliant Blunders" concerns the evolution of life on Earth, of the Earth itself, of stars, and of the universe as a whole.

Quantifying Dark Energy using Cosmic Lensing
Barcelona, Bellaterra
I will describe the great potential and possible limitations of using the bending of light by gravity (gravitational lensing) to constrain the mysterious dark energy which seems to dominate the contents of our Universe.
