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.

Gas inflows and mergers in the cosmic web: building up galaxies from the outside
Barcelona, UAB, Bellaterra
In this talk, I will revisit the physical mechanisms which drive halo’s and galactic spin swings in the cosmic web with a focus on quantifying how much mergers and smooth accretion re-orient these spins relative to cosmic filaments.

Intrinsic alignments: theoretical and numerical insights
Barcelona, Facultat de Ciències, C3/012, UAB
In this talk, I will show how both dark matter and hydrodynamical simulations predict that the morphology of galaxies is correlated with the cosmic web.

Cosmological Simulations of Galaxy Cluster Outskirts
Seminari DAM
The observational study of galaxy cluster outskirts is a new territory to probe the thermodynamic and chemical structure of the X-ray emitting intracluster medium (ICM).

Colloquium – Stars and Galaxies in the First Billion Years after the Big Bang
Aula Eduard Fontserè
The formation of stars and galaxies in the first billion of years after the Big Bang presents many open questions: How and when the first stars and galaxies were formed?
