ISM Theory in the Era of ALMA

Desika Narayanan (Haverford College) - April 18, 2016 at 12:10 pm

With ALMA entering full-scale operations, the number of CO, [CII] and dust continuum detections of galaxies both near and far are rising exponentially. In this talk, I will utilize a combination of hydrodynamic simulations, chemical equilibrium and thermal equilibrium models to challenge pre-conceived notions of what these lines trace, and discuss how we can use information from ALMA over the next decade to understand high-redshift galaxy evolution.

The seminar will be held in 131A Campbell Hall.
