Seminar

Monsters of the Cosmos


Dr. Matt Hilton, University of Kwa-zulu Natal (Westville Campus)

Wednesday, 29 March 2017, Physics Seminar Room (3rd Floor) 

Abstract:
The most monstrous objects in the Universe are galaxy clusters, which have masses ranging from 100 - 1000 trillion times that of the Sun. In this talk Dr. Matt will describe the hunt for these massive beasts using X-ray and Sunyaev-Zel'dovich effect surveys, and what follow-up observations at other wavelengths that can tell us about their galaxy populations, the properties of their hot gas atmospheres, and the formation of structure in the Universe.
