Cold Dark Matter
Friday 27th September 2019
Start time : 20:00
Speaker : Dr. Julian Onions
We hear a lot about dark matter in astronomy. Some people consider it a fudge.
In this talk we'll go through the evidence for dark matter and the history of it, and answer the questions in the title.
No particular prior knowledge is assumed so the talk should be enjoyed by all!
Julian is a post-doctural researcher at Nottingham Universirt and works with computer simulations of large fractions of the universe to understand trends in galaxy formation and evolution. Investigating the tools that help us form and analyse such simulations such as halo finders, tree builders and semi-analytic models.
