Seminari


Seminars are organized jointly by the Trieste Astronomical Observatory (INAF/OATS) and the Astronomy Unit of the Physics Dept. of the Trieste University (UNI/TS). They usually take place on Wednesdays at 11:30, in the seminar room (Sala Ovale) of Villa Bazzoni in via Bazzoni 2, TS.

MONDAY, FEB 18, 2019 @ 11:30AM -- EXTRA SEMINAR
SPEAKER: Barbara Sartoris (Département d' Astrophysique CEA Saclay , Paris, FR) 
TITLE: XMM analysis of the M2C cluster sample


ABSTRACT: In this seminar I will present results for a sample of 31 clusters selected with Planck and SPT with redshift 0.5< z<1.0 and masses M500> 5 10^14 M_sun. This sample is part of the ERC project “Following the most massive galaxy clusters across cosmic time (M2C)” which principal aim is to study the redshift evolution of cluster mass profiles. This is the first sample selected in SZ for which we have high quality X-ray (XMM) observations that allow us to calculate the thermodynamic and dynamic profiles up to r500 and to characterize the morphology of each cluster. The sample, being SZ selected is expected to be representative of the full cluster population and not biased toward the most concentrate or the most relaxed clusters. For a sub sample of 21 medium redshift (0.5 <z < 0.7) clusters we have good enough data to derive the metallicity profiles as well. I will discuss in the discuss preliminary results on the mass and the metallicity profiles of the M2C cluster sample.

SPEAKER: Franco Vazza (Universita' di Bologna, Bologna, IT))
TITLE: The fascinating periphery of galaxy clusters and its connection with the cosmic web


ABSTRACT: I will review a few ongoing lines of study, based on numerical simulations and observations, in which we try to describe the thermal, turbulent and magnetic properties of the outer regions of galaxy clusters, and expose their possible connection with the larger scales of matter in the cosmic web.
