3:35 pm:
Speaker: Karl Gebhardt, University of Texas, Austin
Subject: Black Holes and Dark Energy through the Eyes of Texas
Refreshments to be served outside 101 Fraser after the colloquium.

Both the central black hole and the dark matter profile play essential roles for understanding the dominant evolutionary processes in galaxies. I will overview recent observations which demonstrate significant differences compared to previous analysis, focusing on black holes at the extreme mass ranges in galaxies. I will also present expectations from future advances in each area, specifically coming from the Hobby-Eberly Telescope Dark Energy Experiment (HETDEX).

Faculty Host: Evan Skillman
