Nuclear activity and star formation in local Luminous Infrared Galaxies


Start: 12:15h
Speaker: Rubén Herrero (European Southern Observatory)
Place: Sala Alberto Lobo (ICE building, Campus UAB)

Luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs) dominate the cosmic infrared background, and hence their study is crucial to understand galaxy formation and evolution. Furthermore, their extreme environments make them ideal laboratories to probe both star formation, nuclear activity, and the interplay between both…

Luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs) dominate the cosmic infrared background, and hence their study is crucial to understand galaxy formation and evolution. Furthermore, their extreme environments make them ideal laboratories to probe both star formation, nuclear activity, and the interplay between both phenomena. On this talk I will give an overview on the main physical processes taking place in local LIRGs from a multi-wavelength perspective at different spatial scales, from their overall structure to their central hundred-parsec regions, where extreme processes take place hidden behind the dust.

Electromagnetic counterpart of gravitational wave events


Start: 12:15h
Speaker: Nancy Elias Rosa
Place: Sala Alberto Lobo (ICE building, Campus UAB)

In the last few years, the gravitational wave (GW) interferometers LIGO and Virgo proved their ability to detect compact mergers and, with the spectacular case of GW 170817. Thanks to them, it is clear that there is a lot to learn from the prompt identification of the electromagnetic counterpart of…

In the last few years, the gravitational wave (GW) interferometers LIGO and Virgo proved their ability to detect compact mergers and, with the spectacular case of GW 170817. Thanks to them, it is clear that there is a lot to learn from the prompt identification of the electromagnetic counterpart of the GW trigger. This event marked the beginning of a new era for multi-messenger astronomy with a pressing quest for electromagnetic follow up at all wavelengths, particularly in optical bands. During this talk, I will review some of the observations efforts to search and classify possible optical counterparts of GW, including an brief overview of GW 170817.
