Un equipo internacional liderado por astrofísicos de la Universidad Autónoma de Madrid descubre actividad de cometas en la estrella Φ-Leo
Alexander Knebe ha sido entrevistado por El Pais sobre 'the missing baryon problem'
En el marco del programa internacional Invisibles, enfocado en dos ámbitos descollantes de la investigación en física y cosmología, los neutrinos y la materia oscura, y desarrollado en el Museo Thyssen, el encuentro Miradas cruzadas: arte y ciencia, celebra sesiones y debates abiertos al público.

Dr Guillermo Hägele, has been distinguished with the "Stimulus Award" for young astronomers (under 40 years old) from the Argentinian National Academy of Exact, Physics and Natural Sciences. Dr Hägele obtained his PhD at the UAM, Theoretical Physics Department, in 2008 and held a Teaching Assistant position from 2007 to 2011 in this department.
Following Haloes going MAD, Subhaloes going Notts, Sussing Merger Trees, and Halo Mass Recovery we will now run a three week workshop examining the production and analysis of mock universes which are nowadays routinely used to underpin the science return from large observational surveys such as DES, Euclid & BOSS. We intend to run three tightly coupled ateliers back-to-back in June/July 2014 addressing:
i)The modeling of individual galaxy clusters and their impact on cluster cosmology.
ii)The production of mock galaxy catalogues.
iii)The extraction of observational results from the artificial skies generated during the first two weeks.
This workshop will address the credibility of the simulations and derived mock surveys that are commonly used for large scale structure determination by verifying the various techniques before validating them against observational data.
