Physics Colloquium: Compact Objects in Globular Clusters
Wednesday, Feb 10, 2016
4 p.m. - 5 p.m. Location: SLC 1.102

Dr. Tom Maccarone (Texas Tech)

I will give a broad overview of the dynamics of star clusters, including a summary of some theory work that had long predicted that there would not be dense star clusters with black holes in them.  I will continue by showing observational evidence that black hole do exist in these star clusters, and will explain the discrepancy.  I will also address the implications of finding black holes in these clusters for braneworld cosmologies and for the production of gravitational wave sources.
