THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ECCENTRIC

Date: 
10/12/2018 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Location: 
CP 155
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Ann-Marie Madigan (JILA and Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Science, University of Colorado at Boulder)
Type of Event (for grouping events):
The dynamics of bodies on eccentric orbits largely determines the evolution of planetary systems and stars near massive black holes. In this talk I will review eccentric dynamics and demonstrate wide-ranging implications  such as the orbital clustering of Kuiper Belt objects in the outer solar system (which motivates the planet nine hypothesis),  `double’ galactic nuclei, and the tidal disruptions of stars by massive black holes.
