Department Colloquia pres.
Special Astronomy/Physics Seminar | Tidal Stellar Streams as Probes of Dark Matter: Detection and Dynamical Analysis
Khyati Malhan (University of Stockholm)
The talk is intended to provide a short introduction on “stellar stream” systems and their importance in various scientific studies. The other highlight of the talk would be the STREAMFINDER algorithm (an algorithm designed to detect stellar streams in the astrophysical catalogues) and the new panoramic sky map of the stellar streams of the Milky Way halo that we obtained by analyzing ESA/Gaia DR2. Towards the end, I will also mention some of the recent studies that I have been involved in which also employ stellar streams.
