What holds the world together?

MPP special event
You are kindly invited to join our event and find out what happens when fundamental physics meets social science. The event is hosted by Dr. Jeanne Rubner, Vice President Global Communication TUM. Prof. Nima Arkani-Hamed, world-renowned theoretical physicist from the Institute for Advanced Study (IAS), Princeton, and Prof. Armin Nassehi, famous sociologist from LMU München, give answers to this question – and a glimpse into the future of science. First Arkani-Hamed will give an insight into the evolution of fundamental physics by presenting „The end of space-time“. Nassehi will then bring the social systems into the game. He and Arkani-Hamed will discuss their answers concerning the physical and the social universe as well as their views about science and its role for society. [more]

Going Non-Linear: Contrasting LCDM with the internal properties of galaxies

MPA Special Seminar on Galaxy Formation
The Lambda Cold Dark Matter (LCDM) paradigm has been spectacularly successful at reproducing observations of the cosmic microwave background and of the large scale structure of the Universe. On these scales, the structures contrasted with the theory are in the linear or mildly non-linear regime, where observations are well established and theoretical predictions are robust. LCDM also makes specific predictions in the non-linear regime; in particular, for the evolution, abundance, structure, and substructure of dark matter halos, the sites of galaxy formation. On these non-linear scales a number of potential challenges to LCDM have been identified when confronting the observed internal structure of galaxies with LCDM expectations. I plan to review briefly the status of these challenges and to discuss whether they signal a potential breakdown of the LCDM paradigm or just reflect our incomplete understanding of the complex process of galaxy formation.
