Theory Thursday is an opportunity for theorists from CTAC, Caltech, and USC to get together and talk about the latest ideas in astrophysics. Each week's topic is led by a different theorist, who gives a chalkboard-style presentation. A strong emphasis is placed on providing back-on-the-envelope estimates and a discussion of physical arguments. This helps us develop our intuition about the underlying physical principles that guide the phenomena we observe.
Every Thursday, 11am-noon
