Visiting Fellowships at Durham

Lead Research Organisation: Durham University
Department Name: Physics

Abstract

This application seeks support to continue the successful visitors programme that we have conducted at Durham since 1983. This application covers the entire spectrum of astronomical research at Durham which includes theoretical cosmology, extragalactic astronomy, astronomical instrumentation, gamma-ray astronomy and high energy astrophysics. The current grant has supported 144 visitors over a 2.5 year period and had led to 85 joint refereed publications involving Durham researchers and visitors. Examples of research projects involving visitors are: the Virgo Consortium's programme of N-body and gasdynamic simulations of the formation of structure in the universe; theoretical modelling of galaxy formation; observational studies of young massive galaxies undergoing huge starbursts; theoretical and observational studies of gas at high redshift; investigation of accretion processes onto black holes of a wide range of sizes, from a few to a billion solar masses; the effects of the growth of supermassive black holes on forming galaxies; observations of groups and clusters at early stages of formation; the detection and interpretation of very high energy gamma rays from exotic objects including microquasars; the design of new instruments for existing telescopes like the Very Large Telescope and future ones like the Extremely Large Telescope.

Description Our visitor programme enabled the completion of a large number of collaborative projects. The results of these projects include:


o The apparent presence of cores in the density profiles
of dwarf galaxies where N-body simulations predict cusps is a potentiial problem for the cold dark matter model. Many observed dwarfs have rotation curves that are compatible with these simulations but others show large inner mass deficits. In Oman et al. (2015) we concluded that one or more of the following statements must be true:
(i) the dark matter is more complex than envisaged by any current model;
(ii) current simulations fail to reproduce the effects of baryons on the inner regions of dwarf galaxies; and/or
(iii) the mass profiles of `inner mass deficit' galaxies inferred from kinematic data are incorrect.

o We found the galactic halos in the hydrodynamical APOSTLE simulations have significantly different properties from those assumed by the "standard halo model" often used in dark matter detection studies. The formation of the galaxy
causes the halo contraction resulting in a steeper density profile between 1.5 and 10 kpc and a flatter slope at smaller radii. With these profiles, the morphology of the predicted
dark matter annihilation radiation signal is in broad agreement at large Galactic latitudes (b > 3) with
observations of gamma-rays by Fermi. At smaller angles, the inferred signal in one of our four galaxies is similar to that which is observed but it is significantly weaker in the other three (Schaller et al. 2015c).

o To aid in preparing for future surveys, such as DESI and Euclid, we have constructed several mock galaxy catalogues tailored to the corresponding survey specifications (http://www.icc.dur.ac.uk/data/). These catalogues include emission line fluxes and dust emission, among other properties.
Exploitation Route Our findings will have significant impact in the academic community of astronomers and cosmologists. One example is that our results are stimulating other groups to further investigate the effects of star formation and gas flows on the properties of the host galactic dark matter haloes.

Description Euclid 
Organisation European Space Agency
Country France 
Sector Public 
PI Contribution Euclid is an ESA mission to map the geometry of the dark Universe. The mission will investigate the distance-redshift relationship and the evolution of cosmic structures by measuring shapes and redshifts of galaxies and clusters of galaxies out to redshifts ~2, or equivalently to a look-back time of 10 billion years. In this way, Euclid will cover the entire period over which dark energy played a significant role in accelerating the expansion.

Description The Ordered Universe 
Organisation University of Oxford
Country United Kingdom 
Sector Academic/University 
PI Contribution AHRC funding: network grant
Collaborator Contribution Each team member, from whatever discipline, contributes to editions, translations, analyses and presentations. In so doing, we are pioneering new ways of working across and between our disciplines. Trusting one another, and learning to learn from the past have presented creative demands. We have challenged academic and public preconceptions regarding the value of past science as 'irrelevant'. Funding for the project has been provided by Durham University's Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies, the Arts and Humanities Research Council, UK, and the Mahfouz Foundation for Interdisciplinary Research, Pembroke College, Oxford
Impact Bringing together a unique configuration of natural scientists, social scientists and arts and humanities scholars, the project integrates the conceptual tools of modern science with the textual methods of the humanities to explore the richness of Grosseteste's thought. Our translations, many for the first time, and which incorporate the groundbreaking concept of translation into mathematics, enable wider access to this wonderful mind, compelling us to make new assessments of his perceptive and inventive imagination.
