Understanding how stars form out of diffuse interstellar gas is a problem that underlies much of modern astrophysics, from the formation of planets to the chemical evolution of our universe.  A key outstanding question is whether magnetic fields contribute to the observed low efficiency of the star-formation process.  In this talk, I will discuss what we have learned about the role played by magnetic fields in star formation, with a particular focus on results from the BLASTPol balloon-borne sub-mm polarimeter.

| Event Location: TRIUMF Auditorium | Speaker: Carlo Barbieri (Surrey U)

Related Upcoming Events:

Correlations - intended as multiple-nucleon mechanisms that cannot be modelled by a pure mean-field potential - are the backbone of our deeper understanding of atomic nuclei. They are manifest in the fragmentation of the spectral strength which is encountered in one-nucleon addition and removal measurements.
