Zehavi hosts modeling galaxy clustering at Aspen Center for Physics
The Aspen Center for Physics was the site of a three-week session organized in part by Idit Zehavi, Case Western Reserve University assistant professor of astronomy.
During that time, 40 participants from all over the world attended the Modeling Galaxy Clustering workshop Zehavi coordinated with Andreas Berlind from New York University and Joanne Cohn and Martin White from the University of California at Berkeley.
According to Zehavi, the meeting brought together theorists, modelers, phenomenologists and observers together to build a framework for interpreting and understanding the flood of data unleashed by recent surveys.
Discussing different approaches to studying galaxy clustering and unraveling galactic evolution, Zehavi said, helps the astronomers see where they agree and disagree and the direction that future research might take. Read more.
Information Technology Services plans to introduce the new MyCASE Portal Framework this week as a link from the current portal banner. New portlets and services will be introduced thereafter. This is an opportunity to review and recreate preferences, and provide feedback via the "Suggestion" link before the site goes live fall semester. Learn more by visiting the Software Center.
In order to assist campus Web maintainers on the main Web server in updating their sites with the new university logo, University Marketing and Communications and Information Technology Services have arranged to automatically replace the remaining old logos on the http://www.case.edu (Aurora) server with the new graphic this afternoon. This action will be seamless to all users and maintainers and will not affect sites housed on other servers. Web sites that have already transitioned to the new logo will not be affected. Send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
