Castello Mor, Nuria

Active Galactic Nuclei including:

  • Supermassive black hole with high accretion rates modeling

  • Studies of the AGN's nature using observations with ground based and space-based telescope (IR, Optical, UV, and X-ray)

  • High resolution X-ray spectroscopy

Contini Marcella

  • Theoretical study of AGNs: Calculate the spectrum of Seyfert galaxies, Liners, and Starburst galaxies, by a special computational code, SUMA, which consistently accounts for both the photoionizing flux and the shock.

  • The calculation and interpretation of the spectrum of novae and symbiotic stars using SUMA.


Formiggini Liliana

  • Symbiotic stars: Examination of the light variation at quiescence and at outburst. The spectral behaviour is studied using optical data from the Wise and ultraviolet data from IUE space observations. The emission lines spectrum is fitted with a model which takes into account both photoionization and shock processes.

  • Preparation for TAUVEX: Identification of far UV-sources which have been spectroscopically observed by the CCD at the Florence and George Wise Observatory.


Goldman Itzhak

  • Astrophysical testing of gravity theories, in particular by means of pulsar timing data.

  • Neutron stars and supernovae.

  • Astrophysical turbulence including:

    • Accretion Disks models.

    • Tidal interaction leading to circularization of close binaries.

    • Turbulence in clusters of galaxies.

    • Primordial cosmic turbulence.

  • Astroparticles: using astrophysical observations to constrain candidates for dark matter.
