  • Decorative image NCTS Annual Theory Meeting is organized by the National Center for Theoretical Science. The main purpose of this series of annual meetings is to bring together leading physicists to report on their latest research results and to speak on prospects for the future as well as to interact with the physicists especially young researchers in Taiwan. There is one meeting on high energy physics (particles, cosmology and string) and one on condensed matter physics held annually. Condensed matter physics is extremely fascinating, highly dynamic and also fundamental to modern technologies. Therefore, the NCTS Annual Theory Meeting in Condensed Matter Physics this year will focus on the topological and 2D materials. Organizing Committee: Feng-Chuan Chuang (co-chair), National Sun-Yet-Sen ...Read More
  • Decorative image【Speaker】Chung-Pei Ma, Professor of Astronomy and Physics, UC Berkeley 【Abstract】For over three decades, the giant elliptical galaxy Messier 87 in the Virgo Cluster has hosted the most massive known black hole in the local universe. New observational data have substantially expanded dynamical measurements of black hole masses at the centers of nearby galaxies. I will describe recent progress in discovering black holes up to twenty billion solar masses in ongoing surveys of massive elliptical galaxies. I will discuss the implications of this new population of ultra-massive black holes, including its impact on our understanding of the symbiotic relationships between black holes and galaxies, and on the gravitational-wave signals from merging black hole binaries targeted by ongoing pulsar ti...Read More
  • Decorative imageAs part of the celebration activities, we have had public talks and forum by Professor Takaaki Kajita and Professor Shing-Tung Yau on gravity on Aug 2nd. Gravity is everywhere, not just in everyday life, but also in the world of physics research as there are still many things we do not understand about it, such as dark energy, holographic property and quantum informatic property of gravity. The talks of Professor Yau and Professor Kajita have been very inspiring. We also received many questions during the Forum. Prof Yau also shared his own personal experience in research, particularly during his student's time. He encouraged students and researchers to work on original ideas and directions. He also emphasized the importance of reading original papers as they contain the germs of original ...Read More
