Unraveling the Gamma-ray emission in radiogalaxies and their jets
Radio-galaxies are a minority among all extragalactic sources detected in gamma-rays, yet they have excellent potential to study particle acceleration and non-thermal emission in AGN jets. In contrast with blazars, which have jets aligned with the line-of-sight, radio-galaxies have a smaller Doppler boosting factors. The implications are important: First, the distance at which they are detectable in gamma-rays is smaller. Second, the thermal...

Coloquio SO: Spectroscopy's Role in Stellar Astrophysics
To characterize a star, the stellar fundamental parameters such as mass, radius, metal abundance, and effective temperature should be known. Direct measurements of these parameters, especially for single stars, are quite challenging, and indirect methods are often employed to obtain these characteristics. The most effective method for determining these parameters is spectroscopy, which is an analysis technique of spectra. It allows us to...

Journey into the Galactic Heart: Illuminating the Enigma of the Nuclear Star Cluster and the Nuclear Stellar Disc.
The innermost regions of most galaxies are characterised by the presence of extremely dense nuclear star clusters, which sometimes appear together with larger stellar structures known as nuclear stellar discs. Understanding the relation between nuclear star clusters and nuclear stellar discs is challenging due to the large distance towards other galaxies which limits their analysis to integrated light. In this context, the Milky Way’s centre,...

SO Coloquium: Demystifying the Ring(s): Meaning and Paths to Detection
In 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) reported the first image of a black hole in which the event horizon appeared as a dark shadow, silhouetted against the surrounding bright plasma. This image is the product of the extreme astrophysics about the black hole, indelibly marked by strong gravitational lensing that results in an infinite sequence of copies of the emission region. For M87*, the subject of the first image, these images appear...

Meeting on Light Pollution: Challenges and Responses for Monitoring it
Light pollution has a direct impact on the environment, on astronomical observations and on the starry sky as a heritage resource of humanity. Excessive light confuses the biological clocks of humans, animals and plants with its spectral composition similar to daylight. As a result, it makes it difficult to distinguish between day and night and between the seasons to which living organisms are physiologically attuned. Light pollution is...

Outflows from low to high luminous AGNs
Outflows are believed to play a major role in the evolution of galaxies and are said to be ubiquitous within the active galactic nuclei (AGN) population. However, we still lack a comprehensive view of their properties and impact in their host galaxies and the surrounding medium. If we focus on the low luminosity part of the AGN family, in particular in low ionisation nuclear emission-line regions (LINERs), the impact of outflows is still largely...

Coloquio SO: Extracting stellar populations and (mainly) emission line information out of S-PLUS photometry
We present tests of a new method to simultaneously estimate stellar population and emission line (EL) properties of galaxies out of S-PLUS photometry. The technique uses the AlStar code, updated with an empirical prior which greatly improves its ability to estimate ELs using only the survey's 12 bands. The tests compare the output of (noise-perturbed) synthetic photometry of SDSS galaxies to properties derived from previous (STARLIGHT-based)...

Galaxies in pre- and post-collisional stages are an excellent laboratory to study the evolution of galaxies, particularly the triggering and suppression of star formation on galactic scales before and after such interactions. In order to analyze the star formation triggered in these systems, we started a series of studies on 'collisional' galaxies with available integral field spectroscopy (IFS) observations. We use Very Large Telescope (VLT)...

Black holes hold a tremendous discovery potential, and experiments such as the Event Horizon Telescope and its next generation upgrade could provide important cues about their structure. New physics beyond general relativity can modify the structure of black holes and leave imprints on image features, for instance changing the separation between photon rings or generating additional sets of photon rings. Both cases motivate the study of the...

X-ray emission from Symbiotic Stars: a stellar window to the Astrophysics of AGN
Symbiotic stars (SySts) are binary systems in which a white dwarf (WD) accretes material from a red giant star. X-ray studies of SySts reveal an apparent variety of processes which would suggest different origins. In this talk I will briefly review our current knowledge of the X-ray properties of SySts (their classification and physical parameters), in particular I will describe the iconic systems R Aqr and CH Cyg. Finally I will present our...

SO Colloquium: The demographics of small exoplanets
The diversity of the exoplanet population is beyond our imagination. The more than 5000 known exoplanets vastly differ in mass, size, orbital period, dynamics, and host type. Demographic studies, however, aim to find patterns in the population that inform us about their origin, composition, and evolution. Among these features, perhaps the most surprising is the abundance of planets with no analog in the solar system, also known as sub-Neptunes....

SO Colloquium: The evolution of the accretion process: investigating the protostellar phase to constraints planet formation
The accretion process is responsible for the mass building during the star formation phase, but our knowledge of this phenomenon is still not totally understood. On one side, the magnetospheric accretion scenario describes the accretion on pre-main sequence (Class II/III) low-mass stars. However, most of the material is supposed to be accreted during the earliest stages, i.e. the protostellar phase (Class 0/I), when the forming star and its disk...

SO Webloquium: Feeding and Feedback: How to Make a Starburst and What that Means for the Host Galaxy
The cycle of star formation governs the evolution of galaxies. In some local galaxies, the star formation rate in their centers are much higher than other normally star-forming galaxies and may be more similar to galaxies at earlier cosmic times. I present observational results from two archetypal nearby starburst galaxies: NGC253 and M82. First, I will discuss how gas flows to the center of NGC253 along its bar to fuel the extreme burst of...

Low-mass exoplanets are showing a diversity in their densities, ranging from silicate-dominated super-Earths to volatile-rich sub-Neptunes. We have developed a coupled interior-atmosphere model that estimates the composition and interior structure of super-Earths and sub-Neptunes assuming water and CO2 atmospheres. The applications of the model include the homogenous analysis of a sample of multi-planetary systems, as well as the assessment of...

Near-Infrared Observations of Clustered Massive Star Formation in Outflowing Region AFGL 5180
Massive stars are significant throughout the universe, as they impact their surroundings from the early stages of their formation until they die in the form of supernova. Observations in the near-infrared (NIR) of the bright and large-scale (~pc) jets which young stars ubiquitously produce during their formation process can place important constraints on the phenomenon of massive star formation.

J-PAS: a survey for tracing the role that star formation and environment play in galaxy evolution
The processes that explain the evolution of galaxies from the blue cloud to the red sequence are still under discussion. Internal processes, named as mass-quenching, because they are linked to the galaxy mass or AGN feedback, could be responsible of the rapid quench of the star formation in galaxies. Besides the stellar mass, the evolution of the galaxy populations is also a function of the environment. Unlike the mass quenching, the...

Coloquio SO: A holistic approach to exoplanet spectroscopy
During the last two decades, multiple observation techniques have enabled the study of exoplanet atmospheres, informing us about their chemical composition, thermal distribution and transport processes. The most successful techniques include low-resolution transit and eclipse spectroscopy, phase curves, and high-resolution Doppler spectroscopy. In all cases, the extraction of the atmospheric signal presents a challenge, being comparable to or...

Sub-milliarcsecond astronomy with Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescopes
The angular size of a star is a critical factor in determining its basic properties. Together with the distance, it provides the physical diameter of the star which can be used to yield luminosity and mass estimates. Direct measurement of stellar angular diameters is difficult: at interstellar distances stars are generally too small to resolve by any individual imaging telescope. This fundamental limitation can be overcome by several methods...

Gamma rays as cosmic ray tracers: how can CTAO contribute to the cosmic ray physics
Gamma-ray emission produced by interactions of cosmic rays with interstellar matter and radiation fields is a probe of non-thermal particles in galaxies. After decades of instrumental improvements in the field of gamma-ray astronomy, different scales and environments are now accessible and their gamma-ray observations reveal several properties of cosmic rays, especially in our Galaxy. I will provide a short review of the status of the subject...

SO coloquio: Investigating the impact of quasar feedback on the central kiloparsecs of galaxies
Active galactic nuclei (AGN) feedback is the effect that nuclear activity produces in the interstellar and circumgalactic medium of galaxies. Different modes of AGN feedback, which can be broadly divided into radiative/quasar and kinetic/radio, are now considered key processes in the evolution of massive galaxies by regulating black hole and galaxy growth. Indeed, a wealth of observational evidence demonstrates that feedback from supermassive...

An observational study of massive star forming regions at radio wavelengths
In their early stages, massive stars have a profound impact on their hosting cloud as reflected by signposts like shocks, bars and shells of swept material resulting from prominent stellar winds, or photo-ionized (HII) regions produced by energetic irradiance. This activity must be taken into account in the study of the mechanism of formation of either massive stars or nearby lower mass companions affected by such harsh conditions. It is known...

When accretion is as vital as extreme: from massive young stars to binary black holes
Accretion is vital for understanding the properties of a number of astrophysical objects, including massive young stars and black holes. For the former, accretion drives the stellar mass growth and multiplicity through gas fragmentation. It also powers strong outflows that regulate the interstellar medium. For black holes, only accretion allows for electromagnetic detection. Hence, the multi-messenger astronomy, for which the loudest sources of...

ALMA: Planned Sensitivity Upgrades, and Molecular Gas Imaging of a z=0.376 HI-Detected Galaxy
This talk will cover two distinct topics in progress, one programmatic and the other science: I will first discuss the ALMA Wideband Sensitivity Upgrade (WSU), and then I'll talk about ALMA followup of the highest redshift HI detection in the COSMOS HI Large Extragalactic Survey (CHILES) made with the first 178 hours of observing. With regard to the WSU, the ALMA Project is embarking on a partner-wide initiative to at least double, and...
