Study of magnetic fields generated by primordial black holes

Researchers from the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Astronomy (IATE) have participated in a theoretical study of the possibility that magnetic fields were generated from black holes that emerged in the early stages of the Universe.

Researchers developed a method with which they identified more than 5000 new galaxies

Laura Baravalle and María Victoria Alonso from the Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Astronomy (IATE) are leading an international project to search for galaxies in the direction of the disk of the Milky Way.

From dust, we come... Study of the evolution of galactic dust

A research team from the Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Astronomy (IATE), in collaboration with the Numerical Astrophysics Group in Trieste (Italy), developed computational simulations to study how dust in galaxies evolves.

Friends of Friends Meeting (FOF)

El FOF Meeting es una reunión científica internacional organizada conjuntamente por el Instituto de Astronomía Teórica y Experimental (IATE) y el Observatorio Astronómico de Córdoba (OAC). En ella participan tanto investigadores, doctorandos y post-doctorandos del país y del exterior, como así también estudiantes de grado.

Los objetivos principales de la reunión FOF son:

    • Promover el intercambio científico y la cooperación entre todos los participantes de la reunión.
    • Difundir con alcance nacional e internacional el resultado de los trabajos realizados por los investigadores en Argentina.
    • Mejorar los proyectos de investigación a través de la discusión colectiva y la actualización en los tópicos pertinentes.
    • Auspiciar un espacio de disertación en donde los doctorandos nacionales son invitados a presentar sus primeros trabajos en una reunión internacional.
    • Mostrar a la amplia planta de alumnos de grado la oferta de temas de investigación que podrían desarrollar en Córdoba.
