MOJAVE is a VLBA key project that is studying the structure and evolution of these jets on parsec-scales. Lister and his colleagues are currently conducting large scale multi-configuration VLA and LOFAR surveys of AGN samples to look for kiloparsec-scale indicators of jet precession, and to explore the relation between overall jet power, speed, and gamma-ray emission. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operation Center (NRAO).

Yet, recently these approaches have found success in more commonplace applications such as C compilers and relational databases. In this talk, McCarthy will describe his forays into this area with an emphasis on how formal verification creates practical benefits that would not have been available if not for the reliability of the theorems. 5 p.m. in Cramer 124.

NRAO Colloquium (Fri. 13 Mar, 2015 11:00 am - 12:00 pm)

Dr. Markus Kissler-Patig is the guest speaker for the NRAO/NM colloquium. Kissler-Patig is the director of the Gemini Observatory, which consists of two 8.19-meter telescopes in Hawaii and Chile. His talk is titled "Gemini Observatory – How a Massive Budget Cut Led To Innovative Ideas." Gemini operates two publicly accessible, optical/infrared 8m-class telescopes. Both are equipped with state-of-the-art instruments and adaptive optics systems. Following a restructuring of the international Gemini partnership at the end of 2012, the observatory budget was cut by 25 percent, forcing Gemini into a major change. Kissler-Patig will review the painful yet positive sides of this change and present the innovative ideas that the observatory came up with as a consequence – both in instrumentation and in operations (and some borrowed from radio astronomers). One outcome is that researchers can now apply monthly for telescope time and get their data in four to six weeks. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).

Physics Department Seminar (Thu. 26 Mar, 2015 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

Dr. George Kiladis of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency is the featured speaker for the Physics Department seminar. Kiladis is a research meteorologist at the Physical Sciences Division of the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory in Boulder, Colo. His talk is titled "In Search of the Elusive Eastward Inertio-gravity Wave." Mixed Rossby-gravity (MRG) waves were the first waves predicted by Matsuno's equatorial shallow water theory to be observed in the atmosphere. MRG waves are the dominant control of synoptic scale convective activity over the Pacific, act as seeds for typhoons, and comprise an integral portion of the convective activity within the Madden-Julian Oscillation. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.

Dr. Ken Kellermann of the NRAO will deliver the weekly colloquium. He is a senior scientist at the NRAO and a research professor at the University of Virginia. His talk is "Radio Loud and Radio Quiet Quasars." He will discuss the bizarre circumstances surrounding the discovery of quasars through their strong radio emission, followed by the discovery of their more populous radio quiet counterpart. He will also describe the results of two VLA programs which suggest that the radio emission from radio quiet quasars is mostly due to star formation in the host galaxy. Finally, he will review what we have learned from VLBA observations of radio loud quasars as well as the challenges presented by the recent space VLBI observations of high brightness temperatures in some quasars. 11 a.m. in the auditorium of the Domenici Science Operations Center (NRAO).
