Abstract

4/13 Tomoya Takiwaki (NAOJ DTA) A Clockwork Supernova: precision numerical experiments and their applications
Core-collapse supernovae are flamboyant explosions at death of massive stars. They control the circulation of matter in the universe, and inevitably they affect or are affected by a lot of astrophysical objects, such as supernova remnants, neutron stars, black holes, interplanetary disks and stars. The central engine of the explosion, however, remains in mystery. Elaborate numerical experiments try to uncover that. Stimulated by such precise simulations, phenomenological approaches are recently developed.In this seminar, I introduce the status of the supernova simulations and broaden applications of them.
4/20 Yuki Tanaka (NAOJ CfCA) Magnetically Driven Wind from Hot Gaseous Planets
Several transit observations in the UV band have been suggested that hot Jupiters have high-temperature hydrogen upper atmospheres, and the existence of a large amount of atmospheric escape from the upper atmospheres. For example, a mass-loss rate from the hot Jupiter HD 209458b is estimated to be at least 10^10 g/s. It is thought that heating by the XUV radiation from central stars is the main mechanism to drive the atmospheric escape, but a driving mechanism of atmospheric escape that includes planetary magnetic fields has not been investigated so far. Here I propose a new mechanism in which the atmospheric escape is driven by the dissipation of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) waves. I performed MHD simulations and show that the dissipation of MHD waves in the upper atmosphere can drive a large amount of atmospheric escape and also can heat up the upper atmosphere. I also discuss parameter dependence of the mass-loss rate and atmospheric structures.
4/25 Kohei Inayoshi (Columbia University) Hyper-Eddington accretion flows onto massive black holes
How fast can black holes (BHs) grow? The existence of bright quasars at high-redshift provides a challenging puzzle about the origin of supermassive BHs. To form such massive objects within a billion year, rapid growth of seed BHs is required. We study very-high rate, spherically symmetric accretion flows onto massive BHs embedded in dense metal-poor clouds. We find solutions from outside the Bondi radius at hyper-Eddington rates, unimpeded by radiation feedback. Accretion rates in this regime are steady, and larger than 5000 L_Edd/c^2. At lower rates, the accretion is episodic due to radiative feedback and the average rate is below the Eddington rate. The hyper-Eddington accretion solution is maintained as long as the emergent luminosity is limited to < (10-30) L_Edd because of photon trapping due to electron scattering. We apply our result to the rapid formation of massive BHs in protogalaxies. Once a seed BH forms at the center of the galaxy, it can grow to a maximum ~ 10^5 Msun via gas accretion independent of the initial BH mass.
4/27 Tetsuo Taki (NAOJ CfCA) Toward formation of rocky planetesimals: dust and gas density evolution at a local structure of protoplanetary disks
The radial drift barrier is one of the most serious problem in the planetesimal formation process. We focus on a local disk structure called "radial pressure bump (Whipple, 1972; Haghighipour & Boss, 2003a, b)”. When a protoplanetary disk has the radial pressure bump, dust particles are trapped at a point where gas pressure is radially maximized. We investigate simultaneous evolution of dust and gas density profiles at a radial pressure bump. We find that the bump structure is flattened by a drag force from dust onto gas when the dust-to-gas mass ratio reaches ~1. Although the pressure bump is a favorable place for streaming instability (SI; Youdin & Goodman, 2005), the flattened bump structure inhibits SI from forming large particle clumps corresponding to 100-1000 km sized bodies, which has been previously proposed. If SI occurs there, the dust clumps formed would be 10-100 times smaller, that is, of about 1 - 100 km.
5/11 Masahiro Ogihara (NAOJ DTA) Formation of close-in super-Earths
Recent observations of exoplanets have revealed a large number of close-in low-mass planets (or close-in super-Earths). As of April 2016, 351 systems harbor 877 close-in super-Earths. We can discuss the origin of these planets by comparing observed orbital distributions with results of numerical simulations of planet formation. In this talk, I will introduce our recent papers on formation of close-in super-Earths (Ogihara et al. 2015, A&A, 578; Ogihara et al. 2015, A&AL, 584). I will also show some preliminary results of ongoing projects.
5/18 Takashi Moriya (NAOJ DTA) Superluminous supernovae and their origins
Superluminous supernovae (SLSNe) are newly recognized class of core-collapse supernovae (SNe). Their existence is realized only about a decade ago. They are more than 10 times brighter than other core-collapse SNe. The reasons why they can become very bright are still not understood well. It is currently known that there are two distinct spectral types in SLSNe, namely, Type II (those with hydrogen features) and Type I (those without them). Type II SLSNe show narrow spectral features which are likely from dense circumstellar media surrounding the SN ejecta. I will present the numerical modeling of the collision between SN ejecta and dense circumstellar media and show that the interaction between SN ejecta and dense circumstellar media can indeed explain Type II SLSNe. Origins of Type I SLSNe are more mysterious. I will discuss several works of mine related to the luminosity source of Type I SLSNe. I will especially focus on the Type I SLSN iPTF13ehe which did not show hydrogen features at the beginning but started to show them one year after its luminosity peak. I suggest that the delayed hydrogen features may be an evidence of Type I SLSN progenitors evolving in close massive binary systems.
