The Young and the Restless Stars

Lynne Hillenbrand, Caltech

04 Jun 2015 - 15:30

Young stars associated with regions of recent and ongoing star formation are amenable to study across almost the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Furthermore, they are enigmatically variable over much of this range – due to processes occurring in the inner circumstellar disk, the disk-to-star accretion zone, and perhaps the outflow regions. The talk will give an overview of the relevant phenomena and present several types of state-of-the-art multiwavelength time domain data sets along with their physical interpretation.
