Title:Cosmography as a tool to discriminate among cosmological models

Abstract:Cosmography is a model independent approach, useful to discriminate among concurring cosmological scenarios. After reviewing the main features and shortcomings of LCDM model, we propose a cosmographic approach, based on some polynomial series like Pade’, Chebyschev, etc. to investigate a dark energy and modified gravity. The main result is that series convergence seems a  a powerful tool to extend the matching with the Hubble flow up to high redshift and then improve reliability of cosmological observations. A discussion on suitable datasets is also performed considering the role of observations at low and high redshift. In this perspective, combining data coming from SNeIa, GRBs, BAO, Galaxies and other cosmological distance indicators are crucial to achieve a self-consistent cosmological information at any scale.

Title: Recent researches on stellar superflares with Kepler/Seimei telescope – toward the ALMA/ngVLA science –
Solar/stellar flares are explosive phenomena that release magnetic energy stored around sunspots/starspots. Solar flares often affect the Earth and planetary environment in the form of mass ejections and radiations. Recently, there has been a lot of interest in stellar `superflares’ (more than 10 times the energy of the largest solar flares) from the perspective of how superflares affect exoplanets and whether superflares occur on the Sun. Using data from the Kepler Space Telescope and the Kyoto University’s Seimei Telescope, we have been studying the mechanisms and properties of stellar superflares, especially on solar-type stars, and have found that many of them are the same as solar flares. Recently, we discovered for the first time the huge mass eruption associated with superflare on a solar-type star, and presented the observational evidence that mass ejections may have an impact on the planetary environment. In the future, it is expected that research on the effects of primary stars on planets will be further accelerated, and research using not only visible but also X-ray/radio waves is necessary. Radio research not only has the potential to approach the unsolved particle acceleration mechanism associated with magnetic reconnection, but also has the potential to observe mass ejections and stellar winds, so there are high expectations for ALMA/ngVLA. In this presentation, I will review my research and future plan.

Title:Average structure of the gas convection in the solar photosphere
The solar granulation consists of highly time-dependent
structure of granules and intergranular lanes. The enormous budget of
its kinetic energy is partly transformed and used to drive various
magneto-hydrodynamic phenomena appeared in the photosphere, and even in
the upper atmospheres. Many efforts have been dedicated to characterize
its vertical- and horizontal flow structures of the granulation in
qualitative and quantitative ways. There are two issues; (1) amplitude
relation of upflow/downflow is contradict between observations and
theoretical calculations, and (2) spatial distribution of horizontal
flow is severely hindered. One of the causes of the two issues is
insufficient spatial-resolution in the current observational equipment
for diagnosing the granulation. We have developed our own deconvolution
algorithm that corrects for the instrumental scattered-light, improving
the image quality. The technique provides a relation of strong-downflow
and weak-upflow, which is fairly good agreement with the synthesized
granulation. Moreover, the technique successfully provides a spatial
distribution of horizontal flow, revealing that speed of horizontal flow
is fastest in intergranular lanes. In this talk, I would like to show
our progress in characterizing the vertical- and horizontal flow fields
in the photosphere, and also show my future study for understanding of
the convection-related phenomena in the solar atmosphere.
