Title: Searching for cooling flows
Abstract: Gas plays an important role in galaxy formation and evolution. However, it is still unclear how molecular gas forms in the central galaxies of galaxy clusters, and how high-redshift galaxies accreting materials form their interstellar medium. With studies of observations towards galaxies in the local Universe and at high redshifts, we try to understand how galaxies get gas mass. As we know, there is a large amount of hot gas around galaxy clusters revealed by X-ray observations. Although suffering the cooling flow problem, cold gas has been found in many clusters with the cooling rate much lower than the standard cooling flow model. However, the origin of cold gas is not clear. We would like to carry out a sensitive HI survey with FAST in a pilot sample of X-ray selected clusters. These results, together with the gas phase revealed at other wavelengths, might provide us the clue on cold gas formation in these system. Cosmological simulations show that gas accretion is important for galaxy formation at high redshift, and we should observe gas infall at this epoch. Such evidence is rare, though. The heating mechanism of Lyman alpha blobs is still unclear and debated. The extended Lyman alpha emission may be linked to the process of galaxy formation at early epochs. Cooling flows are very likely to be detected in such objects, and we have such an example from our recent work. We would like to search for evidence of such flows around Lyman alpha blobs with less SFR, where feedbacks are weak, by investigating the line profiles of the ionized gas around them. This will help us to understand galaxy formation and evolution at high redshifts. We will present some preliminary results based on our recent ALMA and VLT data.

Title:The most extreme climates in the Universe
Abstract:Planets around other stars ―exoplanets― showcase an amazing diversity. This diversity offers many opportunities to study phenomena that do not occur on our Solar System planets, but which may have occured in the past, or could occur in the future. Ultrahot gas giants offer such an opportunity: these are exoplanets so close to their hot stars that they receive thousands of time the insolation of Earth. As such, they are extreme laboratories to study atmospheric physics, chemistry, and climates. They are also well amenable to remote sensing by space-borne and ground-based observations. Trying to learn more about the most extreme climates in the Universe, we could measure stellar dayside temperatures, metallic rains on the nightsides, and atmospheric escape so strong that it may sculpt the whole population of close-in planets. We have also been using these outstanding exoplanets as trojan horses to benchmark characterization techniques that could eventually be applied to smaller, milder planets. I will discuss some of the recent results my group has obtained exploiting data from a range of space-borne and ground-based instruments.

Title:Revisiting the Underlying Physics for Photoevaporation of Protoplanetary Disks: Towards Generic UnderstandingAbstract:
In a variety of astrophysical problems, we find a situation where a clump of gas is irradiated by ultraviolet and X-ray from radiation sources. An important outcome of this process is that excessive photon energy goes into the heat for the gas, which results in driving winds. This wind-driving process, termed photoevaporation, is essential to determine the fate of the irradiated objects. Protoplanetary disks are one of such objects. The stellar UV and X-ray can yield sufficiently high mass-loss rates that can disperse the disks within 10Myr. The basics of this physical process is, however, not sufficiently understood yet. To address the issue, we have recently developed an analytic model for photoevaporation in a first-principles approach. It is of use to understand the basic physics operating in the vicinity of the wind-launching points. In this talk, I present the analytic model. I also reivew long-standing issues remaining in the field; I think collaborative studies between “disk researchers” and “star researchers” are essential to solve them.

Title:Probing the origin of metals in the early Universe with ancient stars in the Milky Way
Metals (elements heavier than H and He) have played an important role in setting the scene for the biggening of the galaxy formation and the matter production in the cosmic history. Atmospheric chemical compositions of ancient stars in our Milky Way Galaxy provide observational probes of physical properties of stars and supernova explosions that were responsible for producing metals at the time of their birth. In this talk, I will present our studies on the implications of observed chemical compositions in old metal-poor stars on the physical properties of the first generations of stars and supernovae, making use of theoretical core-collapse and Type Ia supernova yield models. I will then discuss future prospects of finding old metal-poor stars in the unexplored outer part of the Milky Way halo with the wide-field instruments, HSC and PFS, on Subaru and of follow-up spectroscopic studies with TMT.
