Weighing Distant Clusters using Gravitational Lensing

Ian Dell'Antonio, National Optical Astronomy Observatory

I will present recent results on the use of Gravitational Lensing to measure the distribution of dark matter in galaxy clusters. The results place significant constraints on theories of the nature of dark matter and of the formation of large structures.

Colloquium starts at 16:00 in Room 245 and lasts about 1 hour including questions. Refreshments are served at 15:30 in room 245.
