Plenary talks:- Twinkle twinkle dirty stars, how I wonder how you die
In the standard theory of stellar evolution, stars die and become white dwarfs, neutron stars, or black holes, depending on their masses. Many stars go through spectacular explosion and become supernovae before their final deaths. However, this standard theory ignores possible admixture of dark matter – invisible matter that interact only gravitationally and maybe weakly - and their effects on the stellar structure, even though dark matter is known to be the dominant form of matter in the universe. the speaker will briefly introduce work done in CUHK investigating dark matter admixed stars, particularly how they die!
